Bonnie Maggs, who married Paine in 2016 and has two children with him, said that as a family they “put the matter to bed” and moved on in life
Tim Paine’s wife Bonnie Maggs is “frustrated” that the cricketer “sexting scandal” recently leaked and says she has already forgiven her husband and that it is injustice that the matter is dragging on.
Paine gave up the test captain on Friday after his four-year allegedly lewd conversation with a then-colleague recently came to light.
Maggs, who married Paine in 2016 and has two children with him, said they had “put it to bed” as a family and moved on in life.
“I had my time to get angry and vent and get upset and we fought and we talked and then we both decided to get on with life and do it together,” she told News Corp her husband.
“I’m a bit frustrated that it was all brought up and aired in public when we put it to bed years ago. I’ve moved forward since then. I feel like there will be a lot of injustice when it is pulled back out. ”
The veteran Australian wicketkeeper had sent several inappropriate messages to a colleague at Cricket Tasmania in 2017, admitting his mistake at a press conference.
Maggs admitted she was shocked after learning about the incident.
“I felt betrayed, and I felt hurt, upset, and angry. I also felt gratitude for being so honest with me,” she said.
