Controversial West Indies cricketer Tino Best has revealed that he is a “man whore” who has slept with between 500 and 650 women. The 34-year-old fast bowler claims to have bedded multiple women after his relationship with former partner Melissa, with whom he had his son Tamani, broke down.
In his new book, ‘Mind The Windows’, which is released later this month and has been seen by MailOnline, Best tells the story of how he would not be intimidated by any female and would approach any that he was interested in.
He wrote: “I love girls – and girls love me. I reckon I’m the best-looking bald-headed guy in the world. I joke about being the black Brad Pitt! Everywhere I went as a cricketer, I’d talk to girls, date girls and sleep with girls. I reckon I’ve slept with anywhere between 500 and 650 girls, all around the world.”
Best also revealed that there was an second motive for trying to pull girls on a regular basis.
When he first came into the Barbados team, he said that he was desperate to impress the rest of the squad and be accepted in their “brotherhood”.
He says that he would get “points” if he could pull a girl – thus earning respect in the changing room. In the end, he became somewhat of a party animal and regularly swooned over the most gorgeous women around the world – some of whom he would take out.
He admitted: “I’d pick and choose who I wanted to date. I used to go on five or six dates a week, all with different girls. So, yes, I was a man whore. I’d have to juggle them round. One on one day, another on another day. I was young and loving the lifestyle.”
But what does Best’s mum think of his exploits? He explained: “My mum said she didn’t mind me having lots of girls – if I was careful. And there’s one thing I never did – I’d never lie to a girl. I’d always tell them straight: I don’t want a relationship and all I’m interested in is having fun. No relationship, no stress. It was one bit of advice Floyd (Reifer, former team-mate) always used to tell me. You don’t have to tell girls lies. Just be honest.”
