IRENE, South Africa (AP) — Landon Donovan is telling SI.com he will take responsibility if a woman’s claim that he made her pregnant proves true.
SI.com says a British tabloid is ready to release a story on the unidentified British woman’s claim, and the American midfielder told the website that he was “informed of the possibility during the World Cup, and if I need to take responsibility, then I will provide the appropriate support.”
Donovan said this is a private matter and he won’t comment further at this time. Donovan’s agent had no comment, referring questions to the player’s statement.
Donovan is separated from his wife. They have no children.
