Tim Paine and brother-in-law ‘sent X-rated messages to the SAME woman’


Tim Paine’s brother-in-law was investigated for allegedly sending lewd text messages to the same woman the ousted cricket captain sent a ‘d**k pic’ to.   

Shannon Tubb, 41, was forced out of his coaching role at Cricket Tasmania after a 2018 probe into his alleged conduct.

Tubb, a left-arm spinner who represented Tasmania in the late 1990s, has since moved on to coach at Adelaide’s Prince Alfred College – an elite private school boasting many of the finest young cricketers in the state.

Just days after the bombshell revelation Australian Test wicketkeeper Tim Paine (pictured with wife Bonnie) would be standing down as captain over a sexting scandal, it has now come to light his brother-in-law also allegedly sent X-rated messages to the same women

Daily Mail Australia contacted the sporting body for comment about the probe into Tubb’s alleged actions, as well as his abrupt departure from his high-level role.

The organisation did not deny the accusations but remained tight-lipped about the man married to Paine’s sister.

‘Cricket Tasmania will not be commenting on employee relations issues,’ a statement read.

An investigation by Cricket Tasmania into Tubb’s alleged explicit texts occurred at the same time Paine’s probe by Cricket Australia was also taking place, the Herald Sun reported.

The simultaneous inquiries in mid 2018, cleared Paine of ‘any breach of the code of conduct’ while Tubb was forced out of his job. 

The woman at the centre of both inquiries is alleged to have been a junior staff member within Cricket Tasmania.

Both Cricket Australia and Tubb declined to comment on any of the new accusations.

Paine, 36, stepped down as Australia’s Test cricket captain on Friday amid revelations of what he sent the woman on November 22 and 23, 2017.

The wicketkeeper sent a photo of his penis to the female co-worker along with a stream of X-rated text messages, many of which are too raunchy to publish.

‘Will you want to taste my d**k?? F**k me, I’m seriously hard,’ one of the messages sent to the Cricket Tasmania employee read.

Paine, who has led the team since the Sandpapergate ball-tampering scandal in 2018, held a press conference at 2.30pm on Friday where he tearfully apologised and announced he would step down.

‘It’s an incredibly difficult decision, but the right one for me, my family, and cricket,’ he said. Paine is available for selection for The Ashes series, but his place in the team hangs by a thread.

Tim Paine’s lewd text exchange

[Evening of November 22, 2017]

PAINE: I like good girl… but this other one sounds interesting.

WOMAN: When I’m good I’m good. When I am bad I am brilliant.

PAINE: Brilliantly bad??

[Morning of November 23, hours before Paine took to the field] 

WOMAN: I will think naughty thoughts about you whilst we watch the TV.

PAINE: I’m cracking! Ha ha. Naughty thoughts like what? I’m about to give something firm a pull…

WOMAN: Ha, sorry I’m getting ready for work … it’s a big day for us kids.

PAINE: Will you want to taste my ***?? F*** me, I’m seriously hard.

WOMAN: I thought we were resting hands.

PAINE: Can’t rest them when I’m this hard!! Need to ease the tension … Finish me off with those lips then 😉

[Paine then sends a photo of his penis] 

PAINE: Finish me off right now!!!

The lewd messages were sent on November 22 and 23, 2017, the eve and morning of the first Ashes Test at the Gabba in Brisbane.

Cricket Australia was not aware of the messages until after Paine was appointed Test captain in March 2018 in the wake of the ball-tampering scandal.

Paine was brought in as the saviour of Australian cricket after captain Steve Smith and vice-captain David Warner were suspended, along with opener Cameron Bancroft.

The trio was caught on camera using concealed sandpaper to rough up the ball during the tour of South Africa.

Cricket Australia is believed to have found out about the sexting in June 2018 and launched an investigation, along with Cricket Tasmania.

The woman complained in 2018 about ‘Mr Paine’s sexually explicit, unwelcome and unsolicited photograph of his genitals in addition to the graphic sexual comments’.

She is said to have been taken aback by the comments and pornographic photo, which she found offensive.

However, the complaints were only made about seven months later when the woman was charged with stealing. Those charges are still before the courts.

Cricket Tasmania chairman Andrew Gaggin said the woman was earlier sacked by the organisation, but did not bring the messages up at the time.

Mr Gaggin said the organisation investigated the complaint as soon as it was received but ‘determined the interaction was consensual, private, occurred on the one occasion only, was between mature adults and was not repeated’.

‘Cricket Tasmania clearly does not condone this type of behaviour and addressed the matter directly with Tim Paine,’ he said.

‘However, because of the consensual nature of the actions it was determined that no further action was required or appropriate.’

Paine's wife Bonnie, whom he has been married to for five years, was aware of the messages at the time but chose to stick by him

Paine said at his press conference that he was exonerated by these investigations, which found he did not breach the code of conduct.

His wife Bonnie, whom he has been married to for five years, was also aware of the messages but chose to stick by him.

‘Although exonerated, I deeply regretted this incident at the time, and still do today,’ he said on Friday.

‘I spoke to my wife and family at the time and am enormously grateful for their forgiveness and support. 

‘We thought this incident was behind us and that I could focus entirely on the team, as I have done for the last three or four years. 

‘However, I recently became aware that this private text exchange was going to become public.

‘On reflection, my actions in 2017 do not meet the standard of an Australian cricket captain, or the wider community. 

‘I’m deeply sorry for the hurt and pain that I have caused to my wife, my family, and to the other party. I’m sorry for any damage that this does to the reputation of our sport.’

Paine announced his resignation in a statement on Friday afternoon and held a press conference and 2.30pm on Friday where he tearfully apologised

The junior staffer interacted with Paine on and off for about a year, and both parties were flirtatious in the leaked messages.

But conversation took a sudden turn with the cricketer’s explicit messages just before she resigned from Cricket Tasmania.

She sent a letter to Cricket Australia and Cricket Tasmania, as well as the Australian Human Rights Commission, complaining of sexual harassment.

Paine broke down in tears at his press conference where he apologised to all those he hurt and let down, including Australian cricket fans.

He said he decided to resign because the messages were about to become public, and he didn’t want to be a distraction during The Ashes, which begin on December 8 in Brisbane. 

‘I believe that it is the right decision for me to stand down as captain, effective immediately. I do not want this to become an unwelcome disruption to the team ahead of what is a huge Ashes series,’ he said.

‘I have loved my role…’ he said, his voice cracking as he wiped away a tear, ‘as captain of the Australian cricket team.

‘It’s been the greatest privilege of my sporting life to lead the Australian men’s test team. I’m grateful for the support of my teammates and proud of what we’ve been able to achieve together.

‘To them, I ask for their understanding and forgiveness. To Australian cricket fans – deeply sorry that my past behaviour has impacted our game on the eve of the Ashes.

‘For the disappointment I have caused to fans and the entire cricket community, I apologise. I’ve been blessed with a wonderful, loving and supportive family, and it breaks my heart to know how much I’ve let them down.

‘They have always stood by me, been my most loyal fans, and I’m indebted to them for their support.’

Cricket Australia chairman Richard Freudenstein minutes earlier issued a statement on Paine’s behalf, announcing the resignation as Test captain.

‘Tim felt it was in the best interests of his family and Australian cricket to take this decision to step down as captain,’ he said.

‘The Board has accepted Tim’s resignation and will now work through a process with the National Selection Panel of identifying and appointing a new captain.

‘While the Board acknowledges an investigation cleared Tim of any breach of the code of conduct regarding this matter some years ago, we respect his decision (to resign).

‘CA does not condone this type of language or behaviour.

‘Despite the mistake he made, Tim has been an exceptional leader since his appointment and the Board thanks him for his distinguished service.

‘Tim will continue to be available for selection in the Test team through the Ashes summer.’

Paine’s wife Bonnie, a cosmetic surgery aesthetic nurse at Sanctum Medical Aesthetics in Hobart, was in January bizarrely mistaken for an American folk singer by Indian media.

The mum-of-two often shares happy snaps with her children and wicket keeper husband on Instagram.

The born and bred ‘Tassie girl’ seemingly has her hands full as she juggles motherhood with her husband’s cricket schedule.

The Indian reports appear to have gotten their wires crossed with an American performer who goes by the same name.

The musician Bonnie Paine was born in Oklahoma, where she grew up playing music with her sisters.

Her website biography says she can play numerous instruments and is a founding member and songwriter of internationally touring folk band Elephant Revival.

Bonnie and Paine said ‘I do’ surrounded by friends and family at Home Hill Winery in Tasmania in 2016. 

Bonnie gave birth to their first child, Milla Elizabeth, in June 2017.

‘Still can’t believe how perfect she is,’ she wrote on Instagram alongside a picture of Paine and the newborn.

The couple then welcomed ‘pure perfection’, Charlie Thomas in September 2018.
