Model Says R&B Star Craig David Stalked Her on Myspace

Taylor Ray Lewis told News of the World that she was bombarded with Myspace messages from R&B singer David she decided it was just a chancer posing as the millionaire singer. Time after time she logged onto her page on the social network site to find emails from “Craig” begging for a date. The 25-year-old beauty who will soon be seen on hit TV show Wife Swaptold the News of the World: “At first I wasn’t sure if it was really Craig…or just some weirdo.” But unfortunately for Taylor, it turned out to be both. Now she exposes the B-side of chart star David a “complete prat” who trawls MySpace looking for one-night stands using chat-up lines even cheesier than the lyrics of his songs. And when he finally got Taylor into his bed in a flat where videos of himself singing were projected onto the walls, she discovered he was far from Hot Stuffthe title of his latest single. “He was just interested in one thing himself!” she says. “I was a piece of apparatus he was using for his pleasure.” “He was saying all these lines that could have come out of any of his songsthings like You don’t know what you do to me’ and I’ve been waiting so long for this’. “But he kept having to stopand I could tell he didn’t really care whether I was there or not.” In fact David, 26, was so bad in bed it persuaded her to go back to her estranged husband Mark. “Sleeping with Craig David made me realise what I was missingand that my husband was a much better man than him,” says Taylor who will appear with Mark on Channel 4’s Wife Swap next month. David found the mum-of-two after trawling Myspace in May. Taylor, of Richmond, North Yorks, was gobsmacked. “I ignored his messages for ages because, even though they came from a site called Craigdavidpersonal, I couldn’t believe a star like him would have to go on MySpace to meet girls,” says Taylor. “But then in July, I broke up with Mark and started to wonder if it was really him. “The messages were very bland. He said things like, When are you going to let me take you out for dinner?’ and We should go for a drink sometime’. Finally, I asked him How do I know you are not a stalker?’ and he said the only way to know was to meet him in person.” They agreed to meet at a Chinese restaurant in Hampstead, north London. “It was quite a shock to see that it was him,” she says. “He had never been someone I fancied, but he had clearly been working out and he looked quite fit.” During their meal she got her first hint of the ego-tripping that was to come. “He was very sure of himself. He even clicked his fingers to attract the attention of the waiters,” says Taylor. “He ordered four bottles of wine and loads of food but hardly ate anything and didn’t touch the drink. “We got talking about cars and Top Gear. I told him my favourite car was a BMW X5.” David asked her back to his luxury mansion flat. “He said we could watch a DVD. I knew what he was up to but I thought I’d go along to see what happened,” says Taylor. “When we drove through the gates to the mansion a porter came out to park the car. Bizarrely the man called him Sir David. “When we got to the flat it was clear who was the love of Craig’s life. Himself. “Images of his videos were being projected onto the walls and he had pictures of himself and gold discs everywhere. “There was a huge TV in the living room and three TVs in the bathroom. After he showed me round the house, he said I’m tired, it’s been a really busy day. Do you want to lie down with me?’ “I thought it was a hilarious line. I asked him, Have I got mug written all over my face?’ “But he just laughed and said he wanted to watch a DVD and the TV was better in the bedroom. So we went in and I sat on the edge of the bed and kept my clothes on while he stripped down to his boxers and vest. “After about an hour I said I ought to go. He said Why don’t you stay the night?’ It was hilarious. Everything he said was an attempt to get me into bed!” She insisted on leaving but a few days later they were texting each other. And then came the second dateat his flat. “He gave me several drinks and we were flirting with each other in his kitchen,” says Taylor. “I joked with him about what Elton John had said about himthat there was no better singer in England. He agreed! I asked him how many other girls he had round there. He said I was the first. I knew he was lying, but it was flattering that he wanted me.” “We went into his bedroom to watch a film, but when we lay down he started kissing me. I was a little bit scared as he was the first person I had been with since I met my husband six years ago. “Earlier he had said to me that I was the only one he wanted, and that he liked me because I was not just some airhead. “He was saying, I really, really like you’ and was being quite gentle and considerate and so I thought Why not?’ and started kissing him back. “Then he took his clothes off and I was quite impressed. He was very muscly and manly. Then he took my bra and knickers off. “He seemed determined to control everything. He took my knickers and bra off and before I knew it he was between my legs. “But once we started having sex it was a real let down. It seemed like he just wanted to get it over with. I was not really enjoying it. I began to think what am I doing here?’ “Then he told me to turn over and that was when I started to feel used. He was doing nothing for me, it was just him doing what he wanted. “Afterwards he went out of the room and got dressed. I felt ashamed and said I had to go. He just said ‘OK. I’ll text you’. That was it.” A few weeks later Taylor found out about David trawling Myspace for other girls. “Other friends told me they had received messages from him asking them on a date. Now I feel so embarrassed,” she says. Later she texted him: “How are you? Are you still stalking the Myspace models?” He replied: “Don’t put yourself down, that’s how I met you.” Taylor says: “I just thought You complete prat’. He’s so arrogant and just thinks he’s better than anyone else.” A spokesman for David yesterday told the News of the World his client did not deny dating Taylor because he dated many girls and couldn’t remember them all, but the star denied trawling the internet to find them. Taylor got back with husband Mark in October and was picked for Wife Swap after she applied for work with various TV programmes. Mark knew about her dalliance with David. He says: “Doing Wife Swap seemed like it might help us move on and forget what happened with Craig.” On the show Taylor had to move in with a falconer in Devon. “There 48 pets in the housesnakes, rats, gerbils, snails, ferrets, six cats, four dogs and even locusts,” says Taylor. “It was one of the worst experiences of my life.”
