David Bentley Underwear: Boxers and Briefs for Tottenham Hotspur Midfielder

David Bentley Shirtless Football Hunk is Now a Businessman. Whatever happened to our imaginary boyfriend David Bentley? Like, why is he no longer playing football? Apparently, our footballer fell out of love with the game and retired in 2014 when he was only 29 years old.

Here’s what he said back then explaining his decision to retire (via The Guardian): “I’ve given up football. I’ve taken the decision to take my life in a different direction. I’ve just had little baby twins, three months old, and I’ve got a little four-year-old and I want to focus on that. My love for the game went a little bit and I didn’t want to carry on just for the fact of paying me money.”

How Rich is Rupert Grint?

How rich is our favorite redhead Rupert Grint? According to the Daily Mail, the Harry Potter actor is “is worth around £24million”. How much would that be in US dollars? We’re too lazy to do the conversion so you have to convert it yourself. Haha. Okay, if you use the conversion rate at the time this was posted, Rupert Grint is worth US$36.5 million.

That’s a lot of money for a young man of 24 so we’re happy to note that he has a management team that helps him see to it that his hard-earned money does not go to waste. Heaven knows how many child stars ended up in poverty because they did not know what to do with the financial bonanza that came their way. Anyhoo, Rupert’s management group which he calls Clay 10 is apparently headed by his dad, Nigel Grint.

What we find most interesting in the Daily Mail’s report is Rupert’s real estate properties. According to the tabloid, Rupert lives in an 18th century mansion worth £5.4million. The mansion has “five reception rooms, six bedroom suites and indoor and outdoor swimming pools”. We wonder what financial guru Suze Orman will say about the maintenance cost of this mansion. Haha.
