Wikipedia has named four celebrities who took out super-injunctions to prevent details of their extra-marital dalliances being revealed in the press, The Telegraph reports.
The disclosures were made public on the site by users updating the profiles of the four celebs in question.
While Wikipedia’s administrators were quick to delete the references from the celebrities’ pages they remain accessible in an archive.
The married Premier League footballer who took out a super injunction to stop details of his alleged affair with ex Big Brother contestant Imogen Thomas came in for the most exposure with his profile updated at least 10 times with references to his supposed playing away from home.
“[He has] lost his discipline and had been playing away from home with non [sic] other than Imogen Thomas from Big Brother,” one user wrote.
An actor who obtained a super injunction to prevent Manchester prostitute Helen Wood from going public about him allegedly paying her for sex was similarly “outed” on his profile page.
Under the charity heading of the actor’s profile a user wrote that he was a “patron [of a] prostitute in the Manchester area”. Another changed his middle name to “super–injunction”.
Wikipedia said that it could lock the pages to stop users from editing the celeb’s profiles if need be.
