There were even insiders who said Duncan and Patrick had a bust-up in the locker room. However, Duncan came out to defend his mate and said all the revelations were fake. 

He said, “I know there was a lot of talk throughout the year regarding Sharpie and that was all a complete fabrication as well. My divorce had nothing to do with anything except what was between me and Kelly-Rae, and that’s where I’d like to keep it.”

Furthermore, another allegation against Sharp was that he was having an infidel relationship with ABC7 news meteorologist Cheryl Scott. 

Cheryl took to Instagram to address the rumors and completely denied everything.
