History With Ex-Wife

Nicky was also supposedly married at one point. He was in a seventeen year-long relationship with Lesley Clarke, which bore two children. In 2017, Nicky’s ex Lesley shared that the duo never got married.

It all started out as a misunderstanding and only their close family knew. Of course, the claim seemed rather peculiar as Lesley took Nicky’s name. The truth about Nicky and Lesley’s relationship was revealed in her statement published by the Daily Mail on 18 March 2017.
