    Explosive new revelations in Bryce Cartwright revenge porn scandal

    Published on Mar. 4, 2017
    An ex-girlfriend of Bryce Cartwright claims the Penrith Panthers star and rugby league identity Lou Zivanovic ‘bullied’ her into having an abortion last November.

    According to The Sunday Telegraph, the woman, who wants to be identified as Miss X, started dating Cartwright in April, 2016,

    Miss X alleges the relationship allegedly ended when she told him she was pregnant.

    The unidentified 24-year-old says Cartwright and former Penrith first-grader Zivanovic pressured her to terminate the pregnancy shortly after she told Cartwright the news.

    The Sunday Telegraph revealed a copy of a contract, allegedly negotiated by Zivanovic on Cartwright’s behalf, in which Cartwright agreed to pay the woman $50,000 to terminate the pregnancy in November.

    Cartwright hit the headlines in December when his former partner Brittany Hura was charged after issuing death threats to the rising NRL star.

    Miss X claims Cartwright was dating both her and Hura and says neither woman knew about the other.

    “I felt I had no other option than to get rid of the baby, the pressure was relentless,” Miss X told The Sunday Telegraph.

    “I was bullied by Bryce and Lou. They showed no compassion towards the baby and me.”

    She also alleges Zivanovic badgered her with text messages and says Cartwirght made it clear he wanted nothing to do with either her or the baby if she decided not to terminate the pregnancy.

    Miss X claims she has since given the $50,000 Cartwright allegedly paid her to charity.

    Panther Bryce Cartwright abortion pay-off: ‘Middle man’ brokered $50,000 deal

    Cartwright tells of revenge porn nightmare
    Panther’s ex-girlfriend charged after threatening to kill him
    A RUGBY league “fixer” was called in to negotiate a $50,000 abortion deal after a star player’s girlfriend ­revealed she was pregnant.

    The 24-year-old former girlfriend of Penrith Panthers second-rower Bryce Cartwright, who has asked to be identified only as Miss X, had the procedure in November because she felt Cartwright and club intermediary Lou Zivanovic left her no other choice.

    She has since given the money to charity.


    Lou Zivanovic acted as the fixer in the abortion pay-off negotiation.

    Cartwright and Miss X dated for several months before she fell pregnant.
    A contract obtained by The Sunday Telegraph ­reveals the extraordinary lengths the Panthers and Cartwright’s supporters were willing to go to to safeguard his reputation and future prospects.

    The story of Miss X’s pregnancy has been bubbling along on social media for several months and led to ­another former partner of Cartwright, Brittany Hura, being charged with threatening him in a “revenge porn” attack late last year after she learned both women had been dating him at the same time.

    It’s an explosive story of sex, fame, ambition and money in sport, but at its ­centre is a traumatised young Sydney woman who is still ­receiving grief counselling.




    Contract details between Bryce Cartwright and Miss X.

    She has today decided to tell her story to stop “this awful bullying” happening to anyone else. She said she had no desire to hurt Cartwright.

    The pair dated for several months from April but broke up when she fell pregnant.

    Miss X said neither woman knew the other was involved with Cartwright.

    Miss X said she regretted giving in to Cartwright and former Panthers player Mr Zivanovic, a club life member and fundraiser, who also tried to persuade her to sign a “hush hush” confidentiality agreement, which she refused.

    “I felt I had no other option than to get rid of the baby, the pressure was relentless,” she said. “I was bullied by Bryce and Lou. They showed no compassion towards the baby and me.”


    Miss X said at one point she asked Mr Zivanovic why he was badgering her with text messages to sign the contract.

    “He said ‘look this is not a personal thing; I have known Bryce for 15 years’. I said, ‘You must be a family friend or an uncle’ and he said ‘No, this is really a business thing,’” she said.

    “It’s actually about rugby league more than anything else.”


    A text message from Miss X to Cartwright.
    In one SMS exchange, Mr Zivanovic told Miss X: “I really don’t feel there is a reason why we need to meet, putting aside the $$$$, you have one of two choices, which one?”

    In another exchange Mr Zivanovic questioned why Cartwright should pay her legal fees. She replied: ­“Because he introduced a representative when I was ­already 16 weeks and left it all to the last minute.

    “Bryce lied and misled me from the beginning and said no one else was involved, so really he put me in a position where I had to get a lawyer ­involved.”

    Mr Zivanovic said he would discuss it with Cartwright “in the morning”.

    He negotiated the contract with a solicitor employed by Miss X and it was signed by Cartwright and witnessed by the chief financial officer of Mr Zivanovic’s property development company Bradley Weston.


    An exchange between the pair.
    The contract says: “(Miss X) and Bryce engaged in a ­relationship in August, 2016, which resulted in (Miss X) conceiving a child.” It goes on to state that the pair agreed to terminate the pregnancy for a payment of $50,000.

    “Bryce will deposit the settlement sum into (Miss X’s) solicitor’s trust account within 24 hours of execution of this deed by the parties,” it says. “Once (Miss X) has ­received the settlement sum she will terminate the pregnancy forthwith.”

    Miss X said she was willing to be a single mother and that she and Cartwright were dealing amicably with each other. She believed he was supportive of her decision to raise her child alone.


    A text exchange between Lou Zivanovic and Miss X.
    “From the start he said he didn’t want to be a father, or to have anything to do with the baby and I respected that and thought I would do it alone,” she said.

    SMS messages between them reveal her agony as she faced the reality of choosing between the abortion or proceeding with the pregnancy.

    In one exchange, Cartwright texted her: “Would you honestly do it on your own?” She replied: “If that’s how you feel and I decide to keep it then yes.”

    He wrote: “OK, then well at least you know how I feel now. I’ll give you a few days to think.”

    In another exchange he wrote: “You do realise there’s no way I’ll be at the birth?”

    Miss X: “Yes, I know. I thought about it. And that’s up to you.”


    A text exchange between Lou Zivanovic and Miss X.
    Cartwright: “And we won’t keep in contact at all.”

    Miss X: “OK. That’s your decision.”


    “Minimal” support from Cartwright was expected if the baby was born.
    But when she asked him for details of his family medical history at the suggestion of her doctor, he withdrew.

    She said: “Bryce was trying to keep the pregnancy a ­secret from his family. I kept insisting that they had a right to know and he kept pushing the conversation.

    “I took matters into my own hands and informed his parents about what was going on. It was then, after speaking to his mother, that I found out he was in a long-term relationship with his now-ex­girlfriend Brittany Hura.

    “Bryce was living this ­double life that his family and club were aware of, but his girlfriends had no idea about.”

    PANTHERS’ ON-FIELD WOES

    She said Cartwright blocked her from his social media and stopped taking her calls, insisting she only talk to him through Mr Zivanovic.

    “I felt like the girl they had thrown away,” she said. “Lou made it very clear to me that if I kept the baby I could ­expect only minimal support from Bryce. I have to travel overseas for my work. I was basically boxed into a corner, it kept going on and on.

    “I don’t believe in abortion, that’s what I have said the whole time. I told Bryce and then Lou again and again that I understood his feelings, but that we had to find some way to meet in the middle because even though he didn’t want a baby, I didn’t want to get rid of the baby.”


    Zivanovic as a Panther in the early 1980s.
    She also wrote a letter of complaint to the club but “have yet to hear back”.

    Miss X said: “The NRL needs to investigate and take all matters of this nature seriously and not allow these ‘stars’ to think that just because of their status, they can get away with things like this.

    “Are these the type of role models that the NRL are proud of and parade around for future generations to look up to? Up until today I have still not gotten any apology from Bryce, Lou or the club.”

    Miss X said she finally agreed to the termination ­because she lost confidence she would be able to support herself and a child.

    “I was full of regret and wish that I had never taken the money. That’s why I gave it (the money) all away. That was the only blessing that came out of this.”

    Cartwright and Mr Zivanovic have declined to ­comment.

    HANDBALL TO OTHERS NO WAY TO TREAT ISSUE

    COMMENT: In rugby league, there’s always someone who can make any problem go away.

    Usually, that problem involves a woman — and the solution involves money.

    Every club has a footy fixer; a guy who cleans up every mess. In the case of Bryce Cartwright, the “footy fixer” was Lou Zivanovic, who is quaintly known as a “club fundraiser”, the problem was a pregnant young woman and the price of her silence was $50,000. Or so they thought.

    Rather than deal with the fact he had got a woman pregnant, Cartwright handed the responsibility over to the men at his club, the Panthers.

    According to Miss X, she felt “bullied” and “pressured” into terminating the pregnancy, which Zivanovic insisted was a “business thing” rather than a personal matter.

    The saddest thing about this disgusting episode is that
    it illustrates the vast gap between how men and women are regarded at some footy clubs. Men are absolved of all responsibility. Women are just another distraction that needs to be dealt with.

    After any allegation raised by a woman, influential football club types will often privately label them “gold diggers”, “mad”, “crazy” and claim they’ve set a “honey-trap”.

    Board members, chairmen, senior officials and other players stand up to protect the “family man” or “good bloke” who’s made a few “bad decisions”.

    And it’s true that high-profile, talented sports stars are sometimes preyed upon by women more interested in fame and money than a genuine connection.

    But at the end of the day, everyone must be accountable for their own actions. In this situation “Miss X” should be praised for speaking up.

    It’s rare for a woman to emerge from an encounter
    like this with a football club with any shred of dignity left — but this young woman is refusing to accept the way she was treated. — JESSICA HALLORAN

    This is disgusting



  • What Tim Simona is alledged to have done in many ways pales into insignificance to what this player, heavily backed by his club, did to this woman.



  • Yeh this is very very messy… Not nice at all when you read the details

    I don’t like this on both ends.
    She could have declined the money. She had a choice.
    It’s her body after all.



  • Bryce sound like a real charmer. He also can’t tackle.

    Correct, she did sort of put her career above being a single mother and now regrets, maybe now suffering depression. May have been a late term abortion meaning she actually felt the foetus making it worse. Why weren’t both parties taking/discussing precautions. I know it is sort of expected (unfairly) that girls are on contraception because it is so common. The pressure part was not nice but she eventually had a solicitor who should have given her more options. He is a deceitful boy but girls will get attracted to attractive young hunky guys giving the guy too many options.



  • This really shouldn’t be played out in public.

    True. DId anyone see the look on Matt Moylan’s face on the Ch 9 news when he walked out in front of Cartwright?
