King Cepheus’ daughter Andromeda (some may remember her from her almost death at the hands of the Kraken) has been caught cheating on long-time hubby and hunky hero of Greece, Perseus, with a soldier who was formerly employed by her dead Uncle Phineas.
Word of the scandal came out just a few years after the bloody battle slash wedding feast celebrating the union of Andromeda and Perseus, when a palace maid boasted she had seen the soldier and ‘Dromeda canoodling in the courtyard together, while Perseus was on a media tour promoting his new line of Gorgon head sacks!
“It was so juicy!” our source exclaimed, “There I was, just walking around, cleaning up sacrifices, when I saw them sneaking off together all mysterious and such, I followed them and they spilled all the deets! I even saw them worshipping Dionysus, if you know what I mean… It’s the shocker of the century!”
According to the source, Andromeda also tipped off Phineas’ men on the night of the wedding, hoping Phineas and his men could come stop the wedding and whisk her away from Perseus – but I guess they just weren’t fast enough to nab the Grecian beauty. Maybe they should ask Perseus to borrow his winged sandals, LOL!
Unfortunately, reps of Andromeda could not be reached for comment.
Oh and BTW, rumour has it our Gorgon-head wielding hero Perseus is the jealous type, so our soldier-in-love better run and hide as fast as he can, or buy a Gorgon sack to put on his head! LOL!
