IRIEFM – West Indies batting star Chris Gayle could be travelling down the road of controversy and is facing fresh allegations of sexism after making a series of controversial remarks to a female journalist.

The hard hitting opener, who was criticised for asking female Australian reporter Mel McLaughlin out on a date during a live television interview earlier this year, was speaking to Charlotte Edwardes for an article published in the Times Magazine on Saturday.

According to the article, Gayle made suggestive remarks and asked the journalist about personal matters.

At one point in the interview Gayle – who recently celebrated the arrival of a baby girl called Blush with his partner Tash – tells Edwardes that he has ‘a very, very big bat, the biggest in the wooooorld’.

He then added, “You think you could lift it? You’d need two hand,” reports The Daily Mail.

According to the article, Gayle asks Edwardes how many black men she has ‘had’ and wants to know if she has ever had a threesome. ‘I bet you have. Tell me,’ he is reported to have said. – West Indies batting star Chris Gayle could be travelling down the road of controversy and is facing fresh allegations of sexism after making a series of controversial remarks to a female journalist.

  1. Her name is not "tash" to you. She isn't a friend of yours. Her name is Natasha Berridge. Disrespectful. Good bye.

  2. This guy keeps making an a$$ of himself every chance he gets.
    He comes across as desperate, c*cky and arrogant. He won't stop until he's slapped with a fat harassment lawsuit. Isn't he in a relationship with this woman who recently birthed his child?

  3. This is some bull shit . you said you were interviewing Gayle right? Then am sure as a reporter you would have a taped recording of all what he said ,if not then where is the evidence if you have any I don't want to take ur article for it I want to see the evidence cause as a reporter you can put what ever you feel like in an article. As far as I am concerned it maybe was you that was hitting on Gayle and since he didn't give you the response you wanted you now resorted to spoil his image and reputation just to bring him down like all other successful black men.

    To Chris Gayle if you are in the wrong I dont think you would be so stupid to do such a thing after almost being in deep water just a few months ago, think with your head on ur shoulders not d other way round

  4. He jump that he's reached stardom.

    Such are some black-men.

    Chris Gayle has expertly epitomized the adage: "you can take the pig out of the pen; but you can't take the pen out of the pig"

  5. Again? Really Chris Gayle, what is it with you? The the first instance with Mel was not that bad and I thought it was blown out of proportion, but this is despicable. Gross disrespect, utterly disgusting.
