A Nigerian wife of a disgraced doctor who had s.ex with an escort in hospital is standing by him.
Sheyi Pemsel is still with husband Dr Rupert Pemsel despite him cheating on her while she was pregnant with their second child.
At a medical tribunal, trainee anaesthetist Dr Pemsel blamed his s.ex shame on anaddiction to porn.
His encounter with escort Leanne Kennedy, 29, resulted in him facing misconduct charges.
It also led to cops finding a picture on his iPhone of an X-ray of a patient in a very intimate and unusual act.
Nigeria-born Sheyi, 40, calls Dr Pemsel, 32, her “baby” and is understood to have accepted her husband’s explanations.
Hmm,i wonder what those explanation are.Seems some wives will accept anything from their husbands.
Dr Pemsel told the disciplinary hearing that his GP wife had been “extremely supportive” during his suspension for bedding Leanne.
Wearing his wedding ring as he gave evidence, the married dad of two said he regretted his actions.
Dr Pemsel summoned the call girl to a side room at the Princess Anne Hospital, Southampton, in December 2013, the tribunal heard.
Sheyi was at home at the time, carrying their second child.
Dr Pemsel was still in his medical scrubs having spent the evening helping with caesarean deliveries.
He spent 40 minutes with escort Leanne during a night shift.
He got her into the maternity department after texting her: “This is naughty on my part so discretion would really be appreciated.”
Asked by his barrister Edward Pleeth why he booked the escort, Dr Pemsel told the Manchester hearing: “I did it because it seemed it was the natural progression from p.ornography to real life.
“It was something that I didn’t commit a lot of thought to.
“I woke up that evening to go to night shift and while looking at pornography I decided to do it then and it was in no way planned. It was merely that I was there and it was a place to meet. There is nothing more to it than that.”
Dr Pemsel was suspended by University Hospitals Southampton NHS Foundation Trust but later resigned.
He has since been working as a locum at different hospitals, most recently Queen Alexandra Hospital in Portsmouth, where he hopes to return.
Dr Pemsel admits misconduct, but denies his actions have made him unfit to practise.
Yesterday there was no sign of Sheyi at their Hampshire home.
Her public Twitter feed shows tender messages to her husband from 2012, with her joking: “Baby, how does this tweeting lark work?”
Pals said escort Leanne had gone to ground after details of the tryst came to light this week.
A ruling from the medical tribunal is expected today.
