Donna Savattere, Dan Marino’s former mistress, hides in upscale London neighborhood with her family
Donna Savattere, Dan Marino’s former mistress, has been hiding out in an upscale London neighborhood with the NFL legend’s love child and her new husband, Nahill Younis.
Donna Savattere, 42, was pictured outside a $3.5 million house she and Nahill Younis own in the Wandsworth area of southwest London.
Neighbors say the couple planted bushes in the front of their house as a privacy screen after the story about Donna Savettere’s affair with Dan Marino broke two weeks ago.
The New York Post spotted Donna Savattere, a former CBS TV producer, outside the home with Chloe, the 7-year-old daughter she secretly had with Dan Marino.
Former Miami Dolphins quarterback Dan Marino reportedly paid Donna Savattere millions to keep quiet about the baby.
The couple hid the affair from Dan Marino’s bosses and CBS and even his agent for seven years, according to the Post.
Dan Marino came clean about his affair with CBS production assistant Donna Savattere to the one person to whom it mattered the most – his wife of 28 years, Claire.
“Danny did, as difficult as it was, tell his wife in 2005, when this occurred,” a source told the New York Post.
On Thursday it emerged that Dan Marino, who is worth an estimated $35 million, paid Donna Savattere millions of dollars to keep quiet about their daughter, Chloe.
Sources told the New York Post that Dan Marino, who has worked as a pre-game analyst for CBS since 2003, even kept the child hidden from his bosses and his long-time agent-lawyer, Marvin Demoff.
While Dan Marino had used Marvin Demoff to negotiate his contracts with the Dolphins and CBS for 30 years, he turned to a different lawyer when he paid money to Donna Savattere because he was “embarrassed”.
He only told the network about the scandal on Wednesday after The Post told Dan Marino it would be publishing the story about his affair, a source told the paper. He then told Marvin Demoff.
The source also said Dan Marino’s job is not in danger, while another source said there had not yet been any discussion about what action CBS will take, if any.
Dan Marino, 51, admitted to the affair, saying in a statement: “This is a personal and private matter. I take full responsibility both personally and financially for my actions now as I did then.
“We mutually agreed to keep our arrangement private to protect all parties involved.”
He insisted that he and his wife of 28 years are still together and “continue to be a strong and loving family”.
Dan Marino met his mistress while carrying out his role as a pregame analyst for CBS, where he has worked since 2003. Donna Savattere was 35 at the time of their relationship.
