Jack Watts text scandal: AFL star has 'messages from his phone leaked'

AFL star Jack Watts is at the centre of a text message scandal, after a series of conversations with women from his phone were leaked online.

Watts' club Port Adelaide has confirmed to Daily Mail Australia they are aware of the messages and are investigating them.

Screenshots of 20 texts which appear to have been sent from the mobile phone of the 27-year-old utility player and former number one draft pick have been widely circulated on social media.

However, it is not known if the text messages - which include references to drug use, the hiring of exotic dancers and also sexual relations - were sent by Watts himself.

The text messages were allegedly sent between late-2017 and early-2018, at which time Watts is understood to have been in a relationship with Sophie Hunt.

That romance is believed to have ended in recent weeks and Watts is understood to currently be on leave following the end of the footy season.

The recipients of the messages included mates, women and an adult entertainment agency.

An Adelaide woman, whose phone number is listed on the messages, confirmed she had been romantically involved with Watts earlier this year.

But she said she knew nothing about the texts being shared online until contacted by Daily Mail Australia.

'What? No, I had no idea about any of this,' the woman said.

'I haven't spoken to him for months. We met when I was living in Melbourne.'

In a one of the messages sent from Watts' phone the sender appears to make a reference to taking illicit substances, writing: 'I just want to do lines off t**s'.

Daily Mail Australia is not suggesting Watts has used illicit substances. 

In one text message sent from Watts' phone, the sender wrotes: 'I just want to do lines off t*** and then I'll be happy xoxox'
