While his Highlanders team-mates might flying high in the Super XV's final 'wild card' slot, it seems Aaron Smith's love life might be getting a little too wild for his own good.

The New Zealand Herald reports that Smith's girlfriend of two years, cheerleader Hannah Whitefield, dumped the All Blacks scrum-half after learning he had spent the night with Lisa Lewis, a notorious former stripper, escort, and topless TV presenter.

Smith began dating Whitefield after he spotted her cheerleading and the pair subsequently moved in together. However, earlier this month Whitefield was alerted to Smith's affair after Lewis contacted her to expose his infidelity.

Whitefield said: "Yes I dumped Aaron [on] Thursday [April 3] and it was because of his fling with Lisa Lewis. I am devastated, we were in a loving relationship."

Lewis, who is known as New Zealand's most famous sex worker, said: "[Aaron] direct-messaged me on Twitter and it all started from there. His messaging turned to facetime video interaction between us, which led me to think he was single as we were facetiming at night for a few hours.

Smith and Lewis eventually met on March 28, the night before the Highlanders played the Blues in Auckland.

"He was staying at the Crowne Plaza and I drove up on the Friday," Lewis said. "He asked me to pick him up a Cadbury Dream Bar as they give him good luck before a game - not a Milky Bar, a Dream Bar and it was quite hard to find."

Lewis once claimed she "trains harder than the All Blacks" and felt a "mutual admiration" brought her and Smith together.

A source close to Whitefield said: "Hannah had received support from Highlanders and All Blacks and their partners, and Smith's behaviour should not reflect on the culture of the game. It is Aaron's problem."
