Inside snooker star Judd Trump's extravagant lifestyle

April 26, 2022

Judd Trump once insisted that he wasn't a playboy after being warned by Barry Hearn that he needed to focus on being a professional sportsman - but that hasn't stopped him living an extravagant lifestyle.

The professional snooker star from Bristol, who won the 2019 World Snooker Championship, is back in action at the Crucible this month as he looks to claim another major victory.

Away from the table, Trump has shown that he knows how to enjoy himself with a series of holiday and festival snaps on Instagram, as well as wearing £845 shoes and posing with his Lamborghini.

Trump joined the professional tour back in 2005, having become the youngest ever person to hit a 147 break at the age of just 14 two years earlier.

He has gone on to win 23 ranking tournaments and earn just short of £6million in prize-money, becoming only the second player ever to hit 100 century breaks in a single season (2019/10).

The Ace in the Pack has come a long way since his 2012 war of words with former Matchroom Sport president Hearn, with each of his last 16 Instagram posts all related to his day job.

The 32-year-old has been pictured over the years in Dubai, New York, Los Angeles and other plush venues, also posing in a BMW and Rolls Royce.

Gucci and Balenciaga T-shirts have been paired with a Rolex watch on occasion - but that doesn't mean he has been behaving irresponsibly as the playboy tag suggests.

In 2012, Hearn said of Trump: He said: "Next year we'll announce more events, so you've got to decide whether you're part-time sportsman or part-time playboy.

"Part-time playboys lay in bed and go skiing. Professional sportsman make money for their families and their future."

To which Trump told the Independent in response: "Barry Hearn has said there's no time for playboys, but I'm not a playboy.

"My Twitter account status used to say 'part-time playboy' on it, but I've taken that down now."

He said after his last 16 victory over Anthony McGill: "I played pretty decent but I have not played my best all the time this season when I have won events. I am not playing anywhere near my best but just battling through.

"If I can get through the first few rounds, let everyone else play their absolute best, then I can swoop it all up. I'm hoping to save my best for the next game onwards."
