Yvain “Swiss” Badan & Erika Nardini
Barstool Sports is a lightning rod for both positive and negative attention on the internet. As a result, the leaders of the company often find themselves under the microscope.
It happened with Barstool founder and content boss Dave Portnoy when his latest violent sex tape came out, and it’s happening again this week with CEO Erika Nardini. In a somewhat salacious and provocative turn of events, she stands accused of having an affair.
“Erika Nardini appears to have had an explosive affair with her married squash coach,” reports Oli Coleman of the New York Post.
“Back in early April, a Page Six spy told us that they’d been at the digital giant’s New York headquarters and had seen Nardini ‘run out and kiss another man [who wasn’t her husband]. She seemed real excited to see the guy,’” the article says.
“Now Page Six has exclusively learned that the hotshot exec may have left her banker husband for her squash instructor, breaking up the racket man’s marriage in the process.”
Apparently, “Erika and Brett Nardini became members of the New Canaan Country Club in Connecticut last summer, and that Brett signed up Erika for squash lessons with the club pro Yvain ‘Swiss’ Badan in December.
It’s not the first se**x scandal to hit Barstool Sports in recent weeks.
Page Six reported that — after a striking se**x tape featuring its founder Dave Portnoy made the rounds online — his co-star in the clip, Sydney Raines, came forward to discuss it, saying it was consensual and “we are still friends with no animosity between us.”
Shares in the company that owns Barstool dipped after the tape leaked, but Portnoy brushed it off as “consensual se**x.”
Yvain “Swiss” Badan Wife
But Badan’s wife, middle school teacher Cynthia, became curious when she noticed that over a three-week period, Swiss started coming home from the lessons — which started around 8 p.m. — at 2 a.m. or 3 a.m. It seems the coach and student had gotten into a habit of hanging out with two other pals at the club bar until the early hours.
“Cynthia and Swiss were like the local golden couple,” said an insider of the pair, who wed in 2012. “Every waiter and bartender in town knew them and everyone thought, ‘Cynthia and Swiss are always so happy.’” They added, “They were madly in love.”
Page Six is told that the pair had been planning for their retirement and had recently bought a vacation home together, and Swiss had just flown to Michigan — where Cynthia had taken a short break with her four sons, between ages 17 and 26 — to surprise her on her birthday.
But Cynthia was devastated on Jan. 8, 2021, to discover text messages that indicated Swiss had left their home to travel to New York to spend the day in bed with Erika. She also discovered from the messages that they were planning a future together.
“They were talking about how they were going to have babies and dogs,” said a source. In March, heartbroken Cynthia filed for divorce. Meanwhile, we’re told Swiss was fired from his job a few days after the affair was discovered.
We’re told the Nardinis — who have two sons, 8 and 10 — have split, but have yet to divorce, and Erika is looking for her own apartment where she and her coach can work on her forehand stroke into the wee hours whenever they want.
