As mentioned yesterday, our personal theory for why Mark Sanchez got involved with a 17 year-old high school girl from Greenwich named Eliza Kruger was that he was looking for a one stop shop when it came to banging a chick who just got her license and unparalleled advice on where to invest his money. Sanchez was able to find the whole package in Kruger, whose father is Greenwich Capital founder and Five Mile Capital partner Konrad "Chip" Kruger. Today brings news that this love story was even more of a family affair than we'd previously thought.
The rich, preppy Connecticut mom of 17-year-old Eliza Kruger -- who said she "hooked up" with star Jets quarterback Mark Sanchez after meeting him at a Manhattan nightclub -- "likes to party" on occasion with her sexy daughter, sources said yesterday.
"Eliza has been going to clubs since she was 15, sometimes with her mom," blond Greenwich divorcée Marie McCormick Kruger, a night life source told The Post. "A lot of the club guys in the city know her mom well," the source said.
It is also noted in Konrad and Marie's divorce papers that MK "slept with her rowing coach," which possibly means she has a thing for anyone involved in sports organizations and encouraged her daughter to go for the Jets QB to get an in with Rex Ryan.
