With Sepp Blatter having voluntarily stood down as FIFA President, the hitherto secret stories are beginning to trickle out about his private life.
The Swiss despot has long been known to be a womanizer of epic proportions, but this piece from Spanish paper El Mundo yesterday really makes an astonishing claim about his prowess with the fairer sex.
The paper names stunning glamour model Irina Shayk as one of his former lovers – the Russian model who had a 5-year relationship with Cristiano Ronaldo.
El Mundo claim that Blatter had a short-lived affair with Shayk before meeting his current partner Linda Barras.
There is no suggestion that Blatter eloped with Shayk while Ronaldo was still in a relationship with her, and the suggestion is that Blatter and Shayk were together before Ronaldo met her; at any rate, it’s quite a sensational and hard-t0-believe claim.
If true, why is this only coming out now, and how could it have possibly been kept secret all this time?
Ronaldo and Shayk broke up in early 2015, and it’s since emerged that Shayk possibly ended the relationship due to Ronaldo’s infidelity.
