Another day, another footballer’s fidelity is called into question by a Sun on Sunday kiss and tell story.
A reality TV personality and aspiring model, Natacha Rodrigues, has claimed Cristiano Ronaldo cheated on his girlfriend, Georgina Rodríguez, while she was pregnant.
The 21-year-old spoke about the alleged infidelity, claiming it started with a few messages on her Instagram, which has been made private since her story broke.
Natacha reportedly sent the former Manchester United athlete a provocative private message on the social media picture messaging app, showing the 21-year-old in her underwear.
According to her account, Ronaldo replied:
I love your bum.
I want to see it in the flesh.
She recalled how the conversation started in September 2015:
It was 1am and I did it as a joke! I never thought he’d reply, but at 6am he messaged me and things went from there.
It was when I sent him a video of me twerking in my underwear that he said he wanted to see me in person.
Cristiano always made it clear he liked my body. He told me he loved my bum and wanted to see it personally.
Natacha recalled the months of messaging, adding:
I knew he had a girlfriend but we became friends, there was trust between us, a bond.
He was a lovely person and after messaging for so long it was amazing to be with him. Our night together was special.
The pair finally met in person in his hometown apartment in March this year. At the time, Ronaldo’s long-term girlfriend, Georgina Rodríguez, was pregnant with a child, due one month from now.
Natacha documented how her relationship with Ronaldo turned frosty:
The next day I messaged him saying I’d enjoyed being with him and promising to stay in touch. Two months later I sent him a WhatsApp saying I needed to talk but he’d blocked me.
I’d gone from feeling really special to just another girl.
But afterwards I told him I was going on a Portuguese reality show and he told me not to do it. By the time I came out he’d blocked me.
Now I think he just used me for sex. I don’t have regrets because being with him was like a dream come true but I feel betrayed.
I hope he is being faithful to Georgina now. He told me the night we made love that I was the only one and he’d never done this to her before.
At the time I believed him.
She also claims after they slept together – an experience she claims ‘didn’t disappoint’ – Ronaldo gave her a hat, a tour of his apartment and €300 for taxis home.
Last month, the star was named FIFA’s player of the year for the second time, at a stylish London awards ceremony.
22-year-old Georgina – who he’s dated for 16 months and is now eight months pregnant – was by his side with his son.
Ronaldo is yet to respond to the sordid and upsetting allegations.
