Reports of affair with Blatter ‘pathetic’: Model Shayk

London, June 6 (IANS) Russian supermodel Irina Shayk has dismissed claims that she had an affair with outgoing FIFA president Sepp Blatter, terming the rumours as “pathetic” and “wholly unfounded”.

Shayk is the former girlfriend of Portuguese footballer Cristiano Ronaldo having been in a relationship with him from 2010 before breaking up earlier this year. Spanish daily newspaper El Mundo reported on Thursday that Shayk had an affair with Blatter.

The report suggested that the 79-year-old “had a relationship” with the Russian model after dating tennis player Ilona Boguska but before meeting glamorous Linda Barras, 50.

“The rumours regarding an alleged romantic and/or personal affair with Sepp Blatter by El Mundo newspaper in Spain is a pathetic attempt at defaming Ms Shayk and are absolutely not true,” a New York-based spokesman for Irina Shayk said on Friday.

“We have no intentions of further acknowledging these allegations as they are wholly unfounded.”

Blatter is in the midst of an expanding FIFA corruption scandal and was forced to resign from his post days after getting re-elected for a fifth term.

Shayk is currently in a relationship with Hollywood movie star Bradley Cooper.
