Italian football legend, Francesco Totti, has opened up on how his ex-wife, Ilary Blasi, cheated on him and how it affected him and his football career.
The 45-year-old former Roma captain claimed that his 17 years marriage to Ilary Blasi broke down because she failed to support and show up for him following his retirement from football and when his father passed away due to Covid-19.
Speaking with Corriere della Sera, he said: “I have lived through a difficult period, first because I stopped playing and then my father died due to Covid. I also had a strong Covid for 15 days. However, my wife, when I needed her most, was not there. It is not true that was the first to betray. I said was not going to speak and I did not, but I have read too many hoaxes in recent weeks. Some have even made my children suffer.
In September of last year the rumors began to reach me: ‘look, llary has another one. Indeed, more than one.’ I had never done it in twenty years, nor had she ever done it with me. But when I received warnings from different people, whom trust, began to suspect.
I looked at her cell phone and I saw that there was a third person, who acted as an intermediary between llary and another. Something like: see you at the hotel.
There have been rumours in the past, regarding both her and me. But they were really rumours. Here was the evidence. The facts. And that led to depression. I couldn’t sleep anymore. I pretended nothing was wrong, but I was no longer me, I was someone else. I got out of it thanks to Naomi. We used to hang out as friends. Then, after the New Year, it became a story. llary dated other men before my story with Naomi was born.”
