Ex FIFA President Sepp Blatter, 79 has been named as a former lover of model Irina Shayk, 29 in a bombshell story which is making headlines across the world.
Spanish daily El Mundo made the sensational claim about the roving-eyed football chief and Cristiano Ronaldo’s ex girlfriend in a piece published yesterday titled ‘All the women in Blatter’s life.’
It declared the 79-year-old ‘had a relationship’ with the Russian beauty after dating tennis player Ilona Boguska but before meeting glamourous Linda Barras, 50.
Blatter began seeing Polish-born Ilona, a friend of his daughter Corinne, in 1995 and they separated in 2002, it is claimed.
They dated again after Blatter’s short 2002 marriage to Graziella Bianca – a dolphin trainer who was also a friend of his daughter.
Blatter is understood to have become close to Swiss socialite Barras at the beginning of 2014 and has been described as her boyfriend by Swiss and other international press even though her husband Christian insists they are just ‘close friends.’
