These photos aren’t helping quiet the chatter, that’s for sure!
Cristiano Ronaldo has reportedly been making frequent trips to Morocco to visit kick boxer “friend” Badr Hari, so a French sports journalist jumped to the conclusion that the two men were in a secret relationship and let his opinion be heard during a broadcast.
“What I’m interested in is what players do on the pitch, and whether their side activities might have an impact on that. Take the example of Cristiano Ronaldo – I’m sure flying off to Morocco three to four times a week to see a friend and cuddle with him might have an impact on his performances eventually,” Daniel Riolo blurted out while discussing what sports players do in their spare time.
Apparently, the athlete has been using a private jet to fly in and out of Hari’s country – sometimes even on the same day! – which has raised suspicions that the two are having a gay romance. A month and a half ago, Hari shared some photos of the pair looking extremely close while lounging poolside, and even made jokes about them “getting married” because of the way he was cradling the soccer stud.
Ronaldo previously dated Russian model Irina Shayk for five years before she moved on with Bradley Cooper.
Guess we’ll have to wait and see!
