Ryan Giggs had eight-year affair with sister-in-law alleges newspaper

Manchester United winger Ryan Giggs allegedly had an eight-year relationship with his sister-in-law

According to the News of the World, Giggs had an on-off relationship with his brother Rhodri’s wife, Natasha.

The former Wales international is alleged to have first met Natasha at a nightclub in 2003, while his wife was pregnant with their first child.

According to Sunday’s report, the two ended their relationship four months later when Natasha started dating Giggs’ brother, but then in Autumn 2004 had a seven-month fling.

The pair are alleged to have met on various occasions over the years, including the day after his second child was born in October 2006 and shortly before Natasha’s Las Vegas wedding to Rhodri in April 2010.

A friend told the newspaper that Natasha had said: “I knew it was wrong. It’s the worst possible betrayal. I tried to end it but my relationship with Ryan was like an addiction. Anything he said, I did. If he wanted me to drop everything to meet him, I would. I just couldn’t say no.

“He instigated it all. It was all on his terms. There were constant calls, constant texts, constant meetings. But Ryan was never romantic with me. He never told me he loved me. It was all about sex.”

The 37-year-old was alleged to have last met Natasha on April 9th.

Giggs was named in Parliament last month by Lib Dem MP John Hemmings as having an alleged affair with reality TV star Imogen Thomas.
