The brother of former Manchester United soccer legend Ryan Giggs said the two haven’t talked in eight years since it was revealed the star athlete had engaged in a years-long affair with his wife, a report said.
Rhodri Giggs, 42, also told the Almost Famous podcast that he’s had no communication with his mom, Lynne, since his now ex-wife Natasha admitted in 2011 that she’d been secretly sleeping with her husband’s brother since 2003, The Sun reported Monday.
“I don’t speak to any of my family, none of them speak to me, they all speak to Ryan and they all live in Wales and go to Wales games and have nice food and nice hospitality,” Rhodri said.
His 46-year-old brother is now a manager of the Wales national team.
Rhodri said in the interview that his mother has sided with Ryan since the bombshell revelation, leaving him heartbroken.
“It’s like I’ve done the affair,” he said, according to the report.
“I’ve got three children, one who’s five who she’s never met and one who’s 13 who she hasn’t seen for seven or eight years, what have they done? They live a mile away.”
Since the 2011 announcement, Rhodri said his brother had tried to reconcile, but he felt it wasn’t genuine.
Ryan told him the affair was “‘just sex,’” Rhodri recalled. But Ryan’s words were “not real, it was all fake,” according to Rhodri.
“Six months down the line he said he’s going to do this, do that and then nothing has happened… He expects me to just forget it and act like things are normal but no, I went to the papers and from that day they never spoke to me.”
In the 2011 interview with The Sun, Natasha claimed she and Ryan even had a child together, which she aborted weeks before marrying Rhodri.
“At the beginning it was thrilling to know that someone as famous and as admired as Ryan wanted to be in bed with me, but by the end, it became so seedy,” she told the paper at the time.
Rhodri and Natasha divorced in 2013 after three years of marriage.
Ryan divorced his wife of 10 years, Stacey, in 2017.
