FIFA president Sepp Blatter believed to be a former lover of Irina Shayk


As the fallout from the all-encompassing FIFA scandal continues to run roughshod over “The Beautiful Game,” a piece of gossip about resigning FIFA president Sepp Blatter’s supposed relationship with Russian supermodel Irina Shayk arguably is the best,  story to emerge out of the mess.

According to a piece entitled, “All the women in Blatter’s life” from “respected Spanish daily El Mundo” — as the paper is set forth in a story from The Mirrorthe 79-year-old “had a relationship” with the 29-year-old stunner.

Shayk of course was involved in a long-term relationship with soccer superstar Cristiano Ronaldo, one that just recently ended. She has since moved on and currently is believed to be dating actor Bradley Cooper.

Shayk’s New York-based spokesman declined to comment, but a subsequent report from The Mirror indicates that a source close to the model declared the rumors as “absolutely untrue.”

Whether the story of a Sepp, characterized as “short, bald despot with a leering eye for women half his age” by one paper recently, actually was involved in some kind of relationship with Shayk is true or not, it sure makes for one helluva story.
