He had the money, the fame and the fast cars, but his brother believes that even with all that, Ryan Giggs was still a jealous man and that’s why he stole his wife.
Rhodri Giggs has spoken out about how the one thing he had in his life that Ryan didn’t, was what ultimately drove the Manchester United ace to have an eight-year affair with his now estranged wife Natasha Giggs.
Rhodri, 34, was devastated after hearing of the betrayal his older brother committed, taking sibling rivalry to a whole other level. He described how the veteran winger had all the things he could only dream of and Natasha, 29, was just another trophy for his shelf.
He told the Sun newspaper: “He took Natasha despite him having everything and me nothing. She was the only thing I had and he did not – so he took it.”
Ryan, 38, has not only ruined his brother’s marriage he has also ended his love affair with Manchester United because Rhodri can’t stand to watch the team.
Rhodri is a player-manager at Salford City and earns just £400 (R4 900) a week which nothing compare to Ryan who is on £75 000 a week, a fact which he thinks has made Ryan feel invincible.
The downtrodden father-of-two looked up to Ryan when they were younger and they were close, but when Rhodri was imprisoned for four-and-a-half-months for assaulting a Manchester City fan who abused him, he was never visited by his brother.
He also recalled how Ryan tried to heal an earlier rift last year when he denied cheating with Natasha.
Rhodri said: “He said to me, ‘We need to be brothers again, we have never been the same since we became so competitive against each other’.
“That made me think, ‘Are you jealous of me? I don’t understand. Look at me compared to you. I think you won’. “
While Rhodri and Natasha are trying to patch things up for the sake of their children, Ryan is yet to apologise for his behaviour but reportedly wants to speak to his brother.
Rhodri said: “He wants to be brothers again but wants me to do the sucking up – like everyone around him. He’s selfish. Whatever suits him, he’ll do.”
While her husband has been trying to get over her actions, Natasha Giggs has been trying to milk her time in the limelight after appearing in this year’s Celebrity Big Brother.
The 29-year-old, who was evicted last weekend from the plush Elstree pad, also stripped off in a recent photoshoot.
Standing in the doorway of a bathroom, she showed off her many back tattoos of stars as she posed with just a white towel to cover her modesty.
Speaking to the Daily Star on Sunday, she said she hoped to rebuild her relationship with Rhodri which meant cutting Ryan out of her life completely.
“I won’t speak to him ever again and we’ll never be friends after what’s happened,” she said.
Speaking to The Sun, Rhodri said: “Ryan’s a great footballer, but he is nothing as a man. Natasha was my whole life and he was supposed to be the closest person to me.
“(Ryan) wasn’t sorry. He said it was about the sex, nothing more than that, which was nice of him.”
Natasha, meanwhile, has hit out at claims she slept with a barber on holiday last summer.
Although single at the time following her split from Rhodri, she has denied having sex with Graham Griffiths.
The 23-year-old barber, from Somerset, said he had slept with her during a holiday in Cyprus last August.
Griffiths told The Sun: “I only knew her for three nights and I slept with her every one. She wore me out – she let me do everything with her and I couldn’t help myself.
“Natasha’s a man-eater and I think the only chance of their marriage working is if Rhodri keeps her locked up.” – Daily Mail
