Last July Francesco Totti, former soccer player, living legend of Roma, was in the news again, but of course, not because of what was done inside the gramado. On that occasion, it was learned of the breakup of his relationship with the model Ilary Blasi, mother of his three children, with whom he had been married for more than 20 years.
And the press pointed to the eternal “10” of La Loba as the culprit of the disagreement. Strictly speaking, they said that he had been unfaithful. However, after being silent for a while, Totti decided to speak up and defend himself against those versions:
“It is not true that I was the first to betray her,” he said loud and clear in conversation with the media. Corriere della Sera.
Then he explained why he preferred to speak out: “I said I was going to shut up and I did, but I have read too many hoaxes in recent weeks that have made my children suffer.”
“I have lived through a complicated stage, first because I stopped playing and then because of the death of my father due to Covid-19. I also had a very strong virus for 15 days. However, my wife, when I needed her the most, she was not there, ”she began, now yes, her story.
Then, he told the crudest part: “I had never done it in 20 years nor had she done it with me. But when I received notices from different people whom I trust, I became suspicious and looked at her mobile. I saw that there was a third person who acted as an intermediary between Ilary and another… Something like: see you at the hotel”.
For Totti, finding out in this way caused a strong depression. “I could not sleep. I pretended nothing was wrong, but it wasn’t me anymore, it was someone else.”
He finally explained that he was able to escape only thanks to his relationship with Noemi Bocchi, who was there, at the most difficult time of his life.
