Diego Forlan: Single & Ready To Mingle?
Image Source: One of the best Tumblr pages we’ve seen in awhile. Check out the shot they got on Figo. Ahem.
Could it be the quickest post-break-up bounceback ever recorded in football dating history, Kickettes? Diego Forlan’s abs have barely been free for more than 10 minutes and they’re already back on the prowl (or so reports would like us to believe)?
Days before the Copa American tournament kick-off, the newly single-fied Uruguay NT player was seen out and about at Lotus in Montevideo. His partner in question was Stephany Ortega, also known as Miss Uruguay 2010. Even though they maintain neighboring homes in Carrasco, Uruguay, the 21-year-old model claimed that the two only met that fateful Saturday evening (25th June), and are ‘just friends’.
Around the same time, a Forlan post-split pretty numero dos stepped forward: Maria Raquel Denis. An apparent friend to Diego’s family and former beauty queen herself (we sense a pattern here…just sayin’…), Miss Denis was rumoured to be the third wheel at the centre of the Forlan/Nara split. In order to quell those allegations, she released an official statement offering full support to Diego and his family. Like they really need it, pffft.
M.R.D. continued her random rant by placing all break-up blame on Zaira and her media-courting tweets, which gave way to never-ending speculative stories.
And while we’re on the subject, Miss Nara went back to work last week on her former show “La Cocina Del Show”. She appeared to be in good spirits but ixnay-ed all relationship rupture talk because of a legal action from the Forlan camp (read: a gag order). She also managed a phone interview with “Intrusos” (a popular gossip show in Argentina), where she stated that the total truth about her and Diego’s relationship will forever remain between the two of them, and the two of them only.
Or, Kickettes, do you believe the relationship dramaz will be kept between the two of them AND the magazine who cuts Zara the fattest cheque for her side of the story?
