Rumoured Relations: Aida Yespica & Mesut Özil

Real talk, Kickettes. In this day and age of tabloid speculation, ‘baller bed hopping and random WAGabee infiltration of the clique, one constant has withstood the test of time: when one footballer’s king-size mattress share spot is suddenly taken, another is moments away from being magically vacant.
The latest news coming out of Milan – which seems to be extending these valuable words to live by’s longevity – is about Mesut Özil and Aida Yespica having a mid-February dinner date together. Gossip tells us that the two did their best to avoid the paparazzi lenses before and after mealtime, as well as while entering a club in the city’s centre through the back door. Afterwards, as we’ve heard, both parties mutually retreated to the same hotel for an intellectually challenging game of Words With Friends.
It’s hard to tell who won.
We admit, the sluggish nature to which we’ve approached this potential hook up leaves us with nothing of new substance to offer Özil’s faithful fans or the Google-happy elite among us. But to avoid jumping to conclusions, the story we keep telling ourselves is that O wanted to show her his collection of scarves. Our minds are as tightly twisted as Ms. Yespica’s makeshit crop top coverage, you see.
Undeterred by the Venezuelan showgirl’s resolve to call off her desperately public pursuit of her ex, Matteo Ferrari, we expect to be exempt from your opinionated fury, Kickettes. It’s just that this woman’s ‘baller snatching style brings out the worst in us; it’s like she’s Gemma Atkinson of the highest order.
And with that, we’ll leave you with our trademark Q&A post close: following Özil’s break up from Anna Maria Lagerblom, did many of you believe the Real Madrid star was capable of working his wild oats this far and wide? Or, were you crossing your fingers that he’d settle down sans plastic female parts right away?
