Split: Jose and Matilde Mourinho to Divorce – UPDATED
Although reports in numerous media outlets in Portugal and Spain ran stories last wee about The Special One and his “special” friendships with other women, Jose Mourinho and his wife have gone public denying they are separating.
The family have done a group shot whilst on holiday with the magazine Lux, and insist all is well on the home front. Interestingly enough, the magazine states that Mourinho isn’t going to sue anyone who printed the story about the divorce.
Curious, no? If the stories were way off base, wouldn’t you be calling in the solicitors? We sense all is not what it seems on this one, Kickettes.
Original story continues below.
To all those with a penchant for the silver foxes amongst us, here’s a heads up.
Jose Mourinho, Inter Milan’s head coach and key cashmere-wearer is getting a divorce from his wife, Matilde.
Apparently, the straw that broke wifey’s tolerance levels were the rumours of Jose hooking up with an Italian woman.
Matilde (also known as ‘Tami’) is allegedly the one who contacted the lawyers first to initiate divorce proceedings. It’s not the first time she’s had to deal with stories about Jose’s women wrangling, either.
Looks like there may be a court battle for possession of moola and other such items – wonder what’s really gone down for Matilde to want to take her childhood sweetheart to the cleaners? Maybe she discovered he used her good moisturizer and forgot to put the cap back on. That’s grounds for divorce.
Jose has three children, Matilde, Jose Jr. (Zuca). He and Matilda senior met when they were teenagers in Portugal and got married in 1989. Reports say the family is on vacation in the far east but don’t confirm whether it’s Matilda on her own with the kids or if Jose is there too.
