Split: Jose and Matilde Mourinho to Divorce – UPDATED

image

imageUPDATE:

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.

thanks TB and Carly!

    no no,leave the special one alone.

  2. TammyV says:

    He doesn't call himself The Special One for nothing

  3. Tres Bien says:

    You heard it here first.

  4. goalkeeperette says:

    You lost me as soon as I saw her nose. LOL what a hooter!

  5. carly says:

    Kat – the stripper was only a variety show. Every guest had a stripper and it's not like he asked for it. He was clearly embarrassed.

  6. carly says:

    This has been a rumour over here for a while but I’ll believe it only when it’s done.
    Are you absolutely sure they have 3 children? I was convinced there were only 2. Anyway, Zuca is a weird name.

  7. aristeia says:

    DSO & drama? Nooooo.

  8. Kat says:

    That sounds terrible.

    I hate to say this, but the writing was pretty much on the wall after the whole incident with him and the stripper on television.

    I hope she gets custody of the kids and I hope she keeps them far away from him now.

  12. Elise says:

    Damn. Jose is single. I’m kind of speechless. And slightly dizzy.

  13. Junebug says:

    If that cover photo is any indication, they are one unhappy family.

  14. tracey says:

    They’ve denied it, will you publish that?

    “Jose has been always describing his family as the centre of his life

  15. Susie says:

    This is not surprise. There have been stories about this since he was at Porto.

    My sympathies to his family, I hope she takes him to the cleaners.

  16. Slyboots says:

    Jose has been always describing his family as the centre of his life….
    That’s why it’s unbelievable for me.. This totally ruins his image.
    Let’s wait for some official pieces of information. Maybe these are only rumours.

  17. xesca says:

    They only have two children, Zuca is Jose jr's nickname. This is really sad for the family.

  18. Lolinha says:

    LoveLamps LOL Her bag is bigger than her torso… The Single One is looking yummy in this picture. I don't really have a thing for silver foxes, not counting Pep & Keane & Clooney. Divorce sucks, but it's better than staying together just for the kids. They sense the tension and nobody is happy in a situation like that.

  19. Mrs.De Rossi says:

    Is it weird that I find him attractive even though the year he got I married I was just born??????? I don't know if this is appropriate or not?

    • Merry says:

      it`s not.. i feel the same and i`m 20… he s cute and has karisma :P .. but i doubt this divorce rumour

  20. Nandia Mrs.The Ramos says:

    LOL TB!Now I get it…OMG they where married in 89,when I was just about 1!!Does that mean he's old enough to be my daddy?Ok that didnt sound right,or did it?LOL

  21. chelseagal_joeycoles says:

    i begin dancing to celebrate.. then remember he's slightly more…um… mature? than me. ahh well unlucky jose im sure you can easily get another blonde to give you a lapdance on television!

  22. carly says:

    Ah, I don't know. It is a lot of work (and money spending) to sue the press. On the other hand, as it is known, there's not smoke without fire. However DSO is just not the kind of man that would get divorced. I don't get that vibe from him.

  23. TammyV says:

    So he will be available while playing in LA this summer… Good, this works well for me

  24. Avenath says:

    Even though it's not right for me to be all happy inside when a relationship ends, i seriously can't help it….Milan, here i come!!!!

  25. LoveLamps says:

    Ok Frank and Elen and now Jose and Matilde. Stop pointing your skinny, well-manicured fingers at me. Ok. I confess. Claudine Keane, are you reading this?

  26. FootballerChick43 - says:

    Wow… just… wow. I feel absolutely terrible for their kids, but this does mean Jose is available!

  27. Nata_red says:

    it can sound arrogant, sorry, but this is great news! My Special One will be free and available!

  28. aristeia says:

    I’m very sorry for his children. This must be very difficult for them.

  29. boo says:

    quite lame

  30. Tres Bien says:

    Thanks to Carly for sending me the Lux cover!
