Cristiano Ronaldo's girlfriend Gemma Atkinson has been accused of lying about having a relationship with the Manchester United midfielder by his own mother.
The former Hollyoaks actress had been rumored to be dating Cristiano Ronaldo for the past few months, although the couple have never actually been spotted together.
Ronaldo's girlfriend Gemma has been very open about her relationship with Cristiano, stating to the British media that they were a couple on several occasions. Ronaldo's girlfriend has also reportedly said that the couple are enjoying some great, hot sex together. Cristiano Ronaldo has been far less open about their relationship, and now his mother has stepped in to the argument by accusing Gemma Atkinson of lying.
Ronaldo's mother lives in her son's homeland, Portugal, and she hasn't heard anything about her son dating Gemma Atkinson. This has led her to believe that Gemma has fabricated the whole story, and that she has never had any kind of relationship with the young, sexy actress.
Speaking exclusively to The Sun newspaper, Dolores Aveiro, Cristiano Ronaldo's mum, was quoted as saying "Cristiano doesn't have a girlfriend. I put my hands in the fire as he did not go with the girl people say is his girlfriend. 't know her and don't care if she's beautiful. " Ronaldo's mum firmly believes that Gemma Atkinson is simply jealous that she can't be with Cristiano, and is trying to raise her own profile and make a name for herself by pretending to be dating the Manchester united star midfielder.
It remains to be seen whether Cristiano is simply keeping their relationship a secret from his mother and from the worldwide media, and that his mum is simply being over-protective on behalf of her son by denying the claims that he is Gemma Atkinson. However according to Gemma's closest friends Cristiano and Gemma are a couple, and that judging by the texts they send each other they are very much happy together.
