Ryan Giggs was accused of having an affair with a cricketer's wife by his ex girlfriend Kate Greville in court today (August 19).
The 48-year-old former Manchester United player was accused of sleeping with eight different women during his relationship with Ms Greville, in a letter she wrote him just days before he allegedly assaulted her.
The letter said: "Oh, and I know about Steph – she's married to the cricketer now." Ms Greville accused them of having a "full blown affair in 2014" which "carried on the whole time you were seeing me".
She wrote in the letter: "I knew all about Steph, she's married to that cricketer but you knew that…You were having sex on tour with her in Washington."
Jurors did not hear details about who Steph is, or which cricketer she is married to.
Ex Wales manager Giggs is accused of coercive and controlling behaviour towards Ms Greville, 36, during their six-year relationship and headbutting her during a row at their home in Worsley, Greater Manchester.
Giggs is also accused of elbowing her younger sister Emma in the jaw during the row in November 2020.
Manchester Crown Court heard Ms Greville wrote Giggs a letter titled The Final Goodbye just three days before.
She said: "I now know you say the same things you say to me to multiple women.
"I'm nothing special, I was just the one you didn't let have a happy life without you."
Ms Greville claimed the "other women" have "husbands and kids" and said: "I stayed loyal and committed to you no matter what and what did I get from it? Nothing at all."
She continued: "I know you and Helen had a full-on relationship while you were sleeping with me. She met your kids, family and stayed in The Stafford with you, you went to Barcelona with her and told her you wanted to marry and have kids."
The letter said "Helen" and Giggs were "in constant contact, even now" and she later added: "I believe you loved and still love Helen but you cheated on her with me."
Ms Greville went on to say: "You and Zara were also in a full-on relationship for nearly a year," adding that Giggs "got your Harrods guy to send her a pair of shoes and a dress".
"I know about Natalie and Suzie, not to mention Kelly," Ms Greville said, "all going on when you were seeing me, and not to mention Kelly and the most recent incident with Zara".
She also accused him of "sending messages about threesomes with Charlotte from Hotel Football".
The letter also detailed an incident of Giggs "s***ging someone else" when he was supposed to be picking her up.
Ms Greville added: "Let's not forget about (name redacted) who gives me a smug smile every time I see her and now I know why, you were s***ging her for ages."
The letter continued: "It's sad you could never be honest with me about everything. I find it hard to accept I fell in love with a person who didn’t exist.
"I will never come to terms with the fact the last six years with you was a lie.
"You were constantly telling me you want to be happy but us girls can always tell when a man is lying and cheating.
"A little bit of advice: If you want to be happy with someone, be honest. Don't cheat."
The trial, which is due to finish next week, continues.
