Ryan Giggs’ father Danny Wilson, 61, has accused the former footballer of ‘abandoning’ his brother Rhodri, 40, after having a secret eight-year affair with his sibling’s wife.
His affair with Rhodri’s ex-wife Natasha had emerged back in 2011, with the brunette bombshell then going on to star in Big Brother and revealing she enjoyed the ‘thrill’ of secretly having sex with Ryan.
Speaking out against the Manchester United star, Ryan’s father has claimed he has ‘no remorse’ over the fling and has ‘never said sorry’ to his brother for his wrongdoing.
Speaking to Daily Star, Danny revealed Rhodri was left devastated by the affair and still hasn’t moved on – six years after it was first uncovered.
He explained that Rhodri, now ‘penniless and homeless’, has moved away from Manchester to stay with family in Wales. Danny added that he can no longer bring himself to say son Ryan’s name, as he claimed: ‘If he would just apologize, Rhodri could move on.’
Ryan’s father claimed instead of apologizing, the sports star instead told Rhodri his affair with Natasha was ‘only ever about sex’.
However, Danny’s comments come after it was reported Ryan had apologized to Rhodri and phoned his brother ‘out of the blue’ in 2015, four years after news of his affair with Natasha came to light.
At the time, it was claimed the brothers were reconciling in an attempt to rebuild their relationship – with sources insisting Rhodri had put the betrayal behind him.
A source told The Sun: ‘Ryan rang Rhodri out of the blue a few weeks ago. Rhodri moved on a long time ago but was adamant Ryan had to make the first move as he was the one who had done wrong.’
The affair was first revealed in June 2011 when Rhodri’s wife Natasha admitted to secretly sleeping with the former star winger over an eight year period in an interview with a Sunday paper. She claimed she had aborted Ryan’s baby just weeks before she got married to Rhodri in Las Vegas.
