We will be sharing some details about Man Utd Anthony Martial’s relationship and his cheating scandal with a model.
The Manchester United star was reportedly dumped by his wife after he cheated on her while she was pregnant.
His wife Melanie Da Cruz, 30, told fans online that “love wasn’t enough”, adding: “Sometimes to win a race you have to stop running.”
A source told the Daily Star Sunday: “Things aren’t going brilliantly for Martial on the pitch and it looks like life at home has been rocky too.
“Melanie’s statement came as a shock to her fans and it’s probably the icing on the cake after a bad few months for Anthony.
“They’ve had their struggles. All they care about going forward is the well-being of their son and raising him amicably.”
The two met in 2016 when Martial split with Samantha Jacquelinet, with whom he has two children. In 2019, it was reported that Martial had an affair with French model Malika Semichi, when Da Cruz was heavily pregnant.
Martial reportedly bedded French model Malika Semichi in a budget hotel while his girlfriend Melanie was eight months pregnant.
The star allegedly romped with Malika Semichi in a £70-a-night two-star hotel in Paris a week after the pair met in a nightclub. According to the TheSun.
The claims came just months after the model revealed to The Sun the steamy messages sent by the football star while his girlfriend Melanie Da Cruz was heavily pregnant with their son Swan.
The baby boy was born later that month – just weeks after the alleged fling in Paris.
Model Malika, 20, told the Daily Star Sunday that she was “surprised” at the hotel, the star picked as it was “rundown and cheap” but she presumed he didn’t want anyone to see them together because of his girlfriend.
While talking about how they met, the model said; “it “started off pretty friendly” before getting personal.
“I knew he had a girlfriend, but he kept telling me they weren’t having sex because she was pregnant.” She said.
“He kept referring to me as his second girlfriend. He made me feel special.”
She told the paper the pair decided to meet at the Hotel De Midi near the Gare de Lyon train station on July 3, 2018, last year.
The model said: “It was over pretty quickly. I was surprised because he seemed really in shape.”
She says that while the pair continued to chat for several months after the alleged romp, Malika called time on the relationship as she “didn’t want to get hurt”. TheSun reported.
“I really cared for him. It felt special. But in the end it was clear he was just using me… I didn’t want to pursue a relationship with someone who was already in one and I didn’t want to get hurt.”
Malika said: “In one of the messages he asked me for a threesome but I wouldn’t do that. He was pestering me for a meet-up.”
She continued: “He said I’d have to come and see him in Manchester so no one would see us. He was so scared of his girlfriend finding out.
“I entertained it for a bit because I’d liked him so much. But I knew how wrong it was. He had a three-month-old baby at home.
“If the circumstances were different I definitely would have pursued a relationship with him. As it stands, I think he should be ashamed of himself.”
