Chelsea boss Thomas Tuchel seen on holiday with new Brazilian girlfriend, 35, days after divorcing wife of 13 years


CHELSEA boss Thomas Tuchel has found love again with a glamorous Brazilian — days after his divorce was granted.

Tuchel, 48, whisked away business boss and mother Natalie Max, 35, to relaxing Sardinia.

A holidaymaker said: “They held hands at every opportunity and looked really happy.”

Beaming Tuchel put a tender hand on his new girlfriend and laughed with her in the sea on the romantic break. 

The German and Max enjoyed a sunset boat trip before he escorted her back to their £20,000-a-night private villa. 

The Brazilian mum-of-two also swam with him in the Med off Sardinia.

One holidaymaker said: “They looked very much in love. At one stage Natalie ran her hand round the back of his neck and leaned in for a kiss.

“They went swimming, chilled on the beach, lunched in the hotel’s restaurant and got a boat to the island of Caprera.”

German Tuchel’s new-found love comes days after his divorce from journalist wife Sissi was granted at London’s High Court.

He had been on Chelsea’s pre-season tour of the US before flying to Sardinia with London-based Natalie.

She runs her own business and once featured on the Yummy Mummy UK website, where she was described as a “mum who rocks” and “a real inspiration”.

Tuchel and Sissi, 46, announced their 13-year marriage was over in April. A source said: “They tried to avoid splitting but in the end there was no other way.”

She petitioned for divorce on the grounds of irreconcilable differences and a decree nisi was approved last month, according to court documents.

Last Wednesday, in a written order, Mr Justice Mostyn said he was satisfied that Tuchel had behaved in such a way that Mrs Tuchel could not reasonably be expected to stay with him.

The Chelsea boss was satisfied the marriage had broken down irretrievably.

The couple are believed to have reached a multi-million pound settlement ahead of a decree absolute, expected in the next six weeks.

Tuchel’s Chelsea future was plunged into crisis when Russia invaded Ukraine and the UK Government slapped sanctions on then-owner Roman Abramovich.

The club was banned from selling tickets, signing players or giving new contracts to existing players. But Chelsea boss is on a more secure footing since US tycoon Todd Boehly paid £4.25bn for the Blues.
