Ryan Giggs ‘kicked naked girlfriend out of 5-star hotel in row over him flirting with other women’

 

RYAN Giggs is accused of kicking his ex-girlfriend in the back then throwing her out of her hotel room naked.

The former Manchester United ace, 48, allegedly assaulted Kate Greville at the five-star Stafford London in a row over him flirting with other women.

Giggs is also accused of attacking the 36-year-old and her sister Emma Greville at his £1.7million home in Worsley, Greater Manchester, on November 1, 2020.

And he faces a string of controlling or coercive behaviour accusations between August 31, 2017, and November 2, 2020.

This includes threatening to send emails to Kate’s friends and employers about her sexual behaviour, as well as making unwanted calls when she tried to break off the relationship.

The former Wales boss also allegedly turned up unannounced and uninvited at her home, workplace and gym, and chucked her belongings out of his house when she asked him about his relationships with other women.

Giggs denies causing Kate actual bodily harm and engaging in controlling and coercive behaviour.

He has also pleaded not guilty to the common assault by beating of Emma Greville on November 1.

The footballer was surrounded by a scrum of photographers and TV crews as he turned up at Minshull Street Crown Court this morning.

Later, wearing a dark suit, white shirt, and tie, he stood in the dock and identified himself to the clerk.

Opening the case for the prosecution, Peter Wright QC said Giggs was “idolised by his adoring fans” and described his skills on the pitch as “abundant and a thing of beauty”.

But he told the jury that behind closed doors was a “much uglier and more sinister side to his character”.

“This was a private life that involved a litany of abuse, both physical and psychological, of a woman he professed to love,” he said.

“A woman who, in reality, was, if the evidence is to be believed, treated in a way that cannot be excused or overlooked, by either an adoring public, or the law.

“This is a story of control and coercion of a woman who thought she was loved and respected, sadly the reality was very different.”

He went on to tell the jury about the alleged events on November 1 2020.

‘HEATED’ ARGUMENT

The jury heard how Kate had told her sister she intended to leave the football star – but he returned home and the pair began to argue.

He said: “The argument became heated. He tried to grab her phone.”

Mr Wright said Giggs then pushed Ms Greville to the ground, causing bruising to her arm.

He said they were grappling on the floor when her sister Emma stepped in – and he “deliberately elbowed” her.

Mr Wright alleged Giggs then “entirely lost his self-control” and “deliberately headbutted” Kate.

Police were called and she told officers of the “toxic” nature of the relationship, it is alleged.

He was meant to go on trial in January but the case was adjourned due to a backlog following the pandemic.

Giggs is on conditional bail and must not contact Kate or Emma Greville, or go to any address where they are.

He won 64 caps for Wales and had a glittering playing career with Man Utd, winning 13 Premier League titles, two Champions League trophies, four FA Cups and three League Cups.

He is also a co-owner of League Two side Salford City.

Giggs has denied the allegations and previously issued a statement in which he said he would “look forward to clearing my name”.
