Italian media personality, Melissa Satta, has blasted critics who reportedly called her out for injuring Kevin-Prince Boateng with sex.
Speaking with Vanity Fair, Satta did not spare the hints as she lashed back on faceless online trolls who said she was being too demanding for sex with ex-husband Kevin-Prince Boateng, making the latter sustained an injury that nearly ended his career.
Satta is not in a relationship with Kevin-Prince Boateng again. As per the Sun, the pair married for nine years before breaking up.
After parting ways with Boateng, Melissa Satta is now dating another sports star, an Italian tennis ace, Matteo Berrettini.
Matteo Berrettini, his new lover, is struggling with injury problems just as Melissa Satta’s ex-husband Kevin-Prince Boateng.
The Sun reports Berrettini missed out of Italian Open and is now set to miss out of another tennis tournament, Madrid Open, due to injury. The niggling injury has prompted online sports fans to called out Melissa Satta again for denting the career of Berrettini just as she nearly did when she married Kevin-Prince Boateng.
Replying her trolls, Satta launch a tirade on the erring anonymous online faces calling them sexists for accusing her of Berrettini’s injury.
According to her, Berrettini is injured in the same region he sustained an injury in 2021 before she met him and she is not the cause of his injury as the trolls say.
Melissa Satta disclosed she has been in a relationship with Berrettini for a while before their love affair surfaced on the media in January 2023.
She also absolved herself of the “too much sex” factor that could have purportedly caused Berrettini’s injury.
“Our story is something that has been happening before everything was revealed in January”, she said.
“They are saying Berrettini doesn’t win because I am distracting him.
“These are bullies and sexists and they have done this when I was with my ex-husband (Kevin-Prince Boateng).
“Berrettini is injured in the same place before I met him.”
