Sometimes throwbacks make us realize how life has managed to veil. Like really veil us. Because, a whole new generation of people is waking up to the fact that back in 2007, Bollywood actor Bipasha Basu and footballer Cristiano Ronaldo were estranged in a controversy over a photo leak.
It is not unknown that the Portuguese footballer, Cristiano Ronaldo’s ‘player’ status well goes with him off the field, having dated some of the world’s well-known women. But apparently, many Indian’s forgot that he even had a thing with now happily married actor Bipasha Basu.
Back in 2007 during the ceremony for naming the new Seven Wonders of the world, the duo met on the stage of Lisbon’s Luz stadium, according to reports. While they thoroughly entertained the crowd on the state, things took a little different turn in the backstage.
According to DNA, a British tabloid wrote a bomb of an article, telling that the then Manchester United winger and Basu got ‘physical’ while partying after the ceremony, and to add to the spice, pictures of the two kissings certainly surfaced online.
At that time, the image of Basu kissing Ronaldo went viral on the internet, and Bipasha was dating John Abraham, who, according to reports, went furious over the image and even went on to an extent to call their relationship quits.
Bipasha said that it was her dream to meet Ronaldo and “he (Ronaldo) is so cute and it was strange when he called me cute,” she was quoted as saying. “He is a friend now and he has promised me that I will be invited for all his matches,” she added.
Bipasha Basu is happily married to Karan Singh Grover. Currently, Cristiano Ronaldo is dating model Georgina Rodriguez and both have a baby together.
