A scandal has apparently befallen Usain Bolt only days after he made history in the Olympic Games, having won gold in the men’s 100m, 200m and the 4x100m categories for the third time in a row. Leaked photos of him in bed with a 20-year-old college student, who has been revealed to be the widow of a notorious drug lord “Diná Terror” as revealed by the Daily Mail, have gone viral in the internet. This could turn into a pretty serious scandal, especially considering that Bolt has been in a relationship with his girlfriend Kasi Bennett, whom he calls his “first lady”, for 2 years now. Bolt’s girlfriend, who has been unbelievably supportive of him throughout Olympics, has now apparently deleted her twitter account.
The photo, which was taken during Bolt’s “wild” 30th birthday celebration on Aug 21, was leaked by an unknown source via WhatsApp, which is the most popular messaging app in Brazil. Now to be honest, the photo doesn’t look too harmful, with Bolt sharing a embrace and maybe a little cuddle with 20-year-old Jady Duarte. But to be fair to a girlfriend’s eyes, it also shows him shirtless in bed with the college girl. We don’t know for sure if Bolt did cheat on his girlfriend, but to make matters more suspicious, his girlfriend of two years has now apparently deleted her twitter account.
Bolt’s 30th birthday party lasted until the early hours of the morning and took place at a club called All In in the Barra de Tijuca suburb of Rio, as reported by The Sun. Videos of him dirty dancing with someone in the bar had been released earlier today by various media outlets, and it had raised questions as to where his girlfriend was. All of these incidents follow just days after Bolt’s sister had announced that Kasi Bennett would make a perfect wife for him. So could Bolt have cheated on his first lady?
Although there have been no official remarks from Bolt regarding the accusations, we are yet to hear what the world’s fastest man has to say regarding the allegations that he cheated on his girlfriend. But according to the girl he allegedly cheated on her with, Jady Duarte, Bolt reportedly used the help of the security workers at the bar to get her attention. In an interview published by local newspaper Extra, Jady revealed that she actually did not know who he was when he sent security over to get her attention.
“He sent security to call me, talk quickly. But at the time I did not even know it was him because they were like many Jamaicans.”
The 20-year-old says nothing else happened and remained hesitant to reveal anything more about her encounter with the world’s fastest man.
“It was not a big deal. It was normal. I’d rather not talk about it to not complicate it.”
Jady has posted a cryptic message on twitter regarding the incident. “Quer saber? Peguei mesmo!!!!!!!” translates to “Want to know? I took it!!!!!!!”
Bolt owes his unprecedented fame and fortune to his exploits on the track. After winning three gold metals in the men’s 100m sprint, men’s 200m sprint and the 4×100 men’s relay in the 2008 Olympics in Beijing, Bolt became a worldwide sensation and endorsement deals came pouring in. He then went on to set new world records for the 100m and 200m sprints, clocking in at 9.58 seconds and 19.19 seconds respectively, in the 2009 Berlin World Championships. This earned him the title of “the world’s fastest man” and truly made him a global superstar.
Rio 2016 was his last Olympic Games. Bolt, who turned 30 on August 21, right after making history in the games, had already announced before the competitions that he would be retiring after the 2017 World Championships in London.
