Usain Bolt has been on a full party mode this week. After partying hard in Rio on his 30th birthday, he continued the party spirit in London. Of course, given his recent exploits in the racing tracks of the Rio Olympics, one could ask, why shouldn’t he?
However, his party lifestyle has recently brought him a lot of negative press. Following the leak of a series of photos that show him in bed with a Brazilian student, Jady Durate, other photos of him with a mystery woman in London have emerged. Bolt was spotted leaving his hotel with a woman wearing a revealing dress.
And it looks like Bolt’s girlfriend isn’t too happy with all these rumors of his infidelity, if her recent activities on social media are anything to go by. Kasi Bennett or the “First Lady” as Bolt prefers to call her, has indicated that she is unimpressed by Bolt’s acts by liking social media posts criticizing Bolt for his alleged philandering.
According to the Daily Mail, Bennett liked a meme on Instagram that compared her with Jady Durate, and had a caption that read “When you girl is Selfridges, and you cheat on her with Primark.” Bennett also liked another tweet that criticized Usain Bolt : ”You traded your life with a goddess for a one night fling with someone who will never even come close.”
Bennett has been with Usain Bolt for two years and there had been strong speculations that the pair were set to tie the knot soon. Rumors started floating around after Bolt’s sister, Christine Bolt-Hylton, told The Sun that Bolt and his girlfriend were serious and that she expected the couple to get engaged following his return to the UK.
“I’m sure Kasi will be used to it by now. She is used to seeing pictures like this.”
“People ask for pictures with him and he is always willing to have pictures. She is used to him being in the public domain.”
“I don’t think anything happened between him and the Brazilian girl. He loves Kasi too much to jeopardise the relationship. I’m looking at the pictures and it doesn’t look like he was doing anything with her.”
The photos that were shared from the messaging app WhatsApp show a shirtless Bolt kissing and cuddling with Jady in a bed. More raunchy pictures of Bolt kissing and twerking with different women during his 30th birthday bash in the Rio Nightclub have emerged since the Jady Durate leak.
When Bolt’s sister, Christine, was asked if Kasi would be displeased with all these pictures, she continued to defend her brother and his relationship with Kasi, while also debunking all the cheating allegations.
“The pictures are of a young girl. I know she will be upset. But she will talk to him and I know they can work their difficulties out.”
“Usain doesn’t believe in cheating. Normally when we speak he sees he is against stuff like that. He has never done this before as far as I know.”
“Kasi was definitely OK with the party pictures. The pictures with the girl he should definitely apologize for.”
“He would never cheat. He was brought up by his parents never to do such things. He was brought up in a Christian home and his mother doesn’t support that lifestyle. So I don’t think he would ever cheat.”
“When he was much younger he was popular with the girls but from when they have been together he hasn’t done anything like that.”
So will Usain Bolt and Kasi Bennett in fact get engaged as Bolt’s sister seems to believe or are we experiencing the build up of a high profile break-up following a sex scandal? Of course we have seen that happen before, but only time will tell what will happen here.
