Manchester United’s Ryan Giggs Had ‘Sex’ With Sister-In Law Natasha: Imogen Thomas Might Weep

by | 5th, June 2011

RYAN Giggs had an eight-year-affair with his brother’s wife, one Natasha Giggs? The News of The World makes the claim on its front page.

If true, this is hard luck on Imogen Thomas, who was the only woman other than Giggs’ wife who had shagged the married family man. Now, we learn that Imogen is, allegedly, no longer unique. And more cruelly she wasn’t even the first. That’s important. As any Manchester United fan will attest, no-one remembers who came second.

But why is Natasha telling all now? A source tells us that she told them:

“I’d rather people knew exactly what happened between me and Ryan rather than them listening to hearsay and gossip… My eldest son is now also at an age where he can read and if he’s going to see things and hear things, it’s important he knows the truth.”

Got that? Whereas Ryan Giggs wanted to protect his kids by concealing the alleged truth of his extra-martial affair, his sister in law wants to protect her kids by talking about her extra-marital shags with the Manchester United player in the tabloids.

The NoTW claims that Giggs shagged his sister in law Natasha right up to April 9, 2011. She tells the paper:

“It’s important to me that everybody knows about what really happened rather than believing rumours. Ryan and I have already had an affair for eight years. What’s to say it wouldn’t have carried on for another eight years? It’s a terrible secret I’ve had to keep for too long now.”

Rhodri Giggs is Ryan’s younger brother. He told us:

“We were typical brothers growing up. I even became a Liverpool fan just to wind Ryan up.”

He’s played football for Torquay, Bangor City, Aberystwyth Town and Livingston. He’s the part-time manager of Salford City in the Evo-Stik First Division North. He earns his crust working as a van driver. In 2006, Rhodri told us:

Rhodri Giggs chuckles mischievously at the suggestion he would ever pretend to be his brother to attract the ladies.

“Maybe,” he says. “Or I got my mates to do it. It worked most of the time as well!”

Today we learn that his wife was, allegedly, shagging Ryan at Manchester’s Radisson Edwardian and The Lowry hotels. Was this also a case of mistaken identity? Does one R. Giggs look much like another R Giggs?

Is one Giggs very much like another Giggs to the NoTW? The younger Giggs was once the target of a NoTW story:

Rhodri Giggs, 22, the brother of Ryan Giggs, was acquitted of supplying drugs at a Manchester nightclub after the Crown Prosecution Service (CPS) offered no evidence.

David Friesner, for the prosecution, told the Crown Court in Manchester that the CPS had serious concerns over evidence relating to tape recorded and telephone conversations between Mr Giggs and the News of the World.

Mr Friesner said that the Crown could not now resist the defence’s application to exclude this evidence.

Judge Stuart Fish formally acquitted Mr Giggs, then asked whether charges of inciting to supply drugs and illegal possession had been considered against the reporter, Mazher Mahmood.

The story went:

Mr Giggs was arrested in October after being accused by the News of the World of supplying cocaine to an undercover reporter. After the case, he said that he was considering suing the newspaper, alleging that he was the victim of a “set up”.

Next to the article published last April headlined “Giggsy’s brother peddles cocaine and vice”, Mr Giggs was pictured posing with his brother, Ryan, and Mr Mahmood, the newspaper’s investigations editor, outside the £16m Marriot Hotel and Country Club in Worsley, Greater Manchester.

Is anyone fair game for the tabloids so long as they are related to someone famous?

And so to today’s story in the NoTW:

She explained to her chum: “There were a couple of occasions where we’d meet up for sex at flats which were up for renting. The first place we used was in a really bad area and was really horrible inside. It didn’t even have any furniture. I didn’t think Ryan would come up but he did. The second flat was much nicer. Ryan would arrange to meet me early at my work – he’d pass on his way to training at Carrington.”

Couldn’t he afford a weekend away or a secret shag
