Manchester City player Riyad Mahrez is reportedly furious after heavyweight champion Deontay Wilder flirted with his ex-model wife Rita in a nightclub.
Friends say the pair were ‘chatting intently’ at Wilder’s VIP table in the trendy Manchester nightspot, popular among big-spending footballers and WAGS.
In a report by The Sun, a witness revealed that the duo were seen chatting with full concentration at the club
‘They were chatting intently, laughing and joking. You could see there was chemistry there and a real connection. But because of where it was, a lot of people noticed how well they seemed to be getting along.’
It’s a club full of footballers and Wags, which even some of Riyad’s team-mates go to. Rita was actually on a night out with Riyad’s sisters who she really gets on with.
And they did not appear to be happy with what was going on. One even seemed to go and get Rita, to take her away from Deontay, who was of course trying to keep her with him.
Reports of the pair’s encounter at LIv’s nightclub quickly made their way back to the Algerian winger, who is a Muslim non-drinker who eschews the typical footballer lifestyle.
Sources said he was ‘devastated’ to hear how Wilder, the WBC champ and father-of-eight who is known for his freakish punching power, seemed to hit it off with Rita so quickly.
