Rolex revenge: the messy divorce of ‘Italy’s Posh and Becks’ – Ilary Blasi took her footballer ex-husband Francesco Totti’s watches, and now he’s hidden her designer bags and shoes
But, unfortunately, the couple did not live happily ever after. They announced their split in July and it soon got ugly, with allegations of cheating, lack of support and mental health issues, as per British media.
After nearly two decades together, the former couple clearly knew where it would hurt the most. Many A-listers maintain enviable designer handbag collections, but Blasi seems to love hers so much that her daughter is even named Chanel.
Totti, the former Roma icon, told Corriere della Sera, “What was I supposed to do? I hid the bags, hoping for an exchange.” A source close to Totti revealed to Italian media: “All she has to do is return the watches, and this is over.”
The pair’s first court hearing was on October 14.
Blasi, a former TV personality, model and actress, started working in the entertainment industry at age three and made her acting debut in a small role in the Giorgio Capitani movie David & David. Growing up, she was also part of several Italian beauty pageants and TV shows.
Totti, meanwhile, began playing football at the age of eight, starting out in youth teams before joining his first Serie A game at 16. Then, of course, he went on to enjoy a successful career playing for Roma from 1993 to 2017 as an adult.
