Francesco Totti, former number 10 of As Roma, spoke about the end of his marriage with Ilary Blasi after 20 years together. And she did it in a scoop interview of the Corriere della Serasigned by one of the largest interviewers of the newspaper, Aldo Cazzullo. “Everyone talks about it, except me. I haven’t said a word yet. But I’ve read too much nonsense, too many hoaxes. Now that’s enough », says the historic Giallorossi captain. “In particular one: that the culprit of the breakup would be only me. That the marriage would end because of my betrayal. But I was not the first to betray“. The reference is to the alleged betrayal of Totti with Noemi Bocchi34 years: Dagospia published a photo in which on 4 December 2021 the two are seated not far away at the stadium.
The rupture between two of the most iconic figures of the Italian show has held court for weeks on the pages of the newspapers. Totti explained to Cazzullo that the real crisis exploded between March and April last year, but that he had been suffering for some time. “It all started in 2016. My penultimate year as a footballer. Quitting isn’t easy. It’s a bit like dying, ”says Totti. «I was fragile, I lacked references – continues the former player – and Ilary did not understand the importance of this pain. Then came October 12, 2021 ”, the date on which his father died due to the Coronavirus. That, combined with their quarantine period with Covid-19, has begun to crack the relationship: “My wife wasn’t there when I needed her most. In the spring of 2021 we went into crisis definitively. There was no more dialogue, there was no longer anything ». Totti recognizes that the blame for her breakup belongs to both of them, that he too should have been with her more and devote more attention to her.
“Noemi was not at the stadium with me”
As for his alleged betrayal with Bocchi, Totti specifies that in December Noemi was not at the stadium with him. “Do you think I’m taking my lover to the Olimpico?” A more intimate environment isn’t it? She says, admitting however that she frequented her as a friend with her padel friends. «Our story began after the New Year. And it was consolidated in March 2022 ».
“I was not the first to betray”
At this point, Totti reveals to the Corriere: “In September of last year the rumors began to reach me: look that Ilary has another one, or rather more than one. It seemed impossible to me. Instead I found the messagesHe says, admitting he looked at her cell phone. “I saw that there was a third person (Alessia, Ilary’s hairdresser) who acted as an intermediary between Ilary and another”. Totti says he noticed it in the fall, but that his messages dated back to an earlier period. This man, she says, is a person “totally different” from him. “It was a shock. Also that he might be interested in such a man. ‘
The alleged messages between Ilary and the other man
In the long interview, Totti decides to reveal the content of the messages as well: «They said: let’s meet at the hotel; no, it’s more prudent of me. […] She said to me: this year I will stay a little longer in Milan, I am going back to Rome less, and I thought: I believe it, you have this other one ». The situation, says the Captain, threw him in depression: «I could no longer sleep. I pretended nothing happened but it wasn’t me anymore. I got out thanks to Noemi »..
The beginning of the relationship with Noemi
The former Giallorossi number 10 has also decided to provide explanations on the beginning of his relationship with Bocchi. The snap from friendship to history came after the New Year. After the photo was posted on Dagospia, Ilary asked him if it was true, and he denied that there was anything. “But at that point I asked her about this other man – says Totti, explaining that even Ilary denied at first – then admitting that they had only met with that guy to have a coffee”.CopyAMP code
The end of the marriage
