Former Chelsea goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois had an affair with the partner of former Chelsea teammate Kevin De Bruyne.
The incident happened in 2012 while both players were in Chelsea books.
De Bruyne’s then girlfriend Caroline Lijnen spoke out on her fling with Courtois.
“Kevin cheated on me,” she told Belgian publication Story Magazine.
“I did not say anything for months because I couldn’t say anything, as Kevin’s parents said they would take legal action if I gave my story.
“I was under pressure and I could not have contact with Kevin.
“I respected everything. But in his book Keep it Simple Kevin wrote a passage about my affair with Thibaut. So, I decided to remain silent no longer.
“In the summer of 2012, Kevin told me that he had an affair with my old best friend. I gave him the choice: her or me. I was ready to give him another chance, but our relationship was never the same afterwards.
“[I then went to Madrid, and even] Kevin thought that this trip was a good idea. I asked him beforehand. But then something happened that should never have happened.
“That evening, Thibaut offered me what I had not received during a three-year relationship with Kevin. With Thibaut, I could talk about anything and everything and he had even prepared me a delicious meal. Kevin never did it for me.
“Kevin had deceived me and I thought ‘Why shouldn’t I do that too?’”
De Bruyne was said to have been ‘devastated’ after the incident, but the midfielder has seemingly patched up his differences with Courtois.
