RYAN Giggs’ sobbing ex-girlfriend told police he had cheated on her with a dozen women, a court heard yesterday.
Police body camera footage showed Kate Greville, 38, claiming on the night Giggs allegedly headbutted her.
Before the trial it was alleged that the former Man United star, 48, had eight relationships.
Kate cried as she described being locked up with him as “hell”, a court heard yesterday.
He told jurors the football legend became “angrier and more aggressive” and it was “a horrible time for me”.
Police body camera footage was played in court yesterday from the night the former Manchester United star allegedly headbutted Kate.
And the jury heard she told cops he had cheated on her with a dozen women.
The footage showed Kate crying as she dabbed her lip with a tissue.
She told police: “I basically found a load of crap before I told him and kept it to myself.
“I discovered that I had cheated on myself over the last six years with ten or 12 women.
“Every time I found something that got worse, I found her iPad, I kept it all to myself for two weeks.”
Earlier in the case, the court heard Giggs, 48, had eight affairs, which Greville discovered on his tablet.
He said they were “full relationships that had been consistently maintained since 2014.”
The footage emerged on the fourth day of Giggs’ trial at Manchester Crown Court. The former Wales international is accused of controlling and coercive behavior towards Kate between August 2017 and November 2020.
He is also accused of assaulting Kate occasioning actual bodily harm and common assault on her sister.
Giggs denies all charges.
“You are a manipulator”
The court also heard that:
- KATE suffered panic attacks during confinement with Giggs;
- GIGGS allegedly made it difficult for Kate to see friends and family during their relationship;
- KATE admitted lying to Giggs about a smear test showing cancer cells because she “shouldn’t have sex with him”.
She broke down in tears as she told a jury how Giggs left her suffering panic attacks after being trapped in “hell” during lockdown.
Kate said: “I felt like I was losing my mind. I was having panic attacks. It was a horrible time for me.”
Defense barrister Chris Daw QC asked him: “You suggested the lockdown was a period of hell and there was nothing good about it.
Basically, I found a bunch of crap before I told him and kept to myself. I discovered that he had cheated on me over the past six years with ten or 12 women.
“Couldn’t you have stayed at your parents’ house?” Breaking down in tears, she said: “Yes, I wanted to stay with Ryan.
“It was a cycle of abuse that made me feel insecure. I kept coming back, he kept promising the world.
“He made me believe I wouldn’t do it again and stupidly I went back. I’m so ashamed, but I did it.” Mr Daw played two videos of the couple in confinement.
They were exercising together in the garden and appeared in a TikTok video rapping to 50 Cent’s In Da Club.
Mr Daw told her the lockdown was “hard on everyone” but the couple were doing “fun things”, such as having Michelin-starred chefs cook for them, wine tasting on Zoom and online quizzes.
PR executive Kate said: “It wasn’t all fun. It doesn’t mean he was nice to me all the time.”
Kate claimed she had “conditioned” him to reply to texts within seconds and isolated him from friends and family. But Daw pointed to a series of photos of Kate on holiday with friends in 2019 and 2020, when she visited Malta, Ibiza, Greece, Portugal and had also been skiing.
Kate denied having “active, regular and very enthusiastic sex” with Giggs at the time she had a contraceptive coil removed and rejected the suggestion that her plan was to get pregnant.
She admitted lying to Giggs that she had been told she had cancer cells after a smear test, saying it was to cover up the fact she was going for an STD test, which came back negative. Giggs was branded a “pig” by Kate after she found messages on his phone to another woman after she moved in with him during the pandemic.
Following the alleged incident in August 2020, just five months after they started living together at Giggs’ £1.7million mansion in Worsley, Gtr Manchester, she sent him a message: ‘Thanks for losing time you absolute pig you are vile go to hell you absolute skank.
It was a cycle of abuse that made me feel insecure. I kept coming back, he kept promising the world.
“You are a liar, a cheater, a narcissist, a manipulator, a controller, an aggressive, a violent, a disappointment. He is not leaving my life.
Giggs replied in an email: “So angry you can’t write. Chills. Kate you haven’t caught me in bed with anyone. I sent a few drunk texts chills baby. I wish I’d cheated now.” . In another she said: “Call the therapist, Kate.”
Later in the exchange, he told her, “I don’t care about you.”
The mother of one was asked about an alleged incident at The Stafford London hotel on December 6, 2019.
She said Giggs kicked her out of bed and threw a laptop bag at her head, before kicking her out of the room naked.
He also claimed that he threw her naked in the corridor of a hotel in Dubai in September 2017.
Giggs is accused of assaulting Kate on November 1, 2020, after a night out. He said he head butted her in the face.
He is also accused of assaulting his sister Emma, 26.
His mother, Lynne, was watched in court yesterday. The trial continues.
