Former Manchester United player Ryan Giggs has had “full relationships” with eight other women while dating the ex-girlfriend he is accused of assaulting, a court has heard.
R manager Kate Greville, 36, claimed she discovered the footballer’s affairs on his tablet computer just before she decided to leave him.
Giggs, 48, is said to have headbutted her at his home in Worsley, Greater Manchester on November 1, 2020.
A police interview with Ms Greville was shown to a jury at Manchester Crown Court on Tuesday.
She said Giggs constantly denied he cheated on her, but she “needed to know the truth,” so she checked his device.
She said: “The reality of what I found on this iPad was far worse than I could have imagined.
“Eight women he had affairs with while he was with me. Complete relationships.”
She told police she met Giggs in 2013 and they began an affair when they were both married, and she left her husband two months later.
“It was like he was my best friend, but there were definitely red flags,” she said of Giggs.
She told police: “It was like he was almost two people. It was like, ‘Is he a good person? Is he a bad person?’
“I started getting terribly scared.”
She described an incident during their relationship when the former Welsh winger “fell over” in a hotel room and grabbed her wrists “hard”.
She said he “literally dragged her naked body across the floor” before dumping her things in the corridor.
Ms Greville said she was left “humiliated and embarrassed” when she found herself stripped down the middle of the corridor.
She added: “That was the first time he was aggressive to me.”
Ms Greville said that after more stormy times in their relationship, Giggs told her he had a “plan” and they were going to get a dog and she moved into his house.
She added: “It was just on a different level. There were a lot of put-downs that pissed me off all the time. Really secretive with his phone.”
Ms Greville said Giggs would tell her to leave, then ask her to come back and then criticize her if his dinner wasn’t ready.
“He kind of set me on fire,” she said.
“A very subtle thing. I was like his maid or his mother when his tea wasn’t ready on time.”
Giggs is said to have “lost control” and headbutted Ms Greville after she decided to leave him, before elbowing her sister Emma in the jaw as she tried to pull him from Ms Greville as she clinging to the ground.
After a leave of absence since November 2020, he stepped down as manager of the Wales national team in June.
He denies using controlling and coercive behavior against Ms Greville, assaulting her, causing actual physical harm and collectively assaulting her younger sister between August 2017 and November 2020.
