‘Infatuated’ Ryan Giggs sent X-rated poem to girlfriend Kate Greville after calling her ‘my sunshine’ in flirty texts | The Sun

RYAN Giggs sent his former girlfriend Kate Greville an X-rated poem saying she makes him "hard as a totem pole" after a string of flirty messages, a court heard.

The former Manchester United player is on trial accused of assaulting his ex, as well as controlling and coercive behaviour towards her.

Manchester Crown Court heard how Giggs, 48, sent Ms Greville a number of messages, saying he was "infatuated" as he described her as "my sunshine" and "my one and only".

She later sent the former football star a poem, which included the line "everyday you do me proud, because you're well endowed".

The court heard how this then prompted Giggs to pen an X-rated poem in response, which included the line "you make me feel funny down there…when you look up and stare".

Giggs – who denies all charges he faces – also wrote about "those pictures you sent so I can keep tabs on you" in the piece, jurors were told.

It comes after the court heard how Giggs used his teenage daughter as leverage to try to stop his ex-girlfriend's sister dialling 999 during a drunken row.

Giggs is accused of headbutting then-partner Ms Greville before threatening to do the same to her younger sibling Emma at his home in Greater Manchester.

As Giggs returned to the witness box for a second day of cross-examination, Manchester Crown Court was told Emma called police after the argument on November 1, 2020, turned violent.

Giggs allegedly placed his hands on Ms Greville's shoulders and headbutted her in the lip "with lots of force" before yelling at Emma: "I'll headbutt you next."

Poem read out in court

THE court heard how Giggs sent this X-rated poem to Kate Greville:

My darling Kate

Unequivocally our love was fate

I fell in love with you at first sight

I remember coz I was as high as a kite

Those beautiful eyes, made me shiver

I’m not gonna lie, I think of you, I dream of you

Can’t help thinking, pulling you was my greatest ever coo (sic)

That stomach, those abs, those pictures you sent

So I can keep tabs on you, makes me feel funny down there

Especially when you are there and you look up and stare

I’m beginning to think you are always right

That’s okay it will keep us tight

I’m gonna end by saying you are my love, my friend, my soul

And most of all you believe in me

Which makes me feel as hard as a totem pole. xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

Prosecutor Peter Wright QC told jurors he had tried to use "emotional blackmail" to stop Emma going into detail to the cops, which he denied.

Ms Greville can be heard saying to her then-boyfriend in the background of the call: "I don't care if your daughter is 17, I don't care about your daughter."

Mr Wright asked Giggs, 48, whether he was "seeking to dissuade" Emma from reporting the incident further, to which he replied: "Yes."

Mr Wright added: "And you were seeking to use your daughter as the lever, weren't you?"

The ex-Wales manager responded: "Yes."

Giggs was arrested on suspicion of assaulting Ms Greville, 38, following the incident at his home in Worsley, but today he denied the attack after "completely losing his self-control".

Mr Wright quizzed him about the prepared statement he gave to police the day after the incident, in which he said a "scuffle" broke out over Ms Greville's phone, and that his head clashed with hers accidentally.

Mr Wright said: "The reality is you headbutted her, didn't you?", to which Giggs replied: "No."

The prosecutor then said: "Because in this dispute with her, you had, by that stage, completely lost your self control."

The former footballer repeated: "No."

He also denied threatening to headbutt Ms Greville's youngster sister Emma in a drunken rage.

Giggs told the court he "didn't know" why he had put in his police statement: "On both occasions I was attacked."

And he agreed with Mr Wright that it was "an important assertion to be making".

The trial continues.
