Friday 19 August 2022 11:28 PM Ryan Giggs' domestic assault trial hears yet more cringeworthy texts with his ... trends now

Ryan Giggs gushed to his ex-girlfriend that it 'blows his mind' how her name rhymes with his 'bestie' Gary Neville - and his favourite toastie maker - telling her: 'It's these things that make us so special'. 

The toe-curling message was one of hundreds sent by the ex-Manchester United footballer, 48, to Kate Greville, 37, during their 'toxic' six-year relationship. 

They are being read out at his domestic assault trial at Manchester Crown Court, where Giggs is accused of using controlling and coercive behaviour and of assaulting Ms Greville. He denies all charges. 

The cringe-worthy message reads: 'It blows my mind that your surname is Greville. It rhymes with Neville, who is one of my besties, and Breville, which is my favourite toastie maker... it's these things that make us so special.' 

The court previously heard how Giggs once danced on a chair with former Man United teammate Neville during a boozy Christmas party, according to chairman of his football club Karen Baird. 

The jury also heard on Friday how loved-up Giggs messaged Ms Greville saying: 'You are the jam in my doughnut, the truffle in my pasta and the salt in my tequila.'

He also compared her to Fort Knox, 'because it's full of gold'.

In another exchange, Giggs told Ms Greville he had made 'scrambled eggs a la chef Giggsy' for breakfast, and messaged his former flame saying: 'I think you're fandabidozi'. 

Giggs also wrote an acrostic poem using the first letters of Ms Greville's surname, including 'Gorgeous' for 'G', 'Vivacious' for 'V' and 'Everything I've Ever Wanted' for 'E'.

The ex girlfriend of Ryan Giggs (pictured arriving at Manchester Crown Court today) penned a 'final goodbye' letter for the former footballer in which she accused him of being a 'liar and a cheat', a court today heard

IN FULL: Kate Greville's 'final goodbye' letter aimed at Ryan Giggs, read out in court

'I know pretty much everything you've doing with other women behind my back since the day I met you.

'My gut has always told me that you couldn't be trusted and that you're a compulsive liar and serial cheat. I really did love you. I wanted to believe the things you told me but I know now that the same things you say to me, you say to multiple women.

'At least these other women have husbands, kids, boyfriends or go on to have them. I'm not so special. I stayed loyal and committed to you no matter what and what have I got for it? Nothing at all.

'I think you underestimated my ability to find things out. For five years I haven't really wanted to know the truth. Since Xmas there were so many things that didn't add up. It was a case of me putting my head in the sand.

'You're probably surprised that I didn't find out sooner.

'You and Helen were in a full on proper relationship while you were sleeping with me the whole time. You stayed with her in the Stafford.

'You paid for her to fly with you to Barcelona. You told her that you loved her, wanted to marry her and have kids. You're in constant contact with her even now. You and Zara were also in a full-on relationship for a year. I could go on but I think that's enough.

'Stacy and so many other people knew about it. You got your guy from Harrods to send her shoes, bags, and dresses. I know about Natalie and Susie. All going on when you were with me. Kelly and Zara.

'You met a woman at the Stafford that you confused me for. I know you were sending messages about sex and threesomes with Charlotte from Hotel Football while you were sleeping with me and Helen.

'When I asked you, you denied the whole thing. You paid for her to stay at the Stafford too.

'I know about the women you meet at the Stafford when you're there.

'I know all about Steff. She's married to that cricketer now. I know that you had a full blown affair with her in 2014. You were having sex with her while you were seeing me.

'Let's not forget about XXX (name redacted). It gives me smug smile every time I see her.

'I haven't bought these things up to your face because you would just tell me lies. I know for a fact all of the above is true. You know it. You'd make me feel wrong for questioning you.

'You'll never lie or cheat on me again. I have Mac (the dog). I want to keep him. He's as much mine as he's yours. If you want to fight me for him, that's your prerogative.

'After everything you've put me through, I deserve to have something good from this relationship. But you don't agree.

'This email account has been deleted from the moment I sent this. I blocked you on everything and so have my friends and family. I no longer have the apartment on King Street. If you want to contact me, here are the details for my lawyer.

'I'm sad that you could never be honest with me about everything. I will probably never properly come to terms with the fact that my life with you over six years is a lie. You are constantly telling me you want me to be here but we girls can always feel in our gut when guys are lying and cheating.

'I still believe that you love Helen but you cheated on her with me and Zara. If you want to be happy with someone don't lie and don't cheat.

'Goodbye. I can't see anything changing with you. Goodbye Ryan, it has been extremely emotional.'

Giggs also signed off one text to the PR executive referring to himself as 'Giggsy' - a nickname commonly used throughout his football career - and told her 'reiterate is a big word for this time of day' during an early morning texting session. 

Meanwhile, Ms Greville wrote her own explicit poetry to the ex-Premier League star, including one message which read: 'I'm counting down the days, I'm thinking of all the ways. I'm going to make that gorgeous c*** of yours raise.' 

Aside from racy missives, it was also revealed Friday that she had penned a 'final goodbye' letter to Giggs, accusing him of being a 'liar and a cheat' and listed off the woman she believed he was sleeping with.

Ms Greville wrote the scathing message after allegedly finding proof on the former Manchester United star's iPad that he had been unfaithful with eight other women during their relationship.

Among the women mentioned in the letter was an employee of Giggs' Hotel Football - which he co-owns with ex-teammates Neville and Paul Scholes - who she claimed he was messaging about having a 'threesome' with.

Ms Greville also accused the former Wales midfielder of having sex with someone who is 'married to that cricketer now' and charming another woman by getting his 'guy at Harrods to send shoes, bags and dresses'.

The court heard Ms Greville never sent Giggs the letter, which was penned on October 29 2020 - three days before he allegedly assaulted her. 

Instead she sent it to a friend, who responded: 'Better than watching Jeremy Kyle that'. 

In the letter, read out in court during Giggs' domestic assault trial - in which he is accused of 'headbutting' Ms Greville during a row at his £1.7million Manchester mansion in November 2020 - the PR executive writes: 'My gut has always told me that you couldn't be trusted and that you're a compulsive liar and serial cheat. I really did love you. 

'I wanted to believe the things you told me but I know now that the same things you say to me, you say to multiple women.

'At least these other women have husbands, kids, boyfriends or go on to have them. I'm not so special. 

'I stayed loyal and committed to you no matter what and what have I got for it? Nothing at all.

'I think you underestimated my ability to find things out. For five years I haven't really wanted to know the truth. 

'Since Xmas there were so many things that didn't add up. It was a case of me putting my head in the sand. You're probably surprised that I didn't find out sooner.'

Ms Greville then mentions several women by name, including one woman, Helen, who she claims Giggs was in a 'full on proper relationship with' while sleeping with her.

She claims Giggs was in a relationship with another woman, named as Zara, 'for a year'. She adds: 'I know about Natalie and Susie. All going on when you were with me. Kelly and Zara.'

'You met a woman at the Stafford that you confused me for. 

'I know you were sending messages about sex and threesomes with Charlotte while you were sleeping with me and Helen.

'When I asked you, you denied the whole thing. You paid for her to stay at the Stafford too. I know all about Steff.

'She's married to that cricketer now. I know that you had a full blown affair with her in 2014. You were having sex with her while you were seeing me.

'Let's not forget about XXX (name redacted). It gives me smug smile every time I see her.'

Ms Greville finishes her letter, saying: 'Goodbye. I can't see anything changing with you. Goodbye Ryan, it has been extremely emotional.'

The dramatic letter followed more than an hour and a half of lawyers reading out gushing love messages. 

They had initially read them out saying 'kiss, kiss' at the end of each text. 

But Judge Hilary Manley eventually intervened, saying: 'Sorry to interrupt but we probably don't need the kiss, kiss, kiss'.

Giggs bragged about OBE in sex chat 

A further half-page of messages were recorded by defence barrister Marianne Alton:

Giggs: 'Alright you're the boss.'

Ms Greville: 'Girlboss.'

Giggs: 'I don't mean it, I'm the boss.'

Ms Greville: 'I don't mind Mr Giggs.'

Giggs: 'OBE, don't forget.'

Ms Greville: 'Kate's boyfriend don't forget, ultimate accolade. #Bossman, I love you.'

Giggs: 'I'm the boss in bed.'

Ms Greville: 'I'm the boss. I love you superstar bossman.'

Today, Sir Alex Ferguson appeared as a witness for Giggs' defence case, and told how he never saw him get 'angry or aggressive'.

The legendary ex-football boss, 80, who managed Giggs throughout the vast majority of his career, said he would give the Welsh midfielder the 'sharp end of my tongue' when he was upset at his team's performance.

But the tough-talking Scottish manager insisted 'I knew he could take it'. Speaking from the witness box in Giggs' domestic assault trial, he also praised his former player's temperament as 'wonderful'.

The barristers, who are acting as Giggs and Ms Greville as they read out the exchanges, laughed and both agreed.

Judge Manley also intervened when one of the lawyers began reading out a message from Ms Greville to Giggs, which read: 'I love, I love you, I love you, I love you, I love you.'

Judge Manley said: 'I think 'I love you repeated' would do.' She said: 'We need to keep the gravity of this situation.'

The court heard how in February 2020, Giggs messaged Katie Harvey, who his then-partner was with.

Ms Harvey told Giggs that Ms Greville had broken her phone.

He thanked Ms Harvey for being so 'kind' to him, and said: 'I know I can be a pest.'

Ms Greville (pictured) has told the court she returned to the UK from the Middle East thinking she would be in a relationship with Giggs, but he instead became more distant

Sir Alex Ferguson takes the stand to back Ryan Giggs

Sir Alex Ferguson today told the court how he would make an example out of Ryan Giggs in the Manchester United dressing room, but insisted that he never saw him get 'angry or aggressive'.

Sir Alex, who appeared as a character witness for Giggs, described him as having a 'fantastic, wonderful temperament'  and someone who never got 'angry or aggressive' despite playing top level football under him. 

He told the court that he had known him since the age of 13 and found him to be one of the best-behaved players he has ever worked with, both on and off the pitch.

Sir Alex said: 'When I first met him he was at a local team and training at Manchester City's ground. We were working hard to get him to come to Clifton (Manchester United's training ground).

'He came to us with his father on one occasion and after that we started visiting his house to convince him to come to Manchester United.'

He continued: 'Our main contact was Ryan's mother. She was very good about it all. Ryan was a quiet boy, he just sat there and listened to what his mother was saying.'

Sir Alex took him personally under his wing after he broke into the first team at the age of 17.

Sir Alex said: 'He was being compared to George Best. There was a lot of press and media attention on him. I saw him every day, I was his manager. The boy was great, he was no problem.

'As he got older he had a wonderful temperament. In the dressing room, I used Ryan as an example a lot. I would lose my temper over performances. Sometimes he got the sharp end of my tongue. But I knew he could take it, he was strong enough.

'Everyone in the dressing room would think, if Ryan Giggs can take it, we all can take it.' When asked by Gigg's lawyer if he ever saw Giggs angry or aggressive, Sir Alex replied: 'No.'

When asked to describe his temperament, Sir Alex replied: 'Fantastic, wonderful temperament. To have a career as long as he did, in terms of energy and attitude he was the best. 

'He was the best example that I had. Everyone looked at Ryan as the number one.'

She replied: 'You are, but you love her.'

Yesterday, on day nine of the trial, lawyers read out a cringeworthy poem from Giggs to Ms Greville and shared messages in which he made grandiose proclamations of his love during the course of their rocky relationship. 

In one particularly explicit poem, read out in court as part of the former footballer's domestic assault trial, with Giggs's 66-year-old mother Lynn present, the former Wales midfielder wrote to the PR executive: 'My darling Kate, Unequivocally our love was fate. 

'I fell in love with you at first sight. I remember cos I was as high as a kite. Those beautiful eyes made me shiver. I'm not going to lie I think of you I dream of you. Can't help thinking pulling you was my greatest ever coup.

'That stomach, those abs, those pictures you send so I can keep tabs.  You make me feel funny down there. Especially when you're there and you look up and stare.

'I am beginning to think you are always right. That's ok 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 as hard as a totem pole.'

Manchester Crown Court heard the father of two sent the poem on August 31, 2017 – the day the coercive control is alleged to have started. 

It was sent in response to a poem from Ms Greville in which she wrote: 'You make my heart flutter because you are a nutter. Every day you do me proud not just because you are well endowed.'

The court also heard how, during their 'toxic' six-year on-and-off relationship, Giggs wrote several texts making strong declarations of love.

In one, the ex-football star, who made 632 appearances in England's top division, wrote: 'I love you to the next planet those clever f****** at Nasa finds. Plus all my Premier League appearances, which is a lot. Love you baby.'

In a series of more toned-down texts, Giggs also described Ms Greville as 'my sunshine, my wish, my soulmate, my strength, my one and only'.

In the WhatsApp messages, Miss Greville referred to the former Wales manager as 'Giggsy-baby', while Giggs called her 'baby cakes'.

Giggs – who earlier this week told the jury he and his girlfriend had even rowed about how to stack their dishwasher – added: 'You're a painting, supermodel, thoroughbred, an absolute dream...'

In one message, in June 2017, Miss Greville talked about the couple getting old together and 'still laughing' when they were 70.

In another, he claimed the 'best place in the world' was not 'in Bali or the Caribbean' or 'playing golf with my mates' but in bed, with Miss Greville snuggled in the 'little crevice under my chin... legs interlinked'. She replied: 'That's my favourite place in the world.' 

It comes after the court yesterday heard Giggs attempted to make himself out as the 'victim' after allegedly attacking his former girlfriend and her sister during a row at his £1.7million mansion.

The ex-Premier League star is accused of assaulting Ms Greville - who claims Giggs 'deliberately' headbutted her - during the incident at his home in November 2020.

He is also accused of assaulting Ms Greville's sister Emma - who was dog sitting on the night of the incident and who claims Giggs elbowed her after she tried to intervene.

Giggs denies the charges, as well as using controlling and coercive behaviour towards Kate during their 'toxic' six-year on-and-off relationship, and is currently on trial at Manchester Crown Court.

The ex-footballer this morning faced a second day of cross-examination from prosecutor Peter Wright QC, who probed Giggs on his statement to the police the day after his alleged assault on ex, Ms Greville.

Giggs laughed when asked by his barrister Chris Daw QC if he knew what the word impetuous meant. Giggs replied: 'I'm not too sure.' He had been asked if he was impetuous by prosecutor Peter Wright QC the previous day.

Mr Wright accused Giggs of lying to police over allegations he 'flipped' and headbutted his ex-girlfriend during an argument at his £1.7million home in Worsley, Manchester, on November 1, 2020, when she learned he had been cheating with at least eight women. 

The prosecutor asked Giggs about discrepancies between a prepared statement he gave to police the day after his arrest and live evidence heard in a 999 call made by Miss Greville's sister, Emma, and on bodycam footage captured by officers sent to investigate the alleged assault.

Mr Wright questioned why, when Emma, 26, called police, and Giggs heard her telling the operator about the alleged headbutt, he did not say it was 'rubbish' or an 'accident' as he later claimed. 'I don't know,' Giggs said.

Mr Wright yesterday asked the former Wales midfielder why he had put in his statement to police that:  'On both occasions I was attacked.' Speaking from the witness box, Giggs responded: 'I don't know'.

Mr Wright said: 'It is because you had at this stage lost all sense of reason and you were seeking to turn the narrative of what happened into one in which you were the victim?' Giggs said: 'No.'

One poem in which Giggs told Ms Greville: 'You are my soul... you makes me as hard as a totem pole,' was read out before the court

She said in another they will 'continue to have the most incredible, intense and hot sex every day
