“My arrival in Madrid was horrible," she said. “I was looking at a lot of cheap flats, which cost around £250-a-month and ended up in a flat that had been a storage room. It was freezing cold in winter and baking hot in summer. My life changed the day I met Cristiano Ronaldo.”

When did Rodriguez meet Ronaldo?

As reported by Sportskeeda, Rodriguez met Ronaldo during his Real Madrid days. The lovers first set their sights on each other in 2016 at a Gucci store in Madrid, where she worked as a sales assistant.

Why Ronaldo hasn't married Georgina

According to Marca, Ronaldo's mother, Delores Aveiro is the stumbling block in the 37-year-old's wedding with Rodriguez.

Per the Spanish media outlet, some members of the Portuguese star's family believe she is dating the Al-Nassr star for financial gain.

The report further states the family have strongly kicked up against any marriage talks between the two celebrities.

Ronaldo and Georgina's sour relationship

The relationship between ex-Manchester United superstar, Ronaldo and his girlfriend, Rodriguez has reportedly hit rock bottom.

According to Marca, the couple are trying to smooth out their relationship on social media, despite their issues behind closed doors.

The publication further claims their relationship is existing solely because it is beneficial to both their careers and statuses as celebrities.

Sports Brief also reported on Ronaldo gradually settling into life in Riyadh, the capital city of Saudi Arabia, following his departure from Europe and a lucrative move to the Middle East.

The 38-year-old is still struggling for form on the pitch, but his family are not struggling for fun and luxury in the desert nation.

His partner, Rodriguez has been spending time visiting different places, with her recent visit to the desert with their children seeing them enjoy soaking in the warmth of the region.
