- Cristiano Ronaldo's partner Georgina Rodriguez has been accused of abandoning her destitute sister
- Patricia Rodriguez claims she is struggling to make ends meet amid a turbulent relationship with Georgina
- This comes at a time when Ronaldo is facing a backlash of his own following his interview with Piers Morgan
Cristiano Ronaldo's name has been dragged into yet another controversy. Ronaldo has dominated headlines this week for an incendiary interview he did in which he attacked Manchester United.
And even before the embers of the fire he stoked during that interview cool down, his sister-in-law has now come out to claim that his partner Georgina Rodriguez has neglected her.
Georgina's sister, Patricia has claimed she is broke but does not receive any financial help from her sister. As Marca reports, Patricia has indicated she is going through a rough phase of life.
Patricia has also revealed she has been living as a squatter for three years.

"I am broke and my sister does not help me. What hurts me most are my children, not me," she said of the situation. "After all, with a piece of bread I can eat, but my children, who are her nephews."
Patricia added that she sometimes had enough to eat and other times did not.
"Sometimes I have enough to pay the rent, sometimes I don't. As a sister, I don't expect all this."
Ronaldo has been engaged to Georgina since 2016. Patricia has now sent an appeal to her brother-in-law and sister to help her, but also acknowledged they do not have any obligation to her.
According to Daily Mail, Patricia and Georgina share the same father but different mothers. Patricia failed to appear in Georgina's documentary I am Georgina, which was released by Netflix, a possible sign of the strained relationship between the two.

Sports Brief had earlier reported that Ronaldo's untimely interview appears to have bred some unwanted friction within Fernando Santos's squad.
Ronaldo is seemingly in the mood to crack a few jokes and throw a few jabs, but Cancelo is not having it. The visibly agitated defender then tries to get away from the five-time Ballon d'Or winner.
