Deli Alli has officially split from girlfriend Ruby Mae – after a two-and-a-half-year romance. The Tottenham Hotspur footballer, 22 – started dating the lingerie model back in 2016 – but the pair decided to call it quits three weeks ago.
According to reports, their break-up was ‘amicable’, with both feeling ‘quite sad’ about it.
The former couple have kept their relationship largely under wraps, barely posting pictures of each other on social media. But Ruby was on hand to cheer her now-ex and his England teammates on last summer, heading to the World Cup in Russia.
Side note: It’s still coming home, guys. And, despite the team getting knocked out earlier than planned, she later gave us all a glimpse into their loved-up trip to Ibiza, to recuperate in the sunshine. Dele has a lot to get his mind off their split, as he races to regain his fitness with Spurs, following a painful hamstring injury earlier in the season.
The footballer recently jetted out to Dubai in a bid to work on his fitness. And if that doesn’t help to distract him, he can always play a nice calm game of Fortnite… In a recent interview, the midfield star revealed he once got so angry after losing a game that he smashed up his home.
On second thoughts, maybe not… ‘I smashed a picture on my wall the other day,’ he admitted. ‘It was like a newspaper thing from one of the games I had when I scored a goal against Chelsea.
‘I feel bad now because it was a really nice gesture from the guy. It was on my wall opposite where I was playing and I chucked my controller at it and it smashed.
‘I don’t usually get angry… but it’s annoying when you’re playing Fortnite and the same thing keeps happening, then you can get angry.’ Someone keep Dele away from the computer…
