DER SPIEGEL Football Leaks Exclusive: Cristiano Ronaldo Rape Allegation
Like Donald Trump, Viktor Knavs is not just a hard-charging businessman with a penchant for real estate; he is also viciously litigious when it comes to the women in his life. They dated for a while, and in September , she told Viktor she was pregnant. This, Viktor said, was because the child was not his. A son was born in May , and three months later, Marija sued Viktor for child support.
Viktor continued to deny paternity—going into detail for the court about when he had sex with Marija and the rhythms of her menstrual cycle—prompting the court to order a blood test. The court record indicates that Viktor filed his appeal late—and lied brazenly and unconvincingly about the nature of the delay. Viktor has never acknowledged his son, Denis Cigelnjak, who is now He lives in a tiny apartment in Hrastnik, the town where his mother, who passed away several years ago, once worked at the glass factory.
She never married or had more children, and Denis says he has no memory of ever meeting his father. Viktor paid child support until the boy was 18 but never reached out. Periodically, Denis would hear stories about his father, but he said he was afraid to initiate contact and disturb the Knavs family. When I asked Melania about this over the phone, she denied that it was true. Please respect his privacy.
Everyone who remembers Melania from her youth in Slovenia recalls how striking she was. You look in those eyes and it was like looking in the eyes of an animal. Stane Jerko, the photographer credited with spotting Melania and producing her first real photo shoot back in , saw something similar. He had glimpsed her waiting for her friend after a fashion show in Ljubljana.
She was lanky and shy, with long hair and sparkling eyes. Jerko, who preferred to find his models in public places rather than through casting calls, had suggested she come by his studio. He could see she had a future in front of the camera. A couple of weeks later, she returned, and Jerko snapped a series of black-and-white photos of a year-old Melanija Knavs in some catalog clothes, barefoot in each image. Jerko asks, chuckling. Like her sister, Ines, her goal was to become a designer, and she applied to the school of architecture at the local university, successfully passing the notoriously difficult entrance exams.

In those years in Ljubljana, she was focused on school. Even after she met Jerko and began dabbling in modeling, she preferred to go home after work, to be with her equally quiet and reserved sister. After a shoot or a catwalk, she went home, not out. She was really happy with those two, three, four people she was with. Melania scoffs when I ask if she had had a breast augmentation. Those who remember Melania also say she seemed somehow on a plane above her peers, her gaze always focused on a point above and beyond them.
At an age when her classmates were pimply, casual high schoolers, Melania was always perfectly made up, recalls Sedej. Foundation, mascara, blush, lip gloss, all in just the right, subtle amount. But she was unsatisfied with his lack of seriousness. He was a good-looking, sporty year-old; she was a beautiful young woman who wanted something more than a hummingbird college romance. She wanted more. By —the year Melania won second place in a Slovenian Look of the Year modeling contest—she seemed to have outgrown not just Ljubljana but all of newly independent Slovenia.
The large media market of Yugoslavia—with some 24 million people—had been chopped up. Staying in her tiny new country of 2 million would mean the end of her modeling career. To have a shot at something bigger, at a real future in modeling, she had to move. Melania decamped to Milan after her first year of college, effectively dropping out. I mean, she's very proud of me," she says. Because I knew. Emma Stone and I—we stayed up until, like, six in the morning talking about it the other night. We both were just like, 'I just knew.
Like Stone, Lawrence became a superstar overnight, but that's not what bonds the two actresses. She cracks me up; she's so 'theater,'" she says. The two went out to dinner with Adele late last year, creating a new set of SquadGoals.

Adele and I are a bit harsher; Emma's never had a bad thought about anybody in her life. It's so weird; I don't like new people. But these two women—and Amy [ Schumer ]—they're really lovely. And they're so normal. I feel like I'm hanging out with my friends—my friends that don't give a f--k about what I do. Not to brag.
Diane politely threw it out, and then we're sitting at the dinner table with her family, like, 'We shouldn't be here. Lawrence has always been a girls' girl, as her Lenny letter about the gender wage gap proved last year. The piece was written in response to the Sony hack, which revealed Lawrence had earned substantially less than her male co-stars in 's American Hustle. Published just before The Hunger Games: Mockingjay — Part 2 hit theaters and smashed records , Lawrence's essay started a major discussion about equal pay.
It wasn't until they had a headline like, 'Even though she's a woman! I didn't know to be looking out for that," she says, joking, "How did I do it, getting a period once a month? But that's simply not true. And so we've fortunately proved that. Writing the letter "was scary," she admits. I completely agree when there are actors who say, 'Actors should stay out of politics. We're not politicians.

It's not smart, businesswise, to be opinionated. But then what's the point in having a voice at all if I'm not going to use it for what I truly believe in? Rather than apologize, she deemed the situation a "sex crime" and made people rethink the way such stories were handled. And I wasn't ashamed; I was enraged.

It's your body. And you can do whatever you want.

The Portuguese island is even home to a Ronaldo museum, with a larger-than-life statue of the idol located in front of it. The statue shows him in soccer shorts, his manhood absurdly exaggerated.
