The sister of Ronaldo WAG Georgina Rodriguez has taken to Spanish TV to tell how she has been broke and living as a squatter for the past three years.
In a phone call to the Spanish TV programme Socialite on 13th November, Patricia Rodriguez accused her sister of failing to help her when she fell on hard times.
She told the programme: “I’m broke and my sister doesn’t help me. What hurts me the most are my children, not me.
“After all, I can get by on a piece of bread, but my children, who are her nephews and nieces…
“I wasn’t expecting this from my sister. Sometimes I have enough to eat, other times I don’t… Sometimes I have enough to pay the rent, other times I don’t…”
Patricia, 33, and Georgina, 28, have long had a fraught relationship, but it reportedly worsened after their father died three years ago.
Patricia claimed she “still didn’t have his ashes” because of her sister.
In a desperate plea, she said: “Georgina, I need help, you’re my sister.
“I know you have no obligation or responsibility, but as you are supportive of and so good with others, at least be so with your nephews and nieces.
“If you don’t want to help me, help your nephews and nieces.”
Georgina failed to mention Patricia in the documentary about her life, Yo Georgina (I Am Georgina), released on Netflix in January.
In the documentary, Georgina – who was born in Argentina but grew up in Spain – spoke of her friends, children, and her other sister, Ivana.
The two share the same father, Jorge Eduardo Rodriguez, but Patricia was born to his former partner, who also fails to appear in the documentary.
After her mother passed away when she was just 11, she went to live with her father, Georgina, and Ivana.
She said in one of her first media interviews some years ago: “I’ve always felt apart from her.
“They immediately put me in a boarding school in Jaca while my sisters were cared for by some girls.”
She added: “I asked for a signed Cristiano shirt for my son. She told me she didn’t want to bother him, that he was on holiday.”
Georgina Rodriguez has 39.2 million followers on Instagram.
It is not clear how many children Patricia has, as the Spanish word ‘sobrinos’ can mean ‘nephews and nieces’, ‘nephews and niece’, ‘nephew and nieces’, or ‘nephews’.
