Thibaut Courtois will start the Champions League semi-final match between Real Madrid and Manchester City as a happily married man, but his love life has been rocky.
The 29-year-old is currently dating Israeli model Mishel Gerzig, whom she met in August. She is the most recent in a long list of women he has dated over the years, including the ex-girlfriend of one of his teammates and one of his neighbors, according to reports.
When Caroline Lijnen, Kevin de Bruyne’s then-girlfriend, revealed she’d had an affair with Courtois in 2014, he first made headlines for his performances in the bedroom, rather than on the pitch.
After De Bruyne had cheated on her with a close friend, Lijnen claimed she and Courtois had bunkered together two years ago. Chelsea had both of the Belgian internationals on its books at the time.
De Bruyne wаs described аs “devаstаted,” but he hаs continued to plаy аlongside Courtois since the incident wаs quickly forgotten. The shot stopper, on the other hаnd, fаiled to leаrn from his mistаkes.
