“It was like I met my best friend, the one to save me from my flirt tips marriage,” Greville said. “He’d say I was his soulmate. “
When Greville returned to Manchester, their relationship resumed
She described their early relationship as “like a love story from the movies” and believed that they were “passionately in love.”
Greville then told the police officer that Giggs had said he left his wife, Stacey, and they discussed starting a family. But she learnt that was not the case and when media reports surfaced of their affair in , Greville said that she received “nasty messages” from Stacey Giggs and the footballer’s daughter.
Greville said “red flags” started to appear when he would turn up unannounced at her apartment and if she didn’t answer he would send her “a load of abuse, ‘You’re f***ing somebody else, you’re a w****'” and threaten to complain to her boss at work.
Greville then moved to Abu Dhabi to try and stay away from Giggs but he continued messaging her, sometimes 30 times a day, and then came to Dubai to see her.
But in 2017 she first experienced aggression from Giggs when, she said, “he flipped” after being accused of cheating in the Dubai hotel room.
At various points Greville believed that Giggs was seeing other women and on more than one occasion received anonymous messages claiming that he was having affairs. “I didn’t even realise I was the ex-girlfriend,” she told the police officer.
.. he’d randomly send sexual messages or pictures.” She added: “He was completely using me for sex. He wouldn’t leave me alone.”
Following the laptop incident Greville said Giggs broke up with her at a Christmas party. “I left and he followed me down the road. [He said] ‘Let me just spend one more night with you, let’s say goodbye properly.’ I said absolutely not, so then he just told me to f*** off then.”
But in Giggs then resumed calling and messaging Greville, at one stage up to 50 times an hour, and they got back together.
“I ended up moving in with him,” Greville added. “During lockdown it was on another level – lots of put downs, lots of putting me down in front of people, take things out on me all the time, secretive with his phone.
“My dad got told he had cancer, and he didn’t even look up from his phone. He’d constantly tell me I was moody, and he’d tell me to leave. He’d always want sex at night but then he’d give me a tiny bit of affection and I’d cling onto that. “Then he’d buy me flowers. This went on for probably three months during lockdown. It was always like I was numb to all that.”
She says when Giggs became Wales manager, she then began to look at his iPad and found evidence of several affairs.
“The reality of what I found on that iPad was way worse than I could imagine,” Greville said. “There were eight women he was having affairs with, full-on relationships that had gone on constantly from 2014. It was literally all there in black and white.”
Greville told the police officer that Giggs did not force himself on her but “he was using sex to get to me
“There were messages to his friends calling me a “slag” and a “silly cow” and ‘I just need the bars to open now so I can go out and pull.'”
At the beginning of the police interview Greville said that she met Giggs in 2013 when working for a PR agency that was hired by a company owned by the footballer. Greville said that she and Giggs would talk about their unhappy marriages and they began to have an affair after she called to a hotel room he was staying in to have a shirt signed.
