Georgina Rodríguez’s sister is asked about the kind of help she asks for
We’ve seen this story before, many times. A wealthy celebrity’s relative goes on TV to ask for financial help. Also, he badmouths the famous as a kind of family revenge.
Now it’s up to Patricia Rodríguez, sister on the father’s side of the influencer Georgina Rodríguez, wife of the star of the Portuguese national team and former Manchester United Cristiano Ronaldo.
In an interview with the Spanish channel Telecinco’s ‘Socialité’ program, CR7’s sister-in-law said she lived in an overrun house and had no money to eat.
“I’m ruined and my sister won’t help me,” she lamented. “I can only eat a piece of bread, but my children, Georgina’s grandchildren… I didn’t expect that from her.”
According to Patrícia, the two have not seen each other for 10 years. Their father, Argentine Jorge Rodríguez, spent more than a decade in prison for involvement in drug trafficking and died in 2019.
This family drama contributed to the separation between the sisters. Georgina did not feature Patricia in the documentary series ‘Soy, Georgina’ (‘I, Georgina’), which is available on Netflix.
The resentful relative said she called her millionaire sister to ask for an autographed CR7 shirt for her son’s birthday. “Georgina criticized me, she said they were on vacation and wouldn’t disturb Cristiano.”
A ‘Socialité’ commentator, Aurelio Manzana, said that Cristiano Ronaldo’s wife was already willing to support her poor sister. “She offered to pay for her grandchildren’s schooling, their clothes,” she said.
“Patricia’s answer was: ‘No, give me 5,000 euros a month and I want to pay for everything myself'”.
This amount (equivalent to R$28,000) represents 5 minimum wages in Spain and is well above the monthly income of the Spanish population (2,038 euros).
It was evident that Patricia Rodríguez was not interested in any help from Georgina. She asks for a large sum of money to be spent as she pleases her.
Often the public is led to criticize artists accused of having abandoned relatives to their fate.
There are cases of inhumanity, of course, however, there are people willing to tarnish their family media image for financial reward.
Cases like this usually involve envy and ambition.
