Ronaldo exposed as a 'vain person' by ex-girlfriend
London, Nov 9 : Portuguese footballer Cristiano Ronaldo has been revealed as a vain person by his ex-girlfriend Nereida Gallardo.
Gallardo, 24, who had been dumped by Ronaldo via a text message after eight months, revealed that the Man U ace has an extreme beauty regime with which to keep his body hair-free.
"He likes his body to be smooth all over and would even use a hair removal cream. He would also use tubs of moisturiser, coating every part of his body, at least twice a day," News of the World quoted Gallardo as saying.
She also said that she had found out earlier on in their relationship that the only love in Ronaldo's life is himself.
"His house is full of mirrors so he's always walking around glancing at himself," she revealed.
Besides preening, the 23-year-old winger also liked to scrawl his initials and the number seven all over the place, even on doors, coffee tables, and mirrors, and he even loved looking at himself and playing with his hair.
"He has curly hair and liked me to use my hair straighteners to do it for him," she said.
The one thing that is still making Gallardo fume about is the way Ronaldo broke off with her
"He's a coward who couldn't end it face-to-face," she added.
