London, June 4: Manchester United legend Ryan Giggs has been branded a coward by the father of his former mistress, Imogen Thomas, for failing to clear her of a blackmail allegation.
The footballer gagged the ‘Big Brother’ beauty with a super-injunction in a bid to prevent him being identified, and his lawyers portrayed her in court as a blackmailer who asked for cash from the star.
“Imogen has never been a planner or a plotter. It’s just not in her nature. She’s a party girl. She likes going out and getting drunk and nice meals. But she is definitely, 100 per cent, not a blackmailer,” the Sun quoted Charles Thomas as saying.
“It is wicked of him not to have made some statement to clear her name over the blackmail allegation made in court. His failure to do that makes him a gutless coward in my opinion.
“I don’t blame him for fancying my daughter. They’re both consenting adults. But I will never forgive him for not acting like a man and telling the world she did not blackmail him.
“He knows it’s completely false and if he had anything about him, he’d stand up and admit it,” he added. (ANI)
