Diego Maradona: Great player, girlfriend beater (allegedly)

This story is everywhere so here it goes, I've got the lawyers on speed-dial. Maradona's girlfriend was filming him watching TV, which would be really annoying. Instead of telling her to stop like a normal human, he decided to walk over and hit her... allegedly.


There is the couple during happier times, before she had the sheer audacity to look at a phone. Before the outrage brigade get annoyed, that's sarcasm. You should know how Fitba works by now.



According to Maradona -

'I sent the phone flying but I swear I've never hit a woman. The story starts and finishes there. 'I admit I knocked the phone out of Rocio's hands but there's nothing more to it. The situation didn't continue.' 

In the video, Rocio says things like "stop hitting". Which is usually what you say when someone is hitting you. Hitting could be Argentinean slang for "being a dick", I don't know, I'm not a doctor. If it goes to court, it will be his word against hers, which will be a tough match-up. Maradona is a God in Argentina. He could probably be filmed using a midget as a an offensive weapon, swinging the midget around baseball bat style to assault other midgets and he would be given a new car or something to say thanks for the 86 World Cup.

Whatever happens, I hope justice is served. Remember kids, being really, really good at sport doesn't mean you can be a scumbag, just look at Ched Evans. The OJ Simpson days are over.  Ched was convicted so we are safe with that one right?
