A student who apparently spent the night with Olympic legend Usain Bolt who in a 2-year relationship, Usain celebrated his 30th birthday and caught up with the girl who has shared photos of the encounter and said it ‘normal’. The intimate photos show the star curled with the student at 7am local time.
Speaking to local newspaper Extra, Duarte said that Bolt sent security over to get her attention. She said she hadn’t realized that she was with a famous athlete and described their nocturnal encounter as ‘normal’ and ‘not a big deal’.
‘He sent a security call me, talk quickly. But at the time did not even know it was him, because they were like many Jamaicans,’ she said. ‘It was not a big deal. It was normal.’
Among the photos of Duarte with Bolt was a picture of a 100 Euro note – but she said: ‘No way, he did not pay me anything. I received no money.’ Duarte, a student from Rio, told Extra that she is upset about the publicity she has received since the pictures emerged, adding: ‘It’s very negative. I never wanted to be famous, I’m dying of shame.’
Jady Duarte, 20, shared WhatsApp pictures that seem to show her kissing and cuddling with the sprint king Bolt – who has a long-term girlfriend. In one of the photos which first appeared on several Brazilian websites including El Globo after Duarte shared them with friends Bolt seems to give Duarte a kiss on the cheek while she looks into the camera.
Duarte wasn’t the only woman to catch Bolt’s eye on Saturday night – a video posted to Twitter showed him twerking enthusiastically with another local girl during his evening out. He sang and danced just hours after earning three Olympic gold medals. Bolt thus completed a triple triple, as he also won the 100 meters, the 200 meters and the 4×100-meter relay in 2008 in Beijing and 2012 in London.
Meanwhile his sister had just revealed that Bolt had a long-term girlfriend – 26-year-old Kasi Bennett. Bolt and Bennett have been dating for more than two years and were likely to get engaged soon, according to Christine Bolt-Hylton.
But Bennett shared a cryptic tweet on Sunday. Someone commented on the world ‘discovering’ Bolt’s girlfriend, saying Bennett was ‘hot’. Bennett replied: ‘I wish there was no discovery, but thank you so much. That’s really sweet of you.’ Bolt made an early exit from Rio Sunday night – departing a day earlier than planned and missing the Closing Ceremony entirely.
