Newly crowned Miss Bumbum, Erika Canela has claimed that Cristiano Ronaldo invited her for a round dinner while away om international duty with Portugal.
The bootilicious Brazilian model in a revealing interview with The Sun, insisted that the Portuguese hero wanted to see her during the break, and even revealed their conservation on instant messaging app, Whatsapp. Erika, who won the coveted pageant last November also confessed she was initially star-struck when Ronaldo contacted her while she was filming a reality TV show in Lisbon.
In 2013, The Sun reported that the 32-year-old had a fling with former Miss Bumbum, Andressa Urach which was part of the reasons for his break-up with Russian model, Irina Shayk who was furious after finding out that Ronaldo texted other women during the relationship.
Recalling her experience with the Real Madrid star, Erika said: “I’d heard about Andressa. Maybe he’s got a Miss BumBum fetish.
“I thought he’d be more interested in Barbie-type models. I never imagined he’d like a big-bottomed Brazilian woman like me.
“He did all the running. He said in one WhatsApp message, ‘Do you want to come to my house? I want to see you,’ and arranged the pick-up from my hotel in Lisbon.
“Everything seemed fine until I spoke to him from the car and he said that because I was late, he only had a quarter of an hour.
“I’m not a half-hour woman, let alone 15 minutes, so I hung up.
“I think a new meeting will be difficult.
“But if I hear he’s no longer dating and he doesn’t think I’m the sort of woman he can enjoy and move on from after 15 minutes, who knows what might happen?”
Cristiano Ronaldo was honoured at his hometown, Madeira during the international break and had the airport named after him.
