Five-time Ballon d’Or awards winner, Cristiano Ronaldo has been forced to file a restraining order against British broadcaster, journalist, writer, and television personality, Piers Morgan.
The Portuguese superstar claimed the journalist has been posing as his official spokesman on Twitter in court documents obtained by Paddy Power News.
The star player is asking that the court order the journalist to always stay at least 200 yards away from him. The documents reveal the journalist has bombarded the former Manchester United star with love letters, bouquets, and lewd images.
It comes after the journalist divulged details of what Cristiano Ronaldo ate for breakfast on Twitter.
“He prefers cheese, ham, fruit & low-fat yogurt for breakfast,” twittered the Morgan Piers.
After Ronaldo’s recent interview with the journalist which led to Ronaldo’s leaving Manchester United, however, Morgan misconstrued Ronaldo’s decision to be interviewed on his show as a declaration of the star’s undying love.
Ever since the interview, social media users have noticed the journalist’s transition from a journalist into a gushing 20-year-old Cristiano Ronaldo super-fan boy.
Ronaldo did not want to speak his mind to fans who have already turned against him saying he is a disrespectful man. So he wants the court to deal with the journalist respectfully.
Alarm bells started ringing for the star when Morgan asked if he could have his toenail clippings. But After several failed attempts to establish boundaries with the journalist, Ronaldo was left with little option but to ask for a restraining order.
“One night, Piers came into my home and replaced all the photos of Georgina and me with pictures of us posing together after our interview,” said Ronaldo.
Then he lifted his shirt to reveal a tattoo of my face close to his heart. But the final straw was when he told the internet community what I ate for breakfast.
“I don’t know why he did it. I’m not going to say that I’m looking better than him. Which is true.”
After Ronaldo’s $173m-per-season was announced, Piers tweeted an expletive-laden rant about how Lionel Messi would struggle to adapt to the Saudi club.
