Usain Bolt caught cheating on his girlfriend with the widow of a drug kingpin?

Jamaican sprinter Usain Bolt has won a historic nine Olympic gold medals, is an eleven-time World Champion and holds several world and Olympic records. He has solidly earned his title as the ‘Greatest Sprinter on all time’ and is known as Lighting Bolt. Usain went out on the town over the weekend to celebrate the three gold medals he won in Rio and his 30th birthday on Sunday. While at a local nightclub, Usain was videoed grinding with a girl while dancing, macking on another and apparently ended up in bed with a third young lady named Jady Duarte. Normally there would be no problem with that, except that Usain has a girlfriend of two years named Kasi Bennett, who was in Jamaica at the time. There is also the fact that Jady is (slightly NSFW, abduction/torment description) the widow of one of Brazil’s most dangerous drug lords, Douglas Donato Pereira, who was gunned down by police last March. Jady has two sons with Pereira.

Olympian Usain Bolt celebrated in a big way following the Rio Games over the weekend. The Jamaican sprinter, who has a girlfriend back home, reportedly got close to a Brazilian student named Jady Duarte after partying at a club in Barra de Tijuca.

Per the Daily Mail, Bolt — the most decorated Olympic sprinter in history — celebrated his 30th birthday with Duarte, 20, on Sunday, August 21. Photos of the two half-clothed and in bed were later published on several Brazilian websites.

In the pics, Bolt cuddles up to Duarte without a shirt on and kisses her on the cheek. Duarte allegedly shared the snapshots with her friends via WhatsApp before they went viral.

“It’s very negative. I never wanted to be famous, I’m dying of shame,” Duarte reportedly told local newspaper Extra, via DM. “It was not a big deal. It was normal,” she said of their hangout. “I’d rather not talk about it — in order not to complicate matters.”

Jady claimed she she didn’t know who Usain was when she first spoke to him at the club but she certainly did when she sent those photos out. Jady may be mortified but she clearly isn’t too worried about the pics since she had no problem discussing the situation further with the media. I have read a little of what Pereira, known by the nickname of Diná Terror, was accused of and it scares me to death, even if he is dead. It certainly makes one question what Jady meant by, “I’d rather not talk about it — in order not to complicate matters.” Usain was expected to attend the Closing Ceremonies but ended up leaving Rio a day earlier than planned, the same day these photos came out.

Kasi, for her part, is handing this very well on social media. Usain, whose sister said he was just about to pop the question, once revealed the reason he did not discuss his “First Lady” in public was because, “A lot of people will try to attack her, so I tell her to just take it easy and let’s make sure that you’re ready for this.” When the pictures of Usain and Jady went public, someone on Twitter noted how “hot” Kasi was, to which she demurely replied, “I wish there was no discovery, but thank you so much. That’s really sweet of you.” I am wondering now how much she knew at the time she wrote that. However, she also posted this on Sunday, taken from a photo of Kasi staring at her and Usain at the Jamaican trials. I think she’s got this handled:

Here are some of the photos Jady posted to WhatsApp:

    Shame on him for cheating

  2. paolanqar says:

    I am still deciding who disgusts me more between someone who cheats on their SO or a woman/man who pursues a man/woman who is not unattached.

    • tracking says:

      Clearly the person in the committed relationship merits the most disgust, but plenty of disgust to go around in that situation.

    • Aang says:

      How do we know she knew his relationship status? I wouldn’t know Usain Bolt if he sprinted past me, I definitely don’t follow his love life. And unless she forced him into bed at gun point, I am more disgusted with him.

      • Becky says:

        Exactly, sometimes the other person doesn’t know the relationship status of the person they’re hooking up with. The person with the gf/bf knows what they’re doing.

      • Dani says:

        A lot of times the person in the relationship also lies about their current relationships etc, so really, more shame on him.

      • La Ti Da says:

        It appears unlikely she knew his relationship status, unless he mentioned it himself. Put it this way, with all the Olympic hoopla going around this cheating scandal is the first time I’ve heard he had a girlfriend ( I’ll admit thats a bit anecdotal since I don’t follow his private life). Kasi’s name was only recently revealed though and she has been keeping out of the limelight.

      • MC2 says:

        Of course you wouldn’t know him if he sprinted past you- it would only be a blur and a gust of wind.

      • liz_bee says:

        He knew she was taking pics. He smiled for them. What did he think was going to happen? Maybe he doesn’t care what people think, but he had to know that was going to hurt his SO. Even if they’re in an open relationship, most people would assume that she hadn’t consented to him sleeping with another woman.

    • Naya says:

      I would think that unless the cheating SO mentally deficient (in which case, they are unable to grant any kind of consent and everybody sleeping with them, including the spouse, is a rapist) then the SO bears more of the blame.

      • Lucy says:

        This, Naya. It absolutely baffles me when people are like “yeah, ok, he cheated, but the other woman made him do it” or stupid sh*t like that. If the so called “other person” forced someone in a relationship to cheat on their SO with them, then we’re talking about something completely different and a lot more serious (rape).

    • paolanqar says:

      I was talking as in general daily life not specifically referred to Bolton exclusively.

    • Sea Dragon says:

      Maybe this will make it easier: the attached individual made a promise (implicitly and/or explicitly) to be loyal while the unattached did not. Both lack respect, boundaries and common decency and both are culpable but the individual with the S/O, imho, deserves the brunt of the blame.

      • paolanqar says:

        I was talking about disgust though, not blame.

      • Becky says:

        I don’t know about disgust unless I was personally involved in this situation.

        In my experience, the wronged partner may be angry or upset with their SO for cheating, but they blame the other woman/man. However they may feel disgust for both. Because they are emotionally attached to their partner it’s easier to project negative feelings onto the other person.

    • Pants says:

      In fairness, I know who Usain Bolt is, but I had no idea he had a girlfriend until I heard that he cheated on her. It’s not entirely unbelievable that the girl might not have known.

    • HH says:

      @La Ti Da – Exactly. I didn’t know his relationship status until the other day. So, it’s quite possible she didn’t know.

    • PrinDeezNutz says:

      100% Truth!

  3. Locke Lamora says:

    I mean, are we really surprised? I bet 90% of the athletes who were there cheated.

    • Naya says:

      Tbh I’m not surprised. Not that its her job to police his genitals but I’m surprised that she didnt travel with him.

    • Emily says:

      I just can’t get too upset about this kind of thing. Disclaimer: it’s horrible to cheat on someone. But, I could never date an athlete/any famous person in their prime because why wouldn’t they cheat? Someone on the level of Usain Bolt at the Summer Olympics has people throwing themselves at them all day, every day. I guess other people have much higher self-esteem than me.

    • QQ says:

      Not at all, if anything i wonder where are all the pics of everyone else??! cause .. really Athletes Villa Shenanigans is what I’m here for?, Our Basketball Team??? I mean …. those guys are my prime targets for f*ckery

    • supposedtobeworking says:

      I moved my comment…

  4. Nicole says:

    Ugh they are both gross. Him for cheating (apparently this is not the first time) and her for texting out those tacky photos for some media attention.
    Kasi you in danger girl. Run.

  5. GraceCB says:

    The dailymail article is…insane.

  6. detritus says:

    I went to see if there were more flattering photos of Jady. She makes that face EVERY time.
    And her fashion/makeup choices are… Not good.

    The CB photos are probably the most flattering.

    Bolt is an idiot.

    • Taiss says:

      Men don’t cheat because of facial beauty. But bolt is disgusting for this.
      These atlete “wives” stay through so much cheating, they think this behavior is normal.

      • detritus says:

        Oh I definitely agree that attractiveness doesn’t really factor much in to cheating.
        It isn’t about the person they cheat with, its about the person who does the cheating.
        Plus I think there is a lot of proof that most people actually cheat down in looks.

        Bolt’s an idiot and IMO coward for cheating , regardless of who it is with.

        I really hope most athletes aren’t like this.

      • Ange says:

        So true Taiss. I used to work around a lot of elite athletes and they were always dogging around, a few made a play for me. I’m an entirely average looking person who was more often than not running around in sports gear with no makeup on. They just like the ego boost it gives them.

  7. jeanpierre says:

    Did he ever aknowledge Kasi in any way? Cause I have the impression that she been claiming him publicly and now he sort of sending her a message, athlete fboy style, you know?

    • Brittney B. says:

      He calls her his First Lady and she attends his big races in Jamaica; the pic she posted was cropped from a shot of them together at a race. So… yeah. He acknowledged her.

  8. QueenB says:

    why would they both take pictures like that? i mean if she wants to show off it makes sense but why is he posing in them, too? even if he was single it does not make sense.

    • greenmonster says:

      I think we don’t need to look for sense in things some people do. Remember last week, when people were asking “But why would Ryan Lochte lie about what happened? THAT DOESN’T MAKE SENSE!” Sometimes people are stupid and showoffs and arrogant and.. uhm…stupid.

      • als says:

        You are absolutely right.
        I just wish I could remember it more often. Many times, situations that appear complicated have very simple explanations.

    • Azurea says:

      Because with social media it’s an over-the-top narcissistic culture which spawns idiotic behaviour, especially with those who’ve grown up in it.

  9. Wren33 says:

    I feel so old. The trend of Snapwhatsapping pics of yourself in bed with your famous one night stand is soooooo tacky.

    • Becky says:

      Seconded, tacky as hell

    • Sixer says:

      I KNOW!

      It’s all dispiriting and yawn-yawn-yet-another-famous-man-fails-to-keep-his-trousers-up if you actually think about it.

      But if you just stick to superficiality, it’s hilarious to an old gal like me. You can’t even cheat offline these days.

      I suppose we at least have new ways of showing up cockwombles being cockwombles.

      • LAK says:

        I wonder if this is true at all given dance hall culture. The man was in London yesterday grinding on more ladies and took a few more back to his room. Pics on the DM.

        It’s a situation where i want to see NFSW pics/video before believing it because bumping and grinding on people is not cheating…..unless it leads to somthing, but often does not.

        And Bolt parties like this after every major meet. Lots of pics of him on social media spanning lots of years.

      • Sixer says:

        I think it was the being in bed photos wot did for it, LAK?

        But you’ve got a point. You’ve reminded me about an article on MediaDiversified I read about the police banning a bar from playing bashment cos… Mary Whitehouse or somesuch middle England horror. Hang on, I’ll find it…

        There you go.

      • LAK says:

        Those are the most chaste bedroom pics i’ve ever seen and Bolt is fully aware he is being photographed.

        I’ve seen more explicit grinding up a wall at carnival in broad day light.

        And by grinding i mean dancing in a way that simulates s-e-x without actually going there.

        That article makes a point at the end about Carnival where you see policemen dancing to the same music they are banning at the bar……

  10. byland says:

    Umm . . . at least it’s a drug kingpin’s widow and not one’s current wife? He’s an idiot for cheating, clearly, but at least he was smart enough not to put his life and the lives of the people he cares about in danger of retaliation.

    His poor girlfriend, though, having her life splashed across the tabloids, both paper and digital.

  11. saltandpepper says:

    So Bolt sprinted back to the UK in record time before the closing ceremony he was supposed to attend and The Swimmer left his teammates dangling? Don’t care how many gold medals they have won, or how proud they’ve made their respective countries, their behavior is shameful. So The Swimmer lost all his sponsorships, while The Sprinter cheated on his girlfriend with three women, one of whom is a druglord’s widow aged twenty with two kids? This is upsetting, of course The Swimmer’s behavior has far-reaching consequences, but Bolt bolting from Rio like that after posing happily for WhatsApp pics in bed? Too bad, so sad.

    • Locke Lamora says:

      Well, at least Bolt f-ed up his personal life only. Ryan got himself, other swimmers, the IOC and the country of Brazil in a major incident.

    • Annie says:

      Not the same at all. Ryan lied about a crime that didn’t take place. That in itself is a crime. He created an international incident. He had police looking for two suspects that didn’t exist. He gave them a description. He fabricated an entire story and left his team mates hanging. All because he vandalized a gas station.

      Whatever Bolt did, it has nothing to do with the Olympics and it concerns him and his gf only. Two very different cases. Also, he’s from Jamaica, not the UK.

      • saltandpepper says:

        @Annie Not comparing the two incidents, just mentioned both of them in my comment. Know he’s from Jamaica, but he bolted to the UK before the closing ceremony. Two very different incidents, two very different circumstances, two very similar levels of disgust. Bolt is supposed to be a hero to many underprivileged kids across the world, especially. Is this the behavior of a hero? Rhetorical.

  12. Margo S. says:

    Maybe they have an open relationship? Like when he’s on the road she doesn’t mind if he cheats. It’s not uncommon and considering how out in the open he was, I think it’s probably the case.

    • Snowflake says:

      I think so too. She would have to be pretty naive to think he’s been faithful. I don’t get a one woman vibe from him. Shame she is publicly embarrassed now. He was stupid to take pictures with his one night stand, what was he thinking?

    • FingerBinger says:

      This. Bolt obviously wasn’t worried about it if he’s posing for photos.

    • supposedtobeworking says:

      If he was willing to have his picture taken with this hook-up, I have to wonder if there isn’t an agreement between Bolt and his girlfriend. Otherwise, why would he risk it? Some girls will tolerate a lot for the perks.

      When I was in Jamaica a few years ago, I spoke to quite a few local ladies, and asked about the culture and island life. They had similar stories – blended families, fathers who were in and out of their mom’s lives, with other women in between. They accepted their mixed family of siblings, and didn’t seem to hold the same view of nuclear family we do in north America. Two of them had fathers who married their mothers twice, and three had siblings born within a few months of them. I wonder if there is a different level of expectation of behaviour within relationships that we are judging from our own expectation?

  13. Kate says:

    Eek that’s bad. But, really, are we surprised? Athletes are elevated to god-like status. It’s no wonder they think they can behave badly and be excused.

  14. MinnFinn says:

    I wonder if he will lose any sponsorships over this.

    • OrigialTessa says:

      He’s not married. He’s fine. He’s more famous and powerful than ever right now. No sponsor is going to drop him over this. No way.

    • als says:

      Sponsors don’t drop athletes for proven doping or rape scandals, I can’t imagine they would be bothered by this ‘detail’.
      I heard about Speedo dropping Lochte but they are one of the very few exceptions and I think it has more to do with the fact that Lochte did not perform very well at the Olympics, rather than his behavior.

  15. Bek says:

    Amazing athlete! I think people expect athletes to be perfect, his not married and woman are throwing themselves at him, i doubt his girlfriend is surprised by any of this.

    • greenmonster says:

      I’m not even really referring to Bolt here, but does it really matter if someone is married? Why is it that people say “Oh, but they’re not married”? Is a marriage so important? I mean, if a couple would be together for ten years, but isn’t married because they don’t believe in marriage – is their relationship worth less than a marriage of two years?

      To Bolt: as his girlfriend I would expect him to be monogamous (unless they have an different agreement). It doesn’t matter if women are throwing themselves at him. He should respect his relationship. The “women are throwing themselves at him” excuse is so old. A man is not a victim of his sexual desires, he can say no.

      • JenniferJustice says:

        Agree with everything you said. Men aren’t hapless victims. He and any other “cheater” are making conscious decisions. He’s just as selfish as a married person doing the same thing. And, expecting faithfulness is not expecting perfection.

      • Snowflake says:

        That’s your view. Some people are OK with their significant other being with someone else. Do you think all these famous guys are faithful? No, But sometimes the women accept it. As long as their the main chick, they’re OK with side pieces. I think that’s the case with bolt and his girlfriend. She gets the title and perks and he can cheat. but, I think he f@cked it up by being so indiscreet. She’s not gonna tolerate that.

  16. Lama Bean says:

    We are trying to apply our standards of relationships on others. She may not care. We just don’t know.

    The chick who cheated with him was trying to get her minutes of fame.

  17. Naddie says:

    What can we expect from a spoiled athlete and an insta girl anyway. One thing is investing in sports, other is treating these people like kings.
    People saying he lost his girlfriend, but I don’t even think he cares.

  18. Cheryl says:

    So, are any of you women from Jamaica or have close ties to the country? When we go to visit friends there (in the cities and countryside, not like typical tourists) I have been told by native Jamaician women that monogamy is not always the norm in relationships or marriages. Not being native from there, I don’t want to say anything incorrect. But I think there is a machismo-like cultural experience in Jamaica where men often go outside the marriage or relationships, and it’s often not unexpected and is tolerated by the women. I can imagine if you’re one of the most famous men from the country, that is just magnified. This is probably not news to his ‘first lady’ and she may view this differently than we do from the states.

  19. Talia says:

    That’s how you celebrate your Olympic glory 101.
