Usain Bolt party binges as his girlfriend shows #SelfControl on social media


Usain Bolt reportedly retired from the Olympics but that’s about it. Bolt jetted out of Rio earlier than expected when some photos and videos leaked of his 30th birthday celebration in which he made time with three different women. The reason for his early departure was unclear: was it because his “normal” date was the widow of a powerful drug lord or was it because he had a very supportive, long time girlfriend named Kasi Bennett in Jamaica? Since Kasi is still in Jamaica and Bolt is hitting the London club seen like a senior frat brother during pledge week, I think it might have been the former. As Bolt is photographed time and time again grinding with various women, Kasi remains a pillar of self-control on social media, throwing possible shade but generally rising above the whole situation.

Usain Bolt hit the London clubs again on Friday night.

The fastest man alive showed no signs of stopping as he hung with another group of beautiful women, dancing the night away until 5 a.m.

Photos show Bolt stopped by Mayfair’s Novikov restaurant Friday, before hitting some nightclubs in the West End. He and his female companions returned back his hotel later in the evening.

On Sunday after the Games’ closing ceremonies, Bolt was spotted out with up to three different women. He continued the party on Monday night in London, hitting up the Cirque le Soir nightclub until 5:45 a.m., before continuing the party back at his hotel.

Less that 24 hours later, he then repeated the same feat at Tape in London’s exclusive Mayfair district.

“He arrived around 1 in the morning and stayed until around 4:30 a.m.,” a source previously told PEOPLE of his time at Tape. ‘Everyone else in the club was asked to leave around 3:30 a.m., but Usain and a big group of ladies stayed in for a bit longer. They had the whole club to themselves for around an hour.”

“He just looked really happy. He was in really good spirits and just smiling all the time, having some fun with his friends, celebrating his victory,” the insider continued.

Later that night, Bolt brought up to 10 women back to his hotel room to continue the fun. “It must have been a good party,” the source said. “They were all in pretty good spirits. One even did his trademark Lightning Bolt sign outside the hotel!”

One person absent from the festivities was Bolt’s girlfriend Kasi Bennett. The 26-year-old fashionista – who notably live-tweeted her enthusiasm for Bolt’s wins – is apparently still home in Jamaica.

Some of you speculated, and I tend to agree, that we have no idea what his relationship with Kasi is like. There is a possibility that this was always their arrangement and that what is most bothersome is Kasi is being asked to answer for it. When people asked about her #SelfControl tweet, she responded that it was merely a Frank Ocean song she had been listening to at the time. I love the way Kasi is handling herself, she isn’t saying a thing and is letting her “likes” on Twitter do the talking for her. Selfishly, I am glad she is playing along for now because her Twitter is entertaining as hell:

So is Bolt cheating or is he just having a good time within a prearranged agreement? I honestly don’t know. I am surprised at his flagrance for a man in a committed relationship but maybe the jacket he wore Wednesday night said everything we need to know about him, “Tell me I can’t and I will.”

    If he’s doing what’s not in their “arrangement” then what a tool. After the news broke that he had a longtime girlfriend, I wondered why she wasn’t in Rio. Guess we know.

  2. Div says:

    I thought it was kind of weird that she was apparently only in Rio for two days and his mom kept saying that she wanted him to settle down (something that would be strange to say if he had a long term, steady girlfriend). Maybe they have an arrangement, are very on and off, or had a fight and broke up because who only goes for two days to Rio? I suppose it’s possible she dumped him after he was caught with that Brazilian girl and now he’s going crazy with other women.

    Who knows? It just seems awful blatant for someone in a committed relationship to repeatedly cheat in the open, especially those pictures from Rio with the widow, so I imagine she already broke up with him or something along those lines.

  3. als says:

    The assumption that they have an open relationship (the same assumption that was tossed around when rumors of Diane Kruger cheating on Joshua Jackson surfaced) is insulting for all the people that really are in respectful, open relationships.

    Whenever anyone publicly takes a piss on his GF or his BF everyone jumps at assuming they have an arrangement. An open relationships does not mean screwing everything that breathes and it doesn’t mean doing it in public, which is what ‘the fastest man alive’ is doing here.

    What Usain Bolt is doing here (and at the age of 30 not 18) is being a disgusting pig. Period. No excuse. And his girlfriend’s reactions and likes or whatever make it pretty clear.

    • Div says:

      I’m thinking she probably broke up with him after those pics with the widow surfaced and now he’s going crazy with other women. I can buy they had an open relationship for several reasons, but I think people forget that those in open relationships often have rules and it is cheating to break those rules.

    • littlemissnaughty says:

      How do you know what their agreement is? Maybe he just got a pass for the time being, maybe they’re on a break, maybe they broke up. But to say that there is a definition for an open relationship is a little far-fetched. People have all kinds of arrangements. Whatever he’s doing is not attractive to me but I’m not dating him so whatever, they’re adults.

      • als says:

        Could you please explain what kind of arrangement would include this kind of public humiliation for your partner?
        Maybe a hate and pettiness arrangement like the one Calvin Harris now has with Taylor Swift.

      • littlemissnaughty says:

        I said maybe they’re on a break. And it’s only public humiliation if they’re still your partner or if they don’t know what hit them. People are always so damn invested. If she thought they’re in a committed relationship, he’s an ass. But I had a friend who gave her bf carte blanche (and vice versa) during their semester abroad. There was no humiliation involved.

    • Artemis says:

      This idea that ‘open relationship’ means you can hook up with different people every day in public to open up speculation about your bonafide at home is ludicrious. There are rules in every type of relationship and the basis of any relationship should be trust. I’m not too sure that Usain is upholding this trust by acting like a horny teenager in public.

      For me this also shows that people have a distinct idea about relationships that aren’t exclusively monogamous. What Bolt is doing is plain disrespectful so if people think a lack of respect (see also Kruger and Jackson) is an aspect of open relationships, then I don’t think people are all that open to accepting these type of relationships.

      • Bridget says:

        With Kruger and Jackson, I wondered if the problem was her getting caught, not so much her hooking up with a co-star (though I also thought the relationship was over anyhow).

        We’re supposing that sexual fidelity is what these two’s (Usain and Kasi) relationship is built on. For all we know, she may be happy just being his main lady. But we’re also talking about a relationship built upon a fundamental power imbalance. Usain Bolt is the most famous man in Jamaica. For all we know it’s not an open relationship so much as he does what he wants and she wants to remain in the relationship so she takes it, which isn’t an open relationship so much as someone who’s accepted the fact that they can never expect fidelity.

    • detritus says:

      The one couple I know who is non-monogamous, they also respect each other GREATLY.

      If one was upset by whatever partner, or behaviours, the other was partaking in – it would stop.
      The rules work for them because if one expressed upset the other immediately resolves the issue. It is always the partner over the side-piece, no matter what.

      So I don’t see an open relationship here. She’s too upset/annoyed at his shenanigans, and he’s still going.

    He can’t out run DiCaprio!

  5. Size Does Matter says:

    I don’t get it. Being the Fastest Man Alive isn’t particularly a compliment when it comes to sex.

  6. Esmom says:

    I’m not making excuses for him but just throwing out a possible explanation. I’ve said here before that elite athletes tend to be somewhat stunted socially and emotionally from living such unbalanced lives for so many years. This seems like the perfect Exhibit A to illustrate what might happen when one of those athletes finally has a break after years and years of training and not much else.

  7. HH says:

    I couldn’t imagine having an open relationship in the public eye, especially as a woman, because the assumption is always that things aren’t in your favor.

  8. Karen says:

    I don’t know if it’s open or not. I hope if it’s open; it’s open to both of them. But the way he’s carrying on is just gross to me. It’s like he’s racing to break the world record in getting the most std in one summer.

  9. JenniferJustice says:

    Open relationship or not, broken up or not, you don’t blatantly shove your new hook-ups in the face of someone you claim/claimed to care about. That’s not what an open relationship is and it’s no mature way of handling a break-up. Dude is an amazing athlete. Dude is immature and/or emotionally stunted. No excuses.
