After a 25-year relationship, former Manchester United ace's wife Patrice Evra discovered he had a new girlfriend after posting photos of their family home on Instagram.
Sandra Evra, 39, who became a high school darling with Patrice, 39, after growing up together in Les Ulis, Paris, was left heartbroken in January after the footballer went to London to work.
Sandra told The Sun that she hadn't seen Patrice since January when he traveled from Paris to their second home in Battersea, London, on a 15-day work trip to file for divorce on March 4th.

The mother of two found out about his affair after Patrice's lover, 25-year-old Danish model Margaux Alexandra, posted photos of the family home on her Instagram.
Following the Instagram discovery, Sandra told the publication that his lawyer had called to say Patrice was getting a divorce. "He didn't even have the courage to tell me himself," she said.
Sandra said to The Sun, “That was the worst day of my life. I was devastated and distraught. I paid all of my credit cards and the Netflix bill. It took me a long time to realize what he is (…). He's turned into a rat. & # 39;
Despite a "wonderful" Christmas together and a "kiss and cuddle" Maldives New Year vacation, Patrice traveled two days after her return to Paris and didn't return her calls for "weeks," Sandra told the publication.

She now believes Patrice "knew what he was doing" by filing for divorce while she was in Paris when Sandra said she could have "fought for more money" had she been in England.

Sandra says she gave up her education, family and friends to follow Patrice to Monaco when he signed and settled for both of them at age 19 – she said she didn't work as he found the idea "embarrassing," said Sandra across from The Sun. .
In 2006 she followed him to Cheshire and settled in Alderley Edge, then in Hale, Manchester.
Sandra first discovered Patrice had been unfaithful in 2010, three years after they got married, when photos showed him kissing Danielle New Year's Eve at a Manchester hotel, Sandra said.
And in February 2013, he was accused of being unfaithful again with Playboy model Carla Howe.
Sandra says she suffered financial embarrassment after their breakup because her credit card was declined while paying for a meal and going to the grocery store.
The former couple shared bank accounts, with Sandra taking on the bookkeeping and investing in a property portfolio that includes three houses in Monaco, one in Cannes, Hale, Cheshire and a penthouse in Dubai, reports The Sun.
