Jamaican sprinter Usain Bolt is continuing to celebrate his success at the 2016 Rio Olympics by partying overseas amid rumors he cheated on his longtime girlfriend, Kasi Bennett. After hitting up a few clubs in Brazil following the Olympic games, the 30-year-old headed to London to spend a few days partying at different nightclubs.
According to People magazine, Bolt was spotted Monday night at Cirque le Soir nightclub before heading back to his hotel room to continue the party with a large group of women and some friends. The outlet also reported that he went out again Tuesday night hitting up London’s Tape nightclub. “He arrived around 1 in the morning and stayed until around 4:30 a.m.,” a source told the magazine. “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.”
The source said Bolt looked “really happy” and was in “really good spirits” the entire night. The athlete wasn’t photographed leaving the club with any women, but People reported that about seven to 10 girls were seen waiting for him back at the hotel he was staying at. “They all went back to his hotel room and stayed up there until the early hours, so it must have been a good party,” the source said.
Bolt’s latest night out in London comes after reports surfaced that he had cheated on Bennett with a 20-year-old Brazilian student named Jady Duarte. Last weekend, photos popped up online of Bolt getting really cozy with Duarte during his 30th birthday party. Initially, Duarte said her encounter with Bolt was “normal” but later told the Daily Mail that they had “passionate and hot” sex after leaving a nightclub together.
Despite the drama surrounding Bolt, his half-sister Christine Bolt-Hylton doesn’t think the alleged cheating will ruin his relationship with Bennett. Bolt-Hylton told the Daily Mail in an interview this week that she’s sure Bennett is used to photos surfacing of Bolt with other women. “People ask for pictures with him and he is always willing to have pictures,” she said. “She is used to him being in the public domain. I don’t think anything happened between him and the Brazilian girl. I’m looking at the pictures and it doesn’t look like he was doing anything with her.”
Bolt-Hylton also said she thinks the star athlete and Bennett will talk when he returns home and “work their difficulties out.” She explained: “Usain doesn’t believe in cheating. Normally when we speak he sees he is against stuff like that. He has never done this before as far as I know.”
