During his time at Manchester United, Cristiano Ronaldo was not only a great player but also a ladies’ man. According to former masseuse Rod Thornley, Ronaldo once asked him for the phone numbers of two famous singers, Kimberly Wyatt and Dannii Minogue. But it wasn’t just any casual request. The Portuguese superstar was even willing to offer up his Porsche in exchange for the digits of these lovely ladies! It’s safe to say that Ronaldo’s charisma and charm were not just limited to the field but also extended to his personal life.
During a massage session with a Manchester United player, Thornley found himself watching the X Factor with his client. The player, curious about a certain contestant, asked who she was, to which Thornley revealed it was Dannii Minogue, sister of the famous Kylie Minogue. The player immediately asked for her number, and though Thornley felt it was not his place as a masseur to obtain it, he eventually found himself with the number only four or five days later. The player went on a few dates with Dannii, but nothing came of it in the end. Thornley’s connections seem to go beyond just the entertainment industry, as he also claimed to have been offered a Porsche at a reduced price in exchange for giving out a phone number. It turns out, being a man of many means has its perks.
The lure of a celebrity’s phone number can be too hard to resist for some people. This was the case for one man who was asked by a friend to get Kimberly Wyatt’s number from the Pussycat Dolls. However, the man wasn’t willing to do it for free anymore, as he felt he had already done enough for his friend without getting anything in return. But his friend had a tempting offer – the half-price sale of his Porsche convertible when he moved to Real Madrid. In the end, the man caved and got the number, and true to his word, his friend sold him the car at a discounted price. But the man’s savvy business sense didn’t end there, as he was able to sell the car the next day and turn a profit. It’s a prime example of how business negotiations can happen in unexpected places.
