Footballer Jesé Rodríguez has proposed to his influencer girlfriend, despite having previously taken her to court for harassment.
The 28-year-old former Real Madrid player popped the question to his on-and-off girlfriend Aurah Ruiz during a recent getaway in Dubai.
Taking to Instagram, he shared a number of photos of the romantic moment, writing: “Yeeeesssss I doooooooo.
“Those words have been the answer to the question I’ve most thought about in my life.”
He added: “I really wanted to shout to the world that the love of my life wants to be beside me, for ever, and we won’t be just ‘her or I’ but will very soon be ‘Us.’”
Ruiz, 32, also confirmed the news on social media with the following message: “I really don’t have words to express what I really feel.
“And you know very well what it is and that’s the only thing that matters. I love you.”
The news arrives several months after scandalous reports claimed that Ruiz - who shares a four-year-old son with Rodríguez - had run over the ex-Stoke forward following an argument.
However, the former Big Brother Spain contestant categorically denied the claims, telling The Sun: "I’ve not run anyone over. It’s a lie and very serious.
“I’m not going to allow people to say I’ve run my partner over.
“I know a lot of things have happened between us that we’re not proud of but we love each other and I never wanted to run him over.
“I know I lose my head sometimes but this!!! How am I going to do something to the father of my child!! Are we all mad!!"
Rodríguez chimed in to say the reports were ‘fake news’, while his current club Las Palmas also confirmed he’d not been involved in an accident and had been training as normal.
Prior to this, the couple made headlines when Rodríguez accused Ruiz of harassment after she claimed he had neglected his duties as a father, and a settlement was reached in 2020.
Ruiz was told she must complete nine days of community service.
Later that year, PSG terminated Rodríguez’s contract following a sex scandal over claims he’d cheated on Ruiz with her friend and fellow model Rocio Amar.
He was also accused of ignoring social distancing rules and not wearing a mask at a party in Gran Canaria in November 2020.
Some believe the footballer’s recent Instagram post announcing the engagement references some of the struggles the pair have faced over the years.
“I could write many more things but I would prefer it if we experience them together and in the future we can write a book where we recount how true love is capable of beating everything and everyone,” Rodríguez said.
“Love always wins. I love you, I adore you my treasure. Forever together.”
