If you're wondering why Usain Bolt has been cheating on his girlfriend with such reckless abandon lately, there's good news. He already explained before the Olympics.
In an interview with The Telegraph, an English newspaper, Bolt talked about his love life and why he won't be settling down anytime soon, despite the fact he has a girlfriend.
You get famous, there's so much pressure of girls wanting you. And for you to get married at 21, you have not lived one bit. It's hard for you to stay with one woman because girls are literally just throwing themselves at you; and then you have the girls that the tabloids encourage pretty much to try to get with you. And that's unfair to us guys – it's hard to say no, you know what I mean? So I've learnt from you guys.
By "you guys," Bolt was referring to British media and culture, which he says push the idea of monogamy.
Jamaican culture, however, is different, Bolt says. He explained,
We're laid-back. We dance, we live our lives, we have our fun. And then when we get older, then it's time to settle down and have a family. I want to get married. Because my parents are married. I've thought about it, but I know I'm not going to get married before 35, for sure.
Usain Bolt's recent spree of public flings with different women is both unsurprising and confusing.
Let's be real, no one is unfamiliar with the idea athletes are playboys; never mind superstars who are celebrating their birthdays, retirements and winnings of gold medals all at once like Bolt is.
But at the same time, the timing of all these pictures of the Bolt with random women popping up is ironic. The internet had just caught on to who his girlfriend is and began celebrating their "relationship."
Plus, it's worth noting even some athletes who have been caught cheating by the media have had to be, you know, caught. Bolt on the other hand is knowingly taking pictures with different women.
And it's looks like it's all because he is transparent about the way he moves. Don't hate the player, hate the game. I guess.
