Scorned fiancee traps star’s mistress
ENGLISH Premier League Saido Berahino's fiancee called off their wedding in an explosive Valentine's Day row outside his mansion.
Dramatic photos show Stephania Christoforou, 26, on the warpath after the Stoke City striker, 24, smuggled glamour girl Chelsea Lovelace, 28, through his door, The Sun reports.
Christoforou, who is staying with her parents after a series of bust-ups, arrived in her slippers moments later and began hammering on the door roaring: "Open the door you f***ing slag!"
Berahino, exposed by The Sun previously for sleeping with an escort, had flown American model Lovelace into Britain after spending two days with her in Dubai.
The Sun understands the pair began messaging each other on social media in November just weeks after he was filmed serenading Christoforou at an engagement party in Birmingham.
On Valentine's Day after touching down at Manchester airport, Berahino went to training while Lovelace was chauffeur-driven to his $1.8 million pad to await his return.
She is believed to have spent three hours cowering inside while Christoforou circled the house shouting four-letter tirades.
Christoforou, who manages a cocktail bar and sushi restaurant, looked as if she had just got out of bed.
And there was no sign of the emerald cut diamond ring Berahino gave her when he proposed.
Later, a woman believed to be the player's sister showed up on the scene in an effort to bring calm to the situation.
But the drama only escalated further as Christoforou yelled at her in full view of neighbours.
The public meltdown came weeks after The Sun revealed the former England Under-21 star bedded a $9000-a-night sex worker at the same address while Christoforou was away.
Cypriot-born Christoforou was devastated to learn he turned a bedside photo of her face down after leading the escort into the bedroom they share.
She forgave the star on this occasion but after rumbling his fling with Lovelace she finally ditched him.
Last night she had deleted the "engaged" status on her Facebook page and told friends her relationship with the star was over. A source said: "Knowing Steph, she will find it hard to ever get over this. It's horrible what Saido has done to her because she could do so much better.
"At the same time it's nothing new. She knew right from the start how he was. He's a dog!"
Former golden boy Berahino has been ridiculed as the Premier League's biggest flop since joining Stoke from West Brom for $21 million in January 2017.
Despite his $90,000-a-week pay packet he has not found the net since February 2016. New Stoke boss Paul Lambert, whose club is locked in a fierce relegation battle, will be dismayed to learn off-field distractions are plaguing his striker.
The Sun understands he and Florida-based Christoforou began messaging each other after he spotted her photos on Instagram.
Christoforou says her modelling work includes music videos, promotional events and work for an online clothing store.
Her social media includes hundreds of photos in skimpy lingerie and swimwear. In one promo video she writhes around a red-lit bedroom caressing herself to a moody R&B soundtrack.
In a magazine Q&A she says: "I love for a man to pursue me. I'm a daddy's girl so you have to put in initial work for me to take you serious."
Earlier this week she jetted off to Dubai after he paid for her flights.
Sources said the striker has showered her with expensive gifts including Chanel and Yves Saint Laurent handbags. But Berahino was not the only one keeping tabs on Lovelace's social media.
Christoforou was watching her like a hawk too after a tip-off from a pal.
When Lovelace posted videos from Dubai this week, while Berahino was mysteriously out of town, Christoforou quickly cottoned on.
She swooped on his pad immediately after he arrived home hoping to catch them in the act. Our source said: "When Steph has confronted him in the past about his cheating he just denies it and brushes it off. Then he goes back to doing the same thing again. He lies and lies to her.
"Saido just loves getting attention from girls, mainly models. Money and fame has gone to his head and he's become so cocky."
Christoforou refused to comment.
