Former Wimbledon champion Marion Bartoli claimed abusive relationship with ex-boyfriend
Former Wimbledon champion Marion Bartoli has claimed an abusive relationship with her ex-boyfriend started her dramatic weight loss which saw her go “close to death”. „Then I met again with my ex-boyfriend again in May 2014 and every day he told me I was fat. Every day. He would see a thin girl in the street and he would say to me: ‚Did you see how pretty and thin she is?‘ It didn’t help. “He was such a dickhead. I let someone destroy me and I didn’t think that was possible. I let him swallow me. “On that front, I learned a lot as well. Because of my personality, I accepted things that were unacceptable. I used to tell myself: ‚It is not a big deal, not a big deal‘, but it totally destroyed me. I can no longer live like that. It is true I had lost a lot of weight, I had a weakened immune system, I caught something in India that finished me. I was already extremely thin, not to say skinny, but I could not see it.
