Former Miss Chile Camila Andrade has accused Arsenal star Alexis Sanchez of texting her behind his girlfriend's back.
Andrade, who won the coveted title back in 2013, has claimed that the £35 million man sent her holiday pictures from his winter break to Disneyland Paris. Sanchez enjoyed that holiday with current partner Laia Grassi, but Sanchez allegedly told Andrade that Grassi was a relative.
Despite Sanchez being a superstar in his native country, Andrade managed to turn down his advances after he invited her out for dinner just days before he left for Brazil to take part in the World Cup. Weeks later he was pictured enjoying a beach break with Grassi in Mexico.
"I was between boyfriends at the time and it was the first time that he'd asked if we could meet up"
The reports, which have been spread far and wide in Chile, Miss Andrade, 23, claimed in an spoke in detail how the exchange of messages with Sanchez came about.
Quoted in The Mail, she said: "Alexis invited me out for a meal while he was back in Chile preparing for the World Cup.

"I was between boyfriends at the time and it was the first time that he'd asked if we could meet up.
"I turned him down because he wasn't my type and I knew that many of the times he'd messaged me he was with his girlfriend and I liked that even less.
'When he was in Disneyland Paris with Laia in February he sent me a picture of himself on his own.
'I knew he was with her because I'd seen pictures in the paper and I really couldn't stop laughing.
"I messaged him to say: 'How nice, you're with your girlfriend, I've love to be where you are with my boyfriend' and he replied: 'No I'm with my little nephew or young cousin or some young relative', I can't remember exactly.
"He never said he was with his girlfriend and the following day there was a big picture in the paper of the two of them. It was very strange.
"All these starstruck young girls need to see all these footballers are the same and are not to be believed."
"I've no idea how he got my number but he did what a lot of footballers like him do which is to speak to girls via Whatsapp"
Andrade said she refused to believe the anonymous texter was Sanchez when he first got in contact. She is still at loggerheads as to how he got her number in the first place.
She continued: "I was with an ex-boyfriend when he sent his first message.
"I'd never met him in my life so when he said he was Alexis Sanchez, I replied saying: 'No, you're lying, you know what, Ciao.'
"He responded by phoning me straight away. I didn't answer him. I rejected the call.
"Why am I going to answer him if I don't know him? And then he sent me a message saying I phoned you so you'd know it was me.
"I've no idea how he got my number but he did what a lot of footballers like him do which is to speak to girls via Whatsapp."
The 25-year-old, who has enjoyed a stellar start to his Arsenal career since joining from Barcelona in the summer, was also forced to distance himself from claims that he had fathered an illegitimate child with Barcelona-based Mary Plaza, 28.
However, there have also been stories suggesting his relationship with Spanish art director and designer Laia is healthy. Reports from Chile suggested that Sanchez was unable to perform at the highest level against Manchester United because Laia had worn him out in the bedroom.
