Jack Grealish’s girlfriend Sasha Attwood is “stunned” over allegations that the England player has been secretly dating Emily Atack for six weeks.
The footballer’s 25-year-old sweatheart reportedly only learned of Jack’s encounters with Emily after England’s 5-0 World Cup win against Albania on Friday.
It’s clear that Sasha, 26-year-old Jack, was cheering during the match with Jordan Pickford’s wife Megan Davison before he heard the heartbreaking news.
Heartbreaking: Jack Grealish’s girlfriend Sasha Attwood is reportedly ‘devastated’ over allegations the England player has been secretly dating Emily Atack for six weeks
Jack is now seemingly faced with a big decision: whether to dump his 10-year-old girlfriend Sasha for Emily after falling “in love” with her.
The Mail On Sunday revealed this weekend that Emily has become fond of England’s first £100million footballer but thought he was single when she was introduced to him by another English player a few weeks ago.
Emily, who has had a number of secret dates with the sportsman, told friends that she had also seen him on the celebrity dating app Raya and assumed he was no longer in a relationship with Sasha.
One told The Mail on Sunday: “Jack’s in love with Emily…she likes him very much too – of course she wouldn’t have met him otherwise.”

They continued: “She also thought he was single – that’s what you expect when you see someone on a site looking for a girlfriend.
“Emily has really enjoyed his company lately, but she’s definitely not going to hang out if he stays with his girlfriend.
“If he wants to, she’ll be happy to move on with her life. It’s up to him now.’
MailOnline has reached out to Jack and Emily’s representatives for comment.

Yesterday, while Jack was out of the spotlight in the England team’s bubble at The Grove Hotel in Hertfordshire, Sasha is said to be ‘devastated’ after learning he’d met Emily, both at her North London home and the five-star hotel. Lowry Hotel in Manchester.
Sasha had cheered Jack on in his match against Albania with Pickford’s wife and had enjoyed a “girls day party” earlier Friday at London’s Corinthia Hotel.
The couple posted images to Instagram of themselves eating brunch, drinking hot chocolate and enjoying the spa facilities.
However, Sasha was found to be in hiding after she failed to return to Corinthia with Megan, the newspaper reported.

Sasha, who attended St. Peter’s Roman Catholic High School in Solihull with Jack, is very close to the footballer’s family, especially his 18-year-old sister Hollie, who has cerebral palsy.
She also joined Jack’s mother Karen when he signed his record-breaking contract with Manchester City at the Etihad Stadium in August.
Meanwhile, Emily — who was in Paris when the story came out — smiled yesterday as she took her dog, a King Charles cavalier named Penny, for a walk near her home.
The Inbetweeners star was previously in a relationship with former One Direction singer Harry Styles and ex-Big Brother heartbeat Ziggy Lichman.
When she appeared on I’m A Celebrity alongside Harry Redknapp, who later won, she asked him if his son, footballer turned expert, Jamie, wanted to go out with her after the show.

A friend of Emily told The Sun about her communication with the England player: ‘Emily watched Jack during the European Championship and thought he was fit.
And for his part, Jack has been a fan of hers since she played Charlotte ‘Big Jugs’ Hinchcliffe in The Inbetweeners.
“They started DMing on Instagram before switching numbers and then passing it on to WhatsApp and FaceTime. Jack calls her almost every day and has been quite open about it.
“They’ve become really good buddies, his FaceTiming loads and he’s like a little puppy dog around her. It’s very sweet. They can really laugh together.’
