Diego Maradona’s girlfriend has been criticised for wearing tiger fur to the draw for the 2018 World Cup. Rocio Olivia turned heads as she arrived at the Kremlin on Friday with her choice of outfit alongside the former Argentina striker, who was dressed in an all-black suit and yellow bow tie.
She provoked anger on social media with the knee-length garment.
One angry commentator wrote on Twitter afterwards: ‘How disgusting! Rocio Olivia with a fur coat on. She hasn’t got two brain cells to rub together.’
Another outraged anti-fur protestor added: ‘Rocio Olivia gets her advice from the devil.’
Rocio, who has had a turbulent on-off four-year relationship with her football legend lover since he dumped ex Veronica Ojeda, appeared to brush off the criticism with an Instagram post today.
The 26-year-old posted a picture of her on her privatised account in the fur coat with her 57-year-old partner, alongside a message which read: ‘Gala photo. For friends….for the rest???? Well, ask me.’
