The Paris St-Germain forward Jese Rodriguez is said to have organised the eliminationof his former girlfriend's from a Spanish reality television show.
The former Real Madrid star, who spent last season on loan at Premier League side Stoke City spent about €5,000 in text messages to achieve his aim.
Jese and his ex-girlfriend Aurah Ruiz split up earlier this year in the public space which led to the lady taking the football star to court where she accused him of neglecting his duties as a father.
She claimed he failed her and their son in the "worst moment of our lives". She also claimed their son lacks clothes to wear and food to eat while he "spends money on friends".
The 25-year-old was said to have taken revenge on Aurah Ruiz when the Spanish model appeared on Spain's Big Brother VIP show.
Numerous media outlets cite a report in Cazamariposas that claims Jese spent €5,000 on texting votes to remove Ruiz from the reality show.
The couple's young son Nyan was born prematurely in June 2017, and has reportedly suffered serious health problems.
At the time of the split Jese said in a statement: "Through this communique I want to let you know that unfortunately my relationship with Aurah has finished. I prefer to do this publicly in order to avoid speculation.
"I want to ask respect for her, my children, family and me personally, since we have had very difficult and delicate moments for our son Nyan, who, thank God, after his recent operation, is in the recovery phase, where he progresses favourably and we hope that very soon he will leave hospital .
"I wish that both Aura and I and my children can live a happy and calm life. "
"Firstly you get rid of the only place I had to rest and then (you get rid of) the only company that could bring me food to the hospital ," added the model.
