Francois' girlfriend "upgrade"

2014-05-30 16:28


It's no secret that the Blue Bull scrum half is besotted with his model girlfriend Chelsea le Roux. And just one look at his Instagram account reveals how loved up these two are!

During a recent interview with YOU magazine, Francois and Chelsea revealed that they're on cloud nine and the rugby player even went on to add that's Chelsea's his "future wife". The couple, who've been dating for seven months, already have matching tattoos, pledge rings and talk about being soul mates.

While we love happy endings, a few eyebrows were raised about comments made by Francois during the interview. "Chelsea is way more beautiful than any of my previous girlfriends. I definitely made an upgrade," he said.

The comments have drawn criticism online, with people calling them "tasteless" and that Francois is missing a "sensitivity chip." You'll remember that Francois dated the late Reeva Steenkamp shortly before she began dating Oscar Pistorius.

While his name was initially linked to the case, with rumours that Francois messaged Reeva on the night of her death, causing herself and Oscar to have an argument. This theory has been disproved and Francois wasn't even called as a witness in the trial.

So, do you think the comments are out of line? Or is it just a case of a man in love?
