On Wednesday, just a few days of after photos of Usain Bolt and a Brazilian girl took the internet by storm, the fastest man in the world took his girlfriend, Kasi Bennett, to the most expensive and exclusive jewelry store in Jamaica. The reason for the visit to the jewelry store was to pick up a stunning 24-carat diamond ring worth $10 million.
The ring is not necessarily an apology for Usain’s behavior at his 30th birthday celebration or shortly after, as Bolt’s sister had mention a week earlier that the track star was planning to propose to his girlfriend.
Kasi, 25, was dazzled and Bolt, 30, beamed, according to employees at the jewelry store. “They looked very happy together,” says the jeweler, Ragga. “When they left, Usain and Kasi were holding hands.”
The treble treble Olympian is suspected of cheating on Kasi after photos of him getting cozy in bed with another woman went viral online.
The Instagram post that Bennett reportedly liked had a side-by-side image of her and Duarte with the caption: “When you girl is Selfridges, and you cheat on her with Primark.”
Bennett also made her point clear about the cheating scandal by reportedly liking a tweet from a disappointed fan, which read: “@usainbolt you traded your life with a #goddess @kasi__b for a one night fling with someone who will never even come close. I can’t.”
While Bennett has not spoken out about the controversy and the affect it might have on her relationship with Bolt, the 30-year-old athlete’s sister Christine Bolt-Hylton is confident that the couple won’t split.
Christine said that Bennett and Bolt will be together as they are a solid couple and so in love, the Daily Mail reported.
“I’m sure Kasi will be used to it by now. She is used to seeing pictures like this,” Christine reportedly said. “People ask for pictures with him and he is always willing to have pictures. She is used to him being in the public domain.
“I don’t think anything happened between him and the Brazilian girl,’ Christine added about the controversial pictures. “I’m looking at the pictures and it doesn’t look like he was doing anything with her.”
When asked if Bennett will be upset about the whole scandal, Christine, who is Bolt’s half-sister, said: “The pictures are of a young girl. I know she will be upset. But she will talk to him and I know they can work their difficulties out.
“Usain doesn’t believe in cheating. Normally when we speak he sees he is against stuff like that. He has never done this before as far as I know,” she added. “When he was much younger he was popular with the girls but from when they have been together he hasn’t done anything like that.”
According to reports, the woman with whom Bolt had the cozy pictures is a mother-of-two and an alleged widow of drug kingpin Douglas Donato Pereira, also known as Diná Terror.
