Brenda Patea, a 27-year-old German model, dated Alexander Zverev for less than 12 months. Further, they are awaiting the arrival of their baby now.
The Australian Open sixth seed has suggested in recent interviews that he and Patea will work out a co-parenting situation, although they have broken up.
Alexander Zverev’s pregnant ex-girlfriend has refused the claims made by him. She denied the claim he made that their baby is ‘the highlight of his life’ – She also said she hasn’t spoken to him in months.
Statements by Patea against her former boyfriend Zverev
”Highlight of his life’? ‘He is pleased’? ‘Greatest place’? I hardly think so – because we have no contact!’ she wrote this in German during a question-and-answer session on her Instagram page.
She said she was ‘fed up’ with how Zverev was portraying the pregnancy in the media- telling him to be ‘honest one day’.
Patea said in October that she has no plans to share custody of her child with Zeverv.
Furthermore, she also accused Zverev of being dishonest in interviews about the baby, when it was asked to him, that whether Patea has been sharing updates about the child with him.
The model spoke about the pregnancy in October and indicated that she intended to raise the baby on her own.
“I’m expecting a child from Alex,” Patea told German tabloid Bild.
Adding to that she also said, “We don’t have any communication with Alex right now, and frankly, I don’t plan to share custody of my child with him … but I will do everything to ensure that (the child grows) up in a harmonious and proper environment. I have the chance to raise my child alone.”
Moreover, Zverev is preparing to face Novak Djokovic in a quarter-final showdown at the Australian Open on Tuesday night.
The towering German has hit his stride with three successive straight-sets victories, against Serb Dusan Lajovic.
