Model Claire ‘didn’t see split coming’

Thierry Henry’s wife has spoken out for the first time since splitting with the footballer.

Claire, 28, is devasted by the break-up and is reported to have been sobbing uncontrollably to pals.

‘I’m gutted – he broke my heart,’ she’s claimed to have told friends. ‘It was a complete shock and he’s ruined my life.

‘I’m trying to get on with things, but it’s very difficult.’

The couple’s 4-year marriage came to an end earlier this year. They have a 2-year-old daughter, Tea.

But the British model didn’t realise Thierry, 30, wanted out of the relationship.

‘I thought we were happy and I was in love with a great man,’ she revealed, reports the News Of The World.

‘I just didn’t see this coming. You don’t recover from this.’
