Tottenham star Dele Alli has been the victim of a house robbery this week while at home with girlfriend, Ruby Mae, and several friends and family members.

The lives of football players are always closely followed by fans.

The biggest stars on the pitch are regularly the biggest stars off the pitch as well, with thousands following their social media accounts and following stories in media outlets.

A worrying trend that has surrounded football players for years, however, is that stars and their houses are often targeted for burglaries and robberies.

The latest player to fall victim to such a crime is Tottenham star Dele Alli.

It was reported on May 13th, 2020 that two assailants had broken into the Spurs midfielder’s home which was also occupied by his girlfriend, his brother, his brother’s partner and another friend.

Dele Alli’s home robbed

On the morning of Wednesday, May 13th, shortly after midnight.

It was reported by The Sun that two masked men broke into Dele Alli’s house, assaulted the Tottenham player and made off with expensive watches and jewellery.

In the house with the Tottenham star were his girlfriend, his brother, his brother’s partner and another friend.

It is understood that the occupants have been living together during the lockdown imposed by the COVID-19 outbreak.

Following the incident, Dele Alli took to Twitter to thank and reassure fans.

Who is Dele Alli’s girlfriend?

  • Dele’s girlfriend is 24-year-old model Ruby Mae.

The pair have been together on and off since since 2016.

Their relationship became truly public during the Euro 2016 tournament when Ruby Mae was seen consoling the Spurs and England star after the infamous defeat to Iceland.

In February 2019, the pair agreed to a split but remained in contact with each other and have since rekindled their relationship.
