Ryan Giggs' battles baldness from stress caused by slew of sex allegations

June 8, 2011 - London

Juggling football, his marriage to wife Stacey, being a dad to their two children - plus secret romps with Big Brother star Imogen Thomas and his brother's wife Natasha Giggs - took such a toll on Ryan Giggs that his hair began falling out, it has emerged.

The married soccer star blew a fortune on expensive lawyers in a failed bid to keep his adultery quiet - and another 30,000 pounds to stop his baldness.

And 14,000 pounds of the bill was for a laser gadget Giggs bought so he could treat himself.

The winger, 37, had already had treatment for hair loss, like his Manchester United team-mate Wayne Rooney.

The Welsh winger feared his regrown thatch was disappearing and this March he began new treatment. It included laser sessions at a clinic, special shampoos and lotions.

"Ryan's hair replacement treatment started in June 2009 and was going great," the Sun quoted a source as saying.

"But since February he's missed quite a few appointments and his hair noticeably thinned on top. We thought it was because he was busy with his football. Now it looks like he was busier off the pitch.

"He was told the thinning was due to missed appointments and stress," the source added.
