SPRINT king Usain Bolt begged a British model for sexy pics two days before his long-term lover gave birth to their first child.
Olympic gold medallist Bolt, 33, asked Shari Halliday, 22, for the snaps — and was sent two of her wearing lingerie.
He replied saying: “You hot as, I swear. Love it.”
Glamour girl Shari claims she had no idea Bolt was in a relationship until last Sunday’s birth of his daughter was announced — by the Prime Minister of Jamaica.
Shari said: “I feel like he should concentrate on his own family and don’t understand what he gets from texting other girls.
“I was shocked when I found out he had become a dad as I did not know about his partner. I should do my research on people a bit more.”
Bolt and his partner of six years Kasi Bennett, 29, revealed in January that they were expecting a baby.
The Jamaican posted a picture of Kasi on a beach in a flowing red dress and cradling her baby bump.
But just two weeks later he was in the UK and trying to arrange a hotel tryst with Shari.
The pair exchanged several flirty texts, with Bolt calling Shari “sexy” and “babe” before Shari offered to travel to his hotel. He then went offline and Shari suspects he fell asleep.
Days after his WhatsApps to Shari, Bolt posted a romantic Valentine’s message to Kasi showing the pair holding hands while eating a meal.
Shari told The Sun on Sunday she first met Bolt last summer in London.
They were with mutual friends in the VIP area of Tape nightclub, when Bolt chatted her up.
Shari said: “We were at a table and he started talking to me and told me I was beautiful. We chatted and he was quite reserved but also self-confident. He did not tell me he was in a relationship.”
The pair swapped numbers and Shari told him she had to go home and would be ordering a car.
But she said Bolt cheekily grabbed her phone and told one of her pals she would have to come and get it from the nearby hotel where he was staying. One of his pal’s then took Shari in a car to the hotel — and up to Bolt’s suite.
Shari said: “I knew it was a joke and it was quite funny but I didn’t like the way I felt forced to go to his hotel. We kissed but I did not stay with him and went home after a while.”
The pair next saw each other at the same nightclub last October, where Shari said they had a drink and chatted. Shari said Bolt messaged her once over Christmas but she then did not hear from him again until February.
She said: “I was surprised and flattered I guess when he got in touch. He is such a big star and I didn’t expect him to hit me up.
“I was thinking, ‘Why me?’ I was disappointed when we didn’t meet up, but I was surprised by some of his messages — they were very blatant and forward.”
But it did not stop her getting in touch again during lockdown to say she had been thinking about him — still unaware he was in a relationship and expecting a baby.
Her message prompted him to ask her for the saucy snaps.
Shari learned a few days ago that Bolt had become a dad. She has dated footballers in the past and said Bolt is just like them.
She said: “The thing about these top athletes is they think they are the best in the world and are full of themselves.”
Bolt’s agent has been approached for comment.
