Usain Bolt girlfriend Kasi Bennet is missing in action during his 30th birthday on Sunday, which sparked speculation that the couple had split.
Bennet was not around when the Jamaican sprinter celebrated his birthday at Rio de Janeiro’s Barro da Tijuca neighborhood. Instead of having a good time with his girlfriend, Bolt was seen hanging out and twerking with another woman.
The two were captured in a video. The woman, who appears to be in her 20s, was seen making her moves on Usain. Watch video here.
Just a few days ago, Bolt revealed that he has been in a relationship with Bennet for two years now. He even described her as being a “special person” in his life. In April, the couple was photographed getting intimate during a parade in New Kingston. In an Instagram post, Bolt hinted about their relationship and referred to Bennet as his “First Lady”.
Bennet has been Bolt’s number one supporter and has been cheering for him in Rio. She consistently shared success photos of his famous boyfriend on social media. When Bolt won his first 100m gold medal in Rio, she cheered for him.

Bolt then took his 200m gold, and Bennet also shared his victory. She then tweeted “Track immortality” when Bolt won his ninth Olympic gold medal after his triple-triple win at Rio Games’ men’s 4x100m relay on Friday.

Bolt admitted he had mixed feelings about retiring but also stressed that he would not compete at Tokyo Olympics in 2020. “I’ve proven to the world I’m the greatest. I can’t prove anything else,” Bolt was quoted saying.
The Jamaican sprinter is expected to retire after the Rio Olmpics and settle down with Bennet. Bolt’s sister earlier revealed that the sprinting superstar will marry his Jamaican girlfriend after the Rio Olympics.
Bolt first won his three Olympic golds in Beijing in 2008. In Rio, he also won a total of three more golds, which cemented his place in the history of athletics. Only Paavo Nurmi of Finland and USA’s Carl Lewis can match Bolt’s total of nine in track and field, and no sprinter has ever done what he has done, Fortune magazine noted.
