Frank Lampard buys flat for ex-fiancee's grandmother

Friday April 16, 2010

Chelsea footballer Frank Lampard has splashed out £300,000 on a Barcelona flat for his ex-fiancee's elderly granny.

The star - currently dating The One Show host Christine Bleakley - bought the three-bed apartment so his daughters, Luna, four, and two-year-old Isla can visit Teresa and other relatives in Spain.

The purchase initially caused fans to believe the sportsman was making a move from Chelsea to Barcelona.

"Fans needn't worry, it's not for him. It's for Elen's gran Teresa," a friend tells The Sun.

"It's a prime property right in the heart of the city, very near the Sagrada Familia church.

"Elen is very close to her grandmother, and regularly travels to Barcelona to see her there."
