Rhodri – who shares two sons with Natasha – also said he discovered many of his footballer friends were ‘at it’ with his ex and even claimed one them fled a bar in Portugal instead of facing him.
Speaking in a clip from James English’s Anything Goes podcast, Rhodri said: ‘I went out with one of their girlfriends when I was in their crowd so I know what both sides do, so they were all at it.’
He continued: ‘Just a bad thing to happen so I’m just going all guns blazing now. I could name ten footballers that she’d been with.’

Rhodri also claimed one of the footballers in question fled a bar in Portugal instead of coming face-to-face with him.
He said: ‘After it all happened I went to Portugal and I’m with two naughty lads, and as I walked into the bar one of the guys is stood right behind the door with his mate.
‘I’ve walked to the bar, and as I’ve walked to the bar and turned, all I’ve seen is the door shutting.’
MailOnline has contacted representatives for Natasha Lever for comment.

A source told MailOnline: ‘Rhodri believes it is time to speak his truth. This is likely to end any slim chance there might be of Rhodri and Ryan ever speaking again.
‘His claims are going to send shockwaves through the footy world and leave many players with some very difficult questions to answer from their WAG partners.’
Natasha has previously been linked to football stars Dwight Yorke, Danny Simpson. and Phil Bardsley, yet she insisted her high profile flings came before she met then-husband Rhodri.
She told The News Of The World in 2011: ‘I was with Dwight Yorke once many years ago, again before I knew Rhodri. And then there were the times when Rhodri and I were on a break.
‘That was when I was briefly with Danny Simpson. Then again I had a short fling with Phil Bardsley before he had a girlfriend.
‘It makes me sound like a monster, but my friends and family know the truth.
‘Yes, I know other footballers. It’s not that I go out hunting down footballers, they are just people I know. Yes, I might be at a club with someone, that’s just the way we are. My family have got to read that and it’s not nice.’
Natasha, who is mum to 14-year-old Louis and 19-year-old Liam, concluded: ‘It’s making me out to be somebody I’m really not. My children are my priority.’
Speaking out: Natasha had decided to go public in 2011 after Ryan’s controversial attempt to place a gagging order on Big Brother star Imogen Thomas after their six-month affair ended
In 2019, Rhodri revealed he hadn’t spoken to his brother for eight years, ever since his secret affair with Natasha was revealed.
In a conversation with Barnaby Slater on the Almost Famous podcast, Rhodri explained that he only found out about Ryan and Natasha’s eight-year affair on the day it was in the press.
‘I found out on the day the papers put it out,’ he explained. ‘Her mum came to my house at six in the morning.’
Rhodri couldn’t talk to his ex wife about the affair as she ‘took the kids to Spain the day before and turned her phone off.’
He added that he had had ‘an inkling a couple of years before but mum talked me out of it.’
‘It was a night of a United party and I was supposed to be meeting her and I was ringing her and she wasn’t answering. I thought “I’ll know where she’ll be.” I went to the party and she was in there.’
Both Ryan and Natasha attempted to reconcile with Rhodri, with Ryan telling him the affair didn’t mean anything and was ‘just sex’, but Rhodri insisted ‘it was not real, it was all fake’.
‘Six months down the line he said he’s going to do this, do that and then nothing has happened… He expects me just to forget it and act like things are normal but no, I went to the papers and from that day they never spoke to me.’

Rhodri said he has been left hurt by his mother siding with Ryan, admitting: ‘It’s like I’ve done the affair.’
Of his brother Rhodri said: ‘He was a young, humble, hard working guy, still a hard working guy, but now a cocky, an arrogant and thinks he can get away with anything type person.’
The affair was first revealed in June 2011 when Natasha admitted to secretly sleeping with the former star winger over an eight year period in an interview with a Sunday paper. She claimed she had aborted Ryan’s baby just weeks before she got married to Rhodri in Las Vegas.
Natasha had decided to go public in 2011 after Ryan’s controversial attempt to place a gagging order on Big Brother star Imogen Thomas after their six-month affair ended.
He had spent £150,000 getting a High Court injunction against Imogen. However, his attempt to silence her fell apart after a sustained Twitter campaign that resulted in an MP naming him in parliament.
Natasha had branded her decision to unveil the affair in an interview rather than telling her husband as ‘unforgivable.’ She and Ryan first began dating secretly in 2003 and continued their affair while his wife Stacey Giggs had been pregnant with their two children.
The reports come as Rhodri’s brother Ryan remains at the centre of a police probe over claims he attacked his ex-girlfriend Kate Greville.
The allegations have led to the former Manchester United legend, 47, being asked to stand aside from his job as Wales’ manager.
