Messi’s look-alike denies tricking 23 women



Lionel Messi ’ s Iranian doppelganger Reza Parastesh has denied tricking 23 women in his native country into sleeping with him after taking on the Argentine football icon’ s identity to seduce them .

Spanish sports publications Marca circulated the accusations earlier this week that Parastesh had told the women he was in fact Barcelona ’ s all- time top scorer , which could be classified as ‘ rape by deception’ , illegal in some countries .

Parastesh has since addressed the issue on his Instagram page , where the ‘ fake Messi ’ insisted the claims were “ fake news ” that could harm his “ reputation and credibility” , and claimed he would be seeking legal action in response .

“ Hi guys , a false and dummy news is being trended in social media with the subject of raping 23 girls by me, please do not play with people ’ s reputation and credibility, ” the 26 – year – old wrote to his near 700, 000 followers .

“ All of us is [sic ] aware of the fact that if it happened to someone there would be some complaint and it leads to prosecution . That ’ s a disaster and calamity and would be [an ] international issue ( 23 cases ) .

“ If this news was true I would be in jail right now ; I’ m going to pursue this news from the legal administration definitely and I want the police to find the source of this fake news and announce [it to ] the public . ”
