Ra­heem’s mum still has so­cial hous­ing de­spite €2.5m man­sion

She stays on in area with mas­sive wait­ing list

Irish Sunday Mirror - - NEWS - BY DAN WARBURTON

The Sun­day Mir­ror can re­veal Na­dine Clarke kept hold of the hous­ing as­so­ci­a­tion prop­erty even though needy fam­i­lies in the area face a wait of up to 27 years for a roof over their heads.

Na­dine, 44, is now said to di­vide her time be­tween the prop­erty on the es­tate where Manch­ester City ace Ra­heem grew up and her lux­u­ri­ous home 22 miles away in a leafy vil­lage.

There is no sug­ges­tion Na­dine is break­ing the law.

But it means fam­i­lies ur­gently wait­ing for so­cial hous­ing are be­ing de­prived when she has an­other pri­vately owned home.

Ra­heem, 23, faced pub­lic de­ri­sion after he showed off his mum’s crys­tal-en­crusted bath- room on so­cial me­dia after Eng­land crashed out of the 2016 Eu­ros to Ice­land.

The ex-liver­pool star, who takes home €170,000 a week, has also told how he used to help Na­dine clean ho­tel toi­lets.

He bought her the 10-bed prop­erty near Slough, Berks, after land­ing his €44mil­lion move to City.

She and Ra­heem are listed on the Land Registry as its own­ers.

But Na­dine is also still on the elec­toral roll at her hous­ing as­so­ci­a­tion home in the north­west Lon­don bor­ough of Brent, near Wem­b­ley.

When the Sun­day Mir­ror vis­ited the prop­erty a man said Na­dine split her time be­tween both places.

De­scrib­ing him­self as a rel­a­tive of Ster­ling, he told us: “She is ei­ther here or in the place in Slough.” More than 20,000 peo­ple are cur­rently reg­is­tered on a wait­ing list for a coun­cil house in Brent. Na­dine re­fused to speak when ap­proached at her man­sion and a spokesman for Ra­heem re­fused to com­ment. The com­pany that owns the Brent prop­erty, Cat­a­lyst Hous­ing Ltd, also de­clined to talk to us. A source said: “You would think Na­dine might have given the Brent place up since so many peo­ple are wait­ing for a place to live.” dan.warburton@ mir­ror.co.uk
