However, according to the 30-year-old, she has been excluded from a list of Maradona's closest family members and friends allowed into Casa Rosada.

Reports claim she was banned from the legendary striker's wake by his ex-wife, Claudia, and asked to queue just like the rest of the public.

She has since expressed her disappointment with the decision, insisting she has every right to say her last goodbye to Maradona.

“The decision on who gets in depends on Claudia. I don’t know why they’re doing this to me. All I wanted to do was say goodbye to Diego," SunSport quoted Oliva saying.
“I was his last partner. I have as much right as anyone else to say goodbye to him," she lamented.

The Sun reports Oliva spent six years with Maradona and came close to marrying him before they split in 2018.

Meanwhile, Legit.ng earlier reported that Maradona was married to his first and only wife, Claudia Villafané, who he wedded in Buenos Aires, with the pair said to have met when Claudia was just 17.
