German tabloid Bild claimed that Ozil's alleged break-up with Capristo was "far from amicable".
Lell, 30, who now plays for Spanish side Levante, is reported to have alleged that Ozil has "always" been in a relationship with Melanie Rickinger, the right-back's former partner, wrote Bleacher report.
Lell is said to have made the claims on his Facebook account. He allegedly sent a Whatsapp message detailing Ozil's closeness to Rickinger when both were in relationships with other people.
Also, it's Ozil's birthday today (October 15). He turned 26.
