In the life of the top model Irina Shayk, there were two world-class celebrities with whom it was known about the affair – Cristiano Ronaldo and Bradley Cooper. At the beginning of 2015, she broke up with Cristiano (as insiders said, this happened due to the numerous betrayals of the football player), and in April of the same year she already started dating Cooper. In 2017, they had a daughter, Leia, and two years later rumors began to appear that Shayk and Cooper had parted ways. In June, they were confirmed by the People tabloid, citing a source surrounded by the couple. Irina’s friends put forward several versions at once about what happened – from the actor’s betrayal with Lady Gaga to excessive participation in the life of the young family of Bradley’s mother.

“You will never know anything about my personal life,” said Jared Leto, a Hollywood actor, director and frontman of the rock band 30 Seconds To Mars at the dawn of his career.

Since 2015, Jared has been regularly seen in the company of the Russian model Valerie Kaufman – and fans are sure that the couple is connected by something more than friendship. From time to time they attend fashion shows together and relax on a yacht, but Leto remains true to himself and is in no hurry to officially announce the romance. Valerie is in the top 50 world fashion models according to Models, and in 2015 she became the best Russian model according to Glamor.

After divorcing British artist Nicholas Rowland, Grigorieva lived with actor Timothy Dalton, cheating on him with Swedish millionaire Peter Blomkvist. Then fate brought her to Mel Gibson: this marriage marked the most scandalous stage in her life. Oksana was able to prove physical and moral violence in court, which ordered the actor to pay 15 million dollars in case of divorce to the ex-wife. Grigorieva has already begun to receive payments, but took part in the show, where she violated the terms of the settlement agreement and gave the presenter to listen to the audio recording with threats from Mel, having lost the opportunity to count on compensation.

This is the most unusual stellar relationship: their participants managed to keep everything secret for years! It is known that the tennis player met the singer in 2002, during the shooting of his video. According to the plot, he was supposed to kiss Anna, but when he saw herpes on her lips, he called her “a pimply youngster.” It seemed that they were supposed to become enemies, but after a couple of months rumors about their passionate romance began to persist in the press. Insiders reported that the lovers were already living together, but neither Anna nor Enrique did not give official comments about the relationship. And at the end of 2017, amazing news appeared on the social networks of celebrities: it turns out that they had twins, Nicholas and Lucy. No one was surprised by the fact that Kournikova managed to hide her pregnancy.

In the life of Adam there was another Russian girl, but this time he himself became the culprit of the separation. The relationship did not last long and at first Levine ignored questions from journalists about Maria. It would be better if he continued to do so: once he nevertheless told a press representative that he was not satisfied with the fact that Sharapova was like a fish in bed – he was silent and demanded similar behavior from Adam. He insisted that this girl brought him literally to depression!

In the past, Benedict had an affair with the Russian model Yekaterina Elizarova – the granddaughter of a KGB officer and the great-granddaughter of the husband of V.I.Lenin’s sister could not keep the actor by her side for a long time. After a year of stormy romantic relationships, Katya managed to get involved in shooting in the television movie “Meet the Russians”, in which she disgraced herself with negative statements about the life of her compatriots in the West. Benedict did not need scandalous fame, and therefore he chose to refuse to communicate with the Russian woman.
