Naomi Campbell Split? Supermodel Allegedly Breaks Up With Russian Billionaire Boyfriend
Has Naomi Campbell split from her Russian billionaire beau Vladimir Doronin?
The New York Post‘s Page Six is reporting that Campbell and Doronin have gone their separate ways after spending five years together. “Exclusive sources” told the newspaper the pair have “taken a break” while Campbell focuses on her new modeling competition show, The Face.
Furthermore, it’s alleged that Doronin has been seen flirting with other women in New York, including a blonde woman at the city’s Gramercy Park Hotel. Says Page Six’s mole:
“Naomi and Vlad have a complex relationship, and sometimes break up and make up. In many ways their relationship is like a business arrangement. Naomi brings glamor to his hotels and properties, and he treats her extremely well. But they spend a lot of time apart due to work commitments.”
It’s proven difficult to get confirmation on the alleged Vladimir Doronin and Naomi Campbell split; Campbell’s publicist ignored The Huffington Post‘s request, while there’s been little focus on the couple over the past few months.
If anything, their relationship seems to have been going swimmingly. The couple shared a vacation in Miami in March, while Campbell and Kate Moss arranged a lavish 50th birthday party for Doronin in November 2012. It hardly reeks of a couple in crisis.
Although Doronin is still technically married to his long-estranged wife, Ekaterina, that hardly appears to be an issue for Campbell, who has been with the Russian real estate mogul since 2008. Indeed, marriage isn’t high up on Campbell’s list of priorities. Speaking to GQ magazine in 2007, she said:
“I am afraid of the word ‘marriage.’ I’m afraid of making that commitment and failing because I never want to be divorced. I don’t want divorce to enter my whole reality.”
Campbell and Doronin usually spend time together in Moscow, where Doronin is busy building a futuristic-looking mansion for Campbell. Pictures of the unusual 2,650-square meter property appeared last year:
If the Naomi Campbell split rumors are true, the 42-year-old will no doubt take consolation in her career, which continues to soar. The British beauty graces the May 2013 cover of Vogue Brazil, while The Face has already been renewed for a ten-episode second season.
