Though blog readers have criticized Naomi Campbell in recent years for dating a married man, in actuality, she has been dating a man that has been separated from his wife for 10 years. For the first time, however, it now appears that Naomi’s man is truly headed for divorce.
Unfortunately, according to the New York Post, Russian billionaire Vladimir Doronin’s estranged wife of 24 years, Ekaterina Doronin, plans to cite Naomi Campbell as the reason for the demise of their marriage.
Sources claim that Campbell is devastated that she would be listed as the cause of the Doronin’s split. The so-called Russian Donald Trump had reportedly been separated from Ekaterina Doronin — again, for 10 years — when he began dating Campbell in 2008. Doronin even reportedly had a 7-year relationship in between separating from his wife and meeting Campbell.
Naomi is pleased that Ekaterina has finally agreed to give Vladimir a divorce, but she is upset she is planning on blaming her for the marriage breakdown,” a source close to Campbell states. “She is no homewrecker. The truth is that Vladimir had been separated from her for a very long time when he and Naomi got together.
However, Ekaterina Doronin has denied that she and her husband were — or even are — estranged. She told the News of the World last year, “It’s a ridiculous affair. Vladimir is married to me and we are still a couple. Naomi is deluding herself if she thinks she can take my husband.”
Campbell and Doronin met at the Cannes Film Festival in 2008. The supermodel has since moved to Moscow to be closer to her beau.
“I live in Moscow now permanently and I really love life there,” Campbell told British Vogue in 2010. “I’m really happy and things are just going really well. You know, I just don’t know how many more catwalks I’m going to do from now on. We’ll just see.”
