Rumors of a secret union betweenÂ Anna Kournikova between Enrique Iglesias have resurfaced after photos of the tennis star wearing engagement and wedding-style rings appeared online and several newspapers.
The Daily Mail recently spotted the couple exiting a restaurant in West Hollywood and noted that Kournikova was wearing an impressive diamond wedding band on her finger, in addition to the engagement ring that she has been wearing for some time.
Kournikova started dating pop star Enrique Iglesias in late 2001 (she appeared in his video, “Escape”), and rumors that the couple had secretly married circulated in 2003 and again in 2005. Kournikova herself has consistently refused to directly confirm or deny the status of her personal relationships.
But in May 2007, Enrique Iglesias was (mistakenly, as he would clarify later) quoted in theÂ New York Sun that he had no intention of marrying Kournikova and settling down because they had split up. The singer would later deny these rumors of “divorce” or simply separation.
In June 2008, Iglesias told theÂ Daily Star that he had married Kournikova the previous year and that they are currently separated. Enrique has stated in interviews after that it was simply a joke, and they are still very much together. In an interview withÂ Graham Norton in 2010, Kournikova confirmed that she and Iglesias have been together for over eight years but have no plans to marry in the near future.
