Naomi Campbell is being dragged into Russian’s boyfriend Vladimir Doronin’s messy divorce as his estranged wife Ekaterina claims that the supermodel is the reason for the split. Campbell, 41, might be one step closer to marrying the Russian billionaire, but sources close to the couple say that she is devastated because Doronin and Ekaterina had been separated for ten years before she started dating him in 2008. The 49-year-old property mogul had a seven year relationship with another woman before he met 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. She is no homewrecker,’ says a friend. “The truth is that Vladimir had been separated from her for a very long time when he and Naomi got together.”
Ekaterina has been married to Vladimir for 24 years and they have a daughter, Katia, 15. His wife is believed to want a big chunk of his huge fortune.
Naomi and Ekaterina were said to be on friendly terms at one point and has even been spotted hanging out together. She has reportedly said of the supermodels relationship with her husband: “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.”
A friend of the couple says, “Vladimir and Naomi are very much in love and are happy together but this is going to cause them both a fair amount of stress. It’s ridiculous that Naomi is being dragged into this.”
