Enrique Iglesias believes his realistic view of relationships means he and Anna Kournikova won’t be the next big showbiz breakup.
It’s been a bad year for famous couples, with Avril Lavigne and Chad Kroeger announcing their separation yesterday and Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner and Gwen Stefani and Gavin Rossdale splitting within the past few months.
Enrique and tennis ace Anna have been dating since 2001 but are yet to tie the knot. However, the singer believes their foundation is completely solid.
“You go through your good times, you go through your bad times,” he admitted to British newspaper Metro when asked how he’s avoided the showbiz pitfalls. “It’s a tough thing for me to believe there’s such a thing as the perfect relationship. I don’t think that exists.”
Proving the couple that plays together stays together, Enrique, 40, and 34-year-old Anna even engage in the odd tennis match. The crooner insists playing a pro is fun and even likens it to “playing against a wall”.
But there was a time before Enrique was all loved up and travelled the world to adoring groupies. While it was fun in the moment, he doesn’t miss those days.
“One time, I opened my suitcase and it was full of panties,” he recalled. “I don’t know how it happened. Although it was funny, I felt violated. They were clean, there was only one skid mark… I’m kidding!”
No doubt there are plenty of fans who do miss Enrique’s single days though. The handsome star is currently enjoying success with his latest single El Perdón (Forgiveness) with Nicky Jam, which is sure to get hearts racing.
