In weird celeb news of the day, singer Julio Iglesias admits that he’s never come face to face with his son Enrique’s girlfriend.
Normally, that’s not such a big deal, but considering that the younger Iglesias has been dating Anna Kournikova for more than a decade, it seems a little, um, bizarre.
In an interview to Mirror in the UK, Enrique’s father comments, “You know I have to tell the truth, I have never met Anna. Yes, my wife, and my kids and his brothers have, but I have never met her, no, no, never. I don’t know how come. My kids are very independent and it is difficult to see Enrique because he is all over the world. But Anna is very beautiful – they have good taste my kids.”
Talking about his son Enrique, he says, “I am very proud of Enrique – he is a super guy. You know it’s not as easy to follow in the same steps as that of the father. Like if you play tennis normally the kid doesn’t play tennis like the father. But Enrique is in the same class of guys like Michael Douglas and Liza Minnelli. The music is very different to mine and he has gone his own way, I don’t like to interfere with that. I don’t have to say whether I like it or not. He is doing very well, he is a clever guy and he is very charming.”
