Daily Entertainment Newsyour daily dose of gossipSo we heard Vladimir Putin and his wife since 1983 Lyudmila are divorcing, it came to our ears that there is a new lady in the heart of the Russian politician, a much younger lady I must add, her name is Alina Kabaeva and yes, she is the former Olympic gymnast turned politician who is 30 years his junior!!Some of my friends think Vladimir Putin is one hot piece of Russian butt, I have my doubts about that, certainly Alina Kabaeva agrees with my friends, not to mention that Alina unlike my friends is into politics and Putin is just the perfect partner to hook up with.This is not the first time media has reported a story about Alina and Vladimir being involved, the first time came in 2008, when the the Russian paper Moskovsky Korrespondent stated that she was engaged to marry Putin.The story was published on April 12, 2008 both denied the allegations Putin said there is not a single word of truth in that story, Alina’s rep called the story nonsense and by October 29, 2008 the Moskovsky Korrespondent was closed on financial grounds, nobody talked a thing about it until the following year when on December, 2009 Alina gave birth to her son Dmitri, many believed the boy’s father is Putin, but Alina denied it.Alina also denied that had given birth to a boy or any child whatsoever..On this page I promised to tell you about the most important events in my life and about my family. So when I become a mother (which hasn’t happened yet) I’ll definitely write about it.Thanks to everyone who has sent congratulations and was worried about me. Only because of all of you, I’ve broken my rule of never paying attention to gossip.Let’s not forget Alina was romantically involved with the militia captain who moved to Moscow from Georgia in 1996 to apply for a post-graduate course of the Moscow Institute of Law, Shalva a former boxer holds degrees – athletic and legal.In 2004 Alina and Shalva announced they were getting married, around that time a Russian paper published an interview with Shalva’s wife Olga, mother of his daughter. Shalva and Olga got divorced soon after that but kept in touch eventually Alina and Shalva split up.Some media talked about the possibility that Putin and Alina will get married now that he is single and free to mingle, I guess only time will tell what is going to happen to these two. But would you like to know more about Vladimir Putin’s rumored girlfriend/ mistress and baby mama?Alina Kabaeva Biography.-30-year-old Alina Kabaeva was born Alina Maratovna Kabaeva on May 12th, 1983 in Tashkent, Uzbekistan, Russia to Lyubov Kabaeva a Russian basketball player and Marat Kabaev, an ethnic Tatar, was a professional footballer with the team Pahtakor.
