Adriana and Christian Karembeu : still friends, but separated
What the French daily France Soir called "One of the most glamorous couples of French showbiz" decided to separate but are still friends, according to relatives.
After 12 years of marriage the supermodel Adriana Karembeu and her husband, the former French international football player Christian, decided to divorce.
Rumours had been circulating that the Slovakian-born model was not happy with their lifestyle, her husband's hectic schedule and "the fact that they didn't appear to have a life together."
Christian, a member of France's 1998 World Cup winning side has recently published a book (together with journalists Anne Pitoiset et Claudine Wéry) "Kanak" in which he recounts his childhood in New Caledonia and the story of his family. Apparently, the couple was sharing time together in the last months. Friends of them, such as Eric Cormier (picture) are going to try to stay neutral.
Their separation is now official and marks the end of a relationship which began in the most romantic of manners aboard a Paris-Milan flight in 1996.
