June 23, 2010

It is not a secret that Julia Lemigova is Martina Navratilova’s girlfriend, the two confirmed their relationship over a year ago, but who is Lemigova? Well you are going to have to keep reading to find out, there is some good stuff too!


The beautiful Julia Lemigova is the girlfriend of tennis star Martina Navratilova and she has been for awhile. Now that Martina has settled with her ex Toni Layton it looks like the couple can finally get on with their lives together as they have been engaged for some time according to Daily Mail.

Julia is a beauty queen, model and entrepreneur. The 37 year old Russai born beauty was the last Miss Soviet Union before the nation collapsed and she went on to represent the Soviet Union in the 1991 Miss Universe pageant yep she got to wear a tiara maybe not like the one in the photo but a tiara none the less. She is the owner of the Joiya spa in Paris.and also has her own cosmetics firm called White Russia.

Lemigova has certainly had her fair share of trouble and tragedy in her life. In 2005 she made headlines when her former lover Edouard Stern was found dead after being shot in the head. Stem’s mistress Cécile Brossard later confessed to killing him. Lemigova and Stern torrid affair was one of love and tragedy. The two met in 1997, Stem left his wife in 1998 and in 1999 Julia became pregnant with their son Maximilien. Their son died in 2000 from internal injuries that suggested the baby could have been shaken, he was only five months old. The new Bulgarian nanny Julia had hired vanished a few days after the baby’s death. In 2002 the inquiry into Maximilien death was closed due to lack of evidence. However in 2004 Brossard reportedly offered to tell Lemigova the truth about her son’s death which led her to believe Brossard had been blackmailing Stem about information regarding the boy’s death.

Martina Navratilova’s girlfriend Julia Lemigova has a troubled and said past, however it looks like she is putting it all behind her after finding love with Martina.
