Bar Refaeli Denies Report She's Lonely and Looking for New Famous Boyfriend
Poor Bar Refaeli? Not so fast! On Friday, Oct. 18, The New York Daily News posted quotes from a reported tell-all interview with Israeli newspaper Yedioth Ahronoth, in which the stunning 28-year-old Israeli supermodel allegedly said she's lonely and can't find a boyfriend after splitting from Leonardo DiCaprio two years ago. But Refaeli says the report is false.
"Just woke up to DailyNews saying I'm looking for a strong FAMOUS guy -- what?!?! Where did u get that?? Completely false," she tweeted Friday. "LOL now I won't be stopped getting asked out by you guys ha? I'm single, happy and loving it!"
The Daily News had published an alleged excerpt from Refaeli's Friday interview with the Israeli paper. "I don't understand it," Refaeli was quoted as saying. "I'm okay. I look great. I'm cool. I like going out. I like being at home, I like movies, I like eating. So what's wrong with me? Why am I alone?"
She was also quoted sharing her qualifications for her next boyfriend. "I'm looking for someone serious, who I can set up home with. Someone who comes from a warm, loving family like mine, who has values like mine," she allegedly shared. "I'm very interested in going out with someone who is big and strong and famous."
The gorgeous Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue cover model's last serious relationship was with DiCaprio, 38, whom she began dating in spring of 2006. They split for six months in 2009, but got back together the following year. The rekindled romance was short-lived, however, and the two split for good in May 2011.
The alleged interview claimed Refaeli said she had a breakdown when she saw photos of the actor dating Blake Lively (now married to Ryan Reynolds) during summer 2011, shortly after their split. "I suddenly choked up and I started crying uncontrollably," she was quoted as telling the newspaper. "No one knows that I went back to my room and broke down in bitter tears. I couldn't stop crying." But the next day, a swimming trip with her a friend in Cannes, France helped her move on. "It was like I was cleansed," she reportedly recalled. "From that day, I haven't cried since."
