Gerard Butler, 43, started dating his much younger girlfriend, 25-year-old model/actress Madalina Ghenea, in 2012 and for a while, things seemed to be going well for the celebrity couple, even though he lives in the U.S. and she’s based in Italy. Butler has even traveled across the globe on a few occasions to spend time with his sugar baby. But according to an Italian tabloid, this celebrity couple’s May-December relationship isn’t so hot anymore.

Ghenea is rumored to be hooking up with 31-year-old Marco Borriello, a professional Italian soccer player. The tabloid is claiming that Ghenea was recently caught making out with Borriello while on vacation in Ibiza.

It didn’t help that Butler was a no-show at Ghenea’s brother’s wedding in July, even though he was visiting her in Romania. However, Ghenea later explained that her famous older man intentionally didn’t come to the wedding because they didn’t want to overshadow the bride and groom. “Of course it would have become an event dedicated to [Butler], and not my brother,” said Ghenea.


While there’s a good chance that the cheating rumor about this celebrity couple is completely false, it does pose an interesting question. If a younger woman is dating an older man, will she eventually be tempted to move on to someone hot and young if the opportunity arises?
