This is the kind of gossip I love. The kind that just makes you go, "wow." Martina Navratilova has a new girlfriend. Her name is Julia Lemigova. Her claim to fame was that she was the last Miss Universe Soviet Union.
In 2005, her former lover Edouard Stern (below) was murdered. He had been murdered while wearing a latex body suit by his then girlfriend Cecile Brossard during an S&M session. She was convicted of his murder this year.
Julia and Edouard met back in 1997. They had an affair while he was still married to his wife. In 1999, Julia gave birth to their son. When the son was five months old he died of internal injuries. It is speculated that he was murdered by a Bulgarian nanny who had been hired a few days before the son's death and disappeared immediately after the boy died. Lemigova claimed the nanny had been hired to murder her son but the investigation was closed in 2002 because there just was not any further information that had come in on the case.
Then, in 2004, Brossard called Julia and said she had information about the death of Julia's son. At that time Brossard was in a relationship with Edouard. Lemigova thinks that Edouard told Brossard what had happened and that Brossard started blackmailing Brossard about that statement and at some point they had a confrontation and Brossard killed Edouard.
Hopefully now that Lemigova is back in the spotlight new information will come out because I think this is just the tip of the iceberg. The Daily Mail has a much longer piece on this and many more photos.
