Martina Navratilova's Girlfriend Has Some Crazy Gossip In Her Past


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.

Now that's gossip worthy of a Danielle Steel novel. :) (And, of course, an eventual Lifetime Miniseries Event.)

Wow, that shit is deep!

That poor little baby.

So Julia believes that Edouard hired the nanny to kill THEIR child and helped her flee after the murder?

OMG this would make a great whodunit on tv or at the theater. Too bad it's at the expense of an innocent child.

Whoa is right. Craziness.

Cancan said...

Wow, that sounds like something out of Tolstoy or Doestoevsky. How dark and tragic.

Crikey!

Finally, a family more dysfunctional than mine.

I never thought I'd see the day.

But if this is only the tip of the iceberg, and there's truth to the allegations about the murder of the child, I hope whoever's responsible roasts forever in the lowest pit in Hell.

Geez Louise! Seconds Paisley's comment.

And I thought my life had too much drama. All this is almost unbelievable.

Maybe Martina needs to choose her girlfriends more carefully. I remember the one years ago who sued her for galimony.

Salacious stuff, but that poor baby. Off to read the article!

Somewhat related, will someone tell me how latex body suits work for kinky sex? I don't get it - wouldn't it just cover you entirely? I remember reading that a helper to Brad and Angelina bought them both suits and was wondering what they did in them.

Yes, please keep us updated on this one, but could you change the names to "Bob, Jane & Mary" for simplicity sake. Monday brain doesn't compute sophisticated storyline AND character at the same time.

selenakyle said...

Haaaa! Y'all are all funny today!

Nothing I can add except a huge

DITTO!

RocketQueen said...

@ whole_lotto - Thanks! That makes a little more sense. Still, you gotta peel that shit OFF to get to the goods! ;)

Someone needs to get Dominick Dunne to look into this.

I agree mygeorgie. Like all Russian novels, this was very hard to follow. Such a sad story.

Pookie said...

eeep! enty, keep us updated! this is train wreck is fascinating.

blankprincess said...

Julia looks so much like (a younger, healthier, and saner) Katie Holmes in that B&W photo.

ardleigh said...

No wonder soap operas are closing down when real life brings out these types of storylines. Holy crapollie.

Vanity Fair published an article by Bryan Burrough in July 2005 entitled "The Man in the Latex Suit..." that covered Stern's life and murder. At one time Stern was the heir apparent to Lazard Freres' chairman, Michel David-Weill, as he was married to David-Weill's daughter, Beatrice. This is a fascinating and far-ranging story.
