Anna Kournikova
Enrique Iglesias' father has never met Anna Kournikova.
The 38-year-old star has been in a relationship with the Russian tennis player for 12 years, but Julio Iglesias admits he has never been in the same room as his son's girlfriend.
The 70-year-old Latin singer told the April issue of Billboard magazine: "The last 14 years, 15 years of my life have flown by. And that's the only way I can truly explain it. There's no reason why -- it's not his fault, and it's not my fault."
Enrique started dating Anna, 32, after meeting her on the set of his 'Escape' music video in 2001, but he recently ad...

Enrique Iglesias and Anna Kournikova have moved into their new $26 million mansion in Miami, Florida.
The couple, whose 12-year romance is rumored to be "on the rocks" because of the 'Heart Attack' singer's reluctance to get married, have completed work on the 20,000-square-foot house on Sabal Palm Road in the Bay Point community, just weeks after quietly selling their $10 million home in the same neighborhood.

Enrique Iglesias and Anna Kournikova sell love nest

Enrique Iglesias
Enrique Iglesias and Anna Kournikova have fuelled rumors of a split by selling one of their houses.
The couple's 12 year romance is said to be "on the rocks" due to the tennis pro's increasing annoyance at the 'Hero' singer's reluctance to get married and settle down.
The New York Post's Page Six is reporting the pair have secretly sold one of their mansions in Bay Point, Biscayne Bay, Miami, for around $10 million.
Enrique, 38, and Anna, 32, sold the home through a broker without putting it on the market, presumably to avoid more media speculation about their supposed break-up.

There were festival dramas aplenty in August, with The Libertines and Guns N' Roses dominating headlines at Britain's Reading and Leeds weekenders.

Axl Rose sparked an ongoing war-of-words with event boss Melvin Benn after he decided to shut the sound off when the band overran its curfew.
