Mumbai: Nov 10, 2012
Star India batsman Virat Kohli, who was spotted earlier in the year with a mysterious girl, seems to be dating a Brazilian model named Izabelle Leite.
According to a Mumbai Mirror report, what seemed to be a casual fling, has grown on to become a serious relationship. The model has shifted her base to Mumbai and she has been frequently visiting Delhi, where Kohli resides.
The model was first spotted by the Paparazzi in June earlier this year.
When Virat was asked about the identity of the mystery woman in a press conference later at New Delhi, he was miffed.
"I won't answer personal questions," the Delhi dasher had said as he walked out of the press conference.
For almost five months, the identity of the woman remained a mystery until recently, when she was getting spotted in the Mumbai modelling circuit.
"She is in love with Virat. She has even shifted base to Mumbai to be with him. She has been a keen follower of the Indian cricket team and even tweets about the times when she goes to meet Virat," the report quoted a friend of the model as saying.
"They met for an ad shoot in Singapore and they have been together ever since. After they were caught on the roads of Singapore, Virat takes a lot of care so that they are never seen in public. Izabelle was there when Yuvraj Singh made his comeback in Chennai," the friend added.
Izabelle has been regularly cheering Team India on her Twitter page.
