Celebrity dating rumors should really be taken with a grain of salt, especially when they seem so incredibly unlikely, and this is the latest of the unexpected celebrity pairings: Terri Irwin and Russell Crowe.
Crowe is a longtime friend of the family and he and Irwin have been rumored to be romantically linked before (reports which they rubbished earlier this year), however, this particular rumor is persistent, and according to a new report from Australia’s New Idea, the alleged couple are expected to make their romance public in the near future.
“Terri is so nervous about going public with her romance with Russ, but she doesn’t want to hide it any longer,” a source very close to Irwin reportedly told the publication.
But that’s not all. According to the publication, Australia Zoo insiders have confirmed that Crowe and Irwin are indeed a couple, and that they have announced their relationship to close friends and are allegedly “revealing they’d ‘love’ to get married and have discussed plans for a ‘small, intimate’ ceremony in late 2018.” Um, what?
But before you start thinking there’s any truth to these claims, Irwin’s rep was quick to deny the reports. Telling Daily Mail Australia that “All of these reports are completely false. Terri and Russell are not dating and are certainly not planning a wedding.” Yep, we didn’t think so!
