Former boxing star Oscar De La Hoya is often in the news for his relationship troubles. And this time, the allegations of his allegedly impending divorce with wife Millie have led him to the top of gossip pages.
Our sources say that rumors are flying that the couple has now decided to end their 15 years relationship and are on the verge of separation. But they assure us that it is not the case. The couple has been spending quality times together and they are not ending their relationship, according to our inside sources.
Well! That’s good news for Oscar’s fans. However, the couple once were known for living separately for ten years because of his affairs outside their marriage.
Oscar and Millie Corretjer have been married since October 5, 2001 .They have two children, Oscar Gabriel de la Hoya (born December 29, 2005) and Nina Lauren Nenitte de la Hoya (born December 29, 2007).The family is often seen together at events and competitions.
Rumors for his divorce first surfaced because Oscar could not succeed in his past four relationships, some of which took place after his marriage. However, Millie too had a sixteen-year-long relationship with a celebrity, sources say.
Oscar has three children from those relationships and they are son Jacob (with Toni Alvarado), son Devon(Angelique McQueen) and daughter Atiana (with Shanna Moakler). Perhaps because of his failure in these relationships, he is being targeted by rumors of him leaving Millie too.
But a person's past does not justify judgment about his future, does it ???
In year 1998, the boxer had to face certain issues regarding a rape allegation. But later on, the case was solved by court in 2001. Shortly after that, he married Millie. Since then, he has had no such legal issues and is leading a normal life.
In an interview with Univision, the former welterweight champion talked about his marital, alcohol and drug abuse problems.
He said: 'My drug of choice was cocaine and alcohol. Cocaine was recent. The last two years. And I depended more in the alcohol than the cocaine.”
He had also confirmed that he had cheated his wife Millie and regrets on being unfaithful towards her.
Commonly known as Golden Boy, Oscar had become the subject of a photo scandal when a stripper posted images of him wearing fishnet stockings and high heels, claiming that he was cheating his wife.
When sources asked him about the scandal, he replied that it wasn't him in the pictures and the stripper was 'out for money'.
His spokesman also revealed: ‘His head's too small and it doesn't even look like his body.’
The ex-American (now Mexican) boxer has been retired since March 24,2012. He is stated to have lived a normal life after ending his career. His last fight was a beating down at the hands of Manny Pacquiao and his corner stopped the first at the eighth round.
