Reality TV's Paul Nassif has told reporters that he had only started dating his beautiful girlfriend six weeks ago.
He is refuting claims about his relationship with former Miss Nevada USA Helen Salas beginning when he was married to Adrienne.
The 50-year-old plastic surgeon who starred on The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills has been spotted by TMZ in front of The Ivy on Valentine's day, with 27-year-old Salas.
According to Radar Online, ex-wife Adrienne is furious with Nassif for his romance with the pageant queen, which he initially tried to hide. The star allegedly introduced her as a nanny to his wife.
“Paul is dating Helen Salas and she’s been living in his $10,000 (€7,474) a month house with him. [...] He told Adrienne she was the babysitter, but when she wanted to get a background check done on her, Paul then told her she resigned, but she didn’t.
“This girl isn’t the babysitter, she’s his girlfriend. She’s furious with him,” a friend of the Nasiffs describes.
Nassif has clarified that he is not dating a nanny, introducing Salas and explaining their idea of a romantic night is going out for a nice meal.
Adrienne suspects that Paul has been having an affair with Salas while they were still married, and she is feeling not only cheated, but “completely duped” by her ex.
“While they were still together, Paul would go to Vegas and go off the radar, not answering phone calls. [...] Adrienne would hear from friends that he was partying with a girl, but she couldn’t believe he would do that, even though she knew things weren’t going well in their relationship.
“She doesn’t care if he is dating someone else now but she doesn’t like that he lied to her. All she wanted to do was protect her children and make sure they are safe with the people around them,” the source adds.
