Lara Bingle: Sexy and single!
Lara Bingle silences the rumours and confirms to OK! she’s single and taking control of her life!
Speculation about Lara’s relationship status has been doing the rounds for weeks now. Wearing a ring on her wedding finger spurred engagement rumours, while intimate Instagram pics of her with Anthony Kiedis from Red Hot Chili Peppers told another story.
OK! can now confirm that Lara is single, after splitting from her fashion designer boyfriend, Gareth Moody, 35, late last year. The decision to break up with the man she says taught her to bring balance into her life is not one the model, TV personality and underwear designer took lightly, but she believes it was the right one given their lives were going in different directions.
Lara, there’s a lot of talk about your love-life – can you set the record straight?
I’m not with anyone. Gareth and I broke up just before New Year. It was a long time coming. He lives his life differently to me and he found my life very full-on and couldn’t embrace it.
How did that affect you?
Every day, I was feeling down a little bit and I was always trying to dumb down my life. He told me I needed do things other than modelling and my work. It made me realise maybe I should have other interests, but also that I love what I do. We tried to make it work, but we’re on different pages.
Would you say there was jealousy?
No, he’s in the industry too, but doesn’t want to do anything in the spotlight – which is fine, but life has always been
like this for me and I didn’t see that I needed to change it. We were forever pulling and pushing each other.
