Simona Halep, according to Romanian publication ProSport, is getting divorced of her millionaire husband Toni Iuruc following her failed US Open campaign. The decision came at less than one year since the couple had their civil marriage.
According to ProSport sources, the decision will be officialized Thursday at a notary. Yet, when Toni Iuruc was asked to comment on the divorce, he answered: “I don't comment on our private life... No, I'm not getting a divorce tomorrow...
Stop insisting, no comment," said Iuruc for Fanatik.ro. Halep and her husband will not split their fortunes because they decided, from the beginning of their marriage, that they won’t do this. The rumored reason for the split is the big distance between Halep and her husband.
Moreover, while the distance between Halep and Iuruc could have been one of the problems, Simona’s early exit from US Open could have also worsened the relationship. Halep lost in the 1st round of the US Open against Ukrainian Daria Snigur.
Halep planned to marry religiously in November
Simona Halep and millionaire Toni Iuruc married civilly last year, and their religious marriage was planned for November 13th, this year, at Casino Sinaia in Romania. Toni Iuruc was the one who announced the wedding party's date and location.
“Thanks for the happy marriage wishes. Yes, the information is correct. In November, we have our wedding in Sinaia. We hope it will be something very special for us, but I don't want to talk any more. It's our private life.
If you want to talk about tennis, please ask Simona. She handles the tennis side, she is the specialist, the family champion,” said Halep’s husband Toni Iuruc when asked about the wedding date. “My husband supports me in my tennis career.
He pushed me to come here to the [Mouratoglou] Academy. For me, it was a big step. It changed everything in my life - to leave home and come and stay here for several weeks for training. I've been happy in my personal life since I met Toni,” Halep said recently about her husband.
Who is Halep’s husband?
Toni Iuruc is a 42 years old Aromanian millionaire who owns six firms, one of them being focused on advertising. One of the things that strengthened the bond between the two lovebirds is the fact that both are Aromanians, a nationality that is linked to the Balkans region and features famous figures like Simona Halep, Gheorghe Hagi – football legend -, and Gheorghe Becali, the owner of FCSB football club.
