Indian Cricketer Virat Kohli Girlfriend Model Izabelle Leite
Izabelle Leite has now shifted to Mumbai and been visiting Delhi frequently over the past six months (and this, according to her own tweets).
She was termed as the “mystery woman” in the cricketer’s life when the paparazzo spotted the vice-captain of the Indian team on a shopping trip with her on Orchard Road in Singapore on June 7 last year.
The pictures of Virat carrying her hand-bag as she hopped from one shop to the other went viral on the internet. The media too went to town screaming about Virat Kohli’s new “secret girlfriend”.
But with Izabelle Leite's face gaining prominence in Mumbai’s modelling circuit, the truth finally came to light. Izabelle Leite is in love with Virat Kohli. She has even shifted base to Mumbai to be with him.
Izabelle Leite has been a keen follower of the Indian cricket team and even tweets about the times when she goes to meet Virat,” said a friend of Izabelle Leite. In her Twitter profile, Izabelle Leite regularly tweets about the matches and cheers for India.
“They met for an ad shoot in Singapore and they have been together ever since. After they were caught on the roads of Singapore, Virat Kohli takes a lot of care so that they are never seen in public. Izabelle Leite was there when Yuvraj Singh made his comeback in Chennai,” added the friend.
Interestingly, though Virat Kohli loves to take her shopping and she frequents Delhi to meet the cricketer, Virat Kohli still describes her as a “close friend” to his cricketing pals.
