And that’s the only way I can truly explain it. There’s no reason why — it’s not his fault, and it’s not my fault.” Us Weekly reports how Iglesias and his dad Julio have had a strained relationship throughout the years. Julio even stated the he and his son would never even collaborate on a song together.
Iglesias and Kournikova have been in a relationship for the last 12 years and aren’t in a rush to get married. In a 2012 interview with Parade ,Iglesias said that marriage doesn’t define how much a person is loved by someone. Iglesias explained how, “I’ve never really thought marriage would make a difference. Maybe it’s because I come from divorced parents, but I don’t think you love someone more because of a piece of paper. And nowadays, it’s not taboo to have kids and not be married. What makes a difference is that you’re a good parent, period.”
