After a series of bust-ups, their romance is on hold


Cheeky Girl Gabriela Irimia and fiance Lib-Dem politician Lembit Opik haven’t seen each other for weeks and their romance is now ‘on hold’.

‘Gabby is very stressed and just wants to be on her own,’ a source told the News Of The World.

‘She is very unhappy and has been crying a lot. It’s just got too much lately.

‘Lembit has been frantically texting her but she doesn’t want to see him or talk to him.’

The 42-year-old MP – who was previously engaged to weathergirl Sian Lloyd, 50 – turned up the home Gabriela, 25, shares with twin sister Monica in Rye last week in effort to patch things up but she wasn’t interested.

The unlikely couple met on C5’s All Star Talent Show in 2006 and Opik proposed earlier this year in Rome.

Their estrangement has been caused because Gabriela accepted Lembit’s proposal when she should have been in mourning for her grandmother, insists her mum.

‘It’s not a break-up,’ Margit Semal tells Metro. ‘It’s painful for Lembit but I think he’s mature enough to know that she wants time on her own.’
