Balthazar Getty disappoints Sienna Miller with gift of 7k bicycle

Balthazar Getty made the mistake of giving his new love Sienna Miller a rather unromantic gift. In his boyish heart he thought it was a sweet gesture, but the $7,000 titanium bicycle built for two he purchased for Sienna wasn’t exactly the sparkling token of love she was hoping for. Sienna was upset at the gift and said to have been hoping that Getty, who is still married to the wife of his four children, was going to propose marriage instead of present her with a bike:

Sienna Miller, 26, was less than thrilled when her boyfriend… Balthazar Getty, 33, proudly presented her with a specially built titanium tandem. “Balthazar spent nearly $7,000 on a custom Seven Cycles bicycle built for two and thought he could charm Sienna with it,” a source close to the actress explains.

“But she was not impressed. In fact, Sienna shrieked at him for being selfish and unromantic. The bottom line is that nothing is going to satisfy her until a marriage proposal comes out of his mouth. Sienna is getting impatient!”

[From Star Magazine, print edition, October 27, 2008]

When you get a gift from a significant other that isn’t what you were expecting you’re supposed to smile and act like you like it. If this story is true, calling a guy unromantic and not appreciating his misguided attempts is just going to discourage him from trying again in the future.

Getty would have done well just to have gone to his local jewelers and bought Miller a bracelet or a necklace from the display case. She doesn’t strike me as the outdoor type. She smokes and I don’t think we’ve ever seen her riding a bike or jogging. She doesn’t mind going au natural, but enjoying laying around in an exotic locale doesn’t exactly translate to being capable of appreciating a high end bike.

If Sienna really is expecting a proposal she shouldn’t hold her breath. Neither Getty nor his wife of eight years, Rosetta Millington, has yet filed for divorce. There were stories over a month ago that Millington told Getty that if he wanted a divorce he could file for it himself. Maybe he was still testing the waters with Sienna to see if it was worth it to plunge in, because we haven’t heard about him filing yet.

Getty and Miller are currently on vacation together.

    Maybe the bike is a symbol of his intentions? As in: on yer bike, Sienna.

  2. dr.grrl says:

    she’s probably confused because she IS the town bicycle….everybody gets a ride!! :mrgreen:

  3. Baholicious says:

    @dr.grrl – LOL, you beat me to it!

  4. Pammy says:

    Oh my goodness, what an egotistical duo! Let’s hope they don’t wear biking helmets! Perhaps, if they do fall off of this bicycle built for two and hit their heads, it might knock some sense into them! Although, I doubt it. To tell the truth, I’d rather see the two of them speeding, through heavy traffic on his motorcycle after having a few drinks!

  5. Kaiser says:

    *giggle* Town bicycle, that was good.

    So Sienna got a bike instead of a nice piece of jewelry? Cry me a friggin’ river, Sienna. :roll:

    how can he propose marriage he is still married and i don’t think he will yet because he will loose a lot of money and that is all getty is worried about, not his wife or children, and if he thought so much about miller he would not care about the money, they both make enough.I am waiting for mrs getty to find a real hot man this time but a sulky boy.

  7. Jinxy says:

    Personally I don’t think she gives a shit about Balty or his wife or his kids or his career. She has a C list career that depends on her shedding her clothes, she’s not that talented and isn’t paid that much money, and offers a fewer and farther between. This affair has ruined her career stateside. She’s looking at the Getty fortune, nothing less will do.

    He’s not going to risk his fortune, and his 4 children’s Getty legacy for a well known skank. Sorry she’ll die of old age before he marries her.

  8. kate says:

    if i were her i would not be in such a hurry to marry a man who cheated on his first wife.

  9. ME says:

    She better get the idea of marriage out of her head because his wife is not letting that ahole get away that easy. Why buy the cow if you can have the milk for free ,in this case why buy the bike if you can ride it for free.

  10. devilgirl says:

    Maybe the gift was given in order to keep the space between her legs busy with something (other than another man) in his absence.

  11. MB Travis says:

    Wow! A negative and farfetched story about Sienna Miller! He should have given her a scarlet “A” to wear instead, right? Now let’s get back to telling Madonna she’s too old to be sexy.

  12. Nova says:

    Its symbolic…He’s saying…Sienna, you’re like this bike…good only to ride around short distances…but NEVER to go the long haul on.

  13. chatkat says:

    No, Balthazar should be wearing the scarlet A, and Sienna is totally the town bike. Once B’s divorce is final, she will leave him for another married man, because she likes unavailable men and thinks it is fun to break up families. Karma is a b!tch, and so is Sienna.

  14. Kelly says:

    Aww the poor little slut didnt get her marrige proposal so sad oh wait no its just funny!!!! :P :P :P :P

  15. Michele says:

    Why should he buy the cow if he gets the milk for free? I wonder just how long this relationship is gonna last. Since cheaters NEVER change.

  16. Musey says:

    These two deserve each other. Sienna Miller is a selfish, egotistical pill, and he’s a cheating bastard.

    I hate when people always put all the blame for cheating on the woman, when it takes two people to do it, but in this case, I just think they both deserve to be miserable.

  17. singsing says:

    Would all the people whining how none of this is Sienna’s fault speak up now.

    “Whaaaaaa!!! I want a ring!!!”

    Whiney, manipulative, clinging, desperate,spoiled brat!

  18. Margie says:

    I don’t see this relationship lasting for much longer. Getty is an idiot, but he’s not going to divorce his wife. Miller will eventually get tired of being second and move on.

  19. rockyroad says:

    Bathazar seems to be going thru some mid-life crisis, when the honeymoons over and all the sex drys up he’ll be looking for his wife and kids and miller? well! the girls a slut, one married man after another and she really needs a boob job!

  20. Whatever. It doesn’t sound like either of them is mature enough to maintain a healthy relationship. I think some therapy might be in order for the both of them.
