Did Gerard Butler dump his girlfriend after remembering how much he loves strange?

Maybe it’s my old-school Gerard Butler fan-girl coming out, but I’ve been wary of Butler’s girlfriend Madalina Ghenea since they started dating last year. While I do like (appreciate?) the idea of Gerard having a steady girlfriend after bingeing on strange for YEARS, Madalina gives me weird vibes. She looks like a cross between Oksana Grigorieva and Elisabetta Canalis, and by that I mean she looks sort of drag-queeny and like she’s had a lot of work done. I have other derogatory things to say, but I’ll abstain lest I admit to myself that I still kind of care about Gerard despite my better judgment.

Anyway, after Madalina and Gerard seemed connected at the hip for a few months, she hasn’t been anywhere near Gerard as he promoted Olympus Has Fallen. Could it be that Gerard finally dumped her?

Gerard Butler won’t be hearing wedding bells anytime soon, because sources say the actor is growing tired of his current girlfriend, Madalina Ghenea! Butler, 43, thought he had found The One with the 24-year-old model, but he’s come to realize that he has an unquenchable thirst for women, and isn’t the type to settle down for good.

“He would like to have a family, but he loves women too much,” says a pal. While no breakup has been confirmed, Gerard was seen flirting up a storm while on his movie’s promotional tour.

[From Star Magazine, print edition]

“He has an unquenchable thirst for women, and isn’t the type to settle down for good” = “He has an unquenchable thirst for [randoms, strangers, anything with a pulse, Real Housewives, whoever he meets in a Porto-potty], and isn’t the type to [remember their names].” Fixed! Gerard does what he does and it is incredibly gross and he’s past the age where this womanizing shtick can be passed off as some kind of “phase”. This is who he is. He’s not even a serial monogamist like George Clooney. Gerard just loves strange. And being with the same woman (?) for months at a time is not part of his agenda.

Some photos of Gerard in England this week – he looks exhausted! He must be hittin’ it with strange women every single night.

    Ahhhh… the seductive siren call of the port-o-potty.

  2. lisa2 says:

    He better be careful. He’s going to get something he can’t get rid of.

  3. Joanna says:

    wow, he looks horrible! he could benefit from some botox

  4. Lolly says:

    I think he just likes sex with strangers period. Doesn’t matter if they’re male or female. Dude has an..interesting(gross) dating history..

  5. Rumorhasit says:

    He’s looking rough again. Even though hes been all over the place promoting that movie, hope he’s not back on the pills.

  6. GoodCapon says:

    What do you mean by strange? Strange women? Strange-looking women? Fetishes (if they can be called strange)?

    • Inari says:

      I think it just means random hook-ups. So, it could be ordinary one-night stands or random to the point of not remembering the next day if she was a pale platinum blonde or a black woman with a green mohawk (just to push is to extremes)… Or both.

  7. Jeeves says:

    Dude should get a laser peel and some tox.

  8. m says:

    GB likes Brunettes.

  9. Jada says:

    I’m not surprised they are over with. I read somewhere he only talked about her because it was good for his fanbase. Why do pretty girls think botox and surgery will make them more marketable? It didn’t help her looks at all.

  10. Jae M. says:

    Most on the blogs never bought into this in the first place. IMO it was set up to make him look like he was settling down, mostly for the benefit of the PFK release. I agree with “weird vibes” re the underwear model. IMO she looks like a tranny. No one should destroy themselves with this much surgery. It never turns out well.

  11. Heather H says:

    I never realized how pretty his eyes are (without the bags).

  12. RHONYC says:

    She looks like a cross between Oksana Grigorieva and Elisabetta Canalis


    i was gonna say a cross between Angie Jolie & Eve Mendes.

    when he was on Howard he spoke about how smitten he was with her and fly to Europe on a whim to see her after they met briefly at a party and talked till dawn.

    i like Gerry from that interview…hope he finds a true steady. 😉

  13. Amanda says:

    Ew. This guy must have every STD known to mankind. He’s handsome, but I wouldn’t sleep with him in a million years.

  14. Madpoe says:

    Anyone else just shuttered seeing a 67-70 year old Butler bangin’ anything that moves. Gross.

  15. dweeb says:

    Pathetic how some people can throw VD insults at an actor like that or anyone for that matter. Those who do, wait until you “catch” something. Get over it. That being said, YES HE BROKE UP WIHT THAT!!!!

    • Polk8dot says:

      The VD comments are not insults – they are simple statements of fact, as we see or suspect it to be.

      Nobody is throwing STD ‘accusations’ or gossip at nice, respectable, ‘romantically stable’ people, whether A or D listers.
      The STDs are just a part of life for some, especially when their lifestyles are those of hounddogs, chasing and nailing anything that moves.
      In Gerry’s case this is a well deserved remark. BTW, nobody is saying he actually does have them, we SUSPECT or EXPECT he does, based on his history of unsavory hookups. No one has read his medical records – that’s why we talk about it here, on a gossip site, instead of on CNN. Have you gotten here by mistake, and not noticed where you are?

  16. kiki says:

    They are most probably over. I think I read somewhere that she was supposed to be linked to a football player (soccer player)about two- three weeks ago.
    Regarding Madalina, she is from my hometown and only a little younger than I am so here is what I know of her:
    – her body is gorgeous, no work done there, she has been working as a lingerie model since she was 15;
    – her face has had some work done (terrible lips) – but that’s the femme fatale look the Italians love (bleah);
    – she is used to be quite book-smart actually, the highschool she went to was very good, and very difficult to be accepted into… but then she started modelling and was making nice money in Italy so she attended only the minimum number of hours so she can graduate. She’s no genius, obviously, but she is quite articulate and sweet, seems very down to earth (I saw a few of her interviews for the Romanian televisions);
    – whoever is advising her is terrible: DiCaprio and then Gerard Butler just for the sake of fame are horrible people because for sure they know very well what these guys are all about.

    Rant over 🙂

    Most of the stories about him with women are just that. He only has to be seen with a woman and everyone has it they are sleeping together. He really only loved one woman and lost her years ago.

    • Jan says:

      He once said in an interview that he has only truly ever loved one woman and admits it was his own stupidity that lost her. I have read that they have become friends again and he visits her when he goes home.

    • Scot says:

      And he goes to the church every time he is in Scotland and cleans it afterwards with that woman he really only loved!

  18. Rena says:

    It was never a real relationship. She was only with him for what she could get just as she was with Leonardo DiCaprio and Adrien Brody before Gerard Butler. This is a woman who has admitted having sex with a married man when she was 14 so that tells you the kind of person she is. She’s also a compulsive liar. I don’t believe Gerard Butler has had as many women as some have claimed. He even said himself in an interview that there have been tweets from girls claiming to be having sex with him at that moment and he has been sitting at home with friends. Anybody can claim things on twitter or facebook but it doesn’t mean it’s true.

    • C.Lynn says:

      “He even said himself in an interview that there have been tweets from girls claiming to be having sex with him at that moment and he has been sitting at home with friends.”

      Oh Rena, he never said any such thing in ANY interview. I see the Loonies from Just Jared arrived. There is no long lost love from Scotland that he’s pining over and he has never complained about tweets. Lies, lies, lies.

      It’s time one of you actually produced one of these mysterious interviews about the Scottish soul mate and false tweets, that no one else has ever heard of or seen. So far, all you’re doing is making things up and spreading these false stories on every gossip site you can find. Yet you never provide proof or links to your claims.

      • Lulu.T.O. says:

        C.Lynn: Seriously, who cares? It’s not like he is immune to gossip as a celebrity, not should he expect to be.

      • Helen says:

        Hi did say that in an interview just a couple of weeks ago but I can’t remember where it was. I have heard that before though.

      • C.Lynn says:

        No, Helen, there is no such interview. One of the loonies at Just Jared made up the story. She has never been able to provide a single link or a quote, every time people have asked her.

  19. Addison says:

    This woman is 24? I would have guessed more like 34. I thought she was closer to his age.

    As far as Butler is concerned, it is too bad he is who he is then, if this is true.

    • Rena says:

      She claims to be 24 but this could be another one of her many lies. Someone posted on her face book a comment that said “how am I in my thirties and you are in your twenties yet we were in the same class at school?” It apparently was taken down very quickly.

      • kiki says:

        She’s about 26. I am positive because she is two or three years younger than me – same highschool, for real :). I agree, she looks way older because of all the things she has done to her face.

    • Ancsa says:

      Yeah, I thought she was in her mid thirties (makeup obviously helps on other pics to look younger).
      No doubt she is very pretty and is using her looks to get ahead by dating a string of famous men… Whether GB dumps her or not this time, when he does, she is not going to mourn him for long as no doubt he won’t be her last famous bf…

  20. Miss M says:

    Phew! There is some love for Butler today, 🙂

  21. KellyinSeattle says:

    When will his 15 minutes be up?

  22. Lucy says:

    I work for a British magazine and Butler turned up for his interview over 50 minutes late and stopped the interview twice to go off and do lines of cocaine. Sadly, that man is a mess and needs to go sort himself out.

    • Martha says:

      Stop telling lies. I work with drug addicts and there is no way he is using.

      • Scot says:

        Yes he doesn’t use and goes to the church!

      • Lucy says:

        I’m sorry you think it’s a lie. I am honestly repeating what staff members said. And as for you being able to clearly tell he’s not using, you can have a cocaine habit for 10yrs+ before it becomes seriously uncontrollable. Ask some of my relatives.

    • Lala says:


  23. Jae M. says:

    It seems reports of the breakup may be a little premature. She is at the Rome premiere tonight wrapped around his throat like a boa constrictor. It’s quite sad really. She looks extremely desperate.

  24. taxi says:

    OT question- Are the filled lips soft like real lips?

    Or to put it another way, could a blindfolded man tell if the new lips he’s kissing were real or filler-inflated?(Or blindfolded woman/she’s..)

    • Ancsa says:

      No, you can’t tell the difference if it was done properly and it’s not gone up hugely

  25. Mel says:

    As if anybody would ask to stop an interview so they can take drugs! You are a liar!

  26. Wicked says:

    I don’t know…I used to be madly in love with him, but lately, not so much!Over-exposure! Go to work and go home! It’s hard looking at his movies now-a-days without thinking of who he is un real life. Less Is More, REALLY!!!
