98 world champion with Aimé Jacquet’s French team, Christian Karembeu had a long love story with Adriana Karembeu. The end of their relationship was crippling.

He will go down in the history of French football. Like Zinedine Zidane, Fabien Barthez and Didier Deschamps and Thierry Henry, Christian Karembeu took up residence on the roof of the football world on July 12, 1998, the date on which the French team coached by Aimé Jacquet won the World Cup by beating Brazil in the final (3-0). But this year of celebrations did not stop there for the former FC Nantes player, since he married Adriana Sklenarikova on December 22, 1998. The couple lasted fifteen years before divorcing. And to never speak to each other again.

It is this brutal end that the ex-Slovak model recounted in his autobiography published on May 2. In the middle of a promotional tour for this work entitled “ Free », Adriana Karembeu commented on this ended relationship in the columns of Paris Match. “ Since the day we left each other, we have never spoken or seen each other again. […] I could have (have a child with him), yes, but it didn’t come. I wasn’t ready. » However, the native of Brezno does not regret having lived alongside the Kanak.

“It was not a failure”

And this time she said it in an interview given to Evening Mag. “ Yes, sometimes love wears you out. This does not mean that we have failed in our relationship. We lived together for fifteen years, it was a magnificent love story. I would have loved it to last a lifetime. But maybe we’re not meant to stay with the same person for a lifetime. We grow, we evolve. […] It was not a failure. Fifteen years cannot be a failure. »

In her autobiography, Adriana Karembeu also mentioned several other aspects of her private life, such as her complicated childhood with a violent father, her other love stories, or even her motherhood. Now aged fifty-two, she regularly serves on television as a host. For his part, Christian Karembeu remarried with Lebanese skier Jacky Chamoun. He still holds the position of ambassador and strategic advisor within his former club Olympiakos.
