Summertime Sadness for Lana Del Rey
Things are going badly for Lana Del Rey. Last week she was too sick to fly to Europe for a promotional tour, and now rumours are circulating that her boyfriend’s been cheating on her with Rita Ora’s sister!
Adding Insult to Injury
Lana, 29, will be shocked when she sees the pictures of her man, Francesco Carrozzini, getting uncomfortably close to Rita’s sister Elena Sahatciu. Francesco, 32, can be seen delicately touching Elena’s face as she laughs and beams at him across the table as the two sat together in a New York restaurant. To add insult to injury, the eatery is where Francesco, a photographer, had taken Lana just five days previously – and it seems he used the same moves then too! Slippery Francesco was even dressed in a similar manner, sporting a blue top with his sleeves rolled up as he looked all doe-eyed at his lunch date. Elena, who’s Rita’s music manager, was clearly smitten with him as she tried to keep a low profile in a black shirt and red fedora.
While there’s no concrete evidence anything untoward was going on, a close friend of the two felt the need to come forward and defend the clandestine meeting. An insider told NYDailyNews.com: “They’re like brother and sister, they hadn’t seen each other for a long time and they were just excited to see each other.”
Lana’s Medical Mystery
Carrozzini, who’s been dating Lana since July, would have crossed paths with Elena several times. He’s photographed Rita lots over her career including the glamorous Roberto Cavalli Autumn/Winter 2015 campaign. One sign that suggests things may not be going too well between Lana and her beau is the fact that she was spotted house hunting in New York the day after Elena and Francesco were pictured together, even though she’d been living with him in his Greenwich Village home for the past two months. Her dramatic love life caps a disappointing period for Del Rey, who was apparently too ill to promote her latest music. Her record label Polydor/Universal said in a statement: “For medical reasons independent of our will, the artist has been forced to cancel all promotional activities planned in Europe over the coming days.” Hopefully the Summertime Sadness singer won’t be nursing a broken heart too.
