Its usually difficult to find a committed partner after one has become very famous and well established and many celebrities across the globe have to deal with this reality in every day of their lives.
Nigerian heavyweight boxing champion, Anthony Joshua, is faced with the same reality and he has opened up on his challenges in finding “someone to grow with”. A love partner to be precise.
In an interview with The Sun, Anthony said, “I think you can date and still be a successful sportsman but it’s hard to find a balance and I would have to compromise — which I’ve not felt able to do. My dad never gave me advice about much. But in terms of relationships what I have learnt and what I tell my son is, it would be nice to find a high school sweetheart and to grow together because as you get older you get set in your ways.
Although many parents see dating at high school level as awkward Anthony Joshua is already advising his young son to do so.
Still speaking on relationship, he said; ”For me to have a relationship now means I would have to compromise and change my ways and I don’t know how easy that would be for me to do. So I do date but I don’t get to the stage where I actually put anyone into that position. I don’t have a girlfriend and I haven’t had one for a while. But as I get older I do think it would be nice to have someone, someone to grow with as well — but I honestly haven’t found anyone.”
Celebrities even after a long wait and are able to settle down, end up divorcing because those partners either came into their lives for money or fame and not for their love. This has made it a lot more difficult for some of them to tie the knot.
