Theballerlife.com just ran across an interesting story on how NBA star Andrei Kirilenko’s wife Masha Lopatova gives him permission to cheat on her once a year with a groupie.
So why does she allow him to do this?
The NYPost.com reports:
New Brooklyn Net Andrei Kirilenko is permitted to cheat on his Russian pop-star wife without her crying foul, thanks to a unique “allowance” she grants him.
“What’s forbidden is always desirable. And athletes, particularly men, are susceptible to all the things they are offered,” Masha Lopatova, 34, told the Salt Lake Tribune in 2006 when the 6-foot-9 forward played for the Utah Jazz.
“It’s the same way raising children — If I tell my child, ‘No pizza, no pizza, no pizza,’ what does he want more than anything? Pizza!”
Lopatova said the goal of the short-lived free agency is to nip the Russian-born hoopster’s temptation to sleep around during the seven months he’s on the road.
“Male athletes in this country are extremely attractive,” Lopatova once told ESPN.
“They get chased by women. It’s hard to resist. It’s the way men are by nature. When I’m aware and I let him do it, it’s not cheating.”
Kirilenko, 32, knows the score — he can have s*x with another woman for one night and one night only. Affairs won’t be tolerated.
And the agreement isn’t reciprocal, Lopatova has claimed.
“Of course it was a surprise,” Kirilenko once said.
“I’m not planning to do anything. But she said ‘if you want to do it, you can do it.’ ”
“If something isn’t allowed you, you want to get it,” he added. “But if it is allowed to you, you will not need it.”
It’s unclear whether the Russian-born forward has ever used his allowance.
The couple has been married for 13 years and have two sons, ages 11 and 6.
