UPDATE: 02/19/2013: Osi Umenyiora is now set to marry the former Miss Universe, after getting engaged recently while at dinner in Atlanta. Umenyiora and Lopes are set to marry in 2014, though no further information is currently available.
Congratulations to the happy couple.
Osi Umenyiora may be putting together an all-time resume. While the volume of significant other’s doesn’t rival fellow New York athletes like Jeter or Sanchez, the top caliber quality of girlfriends may surpass them both. Osi Umenyiora was previously in a relationship with Victoria’s Secret Model Selita Ebanks
One may think it’d be impossible to top himself, but it appears he has. In a report first published by The New York Post on November 29, it appears that Osi Umenyiora’s girlfriend is now Leila Lopes, who also happens to be the reigning Miss Universe. The couple was reportedly seen “hiding out,” in the back of a steakhouse which was hosting a farewell party for Lopes’ Miss Universe title which is about to expire. The Post also has a source saying, “Insiders are hoping she sticks around New York until after the playoffs, to keep his good luck coming,”
Lopes, who entered the competition representing Angola, won the competition at age 25 over runner up Miss Ukraine Olesya Stefanko. She’s been in New York repeatedly the last few months, and the Post reveals this isn’t her first brush with a famous New Yorker. The Post notes that Lopes was previously the subject of Russell Simmons affection in the summer of 2012 when they reported Simmons laying heavy game on Lopes. Simmons did not attend her farewell to Miss Universe party, but did reportedly send her flowers.
In a battle of Osi vs. Russel, I gotta go with Russel. I feel like even though Osi could destroy him physically, Russel has more clout than any of us could ever imagine.
