Boy toy Nicklas Bendtner is dating Danish royalty
Arsenal striker scores with baroness 13 years his senior…
Things just keep getting better for Nicklas Bendtner. A week after the Arsenal striker was chosen as the Danish Player of the Year, newspaper reports claim he’s found himself a new girlfriend. One with £400m and a castle.
34-year-old Baroness Caroline Luel-Brockdorff is a member of the Danish royal family who recently ended up quids in after a big money divorce settlement from the cousin of James Bond creator, Ian Fleming.
The couple met when she appeared in an episode of what we assume is the Danish equivalent of Changing Rooms (except she was doing up the family castle rather than a two bed semi in Warrington), in which Bentdner was guest-starring. At the time, she was quoted as saying:
He is charming and bright and he’s very willing to help other people. You never know when our paths will cross again.
Since then their paths, and probably a couple of other things, have indeed crossed, with the Danish high-society set heralding the relationship as a ‘fairytale romance’.
Now seemingly set for life with a sugar mommy, perhaps Nicklas will pack in the football career to focus his energies on the finer things in life, like falling out of clubs with his pants round his ankles, and driving into trees.
