Terri Irwin has denied rumours she is in a relationship with actor Russell Crowe. She even revealed she hasn’t dated anyone in the 10 years since her husband and wildlife expert Steve Irwin died.
For long, there have been rumours that Crowe and Terri are a couple. However, both have denied the allegations on numerous occasions — stating they are just good friends.
In an interview with the “Access Hollywood” show, Terri, 52, explained there was only platonic feelings between the two. She said, “We will keep it all just as friends”, reports dailymail.co.uk.
After Steve’s death from a stingray attack, Crowe publicly campaigned alongside the Irwin family to help safeguard the Steve Irwin Wildlife Reserve.
“In all honesty he and Steve became friends many years ago and after Steve passed, you find out who your true friends are,” Terri said.
“Russell has been very loyal as a great friend.”
The mother of two explained she hadn’t been in a relationship since losing her husband, describing herself as “lonely for Steve but not a lonely person”.
“I haven’t dated anyone in the 10 years since we lost Steve, just because I feel a connection still with Steve,” Terri said.
“When you take those vows and say as long as we both shall live — I really don’t think I would have married if I met Steve.”
Her daughter Bindi, 18, also said on the programme on Friday she sees her mother as “still married to dad”, explaining: “If you’ve found your soulmate you don’t really want to move on, and mum had her soulmate.”
