“The English Patient” Ralph Fiennes Irish girlfriend broke up with him and implied he is “sex obsessed” just days before reports about him having a mile high romp in the loo with a Qantas flight attendant surfaced.
According to the Daily Mail, his girlfriend, interior designer Sirin Lewenden, was not surprised when she read in the papers about Ralph Fiennes and his little escapade. She ended their relationship citing Fiennes’ “wandering eye”, “moodiness” and “constant demands for sex”.
“Sirin found it quite exhausting,” an unnamed friend of the actor said to the Mail.
“She likes a bit of fun but also likes a much simpler life. In the end she had had enough.”
“They split because of Ralph’s wandering eye and his constant demands for what might best be described as unconventional sex. He could also be prone to the odd mood swing.”
“Now Ralph is single and clearly enjoying it. It was with no great surprise that Sirin heard of the sexual encounter on the flight,” the friend of the British actor said.
Fiennes, 44, allegedly followed Lisa Cherie Robertson, 38, to the toilet on a long-haul Qantas flight from Australia to India on January 24.
The Qantas snitch crew members waited outside the toilet to bust the amorous couple. Robertson was accused of having sex with Fiennes and has been suspended without pay even though she rejected the accusations.
“While conversing with Mr Fiennes during my break, I expressed a need to go to the toilet. I entered it, he followed me and entered the same toilet,” a Sydney newspaper quoted her as saying.
“I explained to him that this was inappropriate and asked him to leave.
“Mr Fiennes became amorous towards me and, after a short period of time, I convinced him to leave the toilet. I left a short time later. At no time did any crew member come to my assistance,” the statement wrote.
“At no time were any other customers aware of this incident. At no time did I put the Qantas name or reputation in jeopardy,” Robertson added.
Although she admitted to have had several conversations with Fiennes, she said she was just doing her job.
“This is common practice on long flights to build a rapport with passengers and converse with them during the flight,” Ms Robertson said in her statement.
In a statement to Qantas management, she spoke about her past as well saying she was a police officer for 14 years before joining Qantas in September, 2004. She claimed she had been repeatedly commended for her service as a flight attendant.
A Qantas spokesman said: “All we can do is confirm that a flight attendant was stood down following an onboard incident.”
According to the Daily Mirror, Robertson’s father defended his daughter and said she has been savaged by “jealous” workmates who are “probably ugly as a hat full of a**holes”. That’s a good one we’ll remember!
He added: “Lisa just does her job. If someone wants a coffee and biscuits, she looks after them. She’s not a bad looking girl. If you do the right thing people take a liking to youNote the date on this article may be incorrect due to importing it from our old system.
