MADRID (AFP) — Many women might wish to be in her place, but Spanish pop singer and heart-throb Enrique Iglesias says his girlfriend, tennis champion Anna Kournikova, keeps turning down his proposals of marriage.
"I always try, but she doesn't want to," the Madrid newspaper ABC quoted Iglesias as saying in Santo Domingo, capital of the Dominican Republic, where he arrived last Friday for a concert.
Iglesias, who turns 33 next month, is touring Latin America in support of his English-language album "Insomniac".
The Madrid-born son of veteran crooner Julio Iglesias has been romantically linked to Russian-born Kournikova, 26, for several years.
They were rumoured to be engaged in December after Kournikova was spotted sporting a large diamond ring on her wedding finger.
But earlier this month she told People magazine that a walk down the aisle was not part of her plans. "I'm never getting married. Everything is good," she said.
Iglesias, who made his recording debut in 1995, last month released a compilation of his greatest hits in Spanish, titled "95/08".
