Gerard Butler & Goga Ashkenazi: Couple In The Works?

Gerard Butler reportedly is trying to woo London-based Kazakhstani billionaire Goga Ashkenazi, according to NY Post.

The possible pair met at the 2010 Cannes Film Festival last month and he was spotted visiting her West London mansion last weekend.

A source reveals, “Gerard was spotted chatting up Goga at a party in Cannes and they exchanged numbers.”

FYI: Goga is a close friend of Prince Andrew and is an Oxford graduate with a gold-mining and construction company.

  • Theresa

    It sure looks like Goga (LOL at the name!) has had some plastic work done. Nose and lips for sure. Possibly botox too. I don’t find her pretty at all :(

  • Now Then

    @I have a price on one arm…:

  • Helen

    @Oh jeez…:

  • A little research, JJ

    She’s trying to break into films (as an executive producer and famewh*re) and he has a fledgling production company

    Goga Ashkenazi: Plans to invest in films

    Glamorous billionaire socialite Goga Ashkenazi likes to boast she has ‘a prince on one arm and a billionaire on the other’, referring to her close friendships with Prince Andrew and oil magnate Timur Kulibayev, with whom she has a child.

    But now the flamboyant Kazakh-born and Oxford-educated Goga, 30, is going to need another arm to accommodate her blossoming friendship with movie mogul Harvey Weinstein.

    For a pal of the tycooness – who lives in a £27million pad in Holland Park – tells me she is keen to plough her fortune into the film industry.

    ‘Goga is investing in films,’ reveals the friend. ‘She was in Sardinia with her son last week and Harvey Weinstein flew in for 24 hours to have a meeting with her.’

    Yet a spokesman for Weinstein was rather more coy about the connection, insisting: ‘Harvey was in Sardinia for a board meeting for the Cipriani restaurant chain, along with Giuseppe Cipriani and Flavio Briatore. It seems Goga joined them for lunch one day. It was not a meeting about film investment.’

    But it doesn’t seem as though it will be long until they discuss their shared passion for films. Adds the friend: ‘Goga moves in film circles. In Cannes she was hanging out with producers and people in the film crowd. She likes thrillers.’

  • Helen

    @Now Then:
    Again??? When was the other time?

  • Hannah


  • boring

    Anyone who can “google” can read the stories that state that this woman wants to get into financing films. Why does the NY Post and JJ have to make crap up. The story should read that Gerry is interested in wooing her money.

  • misses

    LOL! It says in the NY Post article that Goga used to date Flavio Briatore (just like Moran Atias!).

  • angel

    @boring: Yeah he probably was just babysitting for her while counting her money in the back.

  • misses

    I googled her too and apparently she’s only 29!!! I would’ve guessed much older, like 38.

  • Pandora

    I usually don’t comment on the way people look, but after looking at this picture of Goga I have to say that she has quite an ugly face. She looks a bit like Cassandra Hepburn, one of Gerry’s previous hookups.

  • @misses

    I think she’s 30 now but yes, I agree that she looks old for her age.

  • long time lurker

    Looks like another non story to me

  • honestly…

    @I have a price on one arm…: “She doesn’t mind showing her t/its either I see.”
    It’s not like it was for a men’s magazine or something, she was just sunning herself. Not a big deal in most of Europe.

  • long time lurker

    @ honestly

    Yep – topless sunbathing is perfectly normal in Europe.

  • Mellifera

    *Hears the sound of bottom of the barrel being scraped*

    I think this has to be the most pointless JJ thread I’ve seen in the last……….well, a long time.

    Gerry, please go stand outside a Starbucks so we don’t have to put up with this crapola.

    You were nice enough to ‘do it for the Phannies’, now you can jolly well think of us.

    Rant over.

  • Ms Anonymous

    HA HA, you wish you could date her, Gerry.

  • Eric

    A gold digger and an ugly cow. meh.

  • Merlin

    Gerry, please go stand outside a Starbucks so we don’t have to put up with this crapola.

  • David Lee Roth

    Just a Gigolo…….

  • honestly…

    The stories about him with APJ in Haiti were much better. Or maybe some nice dog-walking pics? MAybe someone could get a photo of him holding a baby or something equally awwww-inducing. Anything but another random hookup with another random model/heiress/actress/famewh*re! It’s getting predictable.


    Hey beautiful girlies…………..aaahhh another phony match made in heaven.

    Yoda Ashkenazi? Gerry’s dating a East European Jewish Jedi Master?

    …his usual MO, right? …another step up in the food chain?

  • gossiphound

    Gerry was a busy boy in Cannes, and to think he wasn’t even going to go, so he claimed. There you go, his type and mega rich. Great combo. Looks good on the arm and can help finance his production company. Oh so cynical.

  • Fritz the Benevolent


    LOOOL! Not to mention a four star chef, 800 thread count sheets and a doggy throne for Lolita.

  • Nuts


    I mean, SERIOUSLY.

    Why can’t he just have ONE news story about his career. ONE. C’mon Ger. Did ya switch from being an actor/producer to being a male escort for the jet set? Apparently now he’s hot on trail of billionaires & beauties of Eastern Europe and the former Soviet Union?

    *drops head onto desk*

    Just one photo of him doing something than chasing billionaires, partying it up with randoms and creepy looking guys, or doing fake PR “dates”. Just one…

    I fear for MGP.

    I hope Mum keeps a spare bedroom for him in Comrie, just in case…

  • gossiphound

    Bravo JJ got some new news at least.
