Gerard Butler & Goga Ashkenazi: Couple In The Works?

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.

    She’s not a billionaire. But the married father of her baby is

  • Nuts

    At this rate, he’s going to be famous for being a playboy of the rich & famous instead of as being an actor.

    Someday, some youngster will see Gerry’s haggard face on a magazine cover and ask their mom, “who is this old guy and why is he hugging that really young actress”. Mother will then sigh and reply, “That’s Gerard Butler. He used to be an actor many, many years ago. Now he just dates for a living.”

    @THE BUTLER DID IT……..AGAIN:

    Think the new Gerry’s Yoda master is a bit better than the real one.. At least this one has a great body!
    *
    If true, perfect match for the Gman… open marriage, money, and one of the highest step in the ladder until now….. Come on Gerry, scr*-w around more and you’re almost at the top!!
    Just a question… is he going after the heiresses right now?

    Oh God… laughable and sad at the same time…

    @Nuts: That’s why it’d be good for your children to start working since a very young age: to get noticed of what work is and get used to it

  • redOctober

    @Merlin:

    …Now he just dates for a living.”

    I agree with Merlin…how sad it sounds, even if it’s just in jest.

  • ugglywoman

    I believe that Gerard deserves this ugly woman. She is also a fortunes’s hunting.

  • redOctober

    @Nuts:

    I was quoting you , Nuts and agreeing with Merlin’s comment at the same time…
    My mind is a bit foggy today. Blame the cold weather.

  • Merlin

    @redOctober:
    I have just the impression Gerard always dated for a living…
    I still think he was talented, maybe he hadn’t the same opinion as me, bloody insecure guy…. :(

    *sorry, I’m in a depressed mood today*

  • Dawn

    Taking this with a huge grain of salt A) because it is from the Post and B) Gerry is paired with just about every woman he looks at by the tabloid press.

  • Dawn

    @sal:

    Gerry didn’t dump her. They were NEVER dating.

  • gossiphound

    Be more impressive if one person got a photo of these two together so indeed grain of salt except he did seem to have a layover in London Sunday night, hmmm.

  • Dawn

    @Now Then:

    Well, it is the Post. I wouldn’t be surprised if they placed Gerry in London when he was really in Scotland or on his way back to LA.

    Thumb up Thumb down +4

    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.
    ====================
    .
    Well we had APJ and Haiti and he was criticized as just pimping for press.
    .
    Last time he was photographed walking Lolita her was harpooned as a bad dog owner for walking her without a leash.
    .
    If he held a baby everyone would be screaming love child.
    .
    I guess he is going to have to continue doing what he loves best… wh*ring. :)

  • gossiphound

    Whenever they put me in moderation that means it will never show up.

    The Daily Mail just had a big feature on Goga Ashkenazi, go to their website June 5, 2010 – she says she wants to conquer the world so would seem like she might be on her own PR drive or the Butler is part of the plan to conquer the world.

  • Di Penates

    Gerald’s looking so desparate these days. These moves for publicity are so pathetic. Is this what non A list actors have to do to promote/sell films now?

    Thumb up Thumb down +5

    MARRY HER G!!!!MARRY HER!!!
    This would be a perfect relationship.
    She can bankroll all his projects and since she doesn’t give a rat’s *ss about marriage vows,he can scr*w whoever he wants on the side.LOL!!
    ======================
    .
    What is that old saying… “It is as easy to marry a rich man as a poor man.” This is a relationship that could work for Gerry. Open marriage would be his cup of tea. A quarterly roll in the hay with the wifey to keep her happy. Big allowance… $5M/month. :)
    .
    @BUTS – Yoda it is… Love that nickname for Gogo or Goga or Gogi.
    .
    @Nuts – Sadly his career is taking a backseat to everything else right now. I can hear BlowAss now… “So do we fit work in anywhere this week? Maybe between 5-7a on Wednesday there is an open spot…” Gerry… “Well I could run over with f*cking club ho #4,039,394. Better not. Any other time?”

  • gossiphound

    Guess who was at the Charity Luncheon we just couldn’t figure out why GB would bother showing up to?

  • the link

    what charity luncheon?? – I don’t know how you guys keep everything he does straight!

    You guys don’t really think is the real deal do you?
    really? This is such a joke.

    Danielle Staub is the one that is creepy looking! Too much botox!

  • Nuts

    So she opens her wallet (and other things)…and it makes Evil Twins happy and she gets to be in the movie biz.

    One hand washes the other…

    This is a playground I can barely comprehend. Do you think he went to Mum’s for absolution after wh*r*ing his way around Serbia, Croatia, Belgard, Moscow, and then Serbia again.

    Are these billionaires and jet-setters now on his Christmas card list?

    *Envisions Poor Blonde Assistant putting address labels on envelopes and slipping in cards with Gerry and Lolita on the front dressed in holiday regalia.*

  • Nuts

    @Nuts:

    Correction: That should read, Serbia, Croatia, Monaco, France, Moscow and then Serbia again.

    Seriously, Alan and Joy.
    It’s called GPS.
    Consider it.

  • How do I put this?…

    See. THIS is why the corny playboy image has to be put on a back burner. I said a while ago that this isn’t going to be a good look in a minute.

    He may be “wooing” her, or he may be just trying to make her a “backer” (Exec producers don’t put in all of their OWN money, if they don’t have to – that’s poor investing, especially in THIS economy). But his reputation now precedes him, he’s being loose in his selection of associates, and everyone is prepared to think the worst. Which is kind of weird because THIS VERY WEBSITE has proven to be SO WRONG in it’s facts/sources many times before (including about Butler), still very few are questioning THIS story, but there you go…

    Hate to say it, but I hope he stays gone for a minute. Just pop back up acting his @ss off in movie stills, not in yet-another-model-in-yet-another-club pics, and he needs to step up or abandon “The French Connection” he and Laurie keep trying to sell us. He’s got damage control to tend to for the last month-and-a-half (make that the last 3+ years)…

  • gossiphound

    My bad that was 2009 they have a picture of her at, she was at the AmFar Gala however this year.

  • gossiphound

    @Stinkylouise: No that is yet a different feature on her. That is the Evening Standard.

    See this is why I am getting a sense even billionaire socialites will use GB for PR. Why is she on a PR drive all of a sudden? She hasn’t got enough money?

  • redOctober
  • gossiphound

    @gossiphound: Okay taking a good look at the photos with that article, the other article she looks very business like and socialitey, it seems for some, money is not enough. I am guessing she looking for fame now. How many owners of a gold mine pose semidressed?

    LOL!! Is she using GB or viceversa?? This woman bought a 28million £ mansion, I mean… it’s like… more than all the houses Gerry can afford!!

  • gossiphound

    Given the men she’s dated in the past he does seem rather out of her league. Isn’t it ironic that both Moran Atias and this woman have dated Flavio Briatore, allegedly. That guy creeps me out but you know, money changes everything.

  • Lisa D.

    I can’t believe how stupid and gullible people have to be in order to believe anything that is written. ROTF. Cannes is the time to find people with money for movie making. HELLO! He’s a businessman as well as an actor. Good lord. And who’s to say they exchanged numbers? The Post? Wow … no wonder Hollywood things Americans are stupid. We’re proving that we are.

    Blast away …

  • Stinkylouise

    “LOL!! Is she using GB or viceversa??”

    I’d say it’s mutual. She wants fame and he wants $$$. Win,win.LOL!

  • redOctober

    @gossiphound:

    Thanks!

  • anon

    Gerry is the new Hugh Grant.

    Hugh went from AA stripper/prostitute to Liz Hurley (or was it at the same time) to Jemima Khan (nee Goldstein)

  • How do I put this?…

    @gossiphound:
    “Why is she on a PR drive all of a sudden? She hasn’t got enough money?”

    She’s got MONEY, she doesn’t have POWER or INFLUENCE. Especially on an international scale. Lottery winners have money, not power/influence, and we wouldn’t know them if the walked down the street. She wants THE WORLD to recognize her, not just the Eastern Hemisphere. And who better to help her with that at the moment than…?

    In other words, like Paris Hilton (Nikki, not as much), The Davis Brothers, etc she’s a billionaire FAMEWH*RE. Notice we rarely Anitha Onassis? Not a famewh*re.

  • Merlin

    @Stinkylouise:
    LOL!!!
    * * *
    This time I don’t think it would be mutual…
    She’s so rich she could buy so many Gerry alikes that.. she doesn’t need the goofy original one.
    Wow… Can you imagine how crazy phannies would go trying to buy her Gerry’s sosias on Ebay?!? A lot better than a Marek’s doll…..
    * * *
    Gerry’s usual paycheck is her weekly salary……Don’t think she’s stooping THAT low…

  • honestly…

    @Lisa D.: “Wow … no wonder Hollywood things Americans are stupid. We’re proving that we are.”
    ———
    I don’t take anything I read on a gossip site all that seriously, and I suspect most of the (sane) posters on here don’t either. And I would hope that “Hollywood” doesn’t think Americans are stupid, considering that Hollywood is IN America and primarily run by Americans! LOL!

  • How do I put this?…

    That should read “Notice we rarely see/hear from Anitha Onassis?”

  • noname

    Speaking of Onassis, why doesn’t Gerry try to get Latsis Jr or Niarchos Jr to invest some money in his movies?
    Both of them are in LA and both studied film and such and they both hang out in the same places Gerry does….
    At least he won’t have to whore himself out to them, they’re men!

  • Stinkylouise

    “Gerry’s usual paycheck is her weekly salary……Don’t think she’s stooping THAT low…”

    Well……..if she’s trying to get a foot in the HW door, she has to start somewhere…..even the bottom of the celeb food chain.LOL!

  • Cora

    @How do I put this?…: I agree with you. I think she’s the one using him for press, not the other way around. She has money, but she doesn’t have Gerry’s fame and she clearly wants fame. And before people jump on me, no I don’t think GB is a victim here. I’m sure in exchange for her enjoying some of his press heat, he gets an infusion of cash into Evil Twins. He wants her money, she wants his fame — win/win. I don’t think he necessarily slept with her, either. He didn’t have to. Press for her in exchange for cash for him. Actual bodily fluids don’t need to be involved for that. Anything is possible, of course, but my guess is, if he was at her place Sunday evening, it was dinner and a business meeting. JMO

  • Merlin

    @Stinkylouise:
    OMG, I can’t stop laughing Stinky!! I’m just picturing Gerry like a giant A-list cupcake!!
    *Merlin sides are hurting*

  • honestly…

    I would like to offer a “thumbs up” to BloAss, and one to whoever coined her nickname.

  • Socialite in the making

    @I have a price on one arm…:

    Well she has nice ones at least and looks like a woman! I’m sure he got a couple more numbers there as why would he stop at just her number?

    Ah! Gerry! When will you entertain us again with your acting for a change! Lol!
