reports Enrique Iglesias has given his tennis star girlfriend Anna Kournikova
a $88,000 friendship ring. "I believe in settling down but I donít think
you have to be married to someone to be in love with them," Iglesias said.
"I just believe in being in love." As for reports linking him to other
women, Enrique insisted, "Iíve read lots of stories about girls Iím supposed
to have slept with and itís just not true. At least they didnít say I was
a bad lover or had a small penis. These girls are attracted to fame. Like
being a politician, fame brings a lot of power." Read more.

and said, 'Anna, it's not me, it's you. You just don't do it for me anymore.
This relationship just can't work when I'm adored by 16-year-old girls
and you keep getting beaten by 16-year-old girls. It's embarrassing'."
