Terri Irwin clears up rumours about her love life

Terri Irwin has been linked to a slew of famous men since losing her husband, Steve Irwin, 15 years ago. 

But the 57-year-old conservationist insisted on Friday that she’s not ‘very, very single’, she is staying that way, despite recently being linked to Hollywood actor John Travolta, 67. 

‘I’ve stopped counting all the men I am supposed to have had flings with …the more recent one is John Travolta, which is new to the mix,’ she told The Courier Mail.

‘But you know, and I keep saying this, and I think maybe 15 years later people are finally starting to believe me, Steve was it for me. 

‘That’s just the way it is. I had a big, big love and it was enough to last a lifetime,’ she added.

Terri has been forced to deny tabloid reports she’s dating actor Russell Crowe, 57, for years.

She has repeatedly denied the rumours, saying they are just friends.

She told Access Hollywood in 2017: ‘In all honesty, he (Russell) and Steve became friends many years ago, and after Steve passed, you find out who your true friends are. And Russell has been very loyal as a great friend.’

In May last year, Woman’s Day linked Terri to cricketer Shane Warne, 52.

According to the publication’s unfounded report, she ‘secretly fell in love’ with Shane after meeting him on the set of I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here! in 2016

‘As soon as she heard Shane Warne speak, Terri had butterflies,’ an ‘insider’ alleged. 

‘He was funny, charming, and Australian as they come – she was instantly transported back to when she met her husband,’ the ‘source’ added. 

That same month, Terri laughed off false rumours she is dating entertainment reporter Richard Wilkins, 67.

‘So far it’s 25 men I have had a relationship with. I have kept track because it’s kind of funny,’ she told The Courier Mail of the never ending rumours. 

The Wildlife Warrior continued: ‘Let’s see, apparently it’s all the Hogans – that’s Paul and Hulk, Russell Crowe, and most recently, it’s Richard Wilkins.’

The mother-of-two hasn’t dated anyone publicly since her late husband Steve tragically died in a freak stingray accident in 2006. He was 44.
