Padma lakshmi dating old man
When Padma Lakshmi, a model and young cookbook author, met Salman Rushdie in 1999, she was dazzled by his brilliance.
“For us Indians, he’s like Hemingway,” says Lakshmi, who sat down with PEOPLE and .
“Imagine a young woman in her twenties, who loves books and and who had published her little cookbook and in comes this guy,” she says.
“I mean, he was the best thing that ever happened to me by a mile.
The fact that somebody of that stature and caliber was even interested remotely enough in me to want to take me to lunch was kind of unbelievable.” They met in Central Park for their first date, and ended up in bed together. “I was pretty hooked.” After Rushdie divorced his third wife, (he assured Lakshmi the marriage had long been over), they moved in together in 2000.

Sources, however, tell Page Six that the two have recently become close again. They both love that child so much, they’re putting the past behind them.” The source further said, “She just is being very cautious and private to protect Krishna, regardless of what happens.
Through spending time as a family with their daughter, Krishna, 6, the two have become romantically involved. She’s forgiven the past and giving this a try.” A spokeswoman for Lakshmi had no comment.
“I couldn’t imagine it and I just didn’t want to,” she says. And my grief was something that I didn’t push away. She happened to be staying with me when I went on my first date with him. I think I said in passing that my mother was here and he insisted! “Oh, she encouraged me to on go on the date,” she says with a laugh.
I just became at home in that grief because in that place, I could still be with Teddy.” She had a brief romance with Richard Gere.
I think that’s also because I hid it to a certain degree, not intentionally but you know, it’s weird to talk about your period all the time.
