French soccer star Adil Rami has gushed about ‘wonderful’ girlfriend Pamela Anderson but told DailyMail.com that the couple are not yet engaged.
The athlete was spotted shopping at famed department store Kitson Kitross in Los Angeles on Wednesday, days after his stunning World Cup win.
Rami, 32, who has been dating the blonde beauty, 51, since last summer, said reports of their engagement are ‘not true’ but admitted he is totally smitten with her.
‘She’s wonderful,’ he said. ‘We’re staying in Beverly Hills for the next few weeks, I have to go to on a quick trip to Las Vegas tomorrow so I’m doing a little shopping.’
‘I see a lot of things she would like,’ he teased.
No one in the store batted an eye when the strapping 6’3′ sports star took off his shirt along the back wall to try on a popular Champion tank top.
He purchased shirts and other summer essentials before leaving.
Kitson Kitross owner and retail strategist Fraser Ross told DailyMail.com: ‘The more time he spent here, people began catching on who he was and wanting photos. He couldn’t have been nicer, taking time to pose with fans.’
Rami played a defender position with French national team Les Bleus who defeated Croatia in a historic 4-2 victory at Luzhniki Stadium in Moscow on July 15.
France had not won a World Cup since 1998 and the team is now being treated like national heroes.
It is estimated that a staggering 3.2 billion people watched the final, or 46.4 per cent of the global population.
‘This is so nice,’ Rami said. ‘In France, no one on our team could even walk around on the street, we’d be totally mobbed. It’s good to have a break.’
It was reported that Rami met Anderson at the Monaco Grand Prix last May, but an associate of the soccer star said the two first met in LA.
Anderson was seen supporting her beau at the World Cup during France’s match against Belgium in St. Petersburg last week.
The former Baywatch actress recently revealed to DailyMail’s Piers Morgan in March she was ‘in love’ with Rami, who is based in Marseille, France.
‘He is fantastic. I love him of course. I probably should not be talking about it. I am so bad. I have no filter. It is what it is. I am happy in France.’
The couple appears to be dividing their time between Los Angeles and Marseille, where he has twin sons (born in 2016) with ex-girlfriend Sidonie Biemont.
