Turkish writer Hara denies claims his relationship with supermodel Lima is a publicity stunt
ISTANBULTurkish writer Metin Hara who was seen together with Brazilian top model Adriana Lima on July 10 denied claims that their relationship was a “publicity stunt” on his official social media account on July 13.
Hara, 35, and the Victoria’s Secret angel were first spotted by the media while the two were passionately kissing in Atatürk International Airport in Istanbul on July 10.
On July 11, Hara confirmed on social media that he was in a relationship with Lima, but he did not make any further comments about it.
But debates were triggered after Hürriyet columnist Cengiz Semercioğlu said he did not find the relationship convincing, claiming that it could be a publicity stunt.
Hara denied the claims on social media, saying that their relationship was not a publicity stunt.
“I am following absurd and illogical comments by those who are calling the relationship a PR project,” he tweeted.
Hara also denied claims that he was in preparations of a new TV show for the next season.
“Love won, poem won, heart won this time,” he added.
Hara said he was not rich person, adding that he had no yachts, luxury cars and flats but he was with Lima.
He also said he would not give interviews, noting that he was not in the relationship to promote his books.
Hara is known for authoring books on self-improvement and positive energy. He published his debut book called “Path” in 2014 followed by a trilogy called “Invasion of Love.” The book became a bestseller within three months in Turkey and sold over 100,000 copies.
Lima and Hara arrived in the Aegean province of Muğla’s resort district of Bodrum from Istanbul for a blue cruise at noon on July 10.
The two are reportedly on holiday in Muğla’s Gökova district and will also visit some Greek islands later on.
