vladimir putin might be tapping this lady

This is gymnast Alina Kabaeva (Алина Кабаева).

Vladimir Putin may or may not be sexin'/an affair with/marrying her.

Daaaaaaamn. Radar Online says this story is basically bullshit and part of some heavy behind-the-scenes craziness where the FSB [formerly KGB] are jerking around Putin and his peoples Alexander Lebedev, the Russian Rupert Murdoch whose smaller paper published the story and is a good friend of VP's.

Crazy, crazy, crazy.

Also. Rhythmic gymnastics is some seriously pointless athletics, but it's fun to watch.
