Red Bull Team Principal Christian Horner has reportedly split up with his long time partner a mere six months after the birth of their first child.

We reported late last year that the 40-year-old Red Bull team boss and his partner Beverley were expecting to be parents.

“I’m very happy about it – it’s going to mix things up!” Horner said at the time.

On Saturday, publishing a paparazzi photo of Briton Horner on a walk with Geri Halliwell, the British tabloid The Sun said the pair are “dating”.

41-year-old Halliwell, better known as Ginger Spice of the former British pop supergroup Spice Girls, was seen “walking arm-in-arm” with Horner near her London home recently.

The Daily Mail reports that Halliwell has now been telling friends that ‘Christian’s the one,’ although she is notoriously unlucky in love, once publicly admitting, “I think we all know that relationships haven’t been one of my strong points.”

If true, it could mean that Horner has split with his partner of 14 years, Beverley Allen, just six months after their daughter Olivia was born.

The Daily Mail report adds: “It must undoubtedly be a difficult time for the Formula 1 figure. He had been with Beverley for 14 years. Six years his senior, she had been by his side throughout his astonishing ascent while he acted as a stepfather to her two sons from a previous relationship, Kieron, now 25 and Liam, 21.” (GMM)
