Horner dating Spice Girl only six months after birth of daughter?

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)

    If Helmut can date sebastian, before during and after the birth of sebastians’ alleged offspring, surely horny horner can spice up his life with a little ginger. A tinge of the ginge in the minge is never a bad thing.

    Always knew he was a slimy toad. Thanks for the confirmation.

    Just confirming that Horner is the slimy toad i always knew he was.

  • Steve

    Come on, this is F1. We don’t need this sort of gossip, lets stick to facts and racing please?

    Steve if you don’t like it go to Autospurt
    This is F1 people and thus what they do is F1 news – like it or not

  • Steve

    This really is not F1 news at all. Why is his private life at all relevant to the sport?

  • http://bryanvcpalacio.weebly.com brianne

    people will enjoy reading this when they’re tired of the nicole-lewis stories

  • Will Powers

    Come on, this isn’t real journalism! Which “spice” flavor was Halliwell in the Spice Girl lineup, and where else have they been canoodling? Does her fuel flow sensor work properly or not?!

  • bobmendon

    A lot of class responses here, totally typical of the collection of bridge trolls that inhabits this site.

  • Bumber

    Yeah get out no one will miss your stupid boring replies

  • Steve

    I imagine a discussion on the definition of irony will be lost on you.

  • Boycottthebull

    An interesting bit of scandal. I guess Horner really is worthy to take Billionaire Bernies place.

    Bobmendon, but you are one of the bridge trolls, your anti-Webber rude remarks are legendary.

  • McLarenfan

    I bet she is wearing the trousers in that relationship unless Christian gets Marko in for the big decisions.

  • Amos James

    Hahahahahahaha bob! How is prison? It’s funny that u feel free to judge others.

    Aren’t you on some sort of ‘list?’

  • Ridhuan Abu Bakar

    that’s ‘scary’ if u ask me lol

    News involving F1 people is F1 news thus will be on GP247

  • haloguy628

    Red Bull is a team of merry scumbags.

  • Hugo Lafreniere

    So his ex is 46 and they just had their first child? That’s waaaayyyy late in life, no?
    Anyway, Horner probably got horny and decided to bang some rich and (somewhat) famous broad. Another testimony to his moral mindset. He’s a shoe-in to replace Bernie now.

  • Hugo Lafreniere

    I tend to agree. People like folks like Kimi, likening him to James Hunt. With all the glamour that’s supposed to revolve around F1, this IS newsworthy IMHO.
    Not because I approve of it what Horner does, but because we, as fans, should have the right to know this stuff and judge the various F1 characters accordingly.
    Keep the dirt coming! :-)

  • D.R.S

    For all you know, his partner of 14 years might be cheating on him and thus the behavior. Maybe not. But don’t judge people from 1 article that you read about em.

  • Hugo Lafreniere

    Maybe. But everything I’ve read elsewhere indicates that Halliwell has been busy trying to get to (and under/on top of) Horner for years. So unless his gf cheated on him while pregnant, chances are he’s the one who fell for Halliwell’s well-travelled butt.
