Valentino Rossi, big spoon

Dailies, Galleries -


An Italian gossip rag snapped these photos of Valentino Rossi canoodling with his girlfriend, Marwa Klibi, aboard a motor yacht in the Mediterranean. Somehow, we always thought it would be the other way around.

Oggi via MCN

    HFL crosspost with TMZ? Lol

    • evilbahumut

      No doubt!

  • Frosty_spl

    THIS JUST IN!!! Rossi likes to touch boobs. More at 11.

    • Ben Incarnate

      Further evidence that he is, in fact, the man.

      Too bad the photos aren’t in a slightly different order to tell a story.

      Rossi’s had it rough. All the travel, all the racing, all the stress piles up. Finally, he’s able to spend some time relaxing with Marwa, but he’s lost that lovin’ feeling. His mind is elsewhere. (Cue the “blanket peek” photo.) The Little Doctor seems indifferent.

      Marwa won’t have that; her ego crumbles. Rossi must act quickly or risk waiting ten seconds for another gorgeous woman to come along. In spite of her pouting, and paparazzi be damned, he goes for second base. (Cue the groping shots.)

      And they live happily ever after. The end.

        Hysterical dude.

      It’s not really ‘just in’ is it? It wasn’t that long ago (within the last couple of years?) that there was another shot of Rossi on his yacht with at least one topless chick?

  • Hagus

    Would love to be a fly on the wall in the Uccio / Rossi household right about now.

  • evilbahumut

    Not a bad looking lady.

  • Sean Smith

    That guy to his left is gonna be PISSED when he wakes up to find Rossi canoodling a pretty lady.

  • frankieapples

    This is the pic that comes up when you google “beard”

    • Kentaro rides a NRS and a GSA


  • slowtire

    Wonder what their peeking at under the blanket. His or hers?

  • Todd

    I suppose I’ll get flamed for this, but honestly, I’m a little embarrassed for you guys that you even bothered to publish this. This is paparazzi fluff, not journalism.

    I have enjoyed much/most of what’s reported here, so I hope this does not portend of things to come.

    • Denzel

      C’mon Todd, this is just a reflection of the common experience of us moto heads … our italian girlfriends, our languid booze soaked yacht nap parties…

      • Todd

        Common experience indeed! :)

    • Wes Siler

      What it is, Todd, is a rare demonstration of character by a MotoGP racer. If you’d prefer perfectly retouched, identikit shots of the same racer in the same corner time and time and time again, plus quotes that go “i’d like to thank red bull…” then might I suggest

      • Charlie

        +1. Like we need to hear “serious” motorcyclists debating the merits of 200hp street bikes when they would be torched by real rider on a boxer. A beautiful Italian women trumps journalism any day. Plus, most people are here for the name calling anyway.

      • Todd

        I’d prefer neither, as neither is particularly interesting, nor journalistic in nature.

        C’mon, you guys make a lot of hay about the journalistic integrity as the founding principles of HFL, rightly so. But this is fluff, and paparazzi fluff at that. I’m not saying to burn the place down, but just wanted to raise a little flag that stuff like this seems to stray from what it is that makes HFL worthwhile.

        Besides, where’s the story here? “Rich professional athlete spends time lounging in luxury with beautiful girlfriend. More on that after news about Lindsay Lohan’s latest escapade.” ;)

    This is not a good look for HFL. Rossi seems to be enjoying himself though.

  • Kirill

    I’d be doing the exact same thing were I in his position. Just sayin.

    • Denzel

      “position” literally…Same position for him whether spooning his bike or his gf… that’s the discipline of a champion… non stop training

  • Brammofan

    Not impressed with the torque curve on that model.

  • rvltng_bstrd

    I live in hope that not too many people subscribed for this kind of content.

    • Archer

      One here.

  • Gene

    You wouldn’t see Dani Pedrosa getting caught in shots like this… oh wait…

    • Ted

      Pedrobot would break a collarbone just grazing a nipple.

  • Ola

    It’s not motorcycle news just because it’s a motorcyclist. It’s celebrity telephoto stalking and you should be above it.

    I hope neither MCN nor you have to pay anything to Oggi for reposting the pics, the paparazzi shit press needs to be starved for cash. And I sure won’t pay you for a subscription if you keep doing it. You have a steady stream of original, interesting, great content. There’s no need to pad it out with shit like this. Please don’t do it again.

  • Kevin

    I’M ON A BOAT!

    • Sean Smith

      He’s only missing the nautical themed Pashmina Afghan. Whatever that is…

  • Mattro

    totally surprised it wasn’t a dude.

    • Sean Smith

      He’s just hung-over and hasn’t realized who he fell asleep with yet. If it was a guy, this wouldn’t even be a story.


    I wonder is VR is showing his GF the ‘Ducati’ tattoo on his sausage.

  • Archer

    And *whump* just like that, HFL loses the front end and goes down in a shower of sparks. All pretence of a higher journalistic purpose, gone in the click of a mouse. Sad.

    • stephan

      lighten up dudes… its one silly story. The title is “Valentino Rossi: Big Spoon”. Sure, not the most informative 12 seconds i’ve spent on the site but jeez…

  • carbon

    I’m all for boobs.
