Why do you think it's from last year?
I'm going purely by his jewelry and hair length (and to a lesser extent the Adidas jacket), plus the fact that Peshkova was pictured with him in Miami late 2009.
Did they break-up? I'm saying this because I'm not taking him for serious when he says he's been single for 6 month now and all the rest ...
IMO Marat's words can be taken at face value here, as to my knowledge he's never prevaricated like that about any of his girlfriends before. Even in the Mariano Zabaleta interview
, he did at least answer "kind of" when asked if he had a girlfriend (was it Osipova at the time?). I imagine if he really
wanted to keep something super-private and out of the media glare, he'd say something unequivocal like "That belongs to my private life, no comment".
I don't know, I'm just speculating.
