Padma lakshmi dating teddy forstmann
"I remember the phone call and I remember asking what time did he actually die because the night before I had an alarm bell go off in my head and I called over to his house to say I can come over right away and I felt like, I thought, you know..." she trailed off, her emotions getting the best of her, while describing the incidents following her ex-boyfriend's death.

Lakshmi dated him for a while before meeting Forstmann.
In January 2011, Adam filed a lawsuit seeking full custody of his daughter and to have his name added to her birth certificate.

Forstmann was actually Princess Diana’s ex-financier and left a trust fund for Lakshmi’s daughter.
After suffering for years with endometriosis, which is associated with infertility, Lakshmi became pregnant with daughter Krishna Thea Lakshmi, who is now 3 years old.
“It was horrible to write about because I spent so much of my life not wanting people to focus on my personal life…also about some difficult things.” One of those difficult things was getting pregnant with daughter Krishna while dating two men, billionaire Teddy Forstmann and venture capitalist Adam Dell. When men do it, they call it being a playboy when women do it they call it something else…“It was really difficult because it was embarrassing. I had just gotten out of a divorce and, by the way, I was honest with everyone involved in my life — but it was still hard.” Padma continued, “Now, I have this beautiful 6-year -old daughter, and she is the light of my life.” Forstmann stayed a part of Krishna’s life, even after it was revealed that Dell was the biological father.I didn’t want any other young girl to go through what I went through and I don’t want young girls to think it’s their fault.” Padma revealed that once she is done with her book tour she will film the new season of “Top Chef.” Afterward, she’s looking forward to some down time with Krishna.Padma Lakshmi is a gorgeous TV personality and model who has been making headlines recently.
