Bindi Irwin is setting the record on Terri's rumoured romance with Oscar-winner Russell Crowe.
The 18-year-old opened up about the persistent relationship reports surrounding Terri and Russell for the first time. “There’s lots of crazy rumors,” told E! News. “You know we do love Russell, but mum and Russell aren’t actually in love!”
“Russell is a wonderful wildlife warrior. He was a dear friend of dad’s — now a dear friend of ours,” she said. “He feels like family to us, but mum and Russell? Just friends. For sure.”
Reports emerged in December last year the Gladiator star and Terri are more than friends, with Russell slamming talk they were engaged and/or breaking up.
The Dancing With The Stars winner also candidly discussed her late father, Steve Irwin, who passed away in 2006 while working on the documentary series Ocean’s Deadliest when he was attacked by a stingray off the coast of northern Australia.
“My dad is still very much my mum’s soul mate. And I think that no matter what, Mum always says that they’ll always be married,” Bindi continued. “And to her, Mum and Dad, they’re always going to be together. So in this life and the next, they’re a couple and a team. So I think that’s really important.”
