Yes, it is true that Brazilian model Adriana Lima dated super hot American rock musician Lenny Kravitz back in 2001. They were engaged to be married in 2002 but the relationship ended in 2003 leaving Lenny Kravitz feeling quite depressed as he revealed in an interview soon after the break up.
In my opinion, they made for a super hot couple especially since right around this time Adriana Lima had mentioned to the media that she had some black African ancestry in her family. She definitely has an exotic look that is quite indicative of the Brazilian country in which she is from. Part of the magic of the Brazilians is that their beauty is a powerful formula of mixed ethnicity with a large amount of the population being mixed with black African blood.
I remember the very first time that I noticed Adriana Lima ... I was on MySpace and someone posted a hot pic of what I thought was a Black model (she had a lovely complexion in a white swimsuit ... I will try to find those pics and post them in a blog later). Many months later I realized that this model was actually Adriana Lima who is not formally Black but has admitted to having some black ancestry in her family. I strongly felt that Adriana and Lenny had a special connection in part because he is also of mixed heritage (his mother is Black and his father is White). So sad that they did not get married ... they would have made some super gorgeous babies! Oh yeah!
