London, Oct 27: Tamara Ecclestone, who dumped her boyfriend of two-and-a-half years Omar Khyami after he cheated on her, has admitted that she had a “lucky escape” from the relationship.
The F1 heiress said that she enjoyed being single for the first time in her adult life, and truly believed that the split happened for a reason.
“I’m feeling really good right now, it was a really horrible time and it was really, really hard,” the Daily Mail quoted her as saying.
“Sometimes I don’t think you realise how strong you are until you get put in that sort of situation.
“As cheesy as it sounds, I think everything happens for a reason. My dad said to me recently, ‘Tamara, you had a lucky escape. You weren’t married, you didn’t have children. There’s a bigger, better plan out there for you.’ That’s kind of how I’m looking at things now,” she said.
Despite the explosive way in which the relationship ended – with the 28-year-old socialite discovering a sex tape featuring Khyami – Ecclestone doesn’t regret the long-term romance at all.
“I did have a lucky escape. Definitely. I don’t regret the relationship, I think I’m the kind of person who wants to fix people sometimes, and that’s not really a healthy way to be. People have to want to change for themselves.
“When I said I thought we’d be together forever, I genuinely meant it. But everything always comes out in the wash eventually,” she said. (ANI)
