Olympic gymnast and Vladimir Putin's presumed baby momma Alina Kabayeva is on the cover of January's Vogue Russia and it's creating quite the scandal.
Back in 2008, a Russian newspaper linked the Prime Minister and Alina, but Putin later denied it and had the paper shut down.
But now that he's allowed the 27 year old to appear on the cover many are speculating Vlad will soon take their relationship public.
A source explains:
"This could be just the first step toward their eventual public relationship. Some believe he wants to make Alina into a star."
Yeah, Mel Gibson tried to do the same thing and look how that turned out.
If and when Putin admits to having a mistress, Alina may finally reveal he's the father of the baby boy she gave birth to in 2009.
It's like a Russian episode of Maury in the making!
