Valentin Romanov, head of the Singapore office of the state-owned Russian oil company Lukoil, married Elizaveta Adamenko, 18, in the French Cote d’Azur in July.
The couple’s controversial romance allegedly started more than three years ago.Russian publication Prospekt Mira reported the pair had started dating when Miss Adamenko was 14.
The age of sexual consent in Russia, as well as in Singapore where the couple lives, is 16 years.
Elizaveta has previously lashed out against those criticising her relationship with a much older man.
Why is a young person who socialises with someone much older automatically a w****, and the older person a sugar daddy?
‘This is just a new level of communication. You can stick with your level and I am going to celebrate the 55th birthday of Valentin.’
