Redfoo, one half of the now defunct pop-dance duo LMFAO, has been a fixture around the WTA since last year’s U.S. Open, when he was seen cheering Sam Stosur in her box and crashing Victoria Azarenka’s press conference. The bespectacled lover of multi-colored Hammer pants and animal prints somehow became the unofficial (we hope) tour mascot in the fall, even popping up at the WTA Championships in Istanbul.
But what started as general love for the WTA may have turned into specific love for Azarenka. The two have been spotted together all over the globe during the offseason, whether it was partying in Vegas or Redfoo’s tagging along with Azarenka to an exhibition in Hua Hin, Thailand, last month. (Azarenka has made off-court headlines herself this week, signing with Red Bull.)
Then last week, Redfoo visited a radio show to confess that he’s off the market.
“I’m in love,” he said. “I don’t care who knows it. With a special one. I got a special one. A No. 1, if you will.”
A “No. 1″? That’s some spy-level code, buddy.
“I’m just sayin’ it’s a special lady, and my whole world is different,” he said. “It’s a special one, man. She’s the love of my life, man.
“I want to talk about it so much.”
He wasn’t kidding. Now in Melbourne to cheer on Azarenka, Redfoo was interviewed by Australia’s Channel 7 about his close friendship with the Belarusian.
“I’m a big Vika fan as well,” he said. “I’m supporting Team Vika. You know, I came here just to see her play. It’s very exciting.”
When asked whether the two were romantically involved, Redfoo didn’t do much to quash the rumors.
“I don’t like to kiss and tell,” he said. “But we’re really close and she’s a very special person and I’m very happy in my life right now.”
