As of May 2014, Valentino Rossi is not married. In 2013, the Italian magazine Chi? spread a rumor that Rossi and his girlfriend, model Linda Morselli, were getting married in Limbiate, Morselli's hometown in Italy.
Valentino Rossi and Linda Morselli have been dating since summer 2012, after his breakup with Marwa Klebi. After the gossip about imminent matrimony began to spread, Rossi denied the rumors. In an interview on Radio DJ, he wisecracked, "It's all true and everything is ready for the wedding, the only problem is that they haven't told me the date." According to Excite Motoring, he also indicated in an interview just a few months before that he was not ready to get married and hoped he would never get married.
