Who is Natalia Garibotto?
Born under the earth sign of Capricorn, on 14 January 1993, in São Paulo, Brazil, Natalia Garibotto is a 26-year-old American-Brazilian-Argentine Instagram model, influencer, director, real-estate agent, and social media personality. She rose to fame due to her provocative photos on various social media platforms, but also because of her relationship with one of the best basketball players on the planet, Kyrie Irving, who now plays for the Boston Celtics of the National Basketball Association (NBA). Natalia used this opportunity to attract even more sponsorships, and build her personal brand.
Early Life and Education: From Brazil to the United States
Natalia was born into a mixed family in São Paulo, having both Brazilian and Argentine roots. While we don’t have conclusive information about her parents and early life, it’s safe to assume that one of them hails from Argentina. As a result, she has been fluent in both Spanish and Portuguese from an early age. In her pre-pubescent years, the entire Garibotto family relocated to Miami, Florida. Even though moving to a foreign country is a shock for anyone, Miami has a large Latin American community, so young Natalia must have felt right at home. She attended Miami Country Day School and later enrolled at the University of Miami, from where she has a Bachelor’s Degree in Business and Entrepreneurship. Despite being attractive and stylish, Natalia didn’t want to disregard her education. The knowledge she acquired at the University of Miami was a perfect prologue for the beginning of her career.
Career Beginnings: Far from Modeling
Natalia’s first professional venture was the position of assistant at Sovereign Scientific, which is a real-estate agency started by her family, operating since 1987. This foray into the business world prepared Natalia for all the challenges she might face in her future career. While the position of assistant isn’t a particularly demanding one, Natalia gained important knowledge about showcasing properties, talking to clients, and closing a deal. Around the same time, she applied for an internship at Venue Magazine, a reputable publication devoted to the life of Latin Americans throughout the US. With her mixed heritage and childhood spent in South America, Natalia was the perfect person for the job.
Using Social Media to Build a Reputation
In addition to her prowess in the real estate industry, and with Venue Magazine, Natalia began to take an interest in modeling. Ever since she was a teenager, she has been praised for her fit-looking body and beautiful facial features. To attract attention, she started posting photos from various amateur shoots. Because Instagram was still in its infancy, there wasn’t much competition, thus Natalia was quickly noticed, and started doing shoots with professional photographers. Her curvaceous body caused a lot of stir online, which resulted in her follower count increasing with each day, and it didn’t take long before she became one of the most famous Instagram models.
Then in early 2012, she made headlines because of her first high-profile relationship.
Natalia’s Relationship With Kyrie Irving
During the Spring of 2012, Natalia met Kyrie Irving, a basketball player, who at the time played for the Cleveland Cavaliers in the NBA. The two quickly grew closer and started posting selfies on Twitter and Instagram. Even though tabloids wanted to know all the juicy details about these two, they managed to keep a low profile. However, Kyrie got into trouble by posting a provocative photo on Instagram, with two girls by his side. He claimed someone “hacked his profile” and apologized before tweeting: ‘Only person missing is @NataaGataa, then it would be a perfect Christmas!! I love you.’ Such a public display of affection let everyone know that this wasn’t just a fling. However, even at that time, Kyrie was known as a “womanizer”, so nobody expected the relationship to last long. They continued with their “low-key” approach before splitting up for good sometime in 2014. Both Kyrie and Natalia refused to comment on their break-up, prompting everyone to think there might be more to it than meets the eye.
Where is She Now?
If you thought Natalia was popular before, she is a superstar now. She mainly uses Instagram to promote her sponsor’s products – most of her posts include her wearing apparel by Fashion Nova, a popular clothing brand that offers items that look luxurious, but come at reasonable prices. In addition, Natalia actively promotes a number of swimwear brands, such as Beach Bunny Swimwear and Meg Liz Swim. Some of her other sponsorships include KO Watches and BANG Energy, which is an energy drink catering to athletes and people who work difficult jobs. Surprisingly, Natalia still hasn’t abandoned her career in real estate, and currently, she also works as an Assistant Director at G&G Business Developments.
Personal Life: Does Natalia Garibotto Have a Boyfriend?
As of mid-2019, there is no credible information about Natalia’s relationship status. After Irving, she was with another famous athlete – DeSean Jackson, who is a football player for the Philadelphia Eagles of the National Football League (NFL), however, that relationship didn’t last long. Around the same time, fans began suspecting that she’d got together with Odell Beckham Jr., another famous football player, who frequently appeared in Snapchat stories in 2015.
Nowadays, Natalia is probably single and focused on her career. Even if she has a boyfriend, they’re certainly keeping a low profile, because of her past experiences with tabloids and malicious allegations.
Fell in love with Sintra, Portugal. Such a magical place filled with palaces & castles ✨
