Mickey Rourke Sugar Daddy And Anastassija MakarenkoAlthough many peo­ple know Mickey Rourke for his act­ing, he actu­ally started out as an ama­teur boxer and had lit­tle inter­est in becom­ing a movie star. Rourke won his first match at the age of 12, fol­low­ing it up with 27 more ama­teur box­ing wins, with only three losses. After suf­fer­ing sev­eral seri­ous con­cus­sions, Rourke decided it was time to retire—although he would later return to the ring.

Rourke made his film debut in 1979 with Steven Spielberg’s 1941. He landed a few more notable roles before decid­ing to return to box­ing because he felt like he didn’t respect him­self as an actor. Despite beat­ing many of his younger con­tenders, Rourke suf­fered many injuries, includ­ing a bro­ken nose and a split tongue, and even required recon­struc­tive surgery on his face. For­tu­nately, his act­ing chops were more than enough for him to return to Hollywood.

Rourke’s per­sonal life has a his­tory of being just as unsta­ble. He has been mar­ried twice, both times to for­mer co-stars. His sec­ond mar­riage, dur­ing which he was arrested for spousal abuse, ended in 1998. Since then, Rourke became known as a wom­an­izer, espe­cially of younger women. He even admit­ted to sleep­ing with 14 women in one night.

That’s why peo­ple didn’t really take it seri­ously when he revealed his lat­est sugar baby, Anas­tas­sija Makarenko, who was 33 years younger than him. Rourke claimed that when he first met the model, he wasn’t plan­ning on the rela­tion­ship get­ting seri­ous but she has since changed his mind about love.

The celebrity cou­ple has been together for about four years now, and Rourke cred­its Makarenko for turn­ing him into a changed man. Rourke has promised that despite his rocky past, he’s never cheated on her. But that doesn’t mean he hasn’t thought about it. “I haven’t f***ed around on her. I haven’t been that way for 23 years so this is new to me and it’s not easy,” he told OK! Mag­a­zine. “Sure, I could do some­thing on the side but I’ve got to live with myself.”

About Amani F

The relationship started innocently enough—like many, it grew from a platonic, working relationship. He was a well-respected, prominent business man with a seemingly perfect life, a wife, children who had grown up to be successful adults, and a religious upbringing. I was a 30-year-old college graduate, up-and-coming executive, and a single, working mother with an adorable toddler son, and a not-so-adorable, slowly dying, five-year relationship with my son’s biological father. On the first clear day of spring, he asked if I’d like to go get a breath of fresh air. We met in a park on the shore of Lake Michigan, and it was there, sitting on a bench together, that I learned his age. He was, as my father would say, “double-nickels.” This 55-year-old man, handsome, well-dressed, with just a sprinkle of gray near his temples, and the calmest, clearest blue eyes, was the most enticing man I’d ever laid eyes (or soon hands) upon in my life! For years, I invested my efforts trying to nurture a relationship with a man my age, giving him 100%; and in return, I received lies, mental abuse, and rough, emotionless sex, and my son received emotional neglect. And yet there, in the matter of a few minutes on a park bench and over the course of just a few short months, “Double-Nickels” showed me the most unimaginable care and kindness through his touch and his soft-spoken nature, his intellect and his genuine interest in what I had to say. Today, more than 10 years later, after facing our share of obstacles, we are happily married and socially accepted by our family, and our local and business communities. His adult children are cordial; my family (most especially my father) loves my husband and, best of all, he was able to legally adopt my son—our son, who is now a teenager! Love doesn’t pick an age; it picks a person.
