NFL quarterback Tim Tebow and Miss USA 2012 Olivia Culpo broke up after two months of dating because Tebow, a devout Christian and virgin, didn’t want to have sex with Culpo. Sources said Tim was crazy about Olivia, but she got fed up because the abstinent Tim didn’t want to sleep with her.
“She had to break up with him because she just couldn’t handle it,” a source told the NY Daily News. “He still hits her up, but she just can’t deal with the sex thing. He’s pretty adamant about it.”
Culpo, 23, began dating Tebow, 28, in October 2015 after breaking up with singer Nick Jonas. Jonas, a former boy bander who previously vowed not to have sex until he married, has since lost his virginity and is no longer abstinent.
In 2009, Tebow revealed he was a virgin who planned to “save himself” for marriage. “I’ve got my set of values, things that are important to me now at this point in my life, and that’s all that matters,” said Tim, who recently lost a dramatic amount of weight on the low-carb ketogenic diet, Celebrity Health & Fitness reported.
Tebow dated actress Camilla Belle in 2009 but split after a few months, reportedly because of his insistence on remaining a virgin until marriage. Tim said he wants to be a positive role model for young people, especially Christians.
Another celebrity couple who has vowed not to have sex before marriage are singer Ciara and NFL star Russell Wilson. Russell, a quarterback with the Seattle Seahawks, has been dating Ciara since April 2015. Wilson and Ciara are both devout Christians who plan to remain celibate until marriage, but Russell admitted it’s tough because Ciara is so sexy.
“I ain’t gonna lie – I need ya’ll to pray for us,” Russell joked. “If there’s a 10, she’s a 15. Pray for me. Keep my mind clear, keep my heart clear. If you can love somebody without [sex], then you can really love somebody.”
