CT doc leaves wife for Annie Lennox

2011-02-13 21:36
 
London - A Cape Town doctor has apparently left his wife and children for British pop star Annie Lennox.

Britain's Sun newspaper on Saturday reported that Aids gynaecologist Mitch Besser, 56, had already moved out of his Cape Town family home.

Besser has received accolades for his work to reduce mother-to-child transmission of HIV and Aids.

Besser and the former Eurythmics star, also 56, are said to have met two years ago through his charity, which helps HIV-positive mothers in Africa.

According to the newspaper, Besser's marriage to Debra was already over at that time - but the relationship dashed any hopes of a reconciliation.

The couple have two sons, aged 19 and 16.

A friend was quoted as saying: "Debra's devastated. Annie and Besser became close throughout last year. It's now serious. Annie didn't set out to hurt Debra."

The website of Besser's Mothers2Mothers charity features footage of Lennox, a frequent visitor to the country owing to her charitable work, visiting projects.

Lennox has been married twice before and has two daughters.
