--------------

- As far I understand the interview is 8 pages long, including photos. But these quotes seems to be the most juicy bits.
Ekstra Bladet, who would be the first to publish the most juicy parts hardly has anything more. None of the other media have bothered to write more than a couple of articles with basically the same quotes as those we have already seen.
However, looking at the other topics of the interview. The interview seems to be mostly about Alexandra and current life, where the divorce and relationship with Martin Jørgensen only takes up a relatively small part.

The other topics in the interview are:
Private dreams (for the future).
A slight sense of panic because the house has been sold (so fast presumably).
Where to move to.
Her believing she will find love again.
Thoughts about a possible future career.
She is considering writing a book.
How it was to see photos of Martin Jørgensen together with Eva Harlou - after the break-up. (Still to be dealt with).
Whether she still loves Martin Jørgensen.
Living in Denmark.
Her children.
Oasis Club. (I have no idea about what this is about).
Her finances, including the apanage. (I saw her reply to that, it was about two or three sentences long. I'll post if if you wish).
Facebook. (Don't know what that is about yet).
Bad press. (Saw her reply, just a couple of sentences long).

- It looks pretty meager to me.

The few things she says about Martin are pretty harsh IMO, but I have posted all quotes I could find and she's really not saying much. A paragraph or two

Today's bit in BT 51-årige Alexandra tror stadig på ægte kærlighed efter to skilsmisser: Det sker nok, når jeg mindst venter det


But when you look at it, it's Alexandra who has been talking. Martin Jørgensen has hardly said anything.

So is this an attempt to counter bad press? And/or an attempt (to be cynical) to show: Hey, I'm still here!
Or has she been contacted by the gossip press and been faced with option: Would you prefer we tell the story or would you prefer to tell it yourself? - I don't believe in that one though, due to the lack of juicy bits.

Whatever, I think this may be a mistake. Because now Martin Jørgensen is free to tell his version and if he is smart he can present it in a way that could be unpleasant for Alexandra. Or if he is really clever, he won't say much and eventually the pendulum of the public opinion may very well swing over to him.
I think you are right that her giving the interview puts Martin in a better light for not talking and not even responding to what she has said.

When she and Joachim were divorced they handled everything discreetly, amicably and in style. That won them a lot of brownie points with the public and the press. It really astonishes me that Alexandra handles things differently now, she's about to seriously damage her good reputation if she continues with these interviews.

I think Alex benefitted from her reputation, yes they were discreet but Joachim took all the blame. He was crucified by the tabloids and labelled a cheat and a drunk.

This time the media didn't make Alex the saint and I don't think she likes this. So she's helping a bit to make Martin the bad guy and take all the blame, but the public doesn't buy it. Her morals are questionable too, see the allowance. Danes have understood this by now.

BT has finally caught up with Martin Jørgensen. Eva Harlou og Martin Jørgensen står frem: Vi er kærester

At an event Tuesday evening he showed up with Eva Harlou and confirmed for the first time: "Yes, we are sweethearts".

What does he have to say to the interview with Alexandra?
"I think a divorce is a private matter".

And Nikolai and Felix, are they still in contact?
"It's no secret that I haven't. Unfortunately. - Of course it is hard".

Ekstra Bladet, which also follow this very closely has a video: Martin Jørgensen om Eva Harlou: Ja, vi er kærester – Ekstra Bladet
But have nothing to add that is relevant for this thread.

Update.

Martin om Alex' sønner: Jeg elsker dem over alt i verden – Ekstra Bladet

Martin Jørgensen has been quoted for saying to BB (presumably in their magazine edition tomorrow):
"I think it's wrong and inappropriate to discuss (the divorce) in the public space - particularly because tow children are involved, whom I love above everything in this world".

It's hard to know what to say about it all really. It seems a shame that Martin no longer sees the children especially as he was in their lives for so long. The cynic in me makes me wonder that a quick, discrete divorce seems at odds with Alexandra discussing things with the press. Then again, Martin himself has spoken, albeit briefly, to the press too now.

There is no love lost between the former couple, no doubt. I wonder if Nicolai's decision to go to boarding school and leave home has to do with the quarrels and the subsequent split.

I'm glad that Martin has made this statement to the magazine. IMHO it demonstrates that he is mindful of the boys' feelings about the divorce. It is a shame that things have deteriorated to this point between this couple.

I suspect that as well. And that may also be one reason why he seem to thrive there.

I respect Martin a lot for what he said. He obviously cares about those boys. Not surprising, he has been in their life for over 10 years, and watched them grow up. I hope for both his and the boys' sake, they still get to have contact.

I say this not knowing the facts, and I'm in no way excusing Alexandra, but perhaps it's easy to take the high road when you're not the one wronged and hurting. Food for thought.

Billed Bladet this week also writes about Alexandra's interview.

There is nothing new, except from this quote regarding Martin Jørgensen having been a part of Nikolai and Felix lives for more than eight years. To that Alexandra responds: "Yes, they have had a bonusdad".

The figures for the sale of Alexandra's house are now official: Scorer kassen: Så meget fik Alexandra for villaen - som hun fik kvit og frit

The price was 23 million DKK = 3.09 million € = 3.519 million $ = 2.414 million £.
From that amount there were loans in the house of 6.195.000 DKK, so Alexandra has earned 17 million DKK from the sale - and she has no debt in the house.

The article give three examples of apartments in Copenhagen city which she can now buy without problems.

- Martin Jørgensen as far as I understand shared the loan in the house, i.e some 3 million DKK. Considering that he has debt elsewhere, certainly in the car he's driving, there won't be much if anything at all left for him.

That is a neat profit.
That car is really bothering you, isn't it.

Not really.

And certainly not as much as it is bothering Martin Jørgensen.

- That's what happen if you don't shave. Let that be a lesson.

I admit to personal confusion. Have they completed the divorce? Wikipedia seems to think so. Yes, I know, Wikipedia has issues.
But if so, perhaps a new thread, mods? The Countess Moves On or whatever.
Every time I see this topic go current, I think there is relationship news. But it has moved on from there. ????

They are indeed divorced. It was a very quick divorce. Something I understand that is normally only granted if one part is abusive or blatantly adulterous.
