I do SO agree with you! (and for the other bits, let's just agree to disagree.)

As far as Havard Melnaes says in his book about Mette-Marit, the guy harrassed her when she broke up with him (up to the point where he was arrested). Apparently he also owns some films and pictures of MM which are highly compromising material. He would have sold it for 1 Mio Euro, but that was too much for the prospective buyers.
So this guy hasn't exactly acted like somebody who has the best interests of Mette-Marit at heart. I don't think you can trust him, so I'd rather he'd refuse to get interviewed by journalists.

marius' father even married again and some time ago had a child...
i remember that in my country the day they married the press decided to put some images from that show mm went to find a boyfriend in the tv. that must also be quite dissapointing. not even the press had a little of compassion and not emit those images just in her wedding day.

you are totally right. about all the scandals concerning her family and related people. wonder how she felt in those moments her father humiliated her, and all these peopl start talking about her. that really must be love the thing between haakon and mm...

Mary never lived with her boyfriend for 7 years. They were together for that time, but the time they actually lived together was never explicitly stated.

I actually, don't see anything wrong with MM's former boyfriend/companion contributing a good story about MM in the biography. I don't get the impression that the man is jealous or mean-spirited. I think him telling us a bit about her (he said only good things) might give the public a nice insight to MM pre-Haakon.

hmm..I can't help but feel that there are some individuals in here leaning more towards the german tabloids than the more reliable press -intentionally.Which is very sad. First of all Mr. Høiby has never written a book about his daughter. As for Marius father, he has NEVER spoken a bad word about Mette- Marit! He comes from a very well suited family, and as some have insinuated here, they do mingle with the royals. He is now married with a wealthy heiress, (http://www.dagbladet.no/nyheter/2004/09/04/407394.html ) and the relationship with MM seems excellent! So please think a little before you present gossip as truth...

I think the confusion may lie in the fact that Sven O. Høiby said that he was going to write a book about Marius, once upon a time.

And certainly, the German tabloids, as well as tabloids in other countries... don't always present the truth.

Personally, I think that whatever any previous boyfriend/girlfriend has to say about any current princess should be left by the wayside. I mean, MM has already paid for her mistakes in the past. Both in public and in private. She should not have to continue to pay the price over and over again. What's done is done. She has moved on with life, changed for the better, has a husband and a family that loves her for what and who she is. EVERYONE makes mistakes in their youth. That is part of growing up, part of life in general.
Just because someone makes good with their life, over comes bad/negative things in their life, and moves on to become a better person, does not give others the right to try and tear them down, or make money off of them just because they happened to have been part of that persons life for a short period of time. Even if what these other people have to say is either positive or negative, what she did BEFORE getting married is no ones business. And if people want to make it public, they are doing it for no other reason than for money, pure and simple. Not to mention that they are jealous.
MM has proved herself to be of merit since her engagment by going public and making an apology. She did not have to do that. But because she did, that should give the public a little bit of insight into her character. She has continued to hold her head up and do her job to the best of her ability with dignity regardless of what type of slander is being bandied about.
But this does not sell magazines. So regardless of how old the dirt is, I guess "dirty" people will continue to dig it up to make a quick buck or two. Pretty sad.

I really hate it when ex-lovers of celebrities/royalty spill their guts to the tabloids. It's just so pathetic, it should be beneath any person.

Yes, It's sad magazines sell the way they do, and even more sad anyone buy them... If MM does a very good impression for example among sick persons in a hospital, or meeting children at a school, we can't read so much about it as if she will be wearing wrong color on her shoes. Isn't it a shame anyone buys magazines about it.

You can't escape your past. If you lived a decent life then there is nothing to worry about. If the boyfriend is just telling lies, then the truth will come out. If MM knows she did not do anything wrong, then she should not care. She did hang out with the wrong crowd before so what are those people going to lose? Nothing!

I see it almost the same way, Carlota. I think he says nice things about her too. We don't know the reasons they separated and I find it human if pictures of MM reminds him of, perhaps, happy days. We don't know anything about this man and perhaps he's not traind speaking with media at all while MM and all of the Royal family have their own secretary/spokesperson. It can be about unhappy love and than I don't blame him. Who have forgot our first love?

motives

It seems to me the motives of anyone talking about their relationship to a royal or celebrity are money and fame. They all want their fifteen minutes of fame and if they can stretch it why not. I also think its jealousy this person has done better and is well known. It is just a shame that her father just won't go away and leave her in peace.

On these two pictures should be Mette-Marit (?):

"In a new book coming out later this year, an ex-boyfriend of Crown princess Mette-Marit of Norway is telling his story about being together with Mette-Marit. According to him they were about to get married, and the wedding dress was bought. Pictured: Mette-Marit with her ex-boyfriend at Quart-festival in Kristiansand.":

Obviously everybody make mistakes.
She has really changed since all that and anyway nobody can turn the clock back.
The persons writing this kind of stuff are only fame and money hungry

The thing about those types, is that if you get out, you have to break all ties. They'll just drag you back in to wreck what you've built and I don't think she's interested in maintaining ties because she improved herself in areas by kicking her addiction and working at a solid job and the rest of the junkies didn't like it.

Sorry, I forget to write to my post, that this is the story from 2005, so it won't be coming out a book in this year... I wanted only show the two photos about the girl, who is (maybe) Mette-Marit...
