Sunny Leone Calls Dating Russell Peters ‘Worst Thing Ever’: ‘We Messed It Up’
Actor Sunny Leone announced that she was dating comedian Russell Peters a few years ago, but it lasted for “a hot second.” She added that they have been friends for a long time and “blew it” by dating each other.
During her season two episode of One Mic Stand, Sunny told comedians Sapan Verma and Neeti Palta: “I dated a comedian but it was like, for a hot second. It wasn’t for a very long time.” She said that she was talking about Russell.
“We messed it up. I mean, we were friends for years, why the hell would we start dating? It was the worst thing ever that we could have ever done and I am still mad to that day because we would be such good friends still,” she added.
Neeti asked Sunny if she made it to Russell’s jokes, to which she replied, “I have heard that I am in a couple of his jokes.”
In a 2013 interview, Russell talked about dating Sunny and called her “a real girlfriend.” He said, “Yes, we did date each other. It was five-and-a-half years ago. It was a wonderful time. She’s a real sweetheart, you know.”
Sunny is now married to Daniel Weber, who also runs her business. The couple, who met at a club in Las Vegas, married on April 9, 2011. They have three children, a six-year-old daughter, Nisha, and two three-year-old twin sons, Noah and Asher.
In an Instagram post earlier this year, Sunny revealed the secret behind her and Daniel’s successful relationship. “10 years together, 5 ways of keeping the spark alive,” the text on the screen read, as they broke into a goofy dance. The advice was to ‘always communicate, plan date nights, cook together, make each other laugh, appreciate each other’.
