The German TV star Jörg Pilawa (56) and his wife Irina (48) were a couple for over 20 years, but now it’s over. The two go their separate ways, as “Bild” reports.
When asked, Pilawa’s lawyer confirmed: “Yes, it’s true. Jörg and Irina Pilawa have been separated by mutual consent for several months. Since my clients want to protect their privacy, also with regard to the well-being of their children, they will not comment further on the subject and ask that they refrain from further inquiries.»
In 2006 the couple married in eastern Congo. A tribal chief led through the somewhat different wedding. Their love was crowned by the birth of their three children Emmy (20), Juri (19) and Nova (11).
Known from quiz shows
Jörg Pilawa is one of the best-known entertainment presenters in Germany. Over the years he has made himself the figurehead of quiz shows such as “Quizduell”, “Das Quiz mit Jörg Pilawa” and “I know everything!”. Together with Francine Jordi (44), he also led through the “New Year’s Eve Show”, which was also broadcast on SRF. But these formats are also over: At the beginning of the year he announced his move to the private broadcaster Sat.1. There he moderates, among other things, “Quiz for you”. (bnr)
