Catrinel fist met Razvan upon her arrival to Bucharest at the beginning of her modeling career. At the age of 16, she was cast in a music video for a song called "Cercaii tai" for his band `Krypton.` By the age of 17, Catrinel became involved with Razvan and the two dated for 3 years. Catrinel eventaully broke up with Razvan at the age of 20 after moving to Milan for her career. The biggest reason, however, for the break up was Catrinel`s having met Massimo Brambatti, an italian former football player from a well-to-do milanese family. Catrinel eventually married Massimo and now resides permanently in Italy with her husband.
