Not being funny but sometimes Nuno talk "urban" (for lack of a better term). He talks like he is hip and Christina uses words like "bae" and other hip hop slang. Also Nuno got the nose ring and in the video for Hole Hearted he wore his hair in braids. I often wonder does tries to hangout or date different types of women.... like Puerto Ricans, African Americans, Asians or Arabians. Exotic looking women seem to compliment him. Just my opinion.

Yes Nuno needs to be single and not be serious with anyone because he just got a divorced a few short years ago. Why do people think Christina wants to have a baby by Nuno? She has her career to think about before she gets tied down with children. For what I am hearing that he sees other women,so they must have an open relationship. There is only certain things Nuno and his girlfriend can talk about. For example Nuno cannot share certain things with her, like the first time he saw Prince because she was not born yet.

Nuno Bettencourt is an underrated Musician who has never found his most comfortable genre as of yet. He is extremely humble and down to earth, wounded by his past. He needs solitude and to be by himself to discover who he has become at age 50. Two beautiful adult children 20 and 14 and friends with his ex wife of whom is a very classy, talented woman. A deeper relationship needs to be forming with them at this stage in their lives. Christina Chandler is a pretty talented hip hop dancer who is very inmature and naive in thinking it would be alright to be having children at the same time as his daughter. She is very inexperienced at life and relationships and needs to experience both and especially at age 26. Nuno cares about this girl, but if he really loves her then he will set her free very very soon so she can experience all the things he got too. That is called Love.

Yes, Nuno is Still following Big Booty on instagram as well as many many other older sexy women and these I am talking about are NOT fitness chicks! Dead give away this man is not happy with the teeny bopper hollywood look at me chick. Their conversations are extremely limited and we all know when a man hits 50 well they start having difficulties in that department. Her and his daughter are just 5 years apart and yeah, that's it.....Nuno could be called grandpa and daddy at the same time! Nuno is not happy and he has told the ones closest to him.

Facts are accurate, I would have to agree. Christina is a great hip hop dancer, she is immature and inexperienced in many areas of her life and that includes relationships. This girl sticks her tongue out in photos constantly because she thinks it's cute and the thing to do. She is a follower, not a leader and she wants so badly to fit in and look cool. She has extreme jealousy issues and well, the writing is on the wall.

ter. She is acting like she is having sex on stage and humping lead singers. It's all about look at me, I am here at a hollywood house throwing a big party with famous people. Let's see all those party pics when in just a few mere years Nuno looks like Steven Tyler and there will be the bouncing look at me shallow minded blonde going okay I think I will keep dancing and then teach. Oh sorry Nuno, I can't change your diaper and the kids too. At this point, it looks creepy as hell. Especially when his daughter is just a few years younger than her. Everybody knows she has the hots for that latino dancer too, just go on with it. The body language is clear too. He is always two feet away from her when taking pics and following tons of older big booty on social media, HELLO DUMB GIRL YOU CAN"T COMPETE WITH THAT.

Christina is half Nuno's age, cute and a dancer. She was his friend and there for him when he and his wife were having problems and it was convenient because they were on tour together. She is very juvenile still and it's all about acting cool in front of her friends and living the hollywood life. His daughter is just a few years younger. Nuno will be 50 in September, has two grown kids, established career and is following tons of big booty women that are older than the naive Christina. He has tried to keep this relationship quiet for a couple of reasons. One is out of respect for his exwife and kids and the other is because even though he loves and cares about this girl, that's the point. Christina is just that, a girl. She doesn't want to be changing Nuno's diaper at the same time as her own child's. Nuno doesn't want newborn babies crying when he is retirement age either. This is just nothing more than party memory train that is about to derail. What a role model for his grown daugh

Watch the vid Bettenfest Extreme Trio RIP in youtube and you will see Christina chandler at the side of the stage while they were performing.....Bettenfest is like a reunion for all bettencourts so I guess she's already known in the family.. Nuno might b living his happily single life now that He's divorced but I really hoped that they didnt cause they have two such lovely kids.

to my surprise me particularly as such a young and beautiful as christina girl is interested in a man as old as Nuno and ensima already had a wife and have children .. waiting for that relationship ? I do not think he wants something serious with christina

GuitarLegendOct 8, 2015

Yep his girlfriend is definitely christina chandler, rihanna's dancer , i bet he cheated on Suze with this blond girl. Suze made some comments about disapproving Nuno, touring with Rihanna, knowing he will be surrouding by hot younger ladies, spending almost all of his days with him.Looks like a midlife crisis to me, I wonder what both have in common, she seems really shallow, I bet his kids are not agree with his relationship, that's why he doesn't post picture with her, whereas ,her took picture in his house ,and with his dog. There's a time for everything in life , and dating hollywood fame hungry chicks he's not the right choice for you Nuno. Bye bro.
