When a person has a multi-millionaire girlfriend, he is often speculated to be in the relationship just for the sake of money assuming him to be a gold digger, and it hurts the man who is there for love.
And following the split from his multi-millionaire girlfriend, British Chef and TV presenter James Martin has disclosed the reason for their separation and revealed his girlfriend too. So let's dig in.
Split From Multi-Millionaire Girlfriend:
James Martin first met Barbara Broccoli in 2001 at a charity auction where she asked him to cook a meal at her Chelsea house. Six weeks later, he turned up to make a meal, and in a hilarious evening, James thought that she was an amazing woman.

Till then, he didn’t know that she was a co-producer for several of recent James Bond movies. And, he accepted it as the best years of his life and in an interview in 2008, he mentioned that being with her was breathtaking. James describes her as someone who would never ask for anything but would give everything she had to make someone happy.
As Barbara knew that James loves surprises, so she surprised him with a silver Ferrari 360 Spyder, a genuine Picasso and also a Paul Newman Daytona Rolex, one of the rarest.
Also, James and Barbara could switch off their mobile phones and enjoy each others company, but it would only happen four or five times a year. Further, he revealed that Barbara wasn’t pretentious and the age difference 12 years was never the problem.
Further, James called the relationship, the most surreal, exciting and unforgettable four-and-a-half years of his life. And James had succeeded in his career with 50 restaurants, but it didn't seem to be enough to fit in her circle as onlooker thought him to be a gold digger. And James said,
The age gap didn't help matters in public. When we went to functions I felt uncomfortable when people looked at me, this nobody, and probably thought, 'He's with her for the money. But I never wanted anything from Barbara. Maybe it's male pride but there were certain places I refused to go unless I paid.
Although James hated being apart with Barbara, he would not leave his work because he did not want to add any more fuel to the rumors of him being with her just for her money. The growing difference ignited when James refused to accept the Aston Martin DBS, chassis number 007. In the spur of the moment, James said,
"If I want something, I'll work for it. Just drop it or we're going to fall out over this."
With the increasing differences of James with partner Barbara, he thought a split was better. It was hard on both of them, to walk away from someone they had loved so much but it was probably the most sensible thing they had on their mind, at the moment. Best not only for James or Barbara but also her children.
After his break with Barbara in 2005, James was reported to be in relationships with interior designer Julia Dempster, ex-Miss England Sally Kettle as well as Scottish actress and FHM model Claire Goose and television producer Louise Davies. Thus James being gay is off the table.

In an interview with The Sun in July 2016, James revealed happily dating his girlfriend PA Louise Davies whom he met on the set of Celebrity Who Wants To Be A Millionaire since 2011, and has been living with his partner and a pet dog “Ralph.”

A source told The Sun Online and said,
James desperately wants to keep his private life out of the spotlight and under wraps following his romance with Barbara. Louise goes absolutely everywhere with him – they just don't make a big song and dance about it.
Further, the source said,
Louise really is a girl after James' heart. They bonded over their love of cars and just last weekend were spotted looking loved-up at Car Fest on Saturday and at the Yorkshire Food Festival on Sunday.
James has managed to maintain a low profile, but as per the source, Louise knows and shares a bond with his colleagues and is good friends with his best mate Chris Evans' wife, Natasha.
With Louise's bonding with James near and dear ones, it can be sensed that wedding bell is near and Louise is almost sure to become a wife to James, but no official announcement has been made yet.
Together for seven years now, neither James nor Louise has mentioned anything about their relationship and where they see it going in the future. He has indicated that he has no plans to get married. It is not about the commitment as he is already committed as Louise knows that. He hinted that he doesn't want to spend tons of money on a single day to show people that he is happy. He already is!
