From Berlin to Munich: Manuel Cortez has come a long way for love

After his separation from Miyabi Kawai (48), Manuel Cortez (42) has been official since the beginning of 2021 with the entrepreneur Saina Bayatpour (42) in a relationship. The two have even moved into an apartment together. The “In Love with Berlin” star left Berlin for his sweetheart and quickly moved to Munich. But although he feels very comfortable in the Bavarian capital, the time after the move was apparently not always easy and put the relationship between the two to the test, as Manuel revealed in an interview with at the New Faces Award.

Manuel Cortez: “We also overcame many hurdles together”

The move is good for his health

The move to Munich not only strengthened Manuel and Saina’s relationship, it was also good for the TV star’s health: “Especially during the recovery phase from Corona last year, I really needed Munich. Through Long Covid I came with the speed of the city and this energy here [Berlin, Anm. d. Red.] not clear. I needed rest.” Although Manuel is now much fitter than he was a few months ago, he is now partly still struggling: “I’m at 80 percent and I’m pretty happy with that. There are days when I still notice it. Through extreme exhaustion, through circulatory problems, through slight paralysis of the hands, through sudden tremors, so very slight neurological ones Things. But less often, much, much less than before.”
