‘Elena’ – Eastern European name. Hmm, I wonder if there is more than meets the eye here…
“Elena” is not just an Eastern European name.
She’s so pretty. she looks eastern european to me
Jews look noting like Eastern Euros and neither does Ellie. She’s just an atypical British
She’s not good looking to me.
Just lol at all you obsessed types fighting over these entertainers ancestries like the actors/singers belong to you. So insecure.
then why the f-ck are you here?
No, she never said she had Jewish ancestry. Stop making stuff up.
Maybe she said to Neil Tennant that she is of Jewish ancestry? Rob Astorino told @Bearboy that he had Jewish ancestry.
Cool buddy! what is the other 75% of your ancestry?
Also if in fact your grandfather was Jewish you probably aren’t too distant of a relative to @Passingtime and @Follers.
