Cesar millan dating history
From the moment a 17-year-old Ilusion saw Cesar in a crowded ice rink, she says, "I knew this was the guy for me." Cesar, then 23 and living in a one-room apartment with six dogs, wasn't so sure. Arriving in Los Angeles, he washed limousines while trying to build a clientele.The idea went against every macho value he held dear. "I threw my little temper tantrum and all that, but from that moment on, I didn't stop thinking: So what do I need to do so I can gain my family back?" It was in counseling that Cesar experienced what the couple calls his "lightbulb moment," when the therapist urged Ilusion to tell Cesar what she wanted. I don't want to be treated like a piece of property.You feed everyone else first, including the dog." At the time, Cesar says, he believed he was fulfilling the man's role: working to make money to feed his family.But he was never around, and when he did come home, "If he didn't get what he wanted, he was verbally abusive," Ilusion says, "screaming at the top of his lungs." When their first son, Andre, was one year old, Ilusion was rushed to the hospital for emergency gall bladder surgery.
When a friend told him he could go to jail (and surely be deported) for dating an underage girl, he broke off their fledgling romance. "I came to the door and pressed the bell, and he said, `I can't see you anymore.' It killed me." But it didn't deter her. What few know is that before he became the Dog Whisperer, his wife rehabilitated him. "He was having a hard time loving me, because of his past, because he just wasn't a people person," Ilusion says, leaning forward so her knees almost touch her husband's.
