The plot thickens: Johnny Barrios, the Chilean miner who became famous when his mistress greeted him at the rescue site instead of his wife, reportedly has yet another girlfriend. Turns out Barrios, though technically married to Marta Salinas, has lived with the aforementioned mistress who greeted him at the mine, Susana Valenzuela, for five years. But it was a third woman who tried to visit the 50-year-old miner at the hospital after he was rescued, according to the New York Daily News, citing local reports.

Valenzuela, however, turned the 25-year-old woman away: "He is my Yonny Barrios, mine and no one else's," Valenzuela told a Colombia radio station. For the latest on the miners, click here.
