This just in: The Princess of Norway is dating a bisexual shaman and she’s never been happier.
Derek Verrett is a 44-year-old shaman from Los Angeles who goes by the name Shaman Durek. He was originally born in Sacramento but moved to New York in the ’90s before returning to California to become a “shaman to the stars.”
Some of his clients include celebrities like Gwyneth Paltrow, Nina Dobrev, and Rosario Dawson. Oh, and Princess Martha Louise of Norway.
In a post shared with her 107K Instagram followers, the 47-year-old princess called Durek her “twin flame,” writing: “When you meet your twin flame, you know. I have been lucky enough to have met mine.”

When you meet your twin flame, you know. I have been lucky enough to have met mine. @shamandurek has changed my life, like he does with so many. He has made me realize that unconditional love actually exists here on this planet. He embraces all of me without question or fear. He makes me laugh more than anyone, has the most profound wisdom to share and all the bits in between from the diversity of his being. I feel so happy and blessed that he is my boyfriend. Thank you my love, for including me so generously into your family. I love you from this eternity to the next. And to those of you who feel the need to criticize: Hold your horses. It is not up to you to choose for me or to judge me. I don’t choose my man to satisfy any of you or the norms or boxes you have chosen in your mind for me to be in. I don’t thrive there, nor do I exist in your illusion about me. I choose from love. And that’s it. Shaman Durek is merely a man I love spending my time with and who fulfills me. So thank you for respecting my actions and my choice of partner. All I know at this moment is that we love each other and I am super happy. Have a wonderful, loving Sunday and Mother’s Day(for the USA). ? @dhendersonphoto #love #unconditionallove #newlove #boyfriend #inlove
A source claiming to be a friend of the couple tells the Daily Mail that the pair is “madly in love”.
“Falling in love with a client was the last thing on Shaman Durek’s mind,” the source alleges. “But their attraction for each other was inevitable.”
“They both believe they have known each other for many lifetimes, and that in this lifetime they are suppose to help heal the world together with their tribe, their followers.”
The source continues, “Durek believes he was a King in a past life and that he and Princess Marta were husband and wife in multiple lifetimes.”
In that case, we’re glad the couple has reunited in this lifetime.
As for those who may want to criticize her for her relationship, the princess, whose 14-year marriage to Ari Behn ended in 2016, couldn’t care less.
She recently told critics on social media that she’s “super happy” with Durek and, anyway, it’s not her responsibility to “satisfy the norms,” so they can all buzz off.
“It is not up to you to choose for me or to judge me,” she wrote. “I don’t choose my man to satisfy any of you or the norms or boxes you have chosen in your mind for me to be in… I choose from love. And that’s it.”
