Sources say, Supermodel Tyra Banks went to Bali and came back with a new boyfriend.
Banks has reportedly fallen head over stilettos for a mystery man, just one month after agreeing to end a 3-year relationship.
Tyra separated from Wall Street banker John Utendahl in December and decided to seek solace by traveling to the Far East with a gal pal.
In a scene ripped straight from the movie “Eat, Pray, Love” that starred Julia Roberts – Banks is said to be smitten with a mysterious gentleman she met on her “spiritual break”.
Tyra Banks, 38, first met ex-boyfriend John Utendahl, 50, in 2007. They came out as a couple the following year. Sources say, Banks uprooted production of her now-defunct daytime talk show and moved from Los Angeles to New York City to be closer to Utendahl.
That’s why news of John and Tyra’s split came as such a shock to those closest to the couple. The breakup also followed Tyra’s admission that she would eventually like to become a mother.
Friends say, they aren’t sure what to make of this latest development. “It’s a total long-distance romance. But it’s a big deal,” a source said.
How big a deal? Well, after wrapping up her first trek to Bali, Tyra turned right around and flew back overseas to spend the Christmas holidays with her secret lover.
Yep, sounds like a love connection.
Meanwhile, John Utendahl, who runs an investment bank in Manhattan, isn’t dragging his feet about moving-on either. He was reportedly spotted enjoying drinks with a Russian model shortly after his breakup from Tyra.
