Irina Shayk just might have a new man in her life.
The supermodel was recently spotted hanging out with Vito Schnabel, an art dealer and the owner of Vito Schnabel Gallery in New York City. The two were photographed taking a walk before entering his apartment, presumably where they may be quarantining together amid the coronavirus pandemic and the citywide lockdown, per Page Six.
An insider for the outlet said, “They’ve been friends for a really long time.”
Another source for Us Weekly revealed that the romance may have been a long time coming. “Vito has always been interested in Irina,” the source said, adding that they met a couple years ago. “Vito is a very social person who likes to go out and have fun.”
Schnabel was previously linked to supermodel Heidi Klum, whom he dated for three years from 2014 to 2017.
Schnabel was accused of being unfaithful to Klum after photos surfaced of him with another woman. At the time, he responded to the rumors bluntly in a statement to Us, “The claims that have been made are a misinterpretation of an entirely innocent situation. There is nothing more to this than I was simply saying goodnight to a family friend and we went our separate ways.”
Shayk shares a three-year-old daughter with ex Bradley Cooper, from whom she split last summer.
