Heidi Klum doesn’t seem to be licking her wounds after her split with Martin Kristen, judging from her recent tryst with rumored boyfriend Vito Schnabel. The 40-year-old German-American supermodel and the 27-year-old art dealer were spotted several times at various Oscar events, the first of which was the Weinstein Co. pre-Oscars party in Beverly Hills. Klum looked fetching in a black floor-length beaded dress that showcased her tanned complexion and toned arms, while Schnabel kept it casual with a long-sleeved shirt and jeans.
The Project Runway host was said to have exchanged kisses with her much younger boy toy while they were waiting to be admitted to the VIP area of the party along with other friends. Several partygoers who saw the two lovebirds said they were “all over each other” on the dance floor. After having a few glasses of champagne, Klum and Schnabel discreetly tried to leave the party together.
Klum, who has four children, became officially divorced with former husband Seal in 2012 after seven months of marriage. She dated former bodyguard Martin Kristen a few months after her divorce, but they parted ways – personally and professionally – early this year. Klum was also in a five-year marriage with celebrity hairstylist Ric Pipino from 1997 to 2002.
Vito Schnabel, who is the son of artist and filmmaker Julian Schnabel, is an art dealer and independent curator based in New York City. He was reported to have hooked up with Klum in early February at the Bootsy Bellows nightclub. Schnabel seems to have a penchant for older beautiful women as he previously dated actress Demi Moore, Liv Tyler, and Australian supermodel Elle Macpherson.
Klum is an avid user of social networking app Instagram, although she has not posted any photos of her and Schnabel together. The America’s Got Talent judge is due to start shooting again on May 27 in New York.
