Emma Watson hitch a ride with snack brand founder Ryan Kohn as the duo frolic in Venice following her split from Sir Philip Green’s son Brandon
Emma Watson was seen piggybacking with snack brand founder Ryan Kohn as the duo frolicked in Venice this week.
The newly single actress, 33, looked buoyant just weeks after it was reported she had split from shopping tycoon Sir Philip Green’s son, Brandon.
She smiled from ear to ear as she headed for a water taxi with Ryan.
The Harry Potter star was with Brandon for 18 months and it was in Venice when their relationship became public after being seen holding hands.
On the outing, Emma wore a sporty black hoodie with matching cycling shorts, ditching her shoes in favor of just a pair of socks.

She pulled her dark brown hair back into a low ponytail and put her black sunglasses on her head.
Ryan also opted for a casual look, wearing a gray T-shirt with blue Adidas shorts and white sneakers.
MailOnline has reached out to a representative for Emma for comment.
Emma and Brandon reportedly broke up some time after Christmas – after a “serious” romance that lasted about 18 months.
Brandon had a reputation as a party buff and previously dated a number of models. He was once caught patting Kate Moss on the buttocks while vacationing in St. Barths.
Raised in the tax haven of Monaco, his Bar Mitzvah, at the legendary Hotel Du Cap, includes performances by Beyonce and Andrea Bocelli.
More recently, however, he has shown an interest in good works, including biodiversity and the oceans, and has been described by friends as “polite and smart.”
With a startup technology investment firm, Brendan seemed like a good match for Watson, a serious woman who attended Brown University post-Potter.

She now harbors ambitions behind the camera, having set up two film production companies and directed herself in a Prada commercial.
The star has also developed a grape-based gin, Renais – some of the grapes for it come from her father’s vineyard in France.
During a period of being single, Emma remarked that she was a “self-partner,” but by more conventional standards she was a serial monogamist – and serially unlucky in love.
An early friend was rugby player Tom Ducker. He was followed by a more serious romance with fellow Oxford University students Will Adamowicz and Matt Janney.

She has dated three young tech millionaires, most notably the entrepreneur William ‘Mack’ Knight. They split in late 2017 after a two-year romance. On the rebound, she was in a six-month love affair with handsome Glee actor Chord Overstreet. They broke up in the summer of 2018.
She was then spotted sharing cocktails with tech CEO Brendan Wallace, the co-founder of a venture capital fund she may or may not be dating again.
By the summer of 2019, she had moved on to another tech millionaire, Brendan Iribe, CEO of Oculus. He was followed by businessman Leo Robinton, with whom she spent two years.
In an interview, she said, “The boyfriends or partners I’ve had generally make me feel really nurtured. They built me up.’
