Paulina Porizkova has revealed that she has a new boyfriend — almost two years after she split from screenwriter and director Aaron Sorkin.
The supermodel, 58, made her budding romance official on Instagram on Wednesday when she posted a sweet snap of the two kissing while they soaked up the sun on an outdoor deck.
“Love is in the air,” she captioned the photo coyly, without naming the mystery man.
Porizkova revealed last month that she was “in the early days” of dating someone new, but if her latest post is any indication, things are heating up between them.
Polina Porizkova, 58, revealed that she has a new boyfriend. The supermodel took to Instagram on Wednesday to share romantic photos of her kissing shades, writing, “Love is in the air.”
Porizkova announced last month that she was “in the early days” of dating someone, but kept the identity of her mystery man under wraps.
Share the news on Hollywood Live Podcast While discussing how she reads the The relationship self-help book for us by Terrence Real and I knew she wanted her future partner to read it.
I thought, “The next guy I meet where I feel like the possibility of a relationship is going somewhere, I’m going to have them read this book before we get anywhere real,” she explained. So I might say, I have just handed this book over to someone.
Porizkova kept his identity under wraps, but indicated that he had already read the book.
“We had the most amazing conversations about ourselves, where we were going and what we wanted,” she said. “It was a great conversation piece, actually.”
The No Filter author, who was married to Ric Ocasek for 30 years, added that she still struggles with “trust issues.”
“My work was cut out for me,” she admitted.
Porizkova spoke candidly about her grief and anger after Ocasek died unexpectedly from cardiovascular disease at the age of 75 on September 15, 2019.
They separated and divorced when she found him dead inside their shared Manhattan home.
Porizkova has been married to Ric Ocasek for 30 years. The model and The Cars were separated and divorced when he passed away in September 2019
Porizkova’s first public relationship after her late husband’s death was with Aaron Sorkin, with whom she attended the Academy Awards in 2021. They divorced in July of that year after three months.
The day after The Cars’ frontman died, she learned he had cut her out of his will a few weeks earlier, claiming she had “abandoned” him. He left her without any money to live off of, including her own earnings.
The cover star was forced to sell his home amid the pandemic for $10 million — far less than the $15.25 million they had previously listed in 2016.
She later reached a settlement with her late husband’s estate and received what was owed to her under New York State law, one-third of Ocasek’s assets.
Porizkova The first public relationship after her late husband’s death was with Sorkin, 61, with whom she attended the Academy Awards in 2021. This trip was later revealed to be their second date.
She announced their split on Instagram in July of that year after nearly three months together. In the caption, she talks about how great the Oscar-winning screenwriter is, calling him “clever” and “sexy.”
Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Alum hasn’t explicitly revealed why their relationship ended, but it did hint that they were a lot different.
Porizkova rejoined Hinge after the breakup but the dating app was ‘turned off’ because other users assumed her account was fake. She admitted that she didn’t have much luck with dating after her account was reinstated.
She has been open about her struggles with dating and meeting men in her fifties after three decades of marriage.
‘It’s a little pond.’ Dirty little pool. Girls, ladies, it sucks. It turns out that, on dating apps, guys our age, my age, who want to sleep with women our age have actually slept with all my girlfriends,” she explained on Red Table Talk last November.
So there are, like, these five guys that we keep going through. They’re like, “Have you slept with him yet? Yeah, never mind. Well, cool, thanks.”
Porizkova hinted at her new boyfriend in her recent Instagram posts. “I hope your BF doesn’t see this!” She joked when she posted this photo from her vacation in Morocco
The Sports Illustrated Swimsuit alum also appeared to be speaking out for her boyfriend when she opened up about her fear of appearing ‘needy’ in an Instagram post last week.
Porizkova, who has more than a million followers on Instagram, hinted at her new boyfriend in her recent posts without revealing any details about him.
Earlier this month, she referenced her beau while sharing a photo of herself taken inside her Airbnb rental in Marrakech during her trip to Morocco.
“What I look like from below, with my prescription glasses shrinking my eyeballs to peas, no makeup, while I try to take a selfie with our stunning ceiling at our rented Air B&B.” Hope your BF doesn’t see this! I joked.
Porizkova spent her 58th birthday flying home to New York, and the next day posted a steamy shot of herself lying naked in bed with nothing more than a stuffed animal and a strategically placed sheet.
The mother-of-two also appears to be speaking out for her boyfriend when she opened up about her fear of appearing “needy” in an Instagram post last week.
I told him, “I don’t want to sound needy.” “I don’t want you to think I’m crazy.” He said, “Being needy means you have needs. It’s not crazy.” It wasn’t until that moment that I realized I equated need with insanity,” she wrote in the caption.
“As a child, I was taught that my needs were unimportant and made me ‘difficult.’ So I ended up re-creating the same dynamics in my love life, partners who had no room for my needs. I suppressed them to please my partners, but my resentment was building and spilling over, making me look ‘needy and crazy’ “.
Porizkova admitted she was partly at fault for the dynamic because she never learned how to ask for what she needed.
When I was trying to confirm a need, I was met with bewilderment. After all, she was presented as a woman who was eminently capable and, therefore, a woman without needs, she explained. “Although sometimes I cringed under the weight of it all.
I finally learned how not to be ashamed of my needs. To “get them out” and face potential rejection. And I have come to find out, those who refuse are people who don’t listen. Who do not want to hear. So I will stick with those who do. ”
