We didn't even know they were dating! Tyra Banks 'splits with boyfriend of five years'
Every now and then a celebrity split comes along that completely floors you.
Not because you're mourning your imagined friendship with them, but one that makes you say, "Who knew they were even dating?"
It's been reported this morning that supermodel and ANTM legend Tyra Banks has split with her boyfriend of five years. FIVE YEARS.
The couple have a child together, which they welcomed via surrogate, in January 2016 and at the time, Asla, a Norwegian photographer, was subject to a number of '5 things to know about...' articles; but that's about it. For such a remarkably public figure, who is super active on social media and hosting one of the top entertainment shows in the US, Banks has only been pictured a handful of times with her long-term boyfriend.
"It came drama-free and they’re co-parenting their young son," a source told the New York Post's Page Six.
The couple shared a luxurious New York City apartment, which is now on the market for more than €15m. They first met in 2012 on the set of the Norwegian version of Top Model. In December 2015, she gave a tidbit about their relationship to Entertainment Tonight.
"We balance each other. He's creative. I'm creative. We just have fun! He's my best friend," she said. Banks is famous for keeping her relationships under wraps - she previously dated Seal for several months in 1996.
