Tyra Banks fuels romance rumors with new 'ANTM' judge Rob Evans
Tyra Banks has fueled rumors of a romance between herself and new "America's Next Top Model" judge Rob Evans, posting a photo of the pair on the beach in Jamaica.
The 38-year-old model and businesswoman and the 24-year-old model were pictured wearing fake dreadlock Rasta hats. In the photo, Evans is shown in red board shorts with his arm around his new boss, who wore a red, yellow and green monokini for the occasion.
"U guessed it mon, I am irie in sexy Jamaica for #ANTM," Banks Tweeted on July 2.
The pair sparked relationship rumors last month, when sources claimed they spotted the pair getting close at a romantic dinner at the Palihouse Hotel in Los Angeles. Banks has not acknowledged the rumors.
Banks was most recently involved with Brooklyn businessman John Utendahl for three years before the pair split in early December 2011.
It was announced in April that Banks' "America's Next Top Model" team, including J. Alexander, Jay Manuel and Nigel Barker had been fired from the reality modeling competition. The long-running series suffered from the lowest ratings yet during the current 18th cycle, dubbed the "British Invasion," which premiered in February.
In May, it was revealed that Evans and publicist Kelly Cutrone would take over at the judge's panel while stylist Johnny Wujek would take over as creative consultant. Filipino blogger BryanBoy, whose real name is Bryan Grey Yambao, also joined the show as a social media correspondent.
Banks is known for her work as a supermodel, talk show host and co-creator of the reality show "America's Next Top Model." Banks also helms her own production company Bankable Productions.
In February, Banks completed the Owner/President Management Program at Harvard Business School.
