Tyra Banks Reportedly Dating Billionaire Shervin Pishevar
Via Gawker reports:
The first and only time I was permitted to gaze (through a Skype window) at the glittering visage of Tyra Banks, the tech-curious TV personality told me she would “love to have invested in Uber.” Banks, who launched her own photo app and claimed to spend “a lot of time in Silicon Valley,” may have better deal flow now that she’s dating Shervin Pishevar, an early investor in the $3.5 billion e-hailing company.
Neither Pishevar nor Banks responded to my questions about their relationship. But for the past couple months, onlookers have been agape over the budding romance between a humble-bragging, attention-grabbing startup financier and the Victoria’s Secret model who transformed herself into a booty-tooching household name. The unlikely couple does share a common interest: Banks has already backed a number of apps (including one with Ashton Kutcher) through her own investment firm, Fierce Capital.
In December, Pishevar and Banks were spotted in San Francisco—dining out in SoMa as well as The Battery, the members-only, no-photos-allowed social club constructed with the spoils of an AOL acquisition. Sources tell Valleywag that the couple, who met a few months ago, are now official and even vacationed near St. Barts over the holidays. READ MORE HERE
