The latest news that surfaced showed Monica Bellucci walking hand in hand with her new boyfriend at the Chanel Show at the Grand Palais. As initial reports say, the man in question is Nicolas Lefebvre, a French sculptor, and former model.
This was really surprising as Monica did not appear with anyone publicly since 2013. She was then seen with her ex-husband Vincent Cassel and the pair actually separated quite soon after that. But ever since then Monica kept her private life as private as possible and didn’t reveal any new love affairs in her life.
At one interview she did report that she was seeing somebody, but didn’t want to reveal who. The only thing she said was that the main that she has been seeing it does not have the same job as her and that she travels a lot. She also confirmed that she has been seeing this man for a while.
