Meet Katy Perry’s New Boyfriend Baptiste Giabiconi
The ink on her divorce papers to bad boy comedian Russell Brand may still be fresh, but Katy Perry already has a new man. And not just any man. He’s a 22-year-old French supermodel by the name of Baptiste Giabiconi. Oh, and it gets better! Baptiste is reportedly the highest-paid supermodel in the world, according to the Daily Mail.
Katy and Baptiste met at this season’s Chanel runway show in Paris and were instantly head over heels in love with one another. “He was sitting next to her at the show,” a source told the newspaper. “Then, we all had dinner the other night, they were holding hands and looking cozy, and now they are inseparable.”
Baptiste enjoyed their dinner date so much that he later tried to send the singer a token of his affections. “Baptiste ordered her the biggest bouquet of flowers and the florist, Lachaume, could not deliver them,” a witness revealed. “He’s crushed.”
Princess Kasia Al-Thani, a close friend of Baptiste, added, “Baptiste is an incredible model, musician, and humanitarian. He is a great guy and he’s totally smitten, and Katy is the perfect girl for him.”
Baptiste, a muse for Chanel, has modeled in the past for major fashion houses by the likes of Karl Lagerfeld, Roberto Cavalli and Giorgio Armani and starred in fashion spreads that graced the pages of Vogue, Harper’s Bazaar, Elle and Marie Claire magazines.
