Rumor Has It
Linda Evangelista splits from billionaire Peter Morton again
It sounds like the end has come once again for supermodel Linda Evangelista and her billionaire boyfriend, Peter Morton. The couple first began dating in 2006, while Evangelista was pregnant with the child of Francois-Henri Pinault, who is now married to Salma Hayek.
Page Six reports that the couple have called it quits, though it's not the first time. They previously split in 2010 after a series of arguments, but reconciled months later.
Rumors of the end of their relationship came to the forefront when Evangelista attended the Council of Fashion Designers of America without Morton, walking the red carpet alone. When asked about a breakup, Evangelista's modeling rep simply says, "We do not comment on the private life of our clients."
Morton, co-founder of the Hard Rock Cafe chain, comes from a family that's done very well in the restaurant business. His father, Arnie Morton, founded Morton's Steakhouse, while his son Harry is responsible for the Pink Taco chain of Mexican food establishments.
