Who Is Katy Perry's New Boyfriend Baptiste Giabiconi?
Katy Perry has been officially single since December 30 of last year, when then-husband Russell Brand filed for divorce after weeks of public speculation that the couple's relationship was on the rocks. If, three months later, Perry still thinks of herself as single, she's not acting like it. This past weekend, French model and musician Baptiste Giabiconi, whom Perry has been spotted with a lot recently, tweeted a picture of himself and Perry cuddling together aboard a high-speed Eurostar train to Paris, essentially announcing that they are a happy couple. “Hey my #littlekats u look So amazing in this pics !” Giabiconi, 22, wrote as a caption for the pic.
While Giabiconi may not be a household name in America like his new lady love, his face probably strikes a chord of familiarity. One of the highest paid male models in the industry, Giabiconi is known for his work modeling for Chanel, Fendi and Karl Lagerfeld, and has appeared in editorials for Vogue, Harper's Bazaar, Elle, Numero Homme, V Man and Marie Claire, among others. Before he and Perry met at Paris Fashion Week last month, Giabiconi was vocal about his admiration for the mega-selling pop star. "If I could make her divorce her husband, I’d marry her,” Giabiconi told Dansk magazine about a year ago.
"He's totally smitten," Giabiconi's friend Princess Kasia Al-Thani of Poland said. "Katy is the perfect girl for him."
