America´s Next Top Model host Tyra Banks dating toy boy?

The rumour mill is rife folks. Tyra Banks, 38, and 24-year-old Brit boxer turned model are reported to be dating.

According to, Tyra Banks´new boyfriend is Brit hottie, 24-year-old Robert Evans. The boxer turned model will replace Miss Jay and Nigel Barker as an up-coming judge on America´s Next Top Model. And Tyra seems to be enjoying the new replacement. There is nothing like mixing business with pleasure, is there?

The couple have been spotted flirting at Palihouse in Los Angeles last week. The light flirting turned hot as Tyra took Evans back to her hotel room later that night. We assume that went well as they were seen a few days later having a champagne brunch at Pelican Hill in Newport Beach. A source added, “They were holding hands on the table and gazing into each other´s eyes.” The chemistry between them was sizzling.

Ms Banks who broke up with long-time boyfriend, John Utendahl, earlier this year hooked up with a much younger hip-hop singer, Drake recently but that did not pan out. Is she into dating younger men now?

The model turned show host who stresses the importance of body confidence on her hit show, “America´s Next Top Model” had to show confidence in herself when tabloids recently labeled her as “America´s Next Top Waddle” and “Tyra Porkchop.” The model who is 30 lbs heavier than she used to be when she landed on the cover of Sports Illustrated´s Swimsuit issue in 1997 had this to say about her weight gain. “I´ve made millions of dollars with the body I have, so where´s the pain in that? If I was in pain, I would have dieted. The pain is not there – the pain is someone printing a picture of me and saying those horrible things.”

So where´s the pain in dating a younger man? It´s not there folks. The world is full of older men dating much younger women. Do we label them? Cougar or boy toy, we say you go girl! What is good for the goose is good for the gander.
