Well, this is #awkward. Paris Hilton’s ex, River Viiperi, and her new rumoured beau, Australian model Jordan Barrett, had to work together on Wednesday, February 18, for Jeremy Scott’s Fall 2015 runway at New York Fashion Week.
We can’t imagine that it was a comfortable scenario. Splitting up is hard enough without having to get your hair and makeup done next to the man who’s said to be canoodling with your ex-missus. Then there’s the fact that Jordan, 18, is five years younger than River, 23, and walking the same major fashion show. It’s like the big old break-up knife just keeps on twisting for poor River.
It’s not like the Spanish model was just a fling, either, with River and his then-señorita Paris splitting after a solid two years dating just last year. Her relationship with Aussie up-and-comer Jordan, however, is yet to be labelled as fling, couple or friends. They were spotted partying together during Milan Fashion Week last month, and have been hanging out during NYFW after walking Naomi Campbell’s Fashion for Relief show together.
If Paris and Jordan haven’t gotten to first base yet, we think seeing him in Jeremy Scott’s childish prints would’ve got the cougar all worked up. It’s probably the perfect time for her to pounce.
