Well, we suppose this was inevitable. Just days after we get word that Vera Wang is separating from husband of 23 years Arthur Becker, rumors have begun to swirl that Wang may be harboring a younger paramour in her Beverly Hills mansion.
His name is Evan Lysacek and he is a 27-year-old Olympic figure skater. She is 63 and has two daughters, both of whom are fewer than eight years his junior. Now, these accusations might be more scandalous were the two not already longtime friends and collaborators — Wang designed the costumes for Lysacek’s 2010 Olympic gold-medal performance as well as a 2009 World Championship outing, and is herself a former competitive skater.
New York’s Daily News, however, reports that an “insider” reveals that the relationship may have since blossomed into something more.
The status of their current relationship, however, is unclear even to those closest to them. There is “something going on,” says the source, while a second insider says Wang is “just enamoured with him and enjoys his company,” and doesn’t think a sexual relationship is in the cards. A spokeswoman for Wang had no comment.
Juicy scoop? Or fishing for scandal?
