Demi Moore is once again single. According to reports, the actress’s 26-year-old boy toy Vito Schnabel ended their brief romance to protect his career as an art dealer. The Post reports Schnabel dumped 50-year-old Moore because he wants to be “taken seriously” by co-workers and clients.
“Vito has worked very hard to be taken seriously in the art business, and doesn’t want to be seen as somebody who dates celebrities. He hated having photographers follow him around after word got out about him and Demi,” an insider tells The Post.
Moore and Schnabel began dating in November after meeting at the birthday party supermodel Naomi Campbell threw for her boyfriend Vladimir Doronin in Jodhpur, India. A witness said the pair was instantly attracted to each other. They were allegedly “dancing and grinding all over each other, openly, in front of other guests.”
Moore split from 34-year-old actor Ashton Kutcher in November 2011. “It is with great sadness and a heavy heart that I have decided to end my six-year marriage to Ashton. As a woman, a mother and a wife there are certain values and vows that I hold sacred, and it is in this spirit that I have chosen to move forward with my life,” the actress said in a statement at the time.
It was the first marriage for Kutcher and the third for Moore. She was previously married to singer Freddy Moore and actor Bruce Willis. Kutcher has been dating his former That 70s Show co-star Mila Kunis.
