Naomi Campbell is reportedly dating Russian businessman Vladimir Doronin.
The supermodel - who has previously been romantically linked to Formula One racing tycoon Flavio Briatore and P. Diddy - has been spotted cavorting with Vladimir, who is nicknamed the 'Donald Trump of Russia' in his home country.
The pair - who first met at France's Cannes Film Festival earlier this year - are said to be "smitten" with each other, and have been photographed hugging and sharing intimate gazes by Brazilian newspaper O Dia.
A source said: "Vlad, as he is called by his friends, is one of the richest property developers of his country."
Vladimir is reportedly extremely taken with the 38-year-old beauty, and even threw a party for her when she was sentenced to 200 hours community service on charges of assaulting two police officers on a British Airways flight in April.
The source added to Britain's Daily Express newspaper: "Vladimir is so fond of Naomi he even threw a dinner on his boat in St. Tropez after the outcome of her court case."
Earlier this month, Naomi was seen kissing Brazilian entrepreneur Marcus Elias during a romantic cruise around the Italian island of Capri.
The couple - who had reportedly been dating since February - held hands, hugged, kissed and laughed together during the cruise.
