tyra banks boyfriend

Tyra Banks recently moved production of both of her shows, “The Tyra Banks Show” and “America’s Next Top Model”, to New York, and rumors are flying that the reason for the switch from Los Angeles was so that she could be closer to her boyfriend, John Utendahl,50 years old. Tyra denies the rumors and says she’s insulted by the idea.

Banks’ boyfriend, Utendahl, is based in NY. Utendahl is chairman of Utendahl Capital Management LP, the largest African-American owned investment bank in the US.Founded in 1992, it was the first minority-owned firm that didn’t specialize in municipal bonds. Utendahl earned his stripes working for Merrill Lynch and Salomon Brothers.
Utendahl’s former marriage to Phyllis Hollis ended. Utendahl and Banks started dating in July 2007. Soon after, Banks moved her shows to NY. Banks said she did not relocate to NY because of Utendahl but because of decisions made with her manager.

Meanwhile,they were spotted enjoying romantic dinner at the Pacifico Restaurant in Maui, Hawaii before leaving hand in hand.

The couple has been together for almost two years and have been spotted on numerous occasions in NYC.
