The model, who was rumoured to have been dating actor Sean Penn, has confirmed that the two were an item – but are no longer together.
Penn, 49, was seen with model Jessica White, 25, in New York City on numerous occasions, after his actress wife Robin Wright, 43, filed for divorce. And during an interview on The Tyra Show, White, who is a former guest judge on America’s Next Top Model’s Cycle 13, confirmed the two were an item.
“Is Sean Penn your boyfriend? I saw you with him,” Us magazine quoted Tyra Banks as asking White. “Can I say that? Is that OK, is that too much? No, it’s not too much,” White replied.
Banks went to show White photos of her and Penn holding hands in September. “I hold hands with my friends,” White said.
To which Banks replied: “Ooooh, she’s dating Sean Penn!”
White denied that she was, and said: “No, I didn’t say that.” “(We) used to. Past tense,” she added.
