Model love for hotel tsar
Newly single millionaire bachelor Justin Hemmes is rumoured to have moved on — with former David Jones model Montana Cox. Sunday Confidential can reveal Hemmes and Cox have been seeing one another since April, three months before Hemmes confirmed he had split with the mother of his two children, Kate Fowler (inset).
Hemmes revealed in July that he had separated from model Fowler six months before, saying they remain good friends and, “Kate and I have the utmost love and respect for each other”. “At the beginning of 2018, Kate and I decided our friendship and respect for family life would become the focus of our relationship,” he said.
“We love our children dearly and for now continue to live together happily in our family home.”
The revelation about the new romance comes after Hemmes was last week sighted vying for a Bellevue Hill property on behalf of his former partner.
Early on in the picture, party girl Cox and Hemmes did little to keep their new relationship under wraps, with the pair photographed holding hands in April while on a group date.
Three months after officially splitting with Fowler, Hemmes took a bevy of beauties including designer Pip Edwards, fashionista Kate Waterhouse, Sneaky Sound System songstress Connie Mitchell and entrepreneur Lisa Messenger on his seaplane for lunch at his newest venue Bert’s, at The Newport.
The pair could be seen laughing, while walking side-by-side, before holding hands.
Cox previously dated Lavazza coffee heir Jamie Valmorbida between 2014 and late last year.
Hemmes could not be reached for comment yesterday.
Hemmes and Cox were spotted holding hands on the afternoon out.
