Drew Barrymore and Will Kopelmann announced their separation early last year, and there were rumrs that they had separated about a year prior to that. The semi-official reason given was that Drew wasn’t happy being married and wanted more freedom essentially. The two tried to make it work, it didn’t, and it seemed like Drew’s decision from the vague thingsshe’s said on the record about it. This was Drew’s third marriage, she has two children with Will, daughters Olive, 4, and Frankie, 3. The divorce was relatively quick and amicable, Drew and Will remained close for the sake of their daughters, they even spent Christmas together, and Drew is also still close to Will’s family.
Drew has said in the wake of her divorce that she wasn’t ready to date, she repeated that in January of this year, and there weren’t any rumors of infidelity when she split. So now she’s reportedly dating a VP at a company which manufactures her Flower Beauty line of cosmetics. The two have been very undercover and there isn’t much information about the guy except for his LinkedIn and his name. She is sort-of ready to go public with the relationship because she’s tagged him on Instagram (his Instagram is private) but hasn’t posted a photo of him yet.
David Hutchinson — a senior vice president at Maesa, the company that manufactures and markets her Flower Beauty products.
The new couple were spotted sipping on drinks and taking in a DJ set by Norwegian superstar Kygo at the XS Nightclub in Wynn Las Vegas Friday night — she wearing a long floral print dress, black hat and loafers.
Page Six was first to report the news of their pairing, with a source telling the outlet the two were in Palm Springs, California, for a wedding last weekend.
Romance rumors first sparked between the two earlier this month, after Barrymore tagged Hutchinson in a two of her captions on Instagram.
Though he wasn’t pictured in either photo (and has a private Instagram account himself), he still found his username listed in both pics. The first, from June 2, features Barrymore and fashion editor Zanna Roberts Rassi at a restaurant. The other, from Monday, shows her and a friend holding up purses up over their faces.
Since his Instagram is private and he’s not listed on his company’s management page, there are precious few photos of Hutchinson. The Daily mail has some paparazzi photos allegedly of Drew out with him in NY this April though (what the hell kind of pants is she wearing?) and he does resemble the profile pic on his Instagram. Good for Drew and it seems like she waited a while before getting involved with someone new. Given her track record she shouldn’t marry this one though.
Drew just posted this, but maybe she shouldn’t have tagged her new boyfriend if she didn’t want people talking about him.
