Miranda Kerr reportedly went on vacation with her new beau last year.
The Australian beauty and Orlando Bloom recently announced their split after three years of marriage.
Billionaire James Packer, who Miranda is believed to be dating, had parted from his second wife Erica 45 days prior to the model’s break up.
Although James and Miranda have known each other for several years, close pals of the pair claim “sparks flew” after they both went to Tahiti in May 2012 with their then-partners.
“Miranda and James have been spending huge amounts of time together. They’re quietly dating. They’ve been very close friends for a long time and even went on a couples’ holiday to Tahiti,” a source told British newspaper The Sun. “He spends a lot of time in Los Angeles and Miranda’s been flying out to see him for weekends whenever she can.”
The wealthy businessman reportedly has the seal of approval from Orlando. He and Miranda have two-year-old son Flynn together.
“It’s early days but they’re enjoying each other’s company. Orlando is being cool about it too, as he just wants her to be happy,” the source added.
One of the reasons the British actor may be happy with his former wife’s new relationship is because of his rumored romance with Liv Tyler.
Both stars have known each other for years after working together on fantasy films The Lord of the Rings.
However, it has now been claimed the pair’s feelings have blossomed into more than a friendship.
America’s Star magazine reports they were recently spotted getting “cozy backstage” during the opening night of Broadway production Waiting for Godot. This flirting is said to have continued during the show’s after-party at New York’s Bryant Park Grill.
