John Paulson Takes New Instagram Fitness Guru Girlfriend On Post-Divorce Getaway
Billionaire hedge fund titan John Paulson isn’t wasting any time after divorcing his wife of nearly two decades.
Page Six reports that Paulson, who won fame for his billion-dollar take from his bets against mortgage-backed securities ahead of the collapse of the US housing market. escorted his much-younger girlfriend, Alina de Almeida, 33 (vs. Paulson’s brisk 65), to the shores of Lake Como for a romantic getaway weekend.
Witnesses told the NY Post’s gossip page that the couple was traveling to attend the wedding of Blackstone executive Mark Mofatt and British beauty Sarah Mintz at romantic 16th-century Villa d’Este on Sept. 25. The paper’s sources said the pair “canoodled all day and night” and that “he and Alina were inseparable.”
Page Six was first to report Paulson’s divorce from his wife, Jenny Paulson, which could see the division of a billion-dollar fortune since the pair reportedly don’t have a prenup.
Paulson’s new girlfriend is an Instagram diet guru.
Sources say they met via “mutual friends” this summer. Sources say she has moved into his Fifth Avenue Apartment. De Almeida runs Effective Lifestyle, which features shots of De Almeida’s toned body in skimpy workout gear.
One source told the Post: “John does have a new, much younger girlfriend and while it is still early days, the relationship is blossoming. They are very happy.”
With a billion-dollar fortune at stake, De Almeida may be remembered as one of America’s greatest homewreckers (Paulson and his wife have two children together). Rumor has it Paulson was so bold as to invite his new squeeze to the same gala dinner where he was honored, even seating her near Paulson and his wife.
At least he was respectful enough to follow the old custom: wives in the front, girlfriends in the back.
