(NEW YORK) — Top Chef host Padma Lakshmi has taken to Twitter to set the record straight on rumors about a possible new man in her life. The tabloid press had it that she was getting close to hotelier Vikram Chatwal. Not so, says the former model.
She wrote, “Pls stop the lies. I’m NOT dating anyone or vacationing with or ‘cozy’ with anyone. Susan S was my only date to Blossom Ball. #singleandfree,”
Lakshmi and Chatwal were seen courtside at a New York Knicks game last December and the New York Post reported that she accompanied him to the Blossom Ball this week. The celebrity cookbook author was hosting the gala, which benefits the Endometriosis Foundation of America. The “Susan S” referred to in her tweet was likely Susan Sarandon, a supporter of the charity.
