Melissa George dating tech mogul

Date
French connection ... Julie Delpy chats with Melissa George and Jean David Blanc.

French connection ... Julie Delpy chats with Melissa George and Jean David Blanc.

Australian actress Melissa George has gone public with her romance with French entrepreneur Jean-David Blanc.

George first sparked rumours of a new relationship after she was spotted smooching Blanc on the dancefloor at a British Academy of Film and Television Arts (BAFTA) Awards after party in London in February.

Her new boyfriend has now been identified as technology mogul Blanc, who accompanied her to the Tribeca Film Festival in New York this week.

The pair appeared happy to be seen together as they enjoyed cocktails at the 2 Days in New York afterparty on Thursday.

George dated hip-hop mogul Russell Simmons from July 2011 until February this year, when he confirmed their break-up on Twitter and blamed "the difficulty of long-distance relationships" for the split.

The actress, who first came to fame in Australia for her role in Home And Away, won the third Logie of her career at the 2012 Logie Awards.

She won the much-coveted Silver Logie for Most Outstanding Actress for her role as Rosie in The Slap. The show, shown on ABC 1, itself also won a Logie for Outstanding Drama Series, Miniseries or Telemovie.

George has also appeared in many US TV shows and films, including Grey's Anatomy and Friends.

  • Oh, I didn't know there were any French tech moguls!

    I had this pre-conceived notion that the French were all socialists and wanting France to be in as much debt as is possible.

      • I like celebrity gossip but I hate hearing this "the difficulty of long-distance relationships". Give me a break, it's not like they cant afford to travel to see each other! Why don't they just say I was on a movie set and met someone else!

        • Fairfax, please get rid of your celebrity section, you're insulting your readers. Who really cares which little known actress is dating even lesser-known French whatever-he-is. Boring, boring. Sadly I read it inadvertently.
