The 68-year-old actress Susan Sarandon dated 38-year-old Jonathan Bricklin for approximately five years. Despite an apparent breakup last March, the pair had been seen together as recently as a gallery opening in June. Witnesses say Sarandon was introducing Bricklin as her boyfriend at the June art show. However, it seems the couple is now on the outs, as Bricklin is rumored to be dating Pablo Picasso’s 64-year-old granddaughter, Marina Picasso.
The New York Daily News reports that Sarandon was “pretty hurt” when she found out that Bricklin was flying to Paris to meet with Marina Picasso.
“Susan is pretty hurt by Jonathan. They had been spending time together again; then he left to Paris to hang with Marina. Marina and Susan know each other also. Apparently Marina is investing in his newest Ping-Pong venture, which is supposed to be in San Francisco. She also discussed with him investing in his indoor surf club.”
Us Magazine reports that on June 11, 2015, Sarandon and Bricklin were seen together at the Georges Berges Gallery opening in New York. People attending the event noted that the couple seemed “very much in love,” and that Sarandon introduced Bricklin as her boyfriend.
“They seemed very much in love. There is a real bond between them… She introduced him to me as her boyfriend.”
Another source told the publication that though they had formally split, their relationship remained the same and often hooked up and still spent a lot of time together.
“Their relationship is pretty much the same as it always was, beyond the fact that they said they split up, they still hang out all the time and hook up.”
However, all of that has seemingly changed, as Bricklin allegedly flew to Paris to meet up with Pablo Picasso’s granddaughter, Marina Picasso. The granddaughter of the famed artist recently made headlines when she began selling off some of her grandfather’s famed works of art from her private collection to the tune of $300 million.
Picasso is in the alleged relationship with Bricklin, but is also reportedly considering investing in her young lover’s new ping-pong business and possibly an indoor surf club. Sarandon also has business connections with Bricklin, as they opened a SPiN table tennis club together in New York City upon meeting in 2010.
Though the pair spent a lot of time together, Sarandon apparently called the formal relationship quits after Bricklin listed her name in a promo for an AOL series he was participating in called Connected.
