Christie Brinkley may have landed herself another music man. The 62-year-old supermodel was recently spotted on back-to-back date nights with Grammy-winning musician David Foster. According to Entertainment Tonight, Brinkley and Foster, 67, went out to Ralph Lauren’s Polo Bar, where they bumped into Hillary Clinton. Later, Christie and the famed composer turned up at the Blue Note Jazz Club in New York City to see Chris Botti’s show. Before the night ended, Brinkley even hopped onstage to play drums with Botti’s band.
The following night Brinkley and Foster went on a date night to hear Andrea Bocelli sing at Madison Square Garden. While the ET source has confirmed Christie Brinkley and David Foster went out on a date, there is reportedly “nothing serious” between the two and their relationship is still “brand new.”
This isn’t the first time Christie Brinkley has been spotted with David Foster, although it is the first time their joint outing has been described as a “date.” In August, Brinkley and Foster were seen together at the Apollo in the Hamptons 2016 party at The Creeks in East Hampton, according to People.
Christie Brinkley and David Foster have a lot of common. Both stars are in their 60s and have been married four times. Foster, the chairman of Verve Records, split from his fourth wife, Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star Yolanda Hadid, last December while Brinkley broke up with her boyfriend of one year, rocker John Mellencamp, in August.
Brinkley, who was the subject of ex-husband Billy Joel’s hit 1983 song “Uptown Girl,” previously told Sirius XM host Howard Stern that she has a thing for musicians.
“I love musicians,” Brinkley told Stern in 2015. “I think that artists are the most amazing people because they’re constantly creating beauty for the world. With all the crazy stuff in the world, there’s artists reminding us of our humanity and reminding us of our heart and soul — what really matters. So I respect artists so much. I absolutely love music as the ultimate art.”
Christie Brinkley has remained close with Billy Joel (the exes share a daughter, Alexa Ray Joel, now 30), and he even serenaded her with “Uptown Girl” at a 2014 concert. And when she was dating Mellencamp, Brinkley made it clear she was a big fan of her man’s music—even while listening to her ex-husband’s songs. Last December, People reported that Christie even wore a John Mellencamp t-shirt to a Billy Joel concert. Brinkley wore a shirt from John’s Plain Spoken tour when she took her kids, Jack and Sailor, to Billy Joel’s show at Madison Square Garden.
“John gave [the shirt] to her. They are in love and very happy,” a source told People of Brinkley. “She’s been spending time with him at his home in Indiana. She is radiating love and I’ve never seen her so happy.”
When Christie Brinkley split from the “Jack and Diane” rocker, some media outlets reported that their breakup was over politics and that John was “too right” for Christie. Brinkley promptly took to Instagram to squash the stories, reiterating that she only split from Mellencamp due to “distance and work” and that they remain good friends.
“As to the problem John and I faced, it’s just mileage. Pure and simple. Not that exciting or salacious, sorry,” Christie wrote.
While Christie Brinkley clearly has a type, David Foster seems to have a type, too: gorgeous blondes. In addition to Yolanda Hadid, the 16-time Grammy winner was previously married to blonde beauties Rebecca Dyer and Linda Thompson, and he was recently linked to blonde Dr. Phil producer Carla Pennington.
