Move over Will Smith and Seal, Tyra Banks has a new boyfriend, Iranian billionaire Shervin Pishevar, who is the Strategic Advisor and Board Observer at Uber Technologies. Call it gold digging or like-minded, but the 40 year old former super model isn't giving up on love just yet.

According to reports, both have been spotted countless times in San Francisco at dinner dates including South of Market and the exclusive members-only The Battery social club. A source close to the couple, who have been dating for several months, reveals the two even 'vacationed near St. Barts over the holidays', suggesting things are already quite serious.

 
 

There is no doubt the pair likely found common ground with their business acumen, with Tyra having several successful ventures like the America's Next Top Model franchise and Fierce Capital investment firm under her belt and also having graduated from Harvard's Executive Education Training Program in February 2012.

On the other hand, besides being an early investor in private car service Uber, Shervin is a Co-Founder of Sherpa Ventures, the Managing Director and Venture Advisor of Menlo Venures, sits on the Board Of Advisors of comScore, Inc and is a Founder and Executive Chairman of Social Gaming Network (SGN) and an Angel of Angel Investor. The University Of Berkeley-educated billionaire and his then-wife, Anahita Pishevar, are reported to have donated a whopping $700,000 to President Obama's last campaign. 

Well, on a light note, the Silicon Valley-based recent divorcee has been busy wooing his new lady love and have been spotted spending time together severally.

Is a wedding coming?
