Bobby Flay’s ex-wife Stephanie March may have found her happy ending.
The statuesque Law & Order:Special Victims Unit actress, who finalized her divorce from the celebrity chef last year, has been quietly dating hedge fund mogul and Harvard MBA holder Dan Benton, reports Page Six. And his net worth from running tech fund Andor Capital Management is significantly higher than Bobby’s, says the report.
The new couple made their debut together at a black-tie Whitney Museum gala on Tuesday, and are said to have been happily dating since October.
Benton is divorced from Axel Capital Management founder Anna Nikolayevsky, and owns a Park Ave. duplex worth $39 million, which his now ex-wife lives in.
Bobby and Stephanie made waves last year when their decade-long marriage ended and they engaged in a bitter public battle over their prenup, in which Bobby was bound to pay his ex $5,000 a month in alimony.
The actress wanted more because she claimed to have helped his rise to the top in the restaurant and TV world. Stephanie was then booted from the apartment she shared with Bobby, where she had also been caring for her sick mother. Bobby put the Chelsea pad on the market for $7.95 million, and also got to keep his Hamptons mansion. He is estimated to be worth $20 million.
In June 2015, when the chef received a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame, he was smiling for photos at the event when a plane flying a banner reading “cheater,” flew right above. Their divorce was finalized last July.
Bobby has also moved on since the split, and is now dating pretty blonde “Masters of Sex” star Heléne Yorke. The two went public to the recent premiere of Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice at Radio City Music Hall in New York.
