Liya Kebede’s Split With Husband Revealed Amid Jake Gyllenhaal Dating Rumors

Isn’t she beautiful? And isn’t she married??? Turns out she’s actually separated.

According to Page Six reports:

Liya Kebede — who’s having a major moment as the first black model to grace the cover of Paris Vogue in five years, and is a favorite of hot Louis Vuitton designer Nicolas Ghesquière — has quietly separated from her hedge-under husband Kassy Kebede.

Liya, 37 — the Ethiopian-born beauty who has been a World Health Organization goodwill ambassador and has her own clothing line, Lemlem — wed Kebede in 2000. He runs Panton Capital Group and previously helped create Deutsche Bank’s global-markets division.

The couple has two kids. But a source close to the model tells us they’ve been separated “for two years — it’s never been written about.”

Eyebrows were raised in Cannes when Jake Gyllenhaal rushed through a crowd to Kebede at the fest’s opening gala. “Jake focused right in on her,” said a spy.

“They were talking for a long time. It was very flirty, Jake had her laughing.” But his rep said the pair are just friends through a financier of Gyllenhaal’s hit “Source Code.” Liya was in Cannes for L’Oréal with Julianne Moore and Naomi Watts.

Interesting. Jake Gyllenhaal be pulling them!
