Flavio Briatore, 69, is also dating a 20-year-old college student too, just FYI

Flavio Briatore was/is a big deal in Formula One circles and he’s very, very rich. He’s the father of Heidi Klum’s oldest child, Leni, and he’s been married and divorced a few times. He’s 69 years old. And like Dennis Quaid and Peter Cook, he has decided that the perfect accessory for a 60-something man is a 20-something college student. In this case, his new girlfriend is only 20 years old. WHY ARE MEN.

Former Formula One mogul Flavio Briatore, 69, is dating a law student who is 49 YEARS younger than him. The Italian businessman was spotted getting cosy with his new girlfriend while on holiday in Kenya. Benedetta Bosi is a 20-year-old law student at the State University of Milan. She becomes the latest in a long line of women that Briatore has dated, with the ex QPR owner’s former flames including models Heidi Klum and Naomi Campbell.

The multi-millionaire has dated so many beautiful women that in 2005, he told Vogue: “I never count, it’s not right. I believe every time you go out with somebody you go out because you are looking for something. Always the intention is good. If it’s not successful, maybe it’s destiny.”

With his ex wife and mother of his son Elisabetta Gregoraci, herself only 39, recently showing off her new boyfriend Francesco Buttuzzi – Briatore showed that he too has moved on following their 2017 divorce.

The young beauty, Bosi, isn’t known in celebrity circles – but was the Pietrasantino Miss Carnival back in 2017. While she studies law in Milan, the stunning student is said to be looking to enter the world of fashion. Briatore wooed Bosi with a short stay in a plush Rome hotel, before whisking her away to Kenya in his private jet.

I mean…look at the photos, it looks like a young girl spending time with her grandpa. That being said, I actually understand why some younger women do this. It must be fun to date a really rich older guy… for a time. I mean, if you go into it with no expectations and you don’t have to deliver anything other than your youth and beauty, go ahead and have fun, go to Kenya on his private jet and let him buy you things. Just don’t marry him and do NOT have his babies.

    He makes me want to vomit. I mean, the money can only make up for so much. He looks like he breaks a sweat looking at food.

    • Corrine says:

      @Erinn “he looks like he breaks a sweat looking at food.” 🤣😂🤣😂 I am dying. So true. Best description/burn I’ve ever heard.

    It might be fun to date a rich older guy if he’s Leonardo Dicaprio at 45. I don’t think it would be fun to date this guy at 69!!!!

  4. Eliza says:

    Trust me there’s expectations other than enjoying the travel. Plus they’re literally expected to just praise them 24/7 on top of everything, have you seen these power+age gap relationships in real life? They’re gross. The women are just expected to be femme-bots. Sexy at night, cute during the day. But never ever be a person with ideas or disagreements.

    • Skyblue says:

      Exactly. And when a woman of any age comments or expresses an opinion on this sort of repulsive May/December relationship, we’re immediately accused of jealousy. Ugh.

      • Sarah says:

        We’re not just accused of jealousy if we question this misogyny. People come back with age is just a number. You love who you love. Okay, then why do mean constantly “date” and “love” women 10-50(!) years younger than them and almost never the reverse situation?

    • SKF says:

      THIS!! It’s all so gross and transactional.

    • Digital Unicorn says:

      This has sugar daddy/sugar baby written all over it.

    • Lizzie says:

      i went to capri a few years ago and it was truly disturbing. crazy tanned pot bellied old men who all looked just like him talking at tables and stuffing their faces while their 19 year old 96 lb “girlfriends” sat completely silent and still next to them. the girls didn’t talk to each other, didn’t get up, didn’t look at a phone, didn’t eat. just sat there. it was revolting and those men looked pathetic.

      • Dee Kay says:

        Wow. This is quite a picture.

      • Tourmaline says:

        interesting! the things some people will do to get on a yacht

      • Justjj says:

        Thailand was like this too. (Mostly white) Men that were in their 60s-70s guzzling booze the entire day while their silent, rigid, barely smiling Thai girlfriends, who sometimes looked like they were about 15-16, sat and watched them, laughing on cue. I mean, sure, get a few Birkins and some great trips out of it on one hand, on the other, what are you willing to do for a few vacations and handbags? I don’t think I’m ready to shag someone my dads age, much less my grandpas age, for a purse. It’s almost like I hope these girls marry these guys so they can just completely wreck their worlds and get all the money. You might as well get all of it.

    • Savannah says:

      I wonder if she would’ve dated this corpse if he made minimum wage.
      No. I don’t. We all know she wouldn’t. So this is basically a form for prostitution. Life goal, girl. Ugh.

  5. aurora says:

    Keep in mind that his daughter with Heid Klum is, what, 14 or 15?

    • olive says:

      i doubt he thinks of her as his daughter – seal was her dad from the start and adopted her. i don’t think he ever even met leni.

  6. Craptastic says:

    Sorry, my mind went to geriatric STDs. It’s hard for Flavio to pee because of his enlarged prostate, but when he does it burns. He probably expects her to walk very sensually to the kitchen to get his pill box for him.

  7. Scarlett says:

    She works hard for the money…..everybody, sing along with me now…

  8. Golly Gee says:

    And it’s not just your youth and beauty you’re giving him, it’s your body. shudder.

  9. Diana says:

    DISGUSTING!!!!!!! 🤢🤢🤢🤢🤢

    Honey- do your parents know????

  10. aang says:

    My daughter is a 19 year old college student. She just responded to my text asking how old would be too old for her to date. She answered “27″.

    • Lory says:

      You raised your daughter right. Someone 8 years her senior is someone she can still relate to on an emotional level and can feel physically attracted to so she isn’t factoring in money and other transactional things. I couldn’t imagine dating anyone above 30 at that age. Just as I can’t imagine dating anyone under 30 now I’m in my mid-30s. Dating someone almost 50 years your junior is the product of having a very fragile ego you need to boost by showing of a very young beauty and/or being so emotionally immature that you can’t relate to someone anywhere near your own age.

    • Bettyrose says:

      When I was 18, I had a crush on my grad student tutor (who was maybe 23) but figured he’d never date a kid like me.

      • Wisca says:

        When I was 17 a 22 year-old grad student had a crush on me & I was like eww! You’re so old. Haha. It’s about experience. I was right out of high school, and he was an adult with a college degree.

    • ChamomileLawn says:

      My 8 year old Daughter asked me this week why would a young woman or girl choose to be with a horrible old man? She was repulsed at the sight of such a pairing & noisily questioned it! Truth from the mouths of babes.

    • Seraphina says:

      I always have the +4 rule for reason. Stupidly thinking any older and they may want to get married too fast. Plus, in my early 20s, anyone over 30 was icky in my eyes.

  11. Trillian says:

    What is wrong with those women anyway? If someone that age hit on me in my 20ies I would’ve run screaming, no matter how much money they have. That is just gross.

    • Zapp Brannigan says:

      Equally what is wrong with him, he wants to “date” someone who is young enough to be his grandchild.

      (In Oprah voice) You get a vomit bucket, and you get a vomit bucket, vomit buckets for everyone.

    • Veronica says:

      It’s transactional sex. Plenty of people can separate attraction and affection from the act in order to derive money and rewards. It’s why the illegality of prostitution has always been so infuriating. Legalize/decriminalize it already and allow these women to take back some modicum of power, jfc.

  12. Lady says:

    I wonder what they talk about.

  13. Green_Eyes says:

    I am 54 & hubby is 19 yrs older than I am. It helps he is young at heart and looks younger… and well groomed. I wouldn’t go out with this guy at 54 yet alone 20… no matter how much is in his bank account. He just looks greasy and like a creeper.

    • RoyalBlue says:

      Agreed. I am not an ageist but this may-December relationship is gross and no way would I hit that.

      She will probably Date him for the next 5 years, enjoy the perks, continue wi th her studies, stash cash so when the breakup comes she is set, but do not have his kids.

  14. Who ARE These People? says:

    When these stories involve young American women in college, I can’t help but think that the student loan crisis is every bit as desperate as they say.

    • HMC says:

      This one involves a young Italian college student, so some variety on the theme. She attends University of Milan in Italy.

  15. Flamingo says:

    He’s always had a thing for much younger women. Naomi Campbell was 20 years younger, Heidi Klum was 23 years younger, his last wife was 30 years younger. Peter Cook and Dennis Quaid used to date in their age range, this guy has been rocking the cradle for a very long time.

  16. interesting that they are all post grads, law students etc like we are supposed to believe these old dudes are attracted to their brain power so it’s less gross.

    • EM says:

      Law is undergrad in Italy. Often in Europe law programs are open enrollment, so it isn’t necessarily hard to be a law student. (Still have to pass lots of exams to actually become a lawyer.)

      • EveV says:

        I didn’t know that Em, thanks for the insight, as it makes a little more sense now. I still think AllKindsOfSugar makes a valid point tho.
        And this is legit gross. I try not to judge how other people live their life, but, damn, she is working HARD for that vacay.

  17. Adrien says:

    Why is holding a bunch of dried poop?

  18. Bella DuPont says:

    He’s very, very, rich because he’s very, very, very dirty. He blackmailed a young F1 driver into deliberately crashing his car into a wall during a race, in order to favour his other driver (who won the race as a result of the well timed crash). In a sport where drivers still die fairly regularly, that was just unconscionable.

    A racist and a bully, his life is littered with scandals. He was dubbed for fraud and even got handed 2 prison sentences, which he most certainly bribed his way out of.

    Knocked up and then completely abandoned Heidi Klum. Refused to have any relationship with his daughter for many years, although I think there is now some very tenuous contact between them now.

    I’m not surprised he’s dating a college student. I bet he was also close to Epstein. This man is a dictionary version psychopath.

  19. Sean says:

    I know he’s persona non grata around here but has anyone seen the Woody Allen movie “You will meet a tall, dark stranger”? All of these 60 + year old men getting with 20-somethings reminds me of Anthony Hopkins’ character in that film. He divorceds his age-appropriate wife and marries a 20-something call girl in some sort of late-in-life crisis. He fears getting older and losing his vitality. Initially he “feels” younger with his new partner but as he tries to keep up with her, he just realizes how out of place and tired he is. She winds up getting pregnant with someone else’s child.

    • whatWHAT? says:

      almost all of WA’s movies involve, in SOME way, a much older man stalking/dating/having a relationship with a much younger woman, sometimes a teenager.

      autobiographical, some might say. “hiding in plain sight” is another way of saying it.

      • Sean says:

        Oh yes, I know all about Woody’s predatory behavior both on film and in real life. I saw the movie I mentioned before I learned about all of that. I was just noting that these old men hooking up with young women remind me of how desperate Anthony Hopkins came off in that film.

  20. SJR says:

    I only read the headline.
    Because I dont want to know the details of this ugly situation.
    Dear Parents of this young, foolish female, do your best to get her away from this creep.
    Dear foolish young female, pull your head out and get away from this creep.

    Just wtf? All damn day NO!

    • Cello says:

      I think in this day and age the term “woman” is preferred to “female” (unless you’re an incel) – the difference is women are human beings, females can be any species. Just FYI.

    • Savannah says:

      Maybe the parents are the reason she is dating this pile of sh*t?
      They must’ve fu**ed her up badly..

  21. Gutterflower says:

    Oh man that is so gross. I don’t know that someone could be rich enough that attraction doesn’t need to be a factor. Ugh, gives me the shimmy shake willies.

  22. Tiffany says:

    He is not Leni’s father, Seal is. Flavio gave up all parental rights so Seal could adopt Leni.

    • Kh6 says:

      Thank you, all he did was donate sperm

    • olive says:

      exactly, seal has been there for leni ever since heidi was pregnant with her. seal is her dad. this man is just her BIOLOGICAL dad.

    • marika says:

      allegedly he is not the real father of leni. search for this. It is not even a real secret.

      • olive says:

        i’m not finding anything, just some poster on lipstickalley claiming it’s one of flavio’s drivers but without providing a name. who is the alleged biological father?

        i don’t buy it. leni looks so much like flavio. you can really see it in photos of him from a couple decades ago

  23. Charfromdarock says:


    Imagine that on top of you. 🤢

  24. Lisabella says:

    In my family it’s not uncommon to have a 10 year age difference or more, but Flavio for his age looks like SHIT…

  25. Lala11_7 says:

    He is just…EWWWWWW…and THIS is just one of the MANY REASONS WHY!

  26. Wilma says:


  27. Amy says:

    Repulsive. This kid isn’t even old enough to drink and while he is old enough to be a grandfather (HER grandfather, in fact).

    • Delogu says:

      She’s old enough to drink in their country, and make her own decisions. What’s your problem with a woman’s choice?

  28. Dtab says:

    I have heard of daddy issues…..grandad issues is a new one for me :)

  29. A says:

    Men like this get with young women like her because they want someone to control. Her age makes that easier for them. They know that younger women are less likely to know themselves, less likely to speak their minds, less aware of what goes into a proper, respectful relationship between equals, and therefore more willing to put up with bullsh-t. They try to rationalize it by saying that younger women are simply more attractive, but at least a small part of that reality is just the fact that no woman their age will put up with them and they know it.

  30. Jas says:

    She better get money, opportunity, and the freedom to leave this predator when she chooses.

  31. minx says:


  32. iconoclast59 says:

    I can’t imagine how jaded and cynical these young women must be to sign up for this. I was much more starry-eyed about relationships and dating at that age, and I can only think that these women will wind up bitter before their time. It’s very sad.

  33. serena says:

    I don’t effing care how rich he is, he’s just gross and disgusting. And apparently, seems like now he’s also a predator.

  34. BW says:

    I was at restaurant in the designer mall in my city, and I went to the ladies room. I overheard a 20 something talking to a 40 something. They were both big haired, long nailed, heavily makeuped, tight clothed women. The younger one said, “I’m not really dating Eddie.” And the older one said, “Well, you have to decide if 2 million is enough, or if you want to go for the big money.” I snort laughed in my toilet stall.

    This girl is obviously going for the big money.

  35. Harla says:

    I just read the story about Lil Pump getting bit by a snake, with a dating pool like this I can see why these young women are going out with geriatric men.

  36. lelbit says:

    Geez i’m 60 and i cant even find any man over 50 who can actually perform and little
    blue pill trust me does not work, im sure these old men cannot do anything. Gross

    • Joanna says:

      For these young girls, they are probably happy the guy can’t have sex! Sucks for you though. My hubby is 43, so am I, I hope his penis stays strong. Maybe you should try younger guys? 😊

  37. Egla says:

    This is a control thing. He can make her do whatever he wants and if she doesn’t obey she looses the perks. All his life he has controlled the people around him. I remember some photos of him and his last wife in Kenya at least a year before the divorce. I could tell she had already checked out but still she posed alongside him and gave a lengthy interview. He would chip in time to time to correct her as her answers were short and sarcastic. But also I remember in the beginning he tried to make her happen in the Italian TV. He basically bought a program for her. It didn’t help that she wasn’t good at anything. She was just beautiful. And when asked he was self aware enough to say that he wouldn’t have married her if she wasn’t beautiful and she wouldn’t have married him if he wasn’t rich.
    He is many things but stupid he is not. And he is generous at least so this girl, if she lasts, will gain some coin (in a way or another she is there to gain something material).
    Also, don’t remember where I read it, he is seeing his daughter with Heidi. I think he let her go in the beginning and ask for a paternity test because he didn’t believe a short fling could produce a baby. Later he acknowledged her but said he wouldn’t be a good father to her due to his age and that’s why he let Sale to be the father. Then he went on to have a baby with his last wife because she was young and wanted one. Maybe that’s when he started looking for his daughter. I know that Heidi went ahead with her life pretty quickly and gave her a family from the start and went out of his control so he took his sweet time.

    I want to be a fly in the wall and hear what they say to each other. But keep my eyes closed. Don’t want to see them doing things.

  38. Annabel says:

    Yeah, my immediate reaction to this story is “eww.” But upon further reflection, is that a privileged position to take here? Because the moral lines blur a little for me when I look back at my early twenties. Now I’m 40 and financially comfortable, but I come from a working class family and I have horribly vivid memories of what it was like to sometimes have to choose between rent and groceries when I was 20. If some hypothetical extravagantly wealthy senior citizen had rolled up with cash in exchange for my body, well… I don’t THINK I would have signed up for that arrangement, but I do think I would have seriously considered it.

  39. SJR says:

    Just wanted to say that I saw a recent pic of Woody Allen , 83, and his current wife Soon-ye, early 50s, in which they are walking together and she looks like his carer. Completely.
    Wonder if she thinks it’s all worth it? Or, is she thinking..Geez, is he gonna live forever?
    Still awful in every respect!

    I am certain that with their control issues, wealth, etc…These old geezers have their estates locked down. Would you sell your youth to these creeps? Not me. I am used to being poor.

  40. Nikki* says:

    So gross and ridiculous.

  41. Naddie says:

    Her stomach is made of steel. People like her should be studied.
