Does Mary-Kate Olsen have a new man in her life?
The 34-year-old Full House child star-turned-fashion designer was photographed with a man The Daily Mail and other outlets identified as John Cooper, CEO of financial news analysis agency Brightwire, at a restaurant in New York City on Friday, Feb. 26. The two had dinner with friends outdoors at the Greek restaurant Estiatorio Milos.
"It definitely looks like they are dating," a source told E! News. "There was a lot of flirting going on between Mary Kate and John. They were constantly looking over and smiling at each other."
Mary-Kate bundled up in a black jacket and matching booties and a wool beanie, the latter of which she later removed. She paired the look with cuff earrings.
The former child star-turned-fashion designer sat next to John and was also seen sipping some white wine at the eatery, known for its seafood dishes. According to our source, Mary-Kate and John looked like they "didn't want to leave the restaurant" even after hours of conversation and laughs.
The outing comes a month after she and ex-husband Olivier Sarkozy, a French banker, finalized their divorce at a New York court after reaching a settlement.
Mary-Kate, who is notoriously private in general, has occasionally been photographed out on her own in New York City in recent weeks following news of her divorce. In December, she and twin sister, former frequent co-star and The Row fashion label co-founder Ashley Olsen made a rare joint appearance when they were spotted dining together outside at a different restaurant in the city.
Neither the star nor the businessman have commented about their dinner or about each other.
