Six months after Emma Watson, 31, was spotted kissing a mystery man, his identity has been revealed!
DailyMail.com reports Watson is dating California businessman Leo Alexander Robinton, who previously worked at a cannabis company. He left his position just months before they were photographed together.
A source told the outlet, “Emma and Leo did everything in their power to keep their relationship private. After they were pictured kissing in October, Leo removed himself from all social media in an attempt to protect their romance.”
It has been reported that Emma and Leo have gotten “serious.” The insider added, “Emma introduced Leo to her parents; she was really serious about him. They went for a meal together back in December at The Ivy restaurant in St John's Wood not long after Emma and Leo first met.”
Leo’s sister Daisy, who is a Harvard alum and scientist, is also following Emma on Instagram, so it’s safe to say she approves of their relationship.
Emma’s rep didn’t shut down the romance rumors, simply saying, “I'm afraid I do not comment on speculation regarding Emma's private life.”
In November, Emma opened up on her love life, telling British Vogue, “I never believed the whole ‘I'm happy single’ spiel. I was like, ‘This is totally spiel.' It took me a long time, but I'm very happy. I call it being self-partnered.”
At the time, Emma played coy about who she was dating, saying, “Not one specific person, but I'm going on dates.”
Emma was last linked to her “Harry Potter” co-star Tom Felton after they hung out in their pajamas, but he denied the rumors. Referencing Emma’s “self-partnered” comments, he told MailOnline.com, “I'm in the same category, to be honest with you, quite happily self-partnered.”
He added, “I think in this day and age it's not a necessity to be with someone just for the sake of being with someone, so I like the idea of self-partnering.”
