NYC media outlet Page Six was the first to break this news and reveals what led to the split.
“Tinsley thinks Scott is a great guy … it was too much too soon,” says an insider close to Tinsley about the break up.
“She started filming ‘Housewives’ after escaping a really bad relationship and then jumped right into a whirlwind romance with Scott. She didn’t have time to heal or fully settle back into life in New York,” the source adds.
Indeed Tinsley has been very open about what she has alleged was an abusive relationship with her ex Florida sugar scion Nico Fanjul. They ultimately split back in April 2016, following Tinsley’s infamous arrest for trespassing at his Palm Beach home.
Tinsley, 42, started dating Scott earlier this year after her RHONY castmate Carole Radziwill set them up on a blind date. This news is somewhat surprising as it was just reported last month that Scott, whose company is based in Chicago, was planning to buy a home in NYC so he and Tinsley could move in together.
Page Six however reports that there is still a chance for a future reconciliation.
“Long-distance relationships are never easy. They remain friendly and Tinsley hasn’t closed the door to a possible reconciliation in the future. She wishes him the best, but only time will tell if distance shall make the heart grow fonder,” the source added.
