Brooks Perlin is free at last.
Katie Couric and her much younger boyfriend have split up according to a representative at ABC. Couric, who is in her 50′s, has been dating Brooks Perlin who is in his late 30′s. The couple have been dating five years and had met at a cancer research fundraising event. Katie had lost her husband to colon cancer and has been very active in raising money for cancer research.
Earlier today, the New York Post reported that Brooks, an entrepreneur, is moving out of Katie’s Upper East Side home.
Reports have stated that the couple has decided to move on. Couric and Brooks have very much enjoyed their time together but have decided it is time to go their separate ways.
Katie is set to host ABC’s “The Year” on December 15th. The show profiles news makers in 2011. Couric stepped down from the “CBS Evening News” anchor desk in May and will start her new syndicated daytime talk show, “Katie,” in September. Perlin is the chief financial officer at Eco Supply Center, an environmentally friendly building-supplies distributor.
This is now the second older woman/younger man break up to hit the news recently following the split of Demi Moore and Ashton Kutcher.
Now tell us what you think of Brooks Perlin. Did Katie Couric rob the cradle, and if so do you welcome the baby back?
