Khloé Kardashian has been on the dating market for several months after we all learned of Tristan Thompson’s second cheating scandal. There was a very quick fling with a rumoured private investor but by all accounts it seems she has remained single. Until now?

At Milan Fashion Week over the weekend the reality star attended the Dolcé & Gabbana show in support of her sister, Kim. A photo has since gone viral from backstage when Kardashian, dressed in a rhinestone covered catsuit, was seen cozying up to Michele Morrone. The response on Twitter was divided with some fans praising the rumoured romance and others, namely local Italians, calling him “corny”.

“No not this dude please 😭 I’m Italian and he’s the definition of corny here in Italy. Stay away from her,” one user wrote. Another added, “Michele Morrone???? From 365 days? Oh I’ve never been more jealous.”

So, er, who exactly is Michele Morrone?

Morrone is a 33-year-old Italian actor who is best known for his role in the Netflix franchise, 365 Days. The R18+ drama is based on the first novel of a trilogy by Blanka Lipińska and threw the internet into spin for a number of very raunchy sex scenes.

Morrone was a little known star before the film, telling People, “Before the movie came out I had 4,000 followers on Instagram. And the night after the movie was released on the platform, I woke up and had 2.6 million followers.” At the time of publishing he now boasts over 15 millions followers.

He shares two sons, Marcus, eight and Brando, five with his ex-wife Rouba Saadeh. When the interview was released in June, he maintained that he wasn’t looking for a relationship. “It’s not because I want to be single, but I have no time. I’m focusing so much on my career, my kids. And I probably haven’t found the right person yet.”

Is Kardashian the right person? Stay tuned. She welcomed her second child via surrogacy in late June. Neither party has responded to request for comment.
