Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star Adrienne Maloof is denying living with her new boyfriend, Sean Stewart.
The 52-year-old businesswoman and reality star recently split from her husband, plastic surgeon Paul Nassif, and has been seen with Stewart, 32.
"This started as a business relationship and now we're casually dating," she told People but she wanted to make sure everyone knows, "It's casual, real casual."
As for reports that he’s a hard partier and has been on Celebrity Rehab, Maloof says those days are behind him and he is "a lot more mature than a lot of 60-year-olds at this time in his life.”
“That was when he was a young kid," she said. "He's been clean and sober for years."
Answering to critics about the age difference, Maloof says her family “has always been in youth-oriented businesses" and "I'm a modern business woman. I don't think of age."
With Stewart being the son of Rod Stewart and Maloof’s family owning a Vegas casino and other businesses, she said they can relate to each other.
“He understands my world, the entertainment industry and being a public figure," she said, adding of his father, "His dad is lovely. A very nice person."
Still, Perez Hilton reports that Maloof’s friends aren’t approving of the relationship, with a source saying “Sean has a reputation as a womanizer, and he doesn’t have steady employment. The most distressing thing to Adrienne’s friends is that she is already getting very defensive of Sean and his bad boy ways. The relationship is moving extremely fast and no one wants to see Adrienne get hurt.”
