Maria Bello, 48, Dating 29-Year-old Elijah Allan-Blitz After Breaking Up With Girlfriend Clare Munn
By Jackie Willis
Maria Bello has found romance once again.
ET confirms that the 48-year-old Coyote Ugly actress broke up with her longtime girlfriend, Clare Munn, and is now dating Elijah Allan-Blitz. The 29-year-old actor appears to have been a mutual friend of both Bello and Munn as he's Instagrammed a few photos of him spending time with the women. "Two of my favorite beings on this planet @officialmariabello and @claremunn at the #HRC gala," Allan-Blitz captioned a pic in March 2015.
In Nov. 2013, Bello made headlines when she opened up about her relationship with a woman in an op-ed for the New York Times. Bello -- who has a 15-year-old son with TV executive Dan McDermott -- went on to publish a book in regards to sexuality, titled Whatever... Love Is Love: Questioning the Labels We Give Ourselves.
When ET spoke to the actress earlier this month at the Human Rights Campaign Los Angeles Gala Dinner to honor Nina Jacobson, she was very candid about her sexual preferences. "I'm a whatever," she said. "I think sexuality in general [wasn't] really talked about before, and the millennial generation, this generation, is quite different. Now I think it's on Facebook or Match.com. There's 52 things you can modify for your sexual preferences. So, instead of going through 52 of them, I just say I'm a whatever, whatever it is. Love is love."
Bello shared a similar sentiment when ET chatted with her in April 2015 about her book. "People change sexual preferences throughout their lifetime," she explained. "I know all relationships, partnerships are fluid. They will never ever stay the same."
