Brett’s night out with Samantha—who’s worked at tattoo studios in Germany, Switzerland and the Netherlands—comes more than seven months after his split with Tina Louise. In December, the realtor confirmed in an Instagram Q&A that he was “single” less than a year after becoming official with the model and restauranteur.

Tina, I am so grateful. He later shared his gratitude via an Instagram post, thanking him for his love, laughter, smile and friendship. “Tina is the most genuine… loving…beautiful woman I could have ever dreamed of…with the most breathtaking smile. “I will forever love and be her friend.”

Tina, what do you think? After Tina assured her fans she was still very close to Brett after their split, Sugar Taco’s co-owner posted a comment on Brett’s post to let him know the feelings were mutual.

“Awwww you lil s–t!” she quipped. “Love you always x.”
