The couple have always maintained that they are only very close friends, although Rubicondi has previously said that a romantic reunion is always possible.
Last summer appears to have been relatively low-key for Ivana – who typically traveled to Europe during the warmer months, but appeared to have chosen not to travel far, possibly due to the COVID pandemic.
Instead, the businesswoman has been spotted in New York on a number of occasions, most notably enjoying several fun dinners with Rubicondi as recently as August.
Ivana announced their “official” separation in June 2019 before escaping to Saint-Tropez for the summer, admitting that the time she spends on the French Riviera was part of the reason she and her beau longtime couldn’t make their relationship work.
“The relationship just took its course,” she told Page Six at the time. “Rossano spends a lot of time in Italy and I’ve spent a lot of time in New York, Miami and Saint-Tropez, and he has to work.”
“The long-distance relationship really doesn’t work,” she added. “We had a great time and are friends. The split was amicable.
Rubicondi, meanwhile, claimed he always had “good respect” for the businesswoman after their breakup, but later made it clear that her children were a source of anger in their romance.
He pointed out that he was not after the matriarch’s fortune and suggested that money was often something he fought for with his children.
The couple divorced just eight months after their Midsummer Night’s Dream-themed nuptials.
Ivana said she had actually requested the separation three months previously and blamed the separation on herself and Rubicondi’s different preferences for the cities they chose to live in.
The couple had also faced rumors that Rubicondi had been unfaithful to them while filming the Survivor TV show in Honduras, which Ivana denied in her Page Six column.
