After announcing his divorce from Bobby Boyd, Million Dollar Listing star Josh Flagg states he is in a new relationship
The 36-year-old reality television star said that he and Boyd had discreetly split up a few months before announcing their divorce on social media, and that he began seeing his new partner a few weeks following their split.
Only two weeks after announcing his divorce from ex-husband Bobby Boyd, Josh Flagg is letting the world know he’s back on the market.
But, as the star of Million Dollar Listing: Los Angeles tells PEOPLE exclusively, he didn’t start dating his new boyfriend right after announcing his and Boyd’s divorce on Instagram on March 4th. The exes had been separated for a few weeks before Josh began dating the new man, and they had been apart for months.
“I did start seeing someone after Bobby and I split up,” Flagg says. “Because I was married, I didn’t want to date anyone. We didn’t go out on a date until after Bobby and I divorced.”
Although their personal relationship is young, the real estate billionaire and his beau have been friends for five years. He claims that it wasn’t until he was single that sparks soared and both parties made a move.
“It was a shared feeling. For a while, we were pals. It just happened on its own “Flagg reveals that they’ve been dating for a few months. “I really like him, and he’s a really kind man.”
They have a lot in common as well. “He’s also a real estate agent,” says Flagg.
Flagg has been residing at the Beverly Hills Hotel since his relationship with Boyd ended, according to a source who spoke to PEOPLE recently.
He claims he wants to keep his current living arrangement quiet, but he’s delighted to start the next chapter of his life with the new home he just bought – a $9.2 million Beverly Hills estate.
Last week, it was discovered that he bought the 7,100 sq. ft. mansion in an off-market sale for an undisclosed sum.
“The new house is really remarkable since it’s a 1926 Italian Palladian Villa that hasn’t been on the market in over 60 years,” Flagg says, adding that the repairs will take nearly three years and that his move-in date is yet TBD. “I’ve had my eye on this house for a long time.”
For the time being, Flagg is concentrating on his business and maintaining good relations with his ex
“.Right now, I’m thinking about the house I recently bought, the business I’m operating, and getting back to normal life,” Flagg adds. “I’m doing fantastically well. I’m hoping Bobby is doing well as well. My greatest want is for everyone to emerge from this happy and friends, appreciating the wonderful times we shared, and moving on in a positive manner.”
With posts on their own social media accounts, Flagg and Boyd declared the dissolution of their marriage while expressing their continued goodwill for one another.
“Being married for four and a half years is a long period,” Flagg adds. “It’s not the longest time, but it’s still a lot of memories.” “It would also be wonderful to be able to retain those memories and embrace them in a positive way in the future.”
