Former Real Housewives of New Jersey star Dina Manzo has said goodbye to her home state and hello to California, but that’s not all… she also has a new man in her life! Dina has been dating 35 year-old Dave Cantin who was was co-owner and vice president of the hugely successful Hyundai dealership Brad Benson Auto Group based in Monmouth Junction, New Jersey. The dealership recently sold and now he is a commercial broker in California.
Cantin filed for divorce from his wife Melissa in January, and claims he has been separated from his wife for more than a year. He confirmed his relationship with Dina to the Daily Mail. “I’ve been separated for more than a year and met Dina after that separation. I filed for divorce in January.”
Tommy Manzo told the site that his divorce with Dina is almost finalized. “We’ve been separated for two years and we’re going through finalizing our divorce hopefully in the next few weeks. Now she has her boyfriend, I have my girlfriend we’ve moved on with our lives.”
But the site reports that sources close to Manzo and Cantin say that Dina’s move out West was paid for by her younger boyfriend, who she started seeing over a year ago.
“He’s her sugar-daddy. He’s the one who’s put her up in California. She lived in Malibu for a while but now she’s in Beverly Hills and he’s paying the bills,” a source tells the site. “He flies out to be with her and stays at her place and she goes back and forth between California and New Jersey a lot to see him. She stays in a hotel when she visits.”
