Love is in the air for iconic singer-songwriter Don McLean, and he stops at nothing to show off his model beau, who is 49-years younger than him.


After several speculations and rumors about an ongoing relationship between 73-year-old Don McLean and 24-year-old Paris Dylan who is a Playboy model, the duo simultaneously posted a photo of their trip to the city of love on their social media handle.


An online post from Don confirmed the news of their romantic involvement. The upload on his Twitter captioned:

“Don& Paris at the Eiffel Tower.”


While on Paris’ page, she posted the same photo of their visit with the caption:

“A dream with my love.”

It appears the pair are head-over-heels for each other, as they hangout tirelessly and shares pictures to confirm just how thrilled they are to be in each other’s life!

However, long before Don openly declared any form of intimacy with his young model girlfriend, she had put up a plethora of photos on her Instagram page to show off her invaluable love for her man.

On one occasion, she posted while they were both in the BBC studios, and the caption read:


“Don was on BBC Breakfast today, and the whole production crew had to run out after to get photos with him, such a nice time in Manchester! #england #bbcbreakfast.”


Paris has not stopped to shower her man with praises on several posts online. The pair seems to be just fine. They were rumored to be engaged when she shared a picture where she had a sparkly diamond ring; however, Don’s reps claimed in an interview, that they both have a “professional relationship.”

The “American Pie” singer has had a fair share of love and involvement with women in the past. He was married to Carol Sauvion in 1969, but they lasted for about 36 months before they divorced. Then in 1987, he tied the knot with Patricia Shnier, whom he fathered two kids with, these two also separated after spending close to three decades together.


His newly found young love was a victim of online fraud in 2011, which was targeted at both 17-year-old Paris, and 33-year-old Basketball player, Chris “Birdman” Anderson.  The teenage Paris thought that she had been chatting with Birdman but was reportedly chatting with a Canadian woman, Shelly Chartier.

According to information garnered by "The Blast," she was later arrested and convicted with over five counts of fraud. This story featured in an episode of MTV’s reality show, "Catfish" and Paris starred in it.

Now that Don and his lover have found common ground, we hope their new found happiness last forever!
