“I took Rob out to dinner when we very first started working on Top Model,” Tyra Banks explains, per The Grio. “They [tabloids] don’t say that my best friend with red hair was at the table with us,” Banks adds. Although she admits she and Rob Evans have a close relationship, she insists that they are closer to siblings than lovers.
“He is like my little brother,” she admits. “I am his sister … Maybe he may have a crush on his sister, but he’s my little brother.” Shortly after dispelling this rumor, Banks met photographer Erik Asia while working together on the Norwegian version of “Top Model.” The duo quickly became a couple and welcomed their son York Banks Asia in 2016.
