Yesterday, Kim Dotcom revealed he was the “luckiest man alive” as he went public with a brand new romance – but it appears the object of his affections only ended things with her previous boyfriend just over a week ago.

According to the Herald, Kim knew of Elizabeth’s relationship with socialite Mark Harrison and even encouraged the 21-year-old student to go on holiday with him earlier this year, giving her time to choose between the two men.

Elizabeth broke it off with Mark shortly after they returned from their Thailand getaway, and soon she had moved into Kim’s waterfront penthouse in Auckland.

“I’m in love. We’re in love. This is not some fling – this is serious,” Kim told the Herald of the pair’s budding romance.

As for Elizabeth, the third-year business and law student says her family and friends are all aware of the relationship and support it.

“All my friends know and are cool with it. My family are fine with it too,” she told the Herald.

Judging from the family photos on Kim’s Instagram page, Elizabeth has already settled into life with the Internet tycoon and is even getting close with his five children. 

In fact, Elizabeth revealed the couple’s first date was spent at Kim’s penthouse while his estranged wife Mona and the children were present.

“I came over here. We just hung out inside and the kids were here and Mona was here but we got on well,” Elizabeth told the Herald. Kim and Mona, his wife of five years, separated in May 2014. 

The petite Filipina beauty is now dating 21-year-old Jeriel Manapouri, who was originally taken on by Kim to be a gaming playmate for Mona’s two younger brothers at Kim’s former $35 million property in Coatesville.

Kim and Mona were married for five years before their separation in May 2014.
