A former model has ditched her celebrity chef husband for her twin sister’s partner, it is claimed.

Charlotte Bonstrom, 50, who lives in New York but is originally from Sweden, has two kids with 62-year-old Vittorio Assaf, co-founder of Serafina Restaurants.

The pair had been married for 20 years but are now in the process of getting divorced after Charlotte cheated with fashion executive Thierry Gillier, 62, it is claimed.

They began seeing each other during the pandemic – despite the fact Thierry was married to Charlotte’s twin sister Cecilia.

She reportedly found out in March 2020 and appeared to post about it on Instagram, writing: "Maturity is learning to walk away from people & situations that threaten your peace of mind, self-respect, values, morals or self-worth."

The couple have since split, and a source told the New York Post’s Page Six section that it is unlikely the sisters will ever be friends again, as the affair "broke Cecilia's heart".

Vittorio, originally from Italy, said: "Charlotte and I are in the process of getting divorced – she wants to get remarried.

"[She] is getting married to Thierry Gillier, the ex-husband of her sister."

Cecilia is still artistic director of Thierry’s fashion label, it is claimed.

On the company website, she is described as "the other half of Zadig & Voltaire" whose style "plays in perfect balance to founder Thierry Gillier".

Earlier this week, Charlotte liked one of Vittorio’s Instagram posts as he enjoyed a day out at the Statue of Liberty.

Back on May 9, she also posted: "Happy Mother's Day to all the Mamas! My 2 happiest days May 7, 2002 + August 20, 2006. I wish I could do it all over again.

Since Cecilia’s cryptic messages, neither her sister nor husband appear to have featured in her Instagram posts.

Charlotte told Page Six: "This is my private life. You can write whatever you want.

"I have two children in the middle, and I care about them more than the New York Post."
