Popular influencer Gracie Piscopo has been forced to deny rumours she’s moved on with another man, after her crypto trader boyfriend was charged with murdering his own mother.
The Instagram star and Perth local, 26, who has more than a million followers, has reportedly been seen out with New Zealander Daniel Classen, 27 – with Daily Mail Australia obtaining screenshots at the centre of the rumours.
Mr Classen sparked intrigue recently when he shared an image from a Greek restaurant, Viamas, featuring what looked to be Ms Piscopo’s back, with her bag slung over her shoulder.
He cryptically captioned the picture: ‘Another bland and boring season coming to an end’ followed by the wink emoji.
Mr Classen also recently shared an image of a candlelit dinner on his ‘close friends’ Instagram story – which appears to have been held inside Ms Piscopo’s home.

In a photo, two place settings are seen on the dining table, along with a bottle of red wine.
The living room appeared to be exactly same as Ms Piscopo’s, with a photo from the influencer’s account months earlier showing the exact same layout and furniture.
Mr Classen had also shared a picture of him holding four bottles of Penfolds wine, one of which was seen on the dining table.
Both Mr Classen and Ms Piscopo also follow each other on Instagram but it’s unclear if the pair are anything more than friends.
Mr Classen popped up at the Miss Universe WA finals earlier this month but didn’t give anything away as to his new friendship.
‘Gracie has a great kid,’ he told PerthNow. Ms Piscopo has a four-year-old son Romeo with Andre Rebelo, 26.
A spokesperson for Ms Piscopo has denied that she and Mr Classen are in a relationship.

Rebelo was last year charged with murder after his mother Colleen Rebelo, 58, was found dead at her Perth home on May 25, 2020.
He had previously been charged with five counts of forging a document with intent to defraud.
Rebelo is accused of forging medical records relating to his mother, including information requests, a death certificate and her final will.
Her death was originally declared not suspicious with no obvious signs of injury but the fraud investigation led to the more serious charge two years later.
Ms Piscopo said she was in a ‘complete state of shock and utter disbelief’ when Rebelo’s charges came to light.
He has noticeably disappeared from her Instagram and Ms Piscopo has not been seen at his court appearances.
