Yolanda Hadid's not ready to start dating again
Yolanda Hadid has admitted she is not ready to start dating yet following her split from David Foster in December 2015.
Yolanda Hadid is not ready to start dating again.
The 53-year-old model split from her 63-year-old husband David Foster in December 2015 but is currently too "shy" to mingle with other men.
Plus Yolanda insists she is too busy to look for love as she is modelling again and she is focused on keeping well while she is in remission with Lyme disease.
On whether she is actively looking for love, she confessed: "You know, I'm still a little shy.
"I'm getting ready, but not yet. I'm just enjoying life, being well. Being up and out and working again. Enjoying my children. You know, life is so full right now. It's all good."
The blonde beauty - who is the mother of model children Bella, Gigi and Anwar Hadid - says she is "90 per cent" on the way to having a clean bill of health.
Yolanda was honoured with the Mother of the Year accolade at Daily Front Row's 3rd Annual Fashion Los Angeles Awards on Sunday (02.04.17), and said she wouldn't have been able to go to the bash if it was last year because of the severe symptoms of the disease, a bacterial infection spread to humans by infected ticks.
Speaking to 'Entertainment Tonight', she said: "I feel great today. I was just saying to my son [Anwar], it's a very different story than last year and the year before, coming to this event. ...I'm, let's say, 90 percent there."
Yolanda is staying positive and hoping she will one day find a cure for the incurable infection.
She added: "I'm still in treatment and living a very conscientious life. As you know, there is no cure for Lyme disease.
"You know, I'm in remission and I'd like to stay there until I find a cure."
Yolanda filed for divorce in January 2016 and admitted her Lyme disease diagnosis put a strain on her relationship with the Canadian musician.
She said at the time: "We had a beautiful love story that I will treasure forever. Unfortunately, it was not strong enough to withstand the circumstances that came our way.
"Chronic, long-term illness is extremely challenging. Not only for the person sick but also for the caregiver. It for sure changed the dynamic of the relationship.
"The truth is that we both worked through the difficult time through the best of our ability, so rather than judging what went wrong, I pick to remember the great times that we shared the last nine years. There was a wealth of good times."
