Tyra Banks calls it quits with John Utendahl

Tyra Banks is back on the market after ending her three-year romance with investment banker John Utendahl.

Gentlemen, start your engines: Tyra’s back on the market.

The Modelland mogul has called it quits with Wall Streeter John Utendahl.

The buzz has hit the blogosphere almost a week after the finale of her America’s Next Top Model All-Stars series delivered one of the most talked about bait-and-switches in reality TV history.

(We’re guessing John was Team Angelea then?)

Banks and Utendahl have thrown in the towel after a three-year courtship, spywitnesses tell The New York Post. And the split comes as a shock to friends of the former couple, who had predicted that Tyra would eventually settle down with John.

Tyra, 38, first met John, 50, in 2007, but the pair was only publicly revealed as a couple the following year.

The retired catwalker uprooted production on her now-defunct daytime chat show and moved from Los Angeles to New York City after falling for the dashing businessman.

The Top Model host jetted off to the Far East with a female friend to help get over the breakup, “Tyra has gone away with a female friend and has been island-hopping, visiting Bali and taking a spiritual retreat.”

John, who runs an investment bank in New York, has taken a slightly different approach to moving on: He’s reportedly been spotted enjoying drinks at a Manhattan bar with a Russian model.

Earlier this year, Tyra admitted that she hopes to eventually become a mom.

“I definitely want babies,” the former Victoria’s Secret stunner told CNN’s Piers Morgan in April.

Banks admitted, however, that she doesn’t have to be married to fulfill her dreams of parenthood, “I don’t think it’s necessarily necessary.”
