Less than a month after being acquitted of involvement in murder with ex-Italian boyfriend Raffaele Sollecito, Amanda Knox seems to be settling back in life – and may have moved on to a new boyfriend already.
Knox was spotted in Seattle walking down the street holding hands with an unidentified man by her side. Pictures reveal the two holding hands and getting a bit intimate, suggesting they might have something going on beyond a friendship.
Sollecito, who is back home in Italy, had previously shared that he wants to fly out to America and visit Knox, and said that they still talk every day.
“Certainly I will go and see Amanda in Seattle. She’s invited me and I accepted with joy. I could go at any moment. I really want to see her again,” Sollecito stated.
“We need each other,” he added.
His comments had sparked rumors suggesting that the two were set to reunite, but the Italian’s reaction to Knox’s photos with the new man remains to be heard.
Although the 24-year-old Seattle native had largely remained mum about any potential reunion with Sollecito, the father of her ex-boyfriend stated that he did not want his son to have anything to do with Knox again.
Dr. Francesco Sollecito expressed his hopes that his son would find a “good Italian girl” back home, and move on from his ordeal which threatened to “ruin his life.”
Amanda Knox has also had to face accusations of being insensitive towards the family of murdered British student Meredith Kercher, who have set up a fund trying to get the case reopened and put Knox behind bars again. Knox was spotted out partying on Halloween, which marked the eve of the four-year anniversary of Kercher’s death.
Stephanie Kercher, the sister of the slain Meredith, also came out with an open letter recently sharing some of her fond memories of her sister, and describing her disbelief and horror at the news of her murder.
