Tyra Banks and her boyfriend of five years, photographer Erik Asla, have reportedly gone their separate ways.

According to Page Six, the two struggled to keep their relationship intact after the January 2016 birth of their son, York Banks Asla, via surrogate.



Asla has daughters from a previous relationship, to whom Banks has played stepmother. But the two have now decided to call it quits and Asla has moved out of their LA mansion.

A source close to the “America’s Got Talent” host told Page Six, “It came drama-free and they’re co-parenting their young son.”

The source said the two remain friends, and Banks continues to work with Asla professionally.

“He is slated to shoot the photos for the opening credits of . . . the upcoming ‘America’s Next Top Model,’” said the insider. Banks is returning to the reality competition following a hiatus.

Asla, who has shot for Allure, Harper’s Bazaar and German Vogue, met Banks when he was a guest on the Norwegian version of “America’s Next Top Model.”

Back in 2015, Banks said, “We balance each other . . . He’s creative. I’m creative. We just have fun. He’s my best friend.”

Amid the breakup, she also put her Battery Park City apartment on the market for $17.5 million in May.
