Susan Sarandon's representative has dismissed rumors the actress has embarked on a romance with a man 32 years her junior following her split from longterm partner Tim Robbins. The "Dead Man Walking" star announced on Wednesday, December 23, 2009 she had parted ways with actor Robbins over the summer 2009, after 23 years together.
The revelation sparked claims Sarandon had found love with her 31-year-old business partner Jonathan Bricklin, who co-owns New York table tennis bar Spin with the actress, but her rep Teal Cannaday insists their relationship is solely professional. Cannaday says, "The rumors are absolutely untrue. Susan's relationship with Jonathan Bricklin is strictly a business one."
