Steven Bartlett’s girlfriend, Melanie Vaz Lopes

In February 2022, Steven Bartlett revealed that he is back together with his old flame, Melanie Vaz Lopes. The French entrepreneur and influencer (who goes under the Instagram handle of Meloai) had previously dated Bartlett for four years. However, their relationship had ended when Bartlett decided to put his career first. Melanie is a businesswoman herself, running a beauty and wellbeing business called Auraya.

However, a few years on and Bartlett made a grand gesture to get his girlfriend back. It has been reported the millionaire businessman flew the 22 hours to Bali in order to woe Lopes back. Pretty cute huh?

The pair then took their rekindled relationship public on the first night of his Diary of a CEO tour. This is the live version of his popular podcast. During the tour, Steven opened up with a confession of his love for Melanie.

In true millionaire fashion, his love declaration was serenaded with the House Gospel Choir singing Stevie Wonder’s, I’ll Be Loving You Always. Love heart confetti fell from the ceiling reducing his girlfriend to tears!
