One of Ireland’s top models, 20-year-old Thalia Heffernan, has been dating dublin graffiti artist Maser, who has been dubbed the “Irish Banksy”. And it seems like Maser has an eye for beautiful blondes, as he was previously involved for 5 years with Vogue Williams!
That relationship ended in 2011, after which Vogue went on to meet and marry Brian McFadden. Thalia, in the meantime, had been dating bouncer Andrew McGuinness for much of 2015, before breaking up towards the end of the year, and it seems as though she hooked up with Maser, whom she has known for many years, soon afterwards. Only 3 days ago, Thalia posted a cryptic message on her instagram account, showing a poster of a large love heart with the words “Maser Love You” – we should have guessed that something was up!
According to a source who spoke to The Herald newspaper, “They share mutual friends and have known each other for a long time so it is very natural for the both of them.” Thalia appeared in last month’s issue of VIP magazine, posing in a series of beautiful shots, but refused to talk about her private life at the time, saying “It’s actually not something that I like talking about – some things I like to keep private!”
Posing with her TV producer father Gerard, however, Thalia did reveal that her parents had just separated a year ago, but that there was no bad blood between them. “I wouldn’t be able to do anything without him,” she said of her dad. “He’s proud of me and sees how far I’ve come.”
