Bobby Tonelli reveals new love
by Charlene Chua

New love

Bobby Tonelli admitted he had a rough time during his much publicised break-up with Joanne Peh last year.

But the American man of Italian descent is thankful that he is now in a happy place.

The 38-year-old FLY entertainment artist has found someone with whom he sees a future.

Tonelli, who has been seeing a Singapore-based Indonesian woman since May, is awaiting the result of his Singapore PR application.

He said: "I love living here and I want to call Singapore home. I just hope it won't be too expensive.

"My girlfriend, as cheesy as it sounds, makes me want to be a better man.

"What I'm focusing on now is having a family of my own - get married, be a dad, have two kids. I am totally over Joanne."

When asked how he felt about Peh declaring to the local media that her current beau Qi Yuwu was The One, Tonelli said he "hopes that's the case".

"I've moved on and am ready to let go," he said.

"I wish Joanne all the best and if Qi Yuwu makes her happy, then that's great."

Tonelli said his girlfriend, who is also 38 years old, is about 1.65m tall, slim, fair-skinned and has long hair.

""What I'm focusing on now is having a family of my own - get married, be a dad, have two kids. (So far so good. Here's where he loses his attempt to be mature) I am totally over Joanne."
Was it necessary? It's a remarks that's just self consolation and clearly whoever he's squeezing now is a substitute for his loss. And Bobby, it's 'Have two kids, be a dad'. Not the other way round.

My goodness! This FT is unbelievable! First there's public announcement of soliciting PR status from Singapore to Indonesia through relationships and now this??!! Getting fagbuddies to endorse his girlfriend? No wonder Joanne Peh dumped him. He may be getting older in age but his mind is shrinking! And of all fagbuddies, Allan Wu? The former star hub "I'm on a roll" extra who's own marriage broke down, to comment? Is there some newly formed "celeb" losers club being formed here? And please, you don't look any better or matured or decent with spectacles. Go back.

So much on the break-ups and new found romance of these westernised asians and Tonelli, ultimately it voiced down to the 3-letter word SEX. What else can it be? True Love, you can jolly well forget it!

Indonesia woman likely Muslim. He might need to cut certain things if they get married.

He and Joanne Peh had compatibility issues. Both had years of their life wasted.

Sigh...asian girls never learn. Most of the forummers here are right. all can see her being dumped coming for a long time but she was still waiting. Lucky for her she got out now and not much much later. When a man is tired of the relationship, this is what he will say graciously. His next victim may now be already in the fold.
