Julie Bishop, a former foreign minister, sparked romance rumors once again after she was spotted with entrepreneur Luke Hepworth at a party in Sydney on December 1.
The pair were photographed together at the event, which was hosted by Moet & Chandon.
Bishop wore a black dress, and she was able to accessorize with a metallic clutch.
Hepworth, on the other hand, was dressed in a suit and bow tie.
The couple’s recent outings have fuelled speculations about a romance between them.
Commentators on social media called Hepworth a “hunky” individual, but Hepworth denied these claims.
Hepworth, who describes himself as an “adrenaline junkie and adventure philanthropist,” noted that he and Bishop have not been romantically linked.
In November, Hepworth told the Daily Telegraph that he and Bishop were not romantically involved.
He noted that they were simply good friends who were working on a project for a children’s cancer institute.
He also confirmed that they have been attending various charity events together.
