The revelation comes after photos showing Mona, 26, nibbling the shoulder of 20-year-old Jeriel Manapoir were published in this week's Women's Day.

Dotcom has taken to Twitter to reveal how the pair met.

Women's Day reports Mr Manapori has become an "important figure" in the lives of Mona and Kim's five children. She has also splashed out on a $80,000 Mercedes Benz as a gift for him.

Mona and Dotcom ended their marriage nine months ago.
