Things are heating up fast for Kim Dotcom and his new love, 21-year-old Auckland student Elizabeth Donnelly.

The Megaupload founder shared a photo of the gorgeous brunette on his Instagram account yesterday, writing: “I’m the luckiest man alive”.

Kim, 42, and Elizabeth began texting back and forth eight weeks ago and are now living together in Kim’s rented waterfront penthouse.

The relationship is Kim’s first since his wife of five years, Mona, left him in May 2014.

“I thought I would never love again,” Kim told the New Zealand Herald.

“My heart turned ice cold after my separation from Mona. To love and be loved is what happiness is all about. I’m so happy that I met Liz and that I can feel those butterflies again.”

According to the Herald, Elizabeth is studying law and business at Auckland University of Technology (AUT).

“She is much smarter than me and I love that about her,” Kim said of his new love.

Later, he shared another photo of Elizabeth with three of his children using the simple caption “#Family”.

Meanwhile, Mona’s relationship with 21-year-old video game devotee Jeriel Manapouri is stronger than ever. The couple were snapped shopping up a storm in Takapuna recently, with Mona flashing a big smile as the two indulged in a few kisses and cuddles on the street.

Kim originally hired a 17-year-old Jeriel to be a ‘gaming playmate’ for Mona’s two younger brothers. When news of the pair’s romance emerged, Kim angrily tweeted that he had “helped and hired a 17-year-old troubled kid to play Xbox with Mona’s brother. One year ago, he decided to play with Mona”.

However, tensions between Kim and Mona seem to have cooled off since then, with Kim even tweeting his support for Mona’s possible involvement with the upcoming Auckland version of Real Housewives.
