While telling fans what a great weekend the pair had together in LA, The Upside founder added a love-heart emoticon in the caption and cryptically hash-tagged the shot with the words 'fun' and 'him'.

Former model Jodhi has been commenting on Nick's photos a lot lately, comparing the Australian-born photographer to Ryan Gosling.

At the end of last month, the former Mrs Packer posted a photo of Nick sitting on her lap while the pair were out.

The intimate image had many fans guessing the pair were more than friends, after she captioned the photo, telling fans: 'Best two weeks in NYC with this beautiful soul'.

However, the seemingly much younger 'beau' also shared the image on his Instagram account but told his followers the brunette beauty behind him was just an 'old mate'.

Hailing from Melbourne originally but now based in New York, the younger stud with the chiselled jaw, nose ring and distinctive tattoos, appears to be studying.

He has been sharing a range of shots tagged at New York University and captioned a selfie while in bed: 'When u wake up, and it's your first day at a new school'.

It's not entirely sure how the pair know each other but Nick appears to also know fellow American based Australian Renee Bargh.

Fans believed a romantic link between the pair after the ex-wife of billionaire James Packer previously hinted she has finally moved on from her split with fiance Jon Stevens in an earlier social media posting.

The designer went to a New York Yankees game on Sunday and took a snap of the pitch, but it was her cryptic hash-tag 'with him' that prompted speculation.

In an accompanying caption she wrote: 'BASEBALL- NEW YORK YANKEES ⚾️ #nyyankees #fun #baseball #withhim.'

Jodhi and Jon split earlier this year following an alleged domestic dispute.

The Upside creator's time in New York and Los Angeles comes after a work trip with her team to Hawaii.

Jodhi took some of her design team to the island for a 'creative immersion' experience as they dreamed up a new season of the activewear range.
