There she is! Days after Danny Amendola was spotted with a mystery blonde beach date in Miami, Us Weekly has exclusively identified her as social media influencer Emily Tanner.

Tanner, 24, was spotted soaking up the sun in a teeny white bikini alongside the shirtless professional football player, 33, on Saturday, May 11. The twosome were seen together again the following day as they strolled to breakfast.

The Michigan native continued to show off her toned physique for their second outing, sporting a lace bandeau top, shorts and aviator sunglasses. Though Amendola and Tanner appeared to be flirty, they were not spotted holding hands.

Amendola and Tanner’s two-day rendezvous comes after his recent split from on-off girlfriend Olivia Culpo. The athlete made headlines in April after he slammed the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit model in a since-deleted Instagram post for wanting “to be noticed on the internet and in Hollywood to make money” after she was spotted getting cozy with Zedd at Coachella. The following day, the Detroit Lions player took “blame for the miscommunication.”

While Amendola and his rumored flame were enjoying their time together, Culpo, 27, was also in Miami celebrating her belated birthday. Zedd, 29, was in attendance at her bash, with a source telling Us the two “are still hooking up” but “not dating.”
