Published reports say that the 48-year-old Couric is now back with her former boyfriend Tom Werner, co-owner of the Boston Red Sox baseball team and an executive with the Carsey/Werner television production company. The report also said that Botti is “heartbroken” and feels that Couric “used him to make Tom jealous.”

Although Botti has frequently been on the road during the past few months, he was spotted with Couric occasionally in his hometown of New York on several occasions, including once at a New York Knicks basketball game.
