Top Hollywood agent Ari Emanuel and fashion designer Sarah Staudinger reportedly got engaged months after their relationship was reconciled.
Insiders confirmed the news at Page Six On Sunday. It comes five weeks after Emanuel listed his entertainment and events company Endeavor Group Holdings Inc – owner of the popular company – public UFC Mixed Martial Arts Organization.
A source reported on Page 6 that 60-year-old Emanuel asked 32-year-old Staudinger about the IPO that debuted Endeavor on the New York Stock Exchange with a valuation of $ 10.8 billion.
The source said the couple reunited a few months ago after breaking up after dating for about two years last fall.
The wedding is sure to have an impressive guest list given the couple’s impressive network of A-listeners.
Staudgeer’s fashion brand Staud has many high profile fans, including Meghan Markle, Kendall Jenner, Bella and Gigi Hadid, Selena Gomez and Lizzo.
Emanuel’s half of the list could include some of the stars he represents – including Charlize Theron, Dwayne Johnson, Martin Scorsese, Larry David, Michael Bay, and Tyler Perry.

Emanuel could also invite some heavy hitters he knows through Endeavor, owned by the UFC, the Hollywood agency WME and the Miss Universe pageant.
Tesla founder Elon Musk is on the company’s board of directors and Patriots owner Robert Kraft is believed to be an investor.
At the family table, Emanuel’s two brothers will likely be seated – former Chicago mayor Rahm Emanuel, and the renowned bioethicist Ezekiel Emanuel.
Last November, it was reported that Emanuel and Staudinger had ended the relationship they started in 2018 – shortly after he filed for divorce from Sarah Addington, his wife of over 20 and mother of his three sons.
At the time, sources reported that Staudinger had lived with Emanuel but moved out after the split.
Variety reported that Emanuel recently bought a $ 27.5 million mansion in Beverly Hills that could serve as the couple’s first home.

Staudinger crashed into the fashion scene in 2015 when she and George Augusto founded their Staud brand – which quickly drew the attention of stars like Emily Ratajkowski, Alexa Chung, Dakota Johnson, Margo Robbie and Nicole Richie.
Staudinger spoke to DailyMail.com about the vision behind their brand over the past year.
“We started STAUD because we believed there was a need in the market for elegant, chic clothing at an affordable price,” she said.
‘We felt like everything out there was too trending or too expensive. Our goal is to create timeless designs with an enhanced aesthetic at a reasonable price. ‘

When asked why she believed her brand was so popular with celebrities, Staudinger said, “I think the rest of the customers seem to be connecting with us for the same reason.
“With our pieces, celebrities can make a statement that fits their style, not just the garment or designer they’re wearing.
“Most of the girls who wear our clothes have amazing tastes and want to express that, and we provide the canvas for them.”
It’s unclear how Staudinger and Emanuel met, but both have connections with many Hollywood stars who could have made an introduction.
The couple’s representatives have not returned requests for comments on their engagement.
