The pair ‘grew closer’ after Dr Teo ended 30 years of marriage and split with his wife Genevieve Agnew in 2018.
Dr Teo, 62, and Ms Agnew met when he was 25 while she was working at hospital as a nurse.
The neurosurgeon had discussed his relationship with his then-wife in several newspaper and TV profiles and public speeches, and his family regularly supported him at black tie galas for his brain cancer research foundation.
Dr Teo publicly announced the pair had split in a statement released in 2020 – saying they had split ‘two years ago but remain friends’.
‘This is something that is entirely private and confidential to us and not a matter of public interest,’ he said.

The statement was made during a turbulent year for the renowned, but controversial neurosurgeon, famous for his reputation of taking on patients who other doctors have deemed inoperable.
Criticism was also heaped on the surgeon over patients paying six figure sums to fund their surgeries, with many turning to crowdfunding platforms, such as GoFundMe.
The high private fees were charged as patients went outside the public system, Dr Teo explained.
Dr Teo previously said he would receive about $8,000 to $15,000 himself from a $120,000 surgery, with the rest shared among the medical team and to pay for costs.
