Sophia Hutchins was photographed stepping out in New York City with a male friend following her admission that she and Caitlyn Jenner barely see each other because of her busy schedule as a new CEO.

On Saturday, the 23-year-old businesswoman rocked a plaid coat with gold buttons over a brown velvet mini dress and wore white trainers when she headed to Benjamin Steakhouse for a meal. In the snaps she shared of her stunning get-up on Instagram, Hutchins is looking fabulous while giving off a sultry corporate vibe.

Interestingly, it appears she wasn’t alone when she dined at the NYC restaurant that night since a man in an all-black ensemble is also present in two of the photos she uploaded to her social media account. She even acknowledged the company of her male friend since she captioned her post: “New York nights with this guy.”

Sophia’s outing with a male friend comes a few weeks after her revelation that she and Caitlyn do not spend a lot of time together anymore. According to her, it’s become quite a challenge for them to see each other regularly because of their busy schedules.

“I just haven’t had that much free time, and it’s like I’ve been traveling between L.A. and N.Y. but I haven’t really been … It’s like I barely see her. Our schedules are both just insane,” Hutchins said in an interview with Life & Style at the Badgley Mischka SS20 Runway Show at Spring Studio.

When the Pepperdine University graduate moved in with the “I Am Cait” star last year, the two of them became inseparable that their undeniable closeness sparked rumors that they could be romantically involved with each other. However, they slammed the rumors and clarified that they are more of business partners.

Since Sophia’s “health + technology” company called Lumasol is going to be based in New York, she is currently busy preparing for the launch of the company and its first suncare product in the spring of 2020. But whenever she has spare time, she still goes home to Jenner’s Malibu hilltop mansion to spend time with the 69-year-old reality star.

When asked if her partner is supportive of her business venture, Hutchins said that Kylie Jenner’s father is like her “cheerleader.” She also noted that they always support each other and so they are “a really good team in that way.”
