The two first met in November 1994 during a blind date set up by their mutual friend. However, Jonathan clicked with Simon only on the second date, where they watched Mike Leigh's film Abigail’s Party (1977). Jonathan talked about his relationship with Simon with the New York Times in 2008:

We have a ridiculous amount in common. We both hate smug people. We both rant at the same things. We both drink a lot of tea.

Jonathan's partner is a creative director of Barney's New York and also works as a columnist for The New York Observer. Simon is also a familiar face in showbiz with appearances in shows such as Conan (2012), Gossip Girl (2011), and Making It (2018).


Until 2016, Jonathan owned the 1960s A-frame cabin on New York’s Shelter Island but put it in the market in 2013. So, Jonathan and Simon bought land on the opposite side of the same island with panoramic views of Gardiners Bay and Orient Point.

There, they built a house rich with great precision and built under the contract of the firm Gray Organschi Architecture.
