She is a certified yoga teacher specializing in Jivamukti, an eclectic style of yoga created by David Life and Sharon Gannon in 1984. Jivamukti yoga is known for its celebrity following, and was popularized by stars like Christy Turlington.
Before pursuing yoga professionally, Thibes attended Hunter College in N.Y.C., where she got her bachelor degree in film. Douglas, whose father and grandfather are screen legends, also lists film as one of his interests on Instagram.
And just like Douglas’s famous family, Thibes has performed in front of the camera. According to her IMDB page, she appeared in a film titled La riña in 2008. The Brazilian film explores secret underground fight clubs operating in Sao Paulo. The film won the Bronze Palm Award at the Mexico International Film Festival in 2009.
According to an Instagram account that appears to belong to Douglas, he and Thibes have been linked as far as five weeks back when he first shared a photo of the two.
Douglas’ romantic history has been a subject of public scrutiny as two of past relationships were connected to his struggles with addiction.
In 2009, Douglas’ girlfriend Kelly Sott served seven months in jail after she was arrested for trying to smuggle heroin to him in an electric toothbrush while he was on house arrest.
One of his defense lawyers, Jennifer Ridha, was also caught sneaking drugs to Douglas inside prison after they developed a romantic relationship.
