Fil-Am model Kelsey Merritt was spotted on vacation with Hollywood star Jared Leto in Italy this week, along with her fellow Victoria's Secret models Jasmine Tookes and Izabel Goulart.

Merritt and Leto were seen scaling rock cliffs in Sardinia while sailing on a yacht trip, in photos published by the Daily Mail.

The adventurous pair took a smaller boat to Tavolaro Island on the northeast coast of Sardinia and climbed a rock wall facing the sea with a group of what appeared to be tour guides or rock climbing instructors.

While performing this daring activity, Merritt, 25, wore a black one-piece swimsuit, while Leto, 50, opted for a straw hat, a white long-sleeved T-shirt, and dark shorts. Both wore special shoes that appeared to be for protecting their feet while rock climbing.

The celebrities had reportedly been enjoying a European holiday on a mega yacht in the French Riviera, making stops in Italy and Spain.

Merritt's fellow models Tookes and Goulart were aboard the yacht too.

Kelsey Merritt is known for being the first Filipino-American to walk the Victoria's Secret Fashion Show runway, back in 2018. She has also been featured in Sports Illustrated's annual Swimsuit Issue since 2019.

Leto and Merritt had both attended the LuisaViaRoma for UNICEF charity gala on the Italian island of Capri on Saturday (July 30). The gala event boasted around 900 guests, including celebrities like Jamie Foxx, Leonardo DiCaprio, Casey Affleck, Spike Lee, Haim and Ansel Elgort. Pop star Jennifer Lopez performed at the gala.

Kelsey Merritt, who's currently based in New York City, certainly seems to like sun-soaked vacations. Earlier in June when she was back in the Philippines, she posted photos of her stay at the luxury Pangulasian Island Resort near El Nido, Palawan.
