You'll Never Guess Who Russell Crowe's Been Dating
Don't Go Changing to Try and Please Russell Crowe
Russell Crowe, who's been back in the public eye of late to help promote his new movie "Les Miserables," had a crummy October. He and his wife of nearly 10 years, Australian singer Danielle Spencer, separated and he was reportedly bereft. Not so much anymore as apparently the Academy Award winner has found a new girl..
So, who has been helping to lift the 48 year-old Aussie's spirits? None other than Billy Joel's ex wife, Katie Lee Joel. (Not to be confused with Kathy Lee Gifford.)How did the actor get hooked up with the TV host/foodie columnist?
Here's the sccop from the New York Post's Page Six gossip column:
Russell Crowe has been spending time with foxy foodie Katie Lee in the wake of his split from Danielle Spencer.
Sources spotted Crowe and Billy Joel’s pretty brunette ex cuddling in front of a romantic fireplace in the Drawing Room of the Greenwich Hotel at 3 a.m. Sunday morning.
“They seemed to be in an intense flirtatious conversation,” the spy told us exclusively, adding, “They looked really into each other.” Lee was seen at the hotel later in the day: “Katie was still at the hotel Sunday afternoon,” our spy said. “She was seen with Crowe at the same fireplace at about 2 p.m.”
Crowe is in town filming “A Winter’s Tale” with Colin Farrell. A source close to the project tells us, “Katie has been seen around with Russell,” but the two have just been seeing each other casually. Lee, 31, who split with Joel after five years of marriage in 2009 and won a massively generous payout, was also at Joe’s Pub on Saturday to watch Crowe, 48, perform with an all-star crowd.
Hmmm. She's only 31, he's 48, that could be a red flag right there. But then again, she clearly knows what she's after and with a settlement that huge, she must be living large.
