Are Peter Andre and Elen Rivas dating?
Wednesday 05 January 2011
Yes, we know, we couldn’t believe it either! In what seems like an unusual pairing Peter Andre is apparently dating Frank Lampard’s ex-fiancé Elen Rivas.
The loved-up couple were spotted leaving London's Claridge's Hotel after watching Flashdance: The Musical earlier in the evening.
As they left the hotel the couple stepped into a taxi together and headed home for the evening.
While Peter looked sharp in an all-black suit and shoes, the Spanish model went for a more colourful outfit in a bright pink coat over a blue dress and black sandals.
It seems Spanish Elen and Aussie Pete have been dating for a couple of months.
A representative of Peter Andre told the Daily Star: 'Yes, Peter and Elen are dating. It is early days but this is not just a date, they are in a relationship and have been for a couple of months.'
Peter and mother-of-two Elen are believed to have met through mutual friends in November and instantly hit it off, even spending Christmas together.
According to the Daily Star Peter told friends: 'She is so classy and beautiful, just the change I needed after everything that has happened in the last two years.'
The pair now share the same management company after Elen recently signed to CAN Associates, who have guided Andre's career for years.
However, Elen took to her Twitter page to deny the rumours, tweeting: 'I am not dating Peter Andre, was told it wouldn't be long before that one cropped up!'
So, who's telling the truth?
Peter had a high profile divorce with ex-wife Katie Price, who is now married to cage fighter Alex Reid – although there are reports a break-up may be imminent.
Since his divorce Peter has mostly held back from a relationship and has only had a few brief encounters, including one with former glamour model Maddy Ford.
However, recently he has said he is ready to move on and find love again.
Elen also admitted she was ready to find a new man after splitting from Frank Lampard, who she was with for six years.
She has said: 'I want to find a man and get married. I miss having a man in every way.'
Elen then went on to describe her 'dream man', adding: 'He must be funny, tall, olive-skinned, intelligent and fit.'
