Only a few weeks passed since the “Les Miserables” actor and his former wife split. Enough time, it seems, for more and more rumors regarding possible new love affairs to take life. According to recent reports by Hollywood Life, Russell Crowe is dating Katie Lee.

 

Is Russell Crowe dating Katie Lee?

 

With only a brief time to mourn over the death of his marriage, Crowe was reportedly spotted getting cozy in front of a fireplace with none other than Billy Joel’s ex-wife, Katie Lee.

The reports place the 48-year-old actor in the company of the chef and food critic on several occasions. The New York Post claimed that the two were seen cuddling by a fireplace on two separate occasions at the Greenwich Hotel on December 9th. A source for the newspaper said the couple “looked really into each other.”

Russell is at the moment on location in NYC filming for “A Winter’s Tale” alongside fellow actor Colin Farrell. He tweeted recently that he has been so busy he wasn’t able to properly spend time with his sons, Charles and Tennyson. “I need to go home & be with my children. Cannot believe how f**ked up my schedule has become this year,” his post read.

The actor and his ex-wife, Danielle Spencer, were married for nine years, whereas Katie and Billy tied the knot in 2004 and their marriage lasted for five years. Talking about Lee’s split from Joel, a source said that age was the main reason factoring in the break up. “They grew apart. She is very career-oriented. She loves going out. She loves the city. When Billy isn’t touring, he’d rather be on Long Island with his motorcycles and boats,” was added.
