Just a few weeks after splitting from his wife, a new report claims that Russell was spotted cozy with Katie in front of a fire place!
The report claims Russell is casually seeing the chef and food critic. The New York Post’s Page Six claims they were cuddling in front of a fireplace at the Greenwich Hotel on Dec. 9, and again later that day.
“They looked really into each other,” a source said.
It was only recently that Russell and his wife Danielle Spencer split up. The actor even recently tweeted that he has been so busy with his filming schedule that he’s barely seen his son Charles Tennyson.
“Starting on another film set tomorrow,” he wrote. “I need to go home & be with my children. Cannot believe how f**ked up my schedule has become this year.”
Russell is currently in NYC shooting A Winter’s Tale with Colin Farrell.
Russell and Danielle were married for nine years, while Katie wed Billy in 2004 and they split in 2009.
When they first split, a source said, “It was really the age difference that caught up with them. 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.”
Despite reports that Katie cheated on Billy with a fashion designer, her rep said that was false.
Joel’s spokeswoman Claire Mercuri added, ”Their decision to separate was absolutely unrelated to Yigal.”
Katie recently wrote the book Ground Swell about a girl who has a bad break up and finds love again on the Hamptons with a surf instructor.
