LOS ANGELES, Calif. — Cameron Diaz and Britney Spears, both former first ladies of pop singer Justin Timberlake, have reportedly found themselves new men in recent weeks.
Despite allegations by Criss Angel's estranged wife that Diaz was the magician's “lover,” Diaz reportedly is dating David de Rothschild, according to US Weekly.
The two reportedly canoodled at Live Earth, the magazine reports and hit New York’s Stanton Social on Monday night for a flirty dinner. An inside source at the restaurant confirmed the dinner took place to Access Hollywood saying: “They dined on Monday night and looked very cozy, but left separately."
A rep for Diaz however, denied the reported romance and dinner.
“No, they aren't (dating),” Diaz's rep Brad Cafarelli told Access Hollywood. “She met him briefly for the first time at Live Earth and the report about them having dinner wasn't true.”
If there is no romance at present, De Rothschild, an easy-on-the-eyes Englishman, certainly wouldn’t be a bad future match for Cameron. He’d extend Diaz’s trend of dating younger men — he’s 28 to her 34 years — and he’s certainly not someone likely to woo the actress for her fame or wealth. The 6-foot-4 Brit is an heir to a major banking fortune and well known in his native country.
He also has a major passion for the environment. De Rothschild runs Sculpt the Future, a non-profit foundation aimed at encouraging people to find new ways to change and improve their communities and environment.
As for Spears, her post-Timberlake days have been tough. She divorced the father of her two children — Kevin Federline. Her first boyfriend following that relationship — model Isaac Cohen, allegedly sold her out to the tabloids and a host of mini-romances — including a rumored one with musician Howie Day reportedly failed. Britney may have found her new rock, however, in an old associate. The singer has been spotted on romantic nights out with bodyguard Damon, according to Us Weekly.
The two have been captured in more than employer-employeemoves of late. Damon carried a crying Sean Preston to church with Spears. This past weekend, the two also made headlines when Britney kissed him at the Chateau Marmont after the two shared a fun night out.
A rep for Spears could not be reached at press time but a source “familiar with Shippen’s employment” told People magazine the romantic relationship isn’t happening.
“He’s her bodyguard and manny,” the source said. “They’re not dating.”
In fact, People claims Shippen is a man on a mission to work. He previously pulled some heroics when he saved Britney from dropping baby Sean Preston in New York City last year.
"He had a little brush with fame a year ago. He was the moustached security guard who kept Britney from tripping when she was holding her baby in her arms," People's Galina Espinoza told Access. "He's back. She has rehired him as her bodyguard and her manny and that's why he's been out and about with her lately."
As for Timberlake, he appears to be going strong with his new lady, actress Jessica Biel. The “I Now Pronounced You Larry and Chuch” star reportedly joined Timberlake several times on his summer European tour, where snappers caught them in Manchester, England, in a tender kissing session.
