With his army of female friends, it's often hard to tell who Simon Cowell is rubbing belly buttons with and who is strictly a platonic pal.
But the music mogul has set tongues wagging after stepping out with 'True Blood' star Janina Gavankar, sparking rumours of a new romance.

The pair were spotted being being driven away together after they enjoyed a meal at Hollywood restaurant Cecconi's.
The night out followed some online flirting between them.
Last month Simon tweeted the actress, writing: "Hello trouble."
She replied "... who me??" with the hashtag #DefinitelyMe, and Simon answered: "Yes you."
Simon has been linked to F1 driver Jenson Button's former fiancee Louise Griffiths and former 'Baywatch' star Carmen Electra since splitting with fiancée earlier this year.
