Florence Welch ‘getting serious with photographer’

Florence Welch is said to be dating Jesse Jenkins, a British skateboarder and photographer.

The 28-year-old Florence + the Machine singer is currently preparing to put out her band’s new album How Big, How Blue, How Beautiful.

And although she’s extremely busy with work at the moment, it’s claimed the stunning redhead has still been managing to carve out time for her new beau Jesse.

“They are not seen out together that often as they prefer to stay in and chill out,” a source told UK newspaper The Sun.

“But things are getting serious between them.”

Florence is said to be on cloud nine with how things are developing between her and Jesse.

It’s believed the relationship is boosting her mood in major ways.

“Florence is happier than she’s been in a long time,” the insider said.

Florence split from event planner James Nesbitt in 2014 after dating for over two years.

Both organiser James and photographer Jesse are the ex-boyfriends of British TV presenter Fearne Cotton, who is now married to musician Jesse Wood.

Florence broke up with her longterm boyfriend literary editor Stuart Hammond in October 2011.

And in a previous interview, she confessed the split from Stuart was extremely hard to live through.

“I’ve just gone through a dramatic breakup. It’s sad, I get so lonely. I really did feel like I was breaking down several times. This job is not making me sad; the situation I’m in is making me sad. Singing is the only time I feel truly happy,” she told Q magazine.

Florence + the Machine’s third studio album How Big, How Blue, How Beautiful will be released at the close of May.
