Joshua Jackson steps out with model Shafia West

The star previously admitted he was having trouble getting to grips with the modern dating scene.

Actor Joshua Jackson has sparked rumours of a new romance with model Shafia West after they were photographed arm-in-arm together in California.

The former Dawson's Creek star split from German beauty Diane Kruger last summer (16) after 10 years together, but it appears he has a new lady in his life as he stepped out with Shafia in Studio City over the weekend (19-20Aug17).

Joshua was dressed casually in a black hoodie and shorts as he stopped by a farmers' market with Shafia, who wore a striped sweatshirt, denim shorts, and a baseball cap as she held on to his arm.

Representatives for the actor have yet to comment on his relationship with the brunette, but she isn't the first woman he has been linked to since calling it quits with Kruger.

Earlier this year (Jan17), Joshua was allegedly spotted kissing a woman while partying at the Sundance Film Festival in Utah, before cosying up to another female during a New York City dinner date in March (17), according to Us Weekly.

The 39-year-old previously confessed he was still getting to grips with dating in the digital world.

During an appearance on America's The Ellen DeGeneres Show in December (16), he remarked, "Things have changed a little bit since last time I was single. Maybe it (online dating) was there, but I don't remember it. I mean, everything's on your phone now, right? There's no more talking to people anymore. You talk to somebody and they're like, 'Ugh! No, no, no, no, no! We don't do that anymore.' So, yeah, it's been quite a big change."

While Joshua appears to be enjoying playing the field, his ex has firmly moved on. Kruger has been dating The Walking Dead star Norman Reedus, who she was first pictured with in February (17).
