Katherine Jenkins 'dates professor'
Katherine Jenkins is spicing up her love life with an American painter and professor, according to reports.
The Daily Mirror said that the Welsh singer has been dating Andrew Levitas since the beginning of the year, when she moved to Los Angeles to work on her new album.
Katherine, 33, who split with presenter Gethin Jones at the end of 2011, has told friends he is "just lovely", the newspaper said.
Andrew, 34, is a professor at New York university, where his teaching interests include the artist's mind.
He describes himself as a "painter, sculptor, photographer and actor" on his website, according to the newspaper.
The couple have been spotted around Hollywood, where they're both currently staying, for the past three weeks.
A source close to the singer revealed: "She thinks Andrew is lovely, she hopes this one works out. They are literally joined at the hip at the moment and spending all of their time together."
Katherine mentioned Andrew after he appeared to give her an oil painting.
The star joked on Twitter: "A simple bunch of daffodils would have done! Thank you @AndrewLevitas It's beyond beautiful."
Katherine was previously linked to stockbroker Adam Bidwell, one of Prince Harry's closest friends.
