It’s only natural that a bye-week trip to Jacksonville would spark a new round of rumors that former University of Florida superstar Tim Tebow is about to be traded by the New York Jets. But even juicier: The Jacksonville junket is fueling a round of speculation that the family-values quarterback’s love life is (finally) heating up.
Tebow, 25, jetted to North Florida after Sunday afternoon’s thumping of Gang Green by the Miami Dolphins, a 30-9 loss he mostly watched from the sideline. Tebow materialized Tuesday night at Latitude 30, a massive Jacksonville entertainment center for bowling and dancing.
“A few people took pictures with him, but he was left pretty much alone,’’ said an employee of the center.
While the NFL trading deadline is Thursday, sources with both teams are telling reporters that there’s no talk about putting Tebow in black and teal.
So, why is he in Jacksonville?
Tebow’s folks, Bob and Pam Tebow, live on the outskirts of the city, according to Duval County records. They own a four-bedroom house valued by taxation authorities at an un-NFL-like $211,000.
Could it be that Tebow was there to introduce a galpal?
According to TMZ, Tebow is seeing little-known actress Camilla Belle, 26, who has had small roles in movies like 10,000 BC. The two held hands at Latitude 30.
The dark-haired Belle is used to dating big-deal men who claim they’ll stay pure until a wedding.
She was once tied to Jonas Brothers singer Joe Jonas.
Hip-hop star Kanye West is a true gentleman!
Kim Kardashian’s boyfriend made up with a Miami-based paparazzo whose camera West tried to grab in anger a couple weeks ago. West spotted shutterbug Logan Fazio after he flew into MIA on Wednesday — and went up to her to give her a big hug!
When reached on her cellphone, Fazio wouldn’t say if all’s forgotten, but the photos show it probably is.
West got heated up Oct. 15 escorting Kardashian into Prime 112 in Miami Beach when Fazio asked her if they would congratulate Dolphins star Reggie Bush for his becoming a new dad. Bush is Kardashian’s ex-boyfriend.
Construction continues at a good clip on the 21,309-square-foot behemoth that golfer Tiger Woods’ ex-wife is building with his money. The three-story beachfront mansion in a Palm Beach County neighborhood that boasts two billionaires should be ready for mom-of-two Elin Nordegren in late 2014.
Nordegren, 32, is believed to have made $100 million in her split from the golfer — whose life crumbled when allegations he cheated on the ex-nanny with porn stars, hookers, waitresses, and neighbors surfaced.
Nordegren bought the property for $12.2 million about a year ago, leveled the home in the dunes, and started building new, nine-bedroom digs. Permit applications show she is spending another $3,447,612 on a 600-square-foot theater, 1,182-square-foot kitchen, and 460-square-foot “ocean-view loft.”
