X Factor judge Paulina Rubio had a late dinner Tuesday night at Juvia. Rubio and a male companion ate their way through the restaurant’s signature dishes until 1 a.m. Rubio — who was divorced last year — was, says a spy, “Definitely on a date. They were sitting next to each other like a couple. It was late and there weren’t many people around.” It is unclear if the man was Jerry Bazúa, her rumored boyfriend, or someone new. Spies say Rubio was drinking sake, so it’s unlikely, as rumor has it, that she’s preggo.
