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.

    Mag: Lindsey Vonn and Tiger Woods’ ex wife are friends

    No bad blood here. Though Elin Nordegren is unlikely to befriend one of her ex-husband Tiger Woods’ conquests (even though we’re sure that Perkins waitress was/is a great human being), Us Weekly is reporting Nordegren has no issue with Olympic skier Lindsey Vonn. In fact, the two are friends. Not besties by a stretch, but after spending time doing parental things, the two have found they get along. A source tells the mag: “You'd think it would be weird, but ... they talk all the time. Elin likes that Lindsey is a strong woman.”
