After reports emerged claiming that Christina El Moussa was dating both Anaheim Ducks’ player Nate Thompson and a mystery man, the reality star is now shooting down all romance rumours.
“It was NOT a date,” her rep told Entertainment Tonight. “She was with a friend who she is doing a business project with.”
The denial comes as E! confirms the romance with Thompson through an anonymous source. The pair have reportedly been dating for “about a month.”
Moussa was spotted cheering on her potential new beau this week as he and his teammates triumphed over the Edmonton Oilers. The HGTV star has also attended “several other games this season, too.”
Romance rumours were first sparked when Thompson shared a photo of the pair to his Instagram account earlier this month. And prior to making a joint social media appearance, El Moussa and Thompson were spotted chatting during a Ducks in Tux charity event earlier this year.
The 33-year-old blonde is currently embroiled in a public divorce with her “Flip or Flop” co-star Tarek El Moussa. Her husband filed for divorce back in January after being split up for several months beforehand.
Christina has been consistent in denying romance reports in the last few months, insisting that “she is taking time to focus on her children and herself.” The estranged couple now share custody of their kids. “Tarek and I are in a very good place right now,” she told E! last week. “We’re doing a really good job. We share the kids 50/50 and our communication is great.”
