Is David Foster dating Katharine McPhee? That’s the rumour that erupted after the legendary Canadian music producer was seen having dinner with the former “American Idol” contestant at a Malibu restaurant on Friday evening.
As E! News reports, an “insider” on the scene claims the two enjoyed an “intimate” dinner together.
“David and Katharine were very intimate during their dinner,” says the source. “David was seen grabbing Katharine’s face and kissing her cheek several times. Katharine was doing the same to David’s face and they were acting as if they were a couple.”
In addition, the source claims the pair shared two bottles of red wine and several sushi dishes before leaving together in an Uber less than two hours after they arrived.
“By the end of the date, Katharine sat on David’s side of the table and cuddled him with a blanket,” added the source.
Does this mean the “Scorpion” star is in the running to be Foster’s fifth wife? No according to McPhee’s rep, who categorically denies that the two are a couple.
“Katharine and David have known each other for over 11 years,” McPhee’s rep, Leslie Sloane, tells ET. “They are nothing more than friends.”
In fact, McPhee and Foster have worked together numerous times over the years; for proof, check out this photo from 2006, in which Foster accompanies McPhee on piano while they perform at a private party in Bel Air in honour of Italian singer Andrea Bocelli:
