(LOS ANGELES) — Us Weekly has published photographs of Ashton Kutcher with someone who could be his new girlfriend. The Two and a Half Men star, who split from wife Demi Moore in November, was spotted sightseeing in Italy with screenwriter Lorene Scafaria.
A witness, Alex Thorpe, is quoted as saying the pair enjoyed a romantic lunch in Pisa on Christmas Eve, where they “held hands” while sharing spaghetti, which he paid for.
Scafaria was linked to The O.C. star Adam Brody until recently, but Us Weekly’s sources say that she and Kutcher have been romantically involved since February, long before his official split from Moore.
Representatives for both Kutcher and Scafaria deny the story and tell Us Weekly, “They’re just friends.”
