But a source previously old the National Enquirer magazine that the duo have been together for years. "She decided to pretend she's looking for a boyfriend, but she's been with Jeffre for years.

Amanda Bynes has been advised against attending fashion school.
The troubled actress was only discharged from treatment for schizophrenia and bipolar disorder last week, but is said to have signed for classes at the Fashion Institute of Design and Merchandising (FIDM) in California, which psychiatrists have advised against.
"Amanda was told by her doctors that going to fashion school, so soon after being released... [is] an absolutely terrible idea for her to do at this time - it's almost setting her up for failure. There will be pressure on Amanda as far as school work, deadlines, and it's unlikely she will be able to succeed. The fashion school she is enrolled in is in Orange County, almost two hours from her parents' house, and she still doesn't have a valid driver's license," a source said.
Amanda is back living with her parents, Rick and Lynn - who has been granted conservatorship of her daughter - but the source thinks she should take returning to her studies more slowly.
George Clooney finds gay rumors about himself amusing.
The Monuments Men actor - who split from Stacy Keibler in July - has learned to laugh off rumors propagated by the internet about his sexuality because he doesn't want to offend the gay community by making a public denial.
Recalling the most exaggerated rumor he's ever read, he told the new UK issue of Esquire magazine, "[A headline read] 'George Clooney's gay-gay-gay.' And I said, 'I'm gay-gay. The third one's pushing it.' Well now, [according to the internet] I'm gay. You're not going [to deny it] because that's flat out insulting to the gay community."
The 52-year-old star also joked about one memorable TV appearance when he was asked whether he had ever had plastic surgery and he replied he had once ironed his testicles. "So now, long after I'm dead it'll be, 'George Clooney had his balls ironed.'" he moaned.
Jennifer Hudson keeps pushing her wedding date back.
The Black Nativity star - who has four-year-old son David with fiance David Otunga - has a date in mind for the big day and despite it continually "rolling around" each year she's not planning on "rushing into anything."
"Yes, there was a date set, and that date has come around again every year. In fact, the date may keep rolling around... When I'm ready to be married, I will be married. It's that simple. Everyone should just chill. Our relationship is very strong. We're both huge family people, and I'm only going to get married once. So I'm not rushing into anything," she told Essence.
Jennifer had to leave her family behind in 2011 when she travelled to South Africa to film Winnie Mandela - a biopic about the late Nelson Mandela's wife - and although she found the separation difficult she was fully committed to telling the story of the controversial political figure. "I was like, 'Oh, my God, you want me to leave my baby and my man?' But so much was done to suppress Winnie's voice, to keep her quiet. Winnie's story needed to be told," she explained.

According to gossip website TMZ, Jennifer and Marc's petitions are identical on custody issues and the couple are asking for joint legal and physical custody of their five-year-old twins, Max and Emme. Marc filed for divorce from the 44-year-old singer in April last year after they officially separated in 2011.
Jennifer has since been in a long term relationship with choreographer Casper Smart, while Marc has been dating Topshop heiress Chloe Green since February this year.
Talk about keeping news under wraps!
The Americans star Keri Russell has announced that she has been separated from her husband Shane Deary since the beginning of this past summer. "They have been separated since early summer. The separation is amicable and their focus is on their children," the 37-year-old's rep confirmed.
Although the mother of two was recently snapped up in Manhattan riding a bicycle with her son River, she and her contractor husband haven't been photographed together for some time now.
The pair - who have two children, River, 6, and Willa, 23 months - were married on Valentine's Day in 2007. "News flash: It doesn't really change anything. Everything's the same. But I'm so happy. I'm with someone I really enjoy and respect and love hanging out with," Keri said shortly after her marriage.
There's no word yet as to whether or not Russell or Deary have gone forward with divorce proceedings.
The force behind the South African anti-apartheid revolution and the country's first black president, Nelson Mandela, has passed away at 95 years of age today.
After having spent three months in the hospital for a lung infection, Mandela was being treated at home for his illness.
Jacob Zuma, the current president of South Africa, released a statement confirming the news: "Our nation has lost its greatest son... What made Nelson Mandela great was precisely what made him human. We saw in him what we seek in ourselves... Fellow South Africans, Nelson Mandela brought us together and it is together that we will bid him farewell."
Mandela, who was imprisoned for 27 years, helped lead South Africa away from white-minority rule in the 1990's with peaceful resistance. For this, Mandela won the Nobel Peace Prize in 1993 and has since become an icon in the fight for racial equality.

Simon Cowell has told Russell Brand to give up his multi-million pound salary if he's serious about his new political beliefs.
The music mogul has criticized the comic star for accepting large salaries for his Hollywood films, while also campaigning against the political system in the UK.

But Simon thinks Russell is a hypocrite who doesn't do what he says and has actually greatly benefited from capitalism. "A revolution? He's getting $10 million a movie. I mean come on! Well give your money back then, Russell. I always say that about people. Start off as you mean to go on. Donate all the money back to the revolution and then I'll believe it. I'm living in a $10 million mansion and I want a revolution? Give me a break," said the X Factor boss.
