London: Glamour model Katie Price insists she is "not in love" with new boyfriend Leandro Penna but is happy in the relationship with him.

"I`m not in love with the guy, it`s only early days. I`m independent, I don`t rely on anyone. It`s hard for a man, they need to gain my respect. I like to test and see how far I can go. Leo bosses me about all the time," contactmusic.com quoted her as saying.

She has been dating the Argentinean hunk since February after meeting him at Sir Elton John`s Oscars party in Los Angeles.

The 32-year-old, who was previously married to Peter Andre and is in the process of divorcing second husband Alex Reid says she thinks Penna is a real man.

"I`ve realised what a man`s man he is. A man`s man is somebody who can do Do it yourself (DIY), fix your car, cook, change a light bulb. Leo is a man`s man. Hard to believe he`s only 26," she added.
