Los Angeles: Hollywood actress Meg Ryan has sparked dating rumours after she was spotted with singer John Mellencamp in New York, just days after his split from wife.

According to friends, the 49-year-old actress has been seeing the `Jack and Diane` rocker secretly for several weeks after he ended his two decade marriage with the former model Elaine Irwin, People online reported.

Ryan, who shifted her base to New York last year has been seen with the 59-year-old singer in the Martha`s Vineyard Island off the coast of New England and in New York where they are regular customers of the Gourmet Garage grocery store.

"She usually comes in by herself or with her daughter. I thought that was her husband because they seemed for comfortable and familiar with each other, just like an old married couple," a source linked to the store said.

The `City of Angels` star has been married once to actor Dennis Quaid with whom she split in 2000 after 10 years of marriage. Ryan has been single since then but had a brief fling with actor Russell Crowe around the same time her marriage ended.

The actress has a son and a daughter with the latter being adopted from China.
