Washington: Jessie J is said to have been secretly dating Tinie Tempah and has told her friends that she is in love with the ‘Written in the Stars’ hitmaker. They had performed together at the Royal Albert Hall for the Teenage Cancer Trust last year.
“Jessie’s smitten. She’s saying, ‘I can’t believe it’s happened to me but I’ve really fallen for him’ and it’s like they were meant to be together. She’s totally changed. It’s as if she has finally found someone she can relate to and trust,” a website has quoted a source as telling a magazine.
The two have reportedly enjoyed a number of low-key dates as they want their romance to remain under wraps for now.
‘‘They’d go out for walks in the evenings, both pulling up their hoodies so nobody saw them and then they’d just hang out in the park or local cafes. They’ve just been doing normal things,” the source added.
The pair first became close when Jessie asked Tempah for advice during filming for the UK version of ‘The Voice’ - which sees her on the panel alongside Sir Tom Jones, will.i.am and Danny O’Donoghue.
“Tinie talked her through a few pointers to get her on-screen performance up to scratch. Then he invited her over to his place to hang out and that’s when the sparks between them started to fly,” the source said.
