A representative for British rapper Dizzee Rascal has been forced to deny rumors he is dating Australian singer Natalie Imbruglia, after the pair was spotted enjoying a shopping trip in London on Thursday, December 23. The "Bonkers" hitmaker sparked speculation he's romancing the Torn singer when they were snapped arm-in-arm while picking out gifts in the city's posh Mayfair area.
The pair reportedly became close after meeting on the private island resort owned by billionaire Richard Branson last year. A source tells Britain's The Sun, "Natalie and Dizzee hit it off and kept in contact. They were keen to see each other."
But a publicist for the rapper insists the pair is just pals, explaining, "They're good friends. He was just escorting her on a shopping trip."
