AceShowbiz - It seems like Mark Ronson has already moved on from his estranged wife Josephine de la Baume. Less than five months after splitting from the French actress/singer, the 42-year-old British DJ is reportedly dating New York-born singer Samantha Urbani, who is 12 years younger than him.
A source shared with The Sun newspaper that "Sam has been a fresh of breath air for Mark who had been struggling to move on since the breakdown of his marriage." The rumored new lovebirds allegedly "spent Notting Hill Carnival all over each other and didn't seem to care who saw them."
The insider went on saying that the "Uptown Funk" hitmaker and his new flame kept flaunting some heavy PDA at the fest. "Mark kept on kissing her on the cheek and showing her a lot of affection," noted the insider. "She was beside him for his birthday bash last week."
Although their romance is still in its early stages, Mark and Sam are said to be "smitten" with each other. "It's early days but they seem pretty smitten," the insider told the publication.
Mark split from Josephine earlier this year. The estranged spouses had been married since 2011, but Josephine cited irreconcilable differences as the reason for their separation. She filed for divorce in May, listing the date of separation as April 21 of this year in the legal docs. She's asking for spousal support even though they have no children together.
Mark and Josephine, who had appeared in the music video for "The Bike Song", started dating in 2009 before getting married two years later. Prior to being together with Josephine, the handsome DJ was romantically linked to Rashida Jones.
Mark and the daughter of 7-time Oscar-nominated musician/record producer Quincy Jones began dating in 2002, before getting engaged in March the next year. Unfortunately, their relationship ended approximately one year later.
