AceShowbiz - Kesha (formerly Ke$ha) has a new boyfriend and she is not hiding it. The singer/songwriter appears to have confirmed her relationship with film producer Riccardo Maddalosso as they were spotted kissing in Los Angeles.
On Monday evening, March 13, the 36-year-old musician and the Hollywood filmmaker stepped out for a dinner date in Malibu, California. In pictures obtained by Daily Mail, the pair were not shy to show their love as they were seen kissing outside Japanese restaurant Nobu.
They looked happy as they flashed a smile while standing together in the parking lot, with Riccardo wrapping his arms around Kesha. The "We R Who We R" songstress was also seen playfully sticking her tongue out at her beau.
During the outing, Kesha flashed her taut tummy in a white crop top underneath a black jacket and white pants. Her blonde hair was styled in a messy updo as she wore sunglasses and black shoes.
As for Riccardo, who has been credited as executive producer for films like "Armageddon Time" and "Every Day in Kaimuki", he opted for a green shirt and black jacket with gray pants. He also sported a pair of sunglasses and completed his look with black shoes.
Prior to their PDA-filled outing, Kesha and Riccardo had been spotted together several times. They spent time together on Valentine's Day at celebrity hotspot Giorgio Baldi in Santa Monica. They were also spotted there in December 2022.
On Sunday night, the pair attended the Elton John Oscar party, but they showed no PDA. At the bash, the "Blah Blah Blah" singer looked stunning in a cherry red dress that flashed her tummy, while her boyfriend donned a dark jacket and green shirt with no tie.
Kesha was previously in a longtime relationship with Brad Ashenfelter. They began dating in 2014. It's not clear when they called it quits, but they were last seen together during on a romantic beach date in May 2021.
