Geri Halliwell's Russian romance
( femalefirst.co.uk ) - Geri Halliwell is reportedly romancing a Russian heir. The 34-year-old Spice Girl is said to be "besotted" with 26-year-old Evgeny Lebedev, whose father is billionaire academic Alexander Lebedev.
The smitten pair - who met through their mutual friend, Chelsea Football Club owner Roman Abramovich - were pictured leaving a London party on Wednesday (11.07.07) night hand-in-hand.
A fellow guest at The Serpentine Gallery summer party told Britain's Daily Mirror newspaper: "They looked very much together all night and were whispering in each other's ears. Geri seemed totally besotted with him and kept touching his arm. And it looked like the feeling was very much mutual."
Geri - who has a one-year-old daughter, Bluebell Madonna - has had a turbulent love life and is yet to find her 'Mr. Right'.
She has previously dated Robbie Williams, 'Little Britain' comic David Walliams and British radio and TV presenter Chris Evans.
Her relationship with scriptwriter Sacha Gervasi, the father of her daughter Bluebell, ended in the early stages of her pregnancy and she has had no contact with him since. Last month, it was claimed Geri was keen to have another baby because she wants Bluebell to have a brother or a sister.
A source said: "Geri doesn't want Bluebell to be an only child because she's such a sociable baby and loves being around other children.
"Geri is very close to her own sister, Natalie, and she can't imagine life without a sibling."Having another child is very much at the forefront of her mind right now."
