Head Over Heels: Paula Abdul looked smitten as she smooched her boyfriend John Caprio in Miami Beach yesterday.
The duo have been dating for four months now, and it is perhaps a sign of how serious their relationship is becoming that the talent show favorite recently put her California home on the the market.
She was introduced to the 40-year-old Rhode Island entrepreneur the same month she split with her partner of a year and a half, record label boss Jeff Bratton.
An insider said: 'Paula's sister, Wendy, lives near Providence, and Paula and John were introduced by mutual friends in late November and they really hit it off.'
The pair looked very lovey dovey, and the 49-year-old Opposites Attract singer is clearly relishing dating a younger man.
Opposites Attract: Pint-sized Paula obviously does not mind the fact that her new beau is much taller than she is.
Still Got The Moves: The noted dancer showed she has not lost her flexibility by kicking up her leg.
A Text From Simon?: If it was a message from her former chum she probably hit the delete button.
The former chart star was reportedly fuming after being given the axe from Simon Cowell's struggling US version of the X Factor.
A source who worked with Abdul on the show said: 'Paula went ballistic when she found out she wasn’t back,' and 'told Simon that she felt used.' The insider also said she 'screamed' at Cowell and the producers. However she regained her her composure by the time the news was made public. She said: 'I want nothing more than for The X Factor to exceed ALL of their wildest dreams. This truly has been a blessing and I am most grateful.'
It's Good To Talk: But surely they would have saves cash if they held a conversation with each other over coffee.
Paula showed off a physique that would be the envy of many half her age as they sauntered around.
