London (ANI): 'Unlucky-in-love' pair Guy Ritchie and Jemima Khan have struck up a cosy friendship, according to reports. Apparently, the duo has been seeing a lot more of each other in recent weeks as Jemima has proved the perfect shoulder to cry on for Guy since his split with Madonna. Also, the British director is comforting the beauty following her on-off relationship with Hugh Grant.
Now, the couple's pals believe that they would make the perfect couple after finally finding a kindred spirit in one another. “They're taking things slowly as Guy doesn't want to throw himself back into the dating world so soon after splitting with his wife," New of the World quoted a pal, as saying.
“The whole incident really shook him up more than people think and Jemima has been there to comfort him, they've become very good friends because of it. But everyone can see there's clearly a connection between them and I don't think anyone would be surprised if they take things on to the next level," the pal added.
Friends first noticed how close they had suddenly become when they flirted away at a west London Christmas party last year. Jemima and Hugh ended their up-and-down relationship in 2007. While Guy announced his separation from Madonna in October 2008 after eight years of marriage.
