London (ANI): Singer Lily Allen seems to have a thing for painters, for the singer, after breaking up with multi-millionaire art dealer previously, is now dating a painter in north London, according to reports. The 24-year-old was said to have found love in decorator Sam Cooper with no showbiz connections, an apparent preference for the star.
"Lil is tired of only ever being involved with well-known blokes," The Sun quoted a source as saying.
"She wanted to go out with someone her own age who isn't involved in music or the media. Sam is really down to earth. He grafts hard for a living as a painter and decorator and leads a totally normal life. Lily is completely smitten with him. They have known each other for a while but have only just started dating properly," the source added.
