Meg Ryan's ex, John Mellencamp, and supermodel Christie Brinkley were spotted on a dinner date earlier this week in New York, prompting rumors that the two are an item.

If the rumor proves to be true, it will mark the first time since divorcing husband Peter Cook that Brinkley has been part of the dating scene.

Meg Ryan and John Mellencamp spent more than three years together. Despite their split just over a year ago, the two are still very close friends.

Now that close friend seems to have ignited a spark with Christie Brinkley.

It was Monday evening when Christie Brinkley and John Mellencamp were seen leaving New York’s Bowery Hotel, after spending just over an hour inside having dinner.

Christie Brinkley looked happy. She was dressed casually–wearing jeans and sneakers, along with a bright blue scarf. Mellencamp walked out of the restaurant and onto the sidewalk just behind her.

The two left shortly thereafter in his chauffeur-driven car.

Meanwhile, Meg Ryan is making news of her own for some recent cosmetic surgery she reportedly underwent. Coming under fire for not simply allowing herself to age naturally, the 53-year-old doesn't really look like Meg Ryan any more.

John Mellencamp and Meg Ryan might still be good friends, but if he's longing for natural beauty, he's found it now in Christie Brinkley. Do you suppose part of Meg Ryan's cosmetic transformation throughout the years in any way contributed to her split from the singer?
