AnnaLynne McCord has a new man in her life. She is dating retired Lakers small forward Rick Fox. And despite their age difference–he is 45 and she is 27–the two seem very happy together.
People magazine reports that the two were spotted together in Arizona this weekend at a pre-Super Bowl function, and they didn’t hide their PDA. Fox arrived at the event ahead of AnnaLynne McCord, who joined him shortly thereafter.
“As soon as she arrived they were together for the rest of the evening,” a source told People. “They were really cute, holding hands, and even while fans asked Rick to take pics he held her hand while he took pics with them.”
Later in the evening AnnaLynne McCord was overheard referring to Fox as her “boyfriend” and the two posed together for photos, too.
Rick Fox was married to Vanessa Williams for five years. He was most recently linked to actress Eliza Dushku, but the two split up last year.
The Nip/Tuck and 90210 star dated Dominic Purcell for three years. The two broke up in December.

AnnaLynne McCord made news back in June when she went public about having been raped as a teenager. She became an advocate for survivors of sexual assault, as well as those who endured human trafficking, as a result of her own assault.
“I needed to rescue [myself]. Now that I rescued [myself], I rescue those girls and do the right things for the right reasons,” she said when she went public about being sexually assaulted.
Hopefully both AnnaLynne McCord and Rick Fox have found love in their relationship. With both having just emerged from ended relationships, however, do you think it’s way too soon to expect that?
