Shakira and Miami Heat star Jimmy Butler enjoyed a low-key dinner in London on Wednesday at Novikov Restaurant & Bar. They arrived separately around 10 p.m. and went their separate ways at 1:30 a.m. — with Butler's security escorting the Latin superstar to her car. Sources who saw the pair inside the eatery say they enjoyed sushi and cocktails and were “looking cozy.”
Rumors of a romance between the two have been swirling since earlier this year. After Shakira, 46, recently moved to Miami, she and Butler, 33, seemingly started flirting on Instagram, and the Colombian singer has also attended a number of his basketball games. In the past, Butler has been romantically linked to Shay Mitchell and Selena Gomez. He also shares a 3-year-old daughter, Rylee, with his ex, Kaitlin Nowak. Shakira separated from her partner of more than a decade, Gerard Piqué, one year ago over cheating allegations.
