Christina Milian's new romance with Lil Wayne is reportedly a publicity stunt.

The 'Dip It Low' hitmaker, who recently ended her engagement with Jas Prince, was spotted holding hands with the rapper at the ESPY Awards in Los Angles last night (17.07.14), sparking rumours they're dating.

A source told gossip website TMZ.com that they are definitely not in a relationship and they are merely attempting to generate publicity, as Christina recently signed a deal with his record label, Young Money Entertainment.

But another source told UsMagazine.com: ''It is totally true. They are hooking up.''

The duo have been friends for a number of years, as Christina has four-year-old daughter Violet with ex-husband The Dream, while Lil Wayne's ex-girlfriend Nivea also has three children with The Dream.

The 32-year-old singer moved out of the house she shared with Jas, the CEO of Rap-A-Lot-Records, last month and hinted she was ready to move on.

She wrote on Instagram: ''There comes a time in life, when you walk away from all the drama and people who create it. Surround yourself with people who make you laugh, forget the bad, and focus on the good. Love the people who treat you right. Pray for the ones who don't. Life is too short to be anything but happy. Falling down is part of life, getting back up is living.''
