Contrary to recent rumours in the media, the couple have not split up, with Donna paying tribute to her "amazing" boyfriend.
British model Donna Air and her boyfriend James Middleton have denied that they’ve broken up, following reports in the last few days that they had gone their separate ways.
In a new interview with the Mail on Sunday’s You magazine, Newcastle-born Air, who shares her home with the brother of Pippa and Duchess of Cambridge Kate, describes Middleton as a “pretty awesome boyfriend”. The couple were surprised to read tabloid reports that their romance was on the rocks earlier this week, and both moved to correct that impression.
“Mark Twain once complained that reports of his death were exaggerated,” they said in a joint statement to The Mirror. “A few days ago we were equally amazed to read the obituaries of our relationship splashed across the national press.” “Happily, we can report that our relationship is not over.

I’m not at home knitting. I always have somebody around to make me smile.”
Middleton of course was seeing Pippa Middleton for a while; he’s a businessman who lives in Chelsea and owns a baking company Nice Group. The Express writes that the pair met two months ago in a London nightclub, and have finally confirmed to their friends that they’re a couple. A source for the pair told the paper: "It's still early days but James thinks she's great. They've been out together to a few places but they always choose discreet restaurants where they are less likely to get spotted." Any relationship will also have to make room for Donna’s daughter, 9 year-old Freya.
