Model-turned-actress NOEMIE LENOIR has found love with a French director, following an apparent overdose last year (10).
The 31-year-old beauty, who has enjoyed roles in films including Rush Hour 3 and After the Sunset, is said to be on the road to recovery with the help of her new boyfriend, filmmaker Jean Paul Rouve.
A source tells Britain's Daily Mirror, "Jean Paul makes her laugh and has given her a new lease of life."
Last May (10), the model was found unconscious in woodland in La Celle-Saint-Cloud, France, after allegedly ingesting a cocktail of drugs and alcohol.
Lenoir has a six-year-old son, Kelyan, with her former soccer star boyfriend Claude Makelele, and was previously romantically linked to rap mogul Russell Simmons.
The BBC drama starring Aidan Turner returns to BBC One on September 4th.
