Author Salman Rushdie has proposed to his ex-girlfriend Michelle Barish just months after they split up.
The novelist asked Barish to marry him two days after she broke up with billionaire Steve Tisch on 29 November (11), according to the New York Post.
A source tells the publication's gossip column Page Six, "Salman is besotted. He asked her within 48 hours of her break-up to marry him. He even has a ring."
However, Rushdie will have to wait before Barish can walk down the aisle - she is not yet officially divorced from her entrepreneur husband Chris Barish.
Rushdie and Barish split in March (11).
