The ex-loves of tennis ace Boris Becker and pop superstar Anastacia have fallen in love.

Stunning American model PATRICE FARAMEH is currently romancing German sports reporter NORBERT DOBELEIT after bumping into him in a restaurant during the Cannes Film Festival.

Smitten Norbert admits, "I'm so in love. Patrice is the woman of my dreams. Especially I like her American accent."

And he insists that her previous relationship with flame haired Becker is no hindrance to their love.

He says, "I don't have a problem with that. What can I do - she is the ex of Boris. But she left the relationship strengthened and in

style. I know her even longer than I know Boris, because she used to be my neighbour in Munich."
