British actor Hugh Grant and his girlfriend Jemima Khan have laughed off rumours of a split by taking a romantic break in Venice, Italy. The NOTTING HILL star and socialite have been dating since June 2004 - shortly after Khan divorced Pakistani cricketer and politician IMRAN KHAN. In recent weeks, the couple have been kept apart while Grant filmed his latest movie MUSIC AND LYRICS BY in New York City, while Khan cared for her children SULAIMAN and KASIM in London, which sparked press reports their romance was on the rocks. However, photographs published in British newspapers The Sun and Daily Mirror today (31MAY06) shows the pair are clearly in love as they kiss on the balcony of their hotel and take a romantic gondola ride together.
