Popstar Kylie Minogue is dating Scottish singer and DJ Calvin Harris, it has been claimed.

The 38-year-old has been spotted spending romantic evenings with Harris, who was a virtual unknown until his Acceptable in the 80s song became a top ten hit earlier this year.

Minogue's representatives have said in the past that the singer and Harris, 23, are simply working together on the Australian's new album, but the News of the World suggests otherwise.

"They've struck up a very close friendship and are now an item," a source told the tabloid.

Two months ago Minogue split up with French actor Olivier Martinez after a four-year relationship, which followed her successful fight against breast cancer.

"Kylie's had a tough time but has finally found happiness with Calvin," the News of the World's source continued.

"Kylie is a real fighter. She's bounced back and has a smile on her face again.

"She's excited about the new album but meeting Calvin was the icing on the Cake. He always makes her laugh and they're a lovely couple."
