Theballerlife.com has learned that retired NBA star turned analyst RicK Fox and Nip/Tuck and 90210 star actress AnnaLynne McCord were spotted out together at a pre-Super Bowl event in Scottsdale, Arizona, on Thursday night.
“They were really cute, holding hands, and even while fans asked Rick to take pics he held her hand while he took pics with them,” says an onlooker.
And it sounds serious. Later in the evening McCord was overheard referring to Fox as her “boyfriend” and the two posed together as well.
It’s a fresh start for both. Fox, 45, was married to actress Vanessa Williams from 1999 to 2004 and dated actress Eliza Dushku until last year.
McCord, 27, an anti-human trafficking activist who recently went public about the s*xual abuse she faced as a teen, reportedly split from boyfriend Dominic Purcell last December, after three years of dating.
