Los Angeles - Russell Crowe is reportedly dating Billy Joel's ex-wife.

The Les Miserables actor - who split from wife Danielle Spencer in October - was seen getting close with food critic Katie Lee in front of a romantic fireplace in the Drawing Room of New York's Greenwich Hotel over the weekend, and onlookers said they couldn't keep they hands off each other.

One source told the New York Post: "They seemed to be in an intense flirtatious conversation. They looked really into each other.
Katie was still at the hotel on Sunday afternoon. She was seen with Crowe at the same fireplace at about 14:00."

Not serious

Sources say the pair have been seeing each other for a few weeks, but it's not serious at the moment.

Russell, 48, and 43-year-old Danielle - who have two sons, Charles, eight, and six-year-old Tennyson, together - split in October after nine years of marriage.

Russell regularly praised Danielle, and she was credited with have a calming influence over him.

Shortly after their wedding, the Oscar-winning actor said: "I've been thinking about it for a long time so I don't have any second thoughts. The thought [of marrying her] crossed my mind the first time I met her."

Katie split from Billy in 2009.
