The X Factor judge has a smile on her face and a spring in her step thanks to her new man, millionaire hotelier Justin Hemmes.
Arriving in Australia last June for her hosting role on The X Factor, Natalie Imbruglia didn’t quite know what life would have in store for her. Yes, she knew she would have to front up twice a week to the studio for filming, but other than that ...
Fast forward almost five months and Nat’s trip back home has been a resounding success. Not only has she cemented a position as one of Australia’s most competent – not to mention glamorous – TV hosts, she’s also being dining on love with 38-year-old Sydney nightclub owner Justin Hemmes.
Pictured strolling hand-in-hand on a secluded beach three hours drive south of Sydney, Natalie looked radiantly happy as she enjoyed a day on the coast with the man she’s been insisting is “just a friend”.
But as the 35-year-old frolicked with Justin in the water, enjoying lingering embraces and kisses, it was clear this was much more than just two friends enjoying a weekend break.
“It was definitely a romantic weekend away,” says a source close to the couple.
“They flew down from [Sydney’s] Bankstown airport in a chopper to Justin’s Sussex Inlet property on Saturday. He took her down there for some R&R … and to meet his parents.”
