Lewis Hamilton reportedly dating Justin Bieber’s ex Barbara Palvin

Formula One champion Lewis Hamilton is reportedly having a romantic relationship with Hungarian fashion model, Barbara Palvin.

Barbara dated Justin Bieber in 2014 after his break from singer Selena Gomez.

The Formula One ace is believed to have set his sights on the Victoria’s Secret model after they hit it off at the Cannes Film Festival last month. It’s claimed the duo became close when they both worked as ambassadors for L’Oreal cosmetics during the ceremony.

A source told The Sun that, ‘She and Lewis were only in Cannes for a short time but got on like a house on fire. They hung out every day and partied at night. By the end of the trip they were really close. They’ve been keeping in touch, with plans to meet up again soon.’

The 31-year-old sport star is the highest paid from the racing clique, earning $46m yearly. He’s followed by German racing driver currently driving in Formula One for Scuderia Ferrari, Sebastian Vettel who gets $41m.

Since splitting from X Factor’s Nicole Scherzinger in February last year, Lewis has been linked with Kendall Jenner and Rihanna.
