Alexandra Burke 'Dating Jermain Defoe'
Singer and soccer star 'have become more than just good friends'...
Alexandra Burke is reported to have hooked up with her footballer pal Jermain Defoe.
The pair, who have been friends for several years, are claimed by The Sun to have recently started dating.
The X Factor winner Alex and Spurs striker Jermain stepped out in public together for the first time this week at a London charity event.
The paper quoted a source as saying: "She's a big personality and more than a match for him. A few of the lads have been winding him up at training about it.
"They had been in touch for a while, and one thing just led to another. Alexandra had been playing hard to get and a lot of flirting was going on. She finally gave in the other week and they took things further.
"They are both really happy and looking forward to meeting up more often when she comes off her UK tour."
Jermain's former GF's include Imogen Thomas, Chantelle Houghton and Danielle Lloyd.
