Lana Del Rey 'Has Secret Scottish Boyfriend'

Chart-topping singer reported to be in covert relationship with indie rocker...

Admirers of sultry singer Lana Del Rey may be disappointed to hear that the 25-year-old is claimed to have been secretly hooked up with a Scottish indie rocker.

Lana, who is currently at No 1 in the Official UK Albums Chart with her debut LP Born To Die, is reported to have been seeing Barrie-James O'Neill of Kassidy for the last six months.

A source told The Mirror: "They make a very unlikely couple but they seem to work, and bounce really well off one another.

"Lana was due to appear on stage with the boys and sing Video Games in December when they performed at Glasgow Barrowlands.

"Unfortunately she was a no-show. She had a hectic promotional schedule, plus her management feared it would be a dead giveaway that she was seeing Barrie-James. The pair have known each other for ages, and have actually been dating on and off for around six months.

"They seem pretty smitten but because Lana's career has taken off so dramatically they're finding it increasingly hard to spend time together. As a result they spend a lot of time communicating over Twitter, Facebook and Skype."

Lana has commented on Glasgow being "different" and "very welcoming" in an interview - while Barrie-James and his bandmates have paid tribute to LDR by including her Video Games in their live sets.
