russell crowe dating Russell Crowe dating Dita Von Teese? He says they're just 'friends'

Just who is Russell Crowe dating? Despite reports to the contrary, the “Les Miserables” star says it’s not Dita Von Teese.

“@DitaVonTeese is brave, smart, sweet and elegant. She is a friend of mine. Who wouldn’t want friends like that? Friends, not lovers,” he tweeted.

That’s his explanation for why The New York Post claims the couple spent a “romantic couple’s massage” together in December at the Four Seasons Hotel in NYC. The outlet also referenced the fact Crowe had been reposting some of von Teese’s tweets, including, “Dressage. Was measured for bespoke blk patent boots w/my name stamped on the heel . . . But under whose bed did I leave my Hermes riding crop?” and “Giving airport security a lesson in garter belts this morning.”

Crowe recently separated from his wife since 2003, Danielle Spencer. Von Teese had formerly been married to Marilyn Manson.
