Natalie Portman dating Devendra Banhart – Tabloid Hell

The couple have been smooching in public in New York

Hollywood actress Natalie Portman is dating folk artist Devendra Banhart, according to various reports.

Pictures of the couple kissing and strolling arm-in-arm in New York‘s West Village have appeared on The People magazine website.

The magazine describes Banhart as Portman‘s ‘new beaux’.

The Aceshobiz blog reports that the couple have been spotted out and about together on more than one occasion.

Portman is set to appear in the music video for Banhart‘s forthcoming single, ‘Carmensita’, which was recently shot in Los Angeles.

This isn’t Banhart‘s first dabble into the world of Hollywood. The musician sent a mix CD to Lindsey Lohan in October last year to help her cope with the rigours of rehab.
