Reports claim guitarist is romantically involved with Hollywood actress

TribesDan White is dating Hollywood actress Scarlett Johansson, according to reports.

The Sunday Mirror claims that the guitarist met Johansson while she was filming her new flick Under The Skin and the pair have now been romantically involved for the last several weeks.

A source said:

They got on like a house on fire and Scarlett was into his band’s music. There was an instant connection. They’ve been seeing each other for a good few weeks. Dan’s proper happy about it – and what guy wouldn’t be? He already thinks the world of Scarlett.

They went on to add: “Dan thinks she’s an amazing girl. They both have incredibly busy lives but are going to see where things go. Dan’s band Tribes is only just taking off and Scarlett has a lot of work on. So who knows?”

Johansson split with her former husband, actor Ryan Reynolds, in 2010. Earlier this week, she described the leaked naked photographs of her which surfaced on the internet as “creepy”. A man was arrested in connection with the incident in October.

Tribes, meanwhile, will release their debut album ‘Baby’ on January 16 next year. The LP includes ‘We Were Children’ and ‘When My Day Comes’, which both featured on the band’s early EPs, as well as recent single ‘Sappho’.

Tribes were announced as part of the line-up for the NME Awards Tour 2012 last week. The band, along with Metronomy, Azealia Banks and headliners Two Door Cinema Club, will undertake the tour throughout February next year.

The tour kicks off in Glasgow at the O2 Academy on February 8 – it then takes in dates in Newcastle, Manchester, Nottingham, Leeds, Norwich, Birmingham, Cardiff, Bristol and Bournemouth, before finishing up at London’s O2 Academy Brixton on February 25.
