AFTER Jude Bellingham signed up to celebrity dating app Raya in the summer, it seems someone has finally caught his eye.
I can reveal the £113million Real Madrid and England midfielder has been swapping messages with stunning R&B singer Rmarni.
The handsome football ace has been quietly liking the rising music star’s sexy, scantily clad Instagram snaps for months.
An insider tells me: “Jude thinks Rmani is stunning — she is exactly his type.
“She is flattered by the interest and excited to see where it could go.
“Jude is one of the hottest football players on the planet

“He is based in Spain and she is in the UK, but he is in the market for romance.”
The news comes after Jude was previously linked to social media model Asantewa Chitty.
Dudley-born singer Rmarni describes herself online as being inspired by “turn-of-the-century R&B legends” Beyonce, Aaliyah, Brandy and Ashanti.
Her debut single So High was released in 2021 and was met with critical acclaim.
Last week superstar Jude showed his gentle side by lending his blanket to a ballboy during Real Madrid’s Copa del Rey clash with Arandina FC.
Left on the bench for the last-32 tie, he noticed the youngster was feeling the cold and wrapped him up.
The ballboy revealed after Madrid’s 3-1 victory that it was his “happiest day”.
Jude posed for pictures and selfies with other youngsters prior to the game.
BABY JOY AT MEL’S 50TH
MEL C proves friendship never ends by reuniting on stage with her Spice Girls bandmate Emma Bunton to mark her 50th birthday.
Sporty Spice flaunted her age-defying figure in a black crop top as she performed at London’s Koko club on Friday night.
Mel, who treated fans to several hits, was briefly joined by Baby Spice for the gig, which was also attended by telly stars Leigh Francis and Kate Thornton.
The singer was flooded with messages for her milestone birthday including one from fellow Spice Girl Victoria Beckham.
Posh Spice shared a throwback snap of her and Mel at a fashion shoot, with the caption: “Happy Birthday @melaniec music. Kisses”.
NICOLE KIDMAN has been feeling very generous during filming for new Netflix series The Perfect Couple.
I can reveal the actress has been holding a raffle on set – and handing out up to £5,000 most days.
An insider said: “Nicola is incredibly generous and on days where lots of people are on set she makes cast, crew and extras write down a charity of their choice.
“She then draws up to five and hands out £1,000 to each charity.
“All of the winners make a heartwarming speech about why the charity is so important to them.”
Nic’s murder mystery is due out this year.
KELLE SORRY OVER TOUR
ETERNAL singer Kelle Bryan has said she feels she let fans down after the band’s new tour was pulled.
The Nineties girl group were due to perform at South London’s Mighty Hoopla festival this year.
But Kelle and Louise Redknapp backed out after it emerged their fellow bandmates, sisters Easther and Vernie Bennett, held anti-trans views.
Speaking of the tour, Kelle said: “I was just saying how sorry I was because I really wanted to do the tour, having my kids seeing what Mummy used to do.
“The fans have been so loyal for so many years and I wanted to give back to them.”
Asked if a reunion with her childhood pal Louise is on the cards, Kelle said: “Who knows? It is not something we are both planning, but you never know.”
Kelle revealed she is focusing on her ITV drama Significant Other, where she plays Shelley, ex-wife of main character Sam.
UNLUCKY in love Georgia Harrison has filled her suitcase with crystals to help attract her perfect man.
She said: “I am really into crystals and my sister has bought me a crystal egg, which will be a point of focus while I am there.
“I also have an amethyst, a rose quartz necklace and my step-mum bought me two other crystals and broke down the meanings of them that are specifically tailored to keep me strong throughout my journey and attract love.”
RIZZLE’S REUNION KICK-OFF
IT’S been a decade since their last album but I hear Rizzle Kicks are planning a reunion.
Brighton hip-hop duo Jordan Stephens and Harley Alexander-Sule – who had huge hits with Down With The Trumpets and Mama Do The Hump – have been working on a new album with multi-instrumentalist producer Dan Holloway.
A music insider tells me: “This comeback is really exciting and the lads are pumped. They’ve already recorded some new tracks.
“Their sound and content has matured. It’s slicker and darker and the lyrics are deep and revealing.”
In 2016, the duo announced they were cancelling their tour because of Harley’s anxiety.
Jordan – dating ex Little Mix star Jade Thirlwall – has since acted on TV and raised awareness for mental health.
Maybe Jade can offer her vocals for a track . . .
HAYLEY’S BACK FOR ’MORE
THEY’VE been at the centre of industry gossip after a huge falling out with their label, but I can reveal Paramore are striking out on their own.
The US rock trio are set to headline Coachella in April, a month before joining Taylor Swift’s Eras tour.
A source close to the band said: “They’re excited to return to Coachella as an independent band away from the constraints of their old record label Atlantic.
“It’s an exciting gig for them before going on tour with pop queen Taylor.”
LIBERTY POOLE says she won’t do a Maya Jama and reunite with Jake Cornish in the Love Island villa.
She split with Jake four days before the series final in 2021 and doesn’t foresee them getting back together like the show host did with her rapper ex last year.
Liberty said: “I think Maya and Stormzy really suit but with Jake and I it’s not the case.
“I wouldn’t want us to be in there at the same time.”
Sorry, Liberty – it looks like the ITV producers had other ideas
MAYA HAVING A WINE OLD TIME
MAYA JAMA will not have to look far for a glass of vino after a busy day hosting Love Island All Stars.
The presenter is staying in the Cape Winelands region of South Africa for the duration of the ITV series, which kicks off tomorrow – and she’s been making the most of the plush hotels.
Maya has been mostly spending time at the five-star Delaire Graff Estate in Stellenbosch, where one of the cheapest lodges costs £1,500 a night.
She posted a glimpse of the sprawling 29-acre gardens on her Instagram.
Speaking about her stay in South Africa, she said: “It’s not going to be all-night parties – I’m being sensible.
“But I’m definitely not on a booze ban!”
