Kate Beckinsale sets tongues wagging as she holds hands with man at LA basketball game – who is her ‘gay best friend’

IT looked like Kate Beckinsale’s single days are over as she falls into the arms of her date for the night.

Only the bespectacled bloke is her “gay best friend” and assistant Stephen Simbari who fans had mistaken for her former toyboy boyfriend Matt Rife.

The pair of pals attended a Los Angeles Lakers game in America where they held hands as she sported a chequered blazer.

Having previously mistaken as her former flame, Kate, 45, clarified on her Instagram account: “And thank you @stephensimbari for making a slightly less gay face than usual so that we are now officially a tabloid couple . If I decide to defiantly flaunt our relationship again you are no longer allowed to throw bits of sandwich at me!”

It comes after she was linked to Brit comic Jack Whitehall, 30, and Ariana Grande’s ex Pete Davidson, 25.
