That's right, folks! Clay's got a new main squeeze! (And no it's not someone of the same sex. Darn those evil gay rumors!)
Word on a British gossip site is that he's dating the front girl of an up-and-coming pop group, Candy Apple. No word on what her name is yet, or if these rumors are true!
For now, Claymates can breathe a sigh of relief because both Clay and his mystery woman have decided to keep as the British call it "mum" about their relationship.
One source, the mystery girl's bandmate, Tara Lincoln has seen the pair in public and had this to say "They look very happy together and are very much in love. I mean despite the fact that they're only 10 years apart. Age is nothing but a number. Right?"
Clay's publicist (who will not be named for the purpose of this article) had this to say "I'm stunned! I'm embarrassed. I'm stunned and embarrassed, why would he do something like this?!
"You know, this could ruin his squeaky-clean image for as long as he's in this business!"
After saying that, I suddenly lost contact with the publicist when his cellphone became submerged in his bath water. Like any good journalist, I had to get the facts straight from the real source - Clay Aiken and his mystery girlfriend themselves.
When asked how long Mr. Aiken had known his 18-year old girlfriend this was his response "Three weeks, ma'am." When asked where his girlfriend was, Clay shook his head and shrugged.
When asked if she'll come back for an interview, Clay said "I hope so." then just when I was about to exit the hotel room.
Clay Aiken did something I was glad his girlfriend wasn't around to see. He winked at me.
