The 24-year-old beauty and the ‘Written in the Stars’ hitmaker have reportedly been secretly dating and Jessie has told friends she is in love, a source told LOOK magazine: “Jessie’s smitten. She’s saying, ‘I can’t believe it’s happened to me but I’ve really fallen for him’ and it’s like they were meant to be together. She’s totally changed. It’s as if she has finally found someone she can relate to and trust.”
Jessie and Tinie, 23 are said to have enjoyed a number of low-key dates because they want their romance to remain under wraps for now, the source added: “They’d go out for walks in the evenings, both pulling up their hoodies so nobody saw them and then they’d just hang out in the park or local cafes. They’ve just been doing normal things.”
The pair – who performed together at the Royal Albert Hall last year in aid of the Teenage Cancer Trust – first became close when Jessie asked Tinie for advice during filming for the UK version of ‘The Voice’ – which sees her on the panel alongside Sir Tom Jones, will.i.am and Danny O’Donoghue.
The insider explained: “Tinie talked her through a few pointers to get her on-screen performance up to scratch, then he invited her over to his place to hang out and that’s when the sparks between them started to fly.”
