Katy cosy putting hunky model in frame for love

THE hunky French model believed to be the new love interest of Katy Perry has posted a cosy photo of the pair.

Speculation has been rife over blue-haired Katy's relationship with French model, Baptiste Giabiconi, since the collapse of her 14-month marriage to Russell Brand in December.

And the rumour mill will go into overdrive today after the Chanel catwalk hunk posted this picture (right).

Baptiste, who is 6ft 2in, took to his social networking site on Sunday to show off the snap of himself with the Teenage Dream performer.

Resting her head on 22-year-old Baptiste, Katy (27) looks happy and relaxed as she gazes into the camera.

Pals of Baptiste, who is one of the world's best paid models, admit he is "smitten" with the singer, spending "a lot of time" with Katy.

Under the photo he shared with fans, he wrote on his Twitter page:

"Hey my (Little Kats) you look so amazing in this (picture)."

Chart-topper Katy first sparked rumours of a growing romance when she was spotted with bachelor Baptiste during Paris Fashion Week last month.

They sat next to each other in the front row of Karl Lagerfeld's show for Chanel.

They were then seen greeting as Katy arrived at the Gare du Nord Eurostar station in Paris last week.

In January, Baptiste told Dansk magazine of his hopes to wed the Grammy winner.

"She has spirit and she doesn't come across forced. And I also think she's hot. If I could make her divorce her husband, I'd marry her."
