<p><span></span><strong>Paula Abdul</strong> may be busy filming <em>The X Factor</em>, but her love life is just as active! <em>Life & Style</em> can reveal that the former <em>American Idol</em> judge, 49, is dating Cascine record-label owner <strong>Jeff Bratton</strong>.</p>
Jeff and Paula were seen together on July 5 at the airport in LA -- and had his arm around her. The two were first spotted together on June 10, dining at NYC's Indochine restaurant. "They sat in a booth with a guy friend," an eyewitness tells Life & Style. "It was a mellow low-key dinner, and they were attentive to each other."
And even Paula has admitted to being close with Jeff. She worked with him and Shine 2009, a band on his label, in the spring. "I'm close with Jeff Bratton from Cascine and love what they're doing with the label," she's said.
