—Moving on! Too Hot to Handle star Francesca Farago didn’t waste any time getting back on the dating scene after her split from boyfriend Harry Jowsey in June. In the two months since their breakup, the Netflix star has been spotted out and about with several potential love interests, and she recently sparked dating rumors with Love Is Blind star Damian Powers.
The rumored couple were spotted looking pretty cozy outside of E.P. & L.P. restaurant in Los Angeles on August 25. In photographs obtained by Life & Style, the reality TV dating show personalities were spotted walking arm in arm during a night out with a group of friends. Francesca flaunted her toned figure in a lacy bralette with ripped jeans and sneakers, while Damian wore a black button-down shirt and khaki pants.
Fans were definitely shocked by their outing, especially because Damian is in a relationship with his Love Is Blind costar Giannina Gibelli.
But just days after his outing with Francesca sparked rumors, Damian set the record straight. “Over the past week, I have been in L.A. with my attorney, Alex Ion, pursuing new projects and business ventures. Francesca and I both share the same attorney,” he said in a statement to E! News.
“Alex arranged for both Francesca and I to meet with him for dinner at the Eveleigh in West Hollywood along with some of our other friends, including Mitchell Crawford and Raiane Macedo,” Damian continued. “We all planned to leave the Eveleigh together in the same car. Francesca, Alex, Mitchell and Raiane all exited through a side entrance, while I exited through the main entrance of the Eveleigh.”
Damian explained that once outside the restaurant, they were greeted by a group of paparazzi. “Francesca grabbed onto me in an attempt to shield herself from the paparazzi as our entire group entered the car,” he added. “Francesca and I are not dating or romantically involved but remain friends.”
As for Francesca, it seems she has already moved past the rumors. She started dating Bachelorette alum Jef Holm in September 2020. The pair were spotted on a steamy vacation to Las Vegas on September 2 and were seen packing on the PDA at the airport upon their return to Los Angeles days later.
