Film director Reg Traviss – who the ‘Back to Black’ star Amy Winehouse has reportedly been dating since she met him at his parents’ pub in central London a few weeks ago – has been in a relationship with burlesque dancer Raven Isis Holt for two years and according to the 25-year-old performer, the pair are still very much an item.
She said: “Amy can’t steal my man. He’s told me they are just friends and I believe him. There’s no way he’d leave me for Amy.”
In a further blow to the troubled songstress, Raven claimed she was dining with Reg while Amy was obliviously partying in London’s Soho on Wednesday.
The 26-year-old singer – who split from ex-husband Blake Fielder-Civil after meeting the filmmaker – was seen stumbling out of the Jazz After Dark bar and kissing and hugging fans outside the venue.
While Raven insists Reg and Amy – who have been pictured holding hands and kissing – are just friends, the singer’s father Mitch Winehouse thinks they are romantically involved.
He recently gave his blessing on the blossoming relationship, saying: “I’m happy she’s got a new boyfriend. I’m happy that she’s moving on with her life.”
