Actor Chace Crawford has sparked rumours of a new romance with Canadian model Rachelle Goulding after they were photographed getting cosy courtside at a basketball game in New York last week (ends29Mar13).

The former Gossip Girl hunk turned heads at Madison Square Garden on Friday (29Mar13) as he and Goulding watched the New York Knicks take on the Charlotte Bobcats, and they were snapped laughing and joking together as the brunette beauty held on to her man's arm.

A source tells, "They met in London last summer (12)."

Crawford has previously been linked to Twilight star Ashley Greene and country singer Carrie Underwood.
