British singer/songwriter Eliza Doolittle has confirmed romance rumours suggesting she's dating property tycoon Nick Leslau's son.

The Skinny Genes hitmaker was spotted shopping with Jake Leslau last week (ends23May14) and now she reveals the music manager is her "lover".

She tells The Sun on Sunday, "It's a summer fling that will hopefully last for a long time."

Doolittle admits she was keen to keep the identity of her new beau under wraps for as long as possible.

She previously dated Good Charlotte star Benji Madden.
