Lana Del Rey is dating an Italian photographer.

The 'Young and Beautiful' hitmaker - who recently announced she had split from boyfriend Barrie-James O'Neill - has been spotted with Vogue photographer Francesco Carrozzini on dates in both Los Angeles and New York this month, and insiders claim the new romance is already getting serious.

A source told the New York Daily News newspaper: ''She came off her tour to see him in New York. Even his ex, Katherine Keating, knows they're a couple.''

News of the new romance may comes as a surprise to rocker Barrie-James, as he has insisted he and Lana are still together.

He said: ''It's not over. It's not over. Don't believe what you read, it's not over. It's just stories, bedtime stories.''

The Nightmare Boy star also revealed that he and Lana, 28, are also still working on new music together and praised her new album, 'Ultraviolence.'

He said: ''We have done for a long time... 'Ultraviolence' is ultra good.''

Lana claimed in an interview last week that she and Barrie-James, whom she first began dating in 2011, had split because she wanted to feel ''free,'' but hinted they might get back together again.

She said: ''We are currently not together. He is a wonderful person. But there are some things with which he has to deal. I will not explain it in detail. This was hard on our relationship, I no longer felt free. We'll see how it goes.''
