Kate Beckinsale and her boy-toy, Matt Rife, are hanging out yet again according to a source as revealed by Us Weekly. Despite the fact that there is a 22-year age gap between the two lovers, it hasn’t stopped them from casually dating.
However, an insider who spoke to the publication claimed that “her family comes first.” In fact, her children come long before Matt; Matt is just a fling.
The insider who spoke to Us Weekly said, “their relationship is reasonably chill. I don’t think either Matt or Kate think of it as something that is possible in the long-term. I mean, Kate is 44-years-old, and Matt is 22-years-old.”
However, it appears as though their relationship might be a little more than “casual,” as another source claimed that the pair were kissing during a movie theater date in LA on the 17th of November.
The pair were spotted kissing in public by the concession stand as well as by the table in the lobby. Their reunion this past weekend comes after an insider close to the couple said their relationship “fizzled out.”
The pair started hanging out in June of this year, just a year after Beckinsale broke up with her husband, Len Wiseman, whom she was married to from 2004 until 2016.
They have a daughter together who is now 18-years-old. Just four years younger than Matt. Furthermore, Kate dated Michael Sheen who has recently dedicated his life to becoming a full-time activist.
As for how Wiseman feels about the relationship, a friend of Len said in the publication that “Len doesn’t care about Kate’s relationship with a 22-year-old. They both have gone their separate ways, and there is nothing he wants to say about it.”
