According to Us Weekly, "the pair met at a party on February 3rd after Jennifer Lopez’s pre-Super Bowl concert at the Minneapolis Armory."
“They drank and partied together until very late,” said Us' source. “After, Josh reached out to a mutual friend and asked for Eiza’s number.” They've been dating ever since (so, three weeks).The source further speculated, “They definitely have a connection because they’ve been FaceTiming and texting nonstop while she’s been in England working...They’re keeping it on the down-low. He’s telling her he’s never met anyone like her before." OK sure!
According to her IMDb page, González' project in England is (probably) Cut Throat City, a drama about New Orleans' ninth ward co-starring Wesley Snipes. The Daily Mail notes that the actress has been "previously romantically linked to Liam Hemsworth." Hemsworth, last we checked, was still living it up in Malibu with longtime love Miley Cyrus and their many pets.
As for Duhamel's recent split from his wife of eight years and mother of his son Axl, singer Fergie, there's no bad blood. He recently appeared on Ellen to defend his ex's widely mocked rendition of the national anthem at the NBA All-Star Game, saying, “I think she would probably admit that it was not her best work, but the girl is crazy talented. She really is. She’s an amazing woman — an amazing human being, really.” And she's not at all upset over the backlash, according to Duhamel. "Trust me, she’s fine. She is about as resilient as they come.”
