Lauren Pope is dating Wretch 32.
The 'Only Way is Essex' beauty - who recently split with co-star Tom Pearce - and the rapper were spotted getting close at London's Funky Buddha nightspot on Tuesday (31.07.12) at a birthday party hosted by 'TOWIE' hunk Joey Essex - and the couple have had a "real laugh" together on their first few dates.
A source told The Sun newspaper: "Wretch is a big ladies' man and gets on really well with Lauren. They have a real laugh together and enjoy each other's company.
"It's very early days - they're some way from being an item - but for the time being they are enjoying the flirting."
Lauren has been joking with Wretch - whose real name is Jermaine Scott - on twitter, and she took to the social networking site to post a picture of the couple with her fellow 'TOWIE' stars James 'Arg' Argent and Gemma Collins, who recently hooked up, and said it was a "funny night" on Tuesday.
As well as enjoying plenty of banter on twitter - where their relationship started to blossom - Wretch has also mentioned the 28-year-old beauty in a track on his new mixtape, 'Wretchercise'.
Lauren - who previously went out with Kirk Norcross - was recently embroiled in an argument with her 'TOWIE' co-star Lauren Goodger after the brunette star started dating Tom following the end of his and Lauren's relationship.
