RAG’N’Bone Man is flying high with the music – but his love life isn’t running quite as smoothly.
I can reveal he has split from his girlfriend Zoe Beardsall after almost a year.
In January I revealed he had secretly been dating the mum of three, who works in a cafe near his home in East Sussex, for several months.
But now I’m told they have separated and she has unfollowed the Human singer, whose real name is Rory Graham, on social media.
A source said: “Things have been full-on for Rory around the release of his album and everything, so it has been difficult to spend a lot of time together.
“It hasn’t worked out between them and they have called things off.
“Rory has now gone down to Cornwall without her for some time out to reflect, after what has been quite a hectic few months.
“It seems as though that is it for them, which is a real shame.
“But they are both busy parents so it was always a juggling act to see each other.”
It comes just weeks after his second studio album Life By Misadventure, featuring the songs All You Ever Wanted and Anywhere Away From Here with Pink, topped the charts.
He has long had better fortunes with his music than romances, having split from his wife Beth Rouy in 2019 after just six months of marriage.
They were together for a decade and had their son Reuben before tying the knot.
But things soon fizzled out, with Rag’n’Bone Man getting together with Zoe several months later.
This latest heartbreak is unlikely to inspire his next album, though, as he previously said he couldn’t think of anything worse than having songs about his divorce on his record.
He said: “I’m bored of break-up songs. I don’t want people to listen to my music and think how depressing it is.
“So, when I was feeling a bit sorry for myself, I just hung my head and thought, ‘I’m not going to write anything for a bit, because it’s just going to turn out sad and pathetic’.
“There’s more to be said. There are other things to write about.”
Judging by the reaction to his latest album, he must be right.
Adam goes back to 70s
ADAM LAMBERT has revealed his new album will feature the songs he has written for an original upcoming musical that is set in the Seventies.
During an Instagram Live, he said: “My next album will be a concept album of the musical that I’m writing, with me singing the majority of it.
“It’s not going to be a cast recording.
“It’s going to be an Adam album.
“But it just so happens that there’s a story threading all of the songs together.
“I am really excited for that. It’s something different for me.”
Easy Life enjoy the high life
EASY LIFE are about to hit No2 in the charts tomorrow with debut album Life’s A Beach.
Their music has also crossed the Pond – and caught the attention of Shawn Mendes.
The Leicester band were surprised to see he had followed them on Instagram last week and they have since chatted to him online.
Asked if they’d messaged him, frontman Murray Matravers told me: “Yeah. We just said, ‘What are you doing? Why are you following us? Please tell all of your fans about our album’.
“And he said he had listened to it and really enjoyed it. So I can’t believe that a) he started following us and b) he replied to our DM.”
Since the record’s release last week, Easy Life have been flying high – at one point quite literally, as they hired a hot air balloon at the weekend to cruise above their city.
Murray said: “It was incredible. We were screaming at people and everyone down below was waving.
“We wanted to treat ourselves after we released the album
"We thought an air balloon was something we could blag from our label and they’d pay.”
Olivia Rodrigo looks set to keep the top spot with her album Sour, but Easy Life should be proud.
Model Irina's got good jeans
IRINA Shayk has been linked to rapper Kanye West – and I can see why she might have caught his eye.
The Russian model looked in great shape as she strolled around New York on Tuesday with daughter Lea, who she had in 2017 with then-boyfriend, actor Bradley Cooper.
She wore tight grey jeans and shades while out and about in the Big Apple, a week after the claims about her and Kanye surfaced.
The pair are believed to be seeing each other following his break-up from wife Kim Kardashian in February after almost seven years of marriage.
Irina had previously appeared in the video to his single, Power, in 2010.
She also walked the runway for Kanye’s collection at Paris Fashion Week in 2012.
Irina may be popping up in the superstar’s new releases even more now.
Damian homes in on his music
DAMIAN Lewis is eyeing up a change of direction by recording a debut album.
The Homeland actor, whose actress wife Helen McCrory died in April, has been working on original music and a record is now on the way.
He said: “We’ve put together a bunch of songs and there’s chat of trying to put some tracks down in a recording studio . . . seeing if there’s something there that people might want to listen to.”
But Damian revealed he is also apprehensive about releasing the collection – because he fears he might get mocked for it.
On the Out To Lunch With Jay Rayner podcast, Damian added: “When it comes to creative choices like this, I’m very cautious.”
He went on: “Of course, they will be lining up to take shots as I stick my head above the parapet because no one is an easier target than an actor who thinks he can be a bit of a musician.
“But I don’t want to go off and be a great jazz star or pop star, or rock star.
“I’m an actor. I want to remain in my discipline. But for me this is something of unbelievable value.
“It’s so much fun and what we don’t do well in this country is we don’t cross-fertilise across the different arts and that’s a big shame. So I need a bit of pushing or shoving.”
As soon as the chance to perform live returns again, I bet there will be no stopping him.
This is England
DAVID Beckham looked like he was doing his best Poldark impression after taking his top off in a field near the family home in the Cotswolds.
The former footballer posed in a picture for Instagram followers to show off his tan as the early-June temperatures soared.
And while I know plenty of people who would do practically anything to bump into Becks looking like this, his wife Victoria wasn’t quite as impressed.
He captioned the image: “Yep this is England.
"It’s what we do, sun comes out, we take our shirts off.
“Even walking the dogs when @victoriabeckham is laughing at me.”
LADY GAGA’s postponed her Chromatica Ball tour for a second time.
It includes the show at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium in London, which had been due to take place on July 30.
Announcing the rescheduling of the show, she said: “While some parts of the world are moving quickly to open up, others are not yet ready.
So until we can confirm all global dates, we have to postpone The Chromatica Ball to the summer of 2022.”
BEING in the flop 2019 film Cats hasn’t put Taylor Swift off appearing in a movie.
She has joined a cast including Margot Robbie, Christiann Bale, Robert De Niro, Rami Malek, Anya Taylor-Joy, Mike Myers and Zoe Saldana in a new flick, which has the provisional title Canterbury Glass.
Production has wrapped in the US, with Taylor shooting scenes earlier this year.
But the plot is a closely guarded secret.
It is directed by David O. Russell, who made critically acclaimed films Silver Linings Playbook and American Hustle.
Cats is estimated to have lost its makers around £80million.
Fingers crossed this one fares a bit better.
