Rumors that Dale Moss may have cheated on former bachelor Claire Crowley with a “mysterious woman” named Eleanor Srugo are circulating on the Internet this week.
While Srugo categorically denies ever being romantically involved or dating the former NFL pro, a photo taken in downtown Cipriani sparked speculation that the couple was more than a friend
However, sources close to Srugo exclusively told Page Six on Friday that she came across the 32-year-old Moss in the Manhattan hotspot and actually had a date.
“These recommendations for dinner at Cipriani are incorrect,” said its spokesman, Ron Torosyan. “Miss. Srugo was with a boy and a group of friends he was seeing at Cipriani. It̵
Her publicist added that Douglas Eliman’s broker was “focused on her real estate career” and “never connected to Dale and [they] never dated. She was there with someone she was dating at the time. “
Well! News previously reported that the outing “definitely looked like a date” and “Dale looked really smiling and happy with it. They laughed and flirted. ”
However, a source told Page Six that Srugo was sitting at another table tonight and was not one of the women depicted next to Moss in the photo, which was distributed online. We are told that the woman sitting next to Crowley’s ex-boyfriend is model Brooks Nader, who is married to Billy Hare.
Earlier in the day, paparazzi took pictures of Moss, Nader and Rachel Hilbert grabbing lunch in New York and attending a Hugo Boss event. The group appears to have gone for a drink in downtown Chipriani, where Moss then encountered Srugo.
“Don’t go to Cipriani if you’re cheating,” a source said. “You go there to be seen.”
We are told that Moss and Srugo exchanged only a quick greeting and goodbye.
Torosyan told us earlier, “They have never been romantically involved in any way. Eleanor was excited about his engagement and wished him all the best. “
Crowley and Moss, meanwhile, have not commented on the alleged fraud scandal.
The former couple announced that they are separating after a five-month engagement and a whirlwind romance.
Moss wrote in a statement regarding the separation: “We appreciate the love and support we have received from so many people, but this is the healthiest decision for both of us at the moment. We hope only the best things for each other. “
Crowley then seemed blinded by Moss’s “mutual” statement by writing on Instagram, “The truth is, I’m crushed.”
In Season 16 of The Bachelorette, Crowley and Moss got engaged in just a few weeks.
Moss and Crowley’s representatives did not immediately return our requests for comment.
