The ROLLIN' singer, 32, whose band are performing in the British capital, is reportedly besotted with the beauty after spotting her at the city's trendy TANTRA nightclub last week (28MAR04).
An source close to the singer says, "Fred instantly picked her as the most gorgeous girl in the room and wasted no time in introducing himself.
"At first Marina didn't have any idea who he was. He was dressed pretty scruffily, but seemed quite down-to-earth.
"She's used to a lot of male attention, but Fred bombarded her with compliments and she was very flattered."
The insider adds, "Even when he was on stage he could barely keep his eyes off Marina.
"After the show he whisked her straight off to one of his favourite London restaurants. They had dinner and then the DJ played some tunes just for them.
"It was really romantic."05/04/2004 13:56
