Puddle Of Mudd rocker WES SCANTLIN has confirmed that he is dating sexy model Rachel Hunter.

The BLURRY star was linked to Rod Stewart's estranged wife earlier this year (FEB03) after her relationship with British pop singer Robbie Williams came to an end but both denied they were anything more than just good friends.

However, smitten Scantlin has now decided to go public with the romance after falling deeply in love with the New Zealand-born beauty.

He enthuses, "She's very, very awesome. I don't like to discuss the details but we're together, and she's really sweet and beautiful, and she's an awesome, awesome chick."
