John Mellencamp, who recently split from his wife of 18 years, has found a new lady friend.
Actress Meg Ryan has been spotted backstage at a couple of the rock star's US tour dates recently, but here comes the scandal…
Back in October the pair were seen walking arm-in-arm in New York City!
Could Meg have been the deciding factor for John's split with his wife?
Word also has it that Meg is part of John's new collaboration with producer T Bone Burnett on a musical Ghost Brothers of Darkling County and she was voicing one of the characters.
Maybe this is just an innocent friendship and maybe that friendship has a few benefits, but we guess only time will tell.
