Oh please no! Don't let this be true!
Director Tim Burton was SIGHted last week outside of a London cinema embracing a mystery blonde!
The two were spotted leaving the theater together following a screening of The Wicker Man. After walking a few blocks, they stopped and shared an intimate kiss!
Onlookers say they saw Tim and the unknown lady ducking into the Dark Shadows of an alleyway in order to sneak a smooch!
But is Burton two-timing his two-time Oscar-nominated actress partner? Or is him kissing another gal not so big a deal?
After all, Tim and Helena are known to have a VERY unconventional relationship. They even live in separate but neighboring houses!
"He always visits, which is really touching. He's always coming over. It really is a great idea. You never have to compromise emotionally or feel invaded."
And despite their romantic involvement, Tim has been known to make Helena audition for her roles in all of his films, including her parts in Alice In Wonderland, Big Fish and Sweeney Todd!
According to Tim, he doesn't want to be accused of playing favorites!
A point driven home even further if he was indeed locking lips with this mystery lady!
