Sheryl Crow is a busy busy woman. She has two kids, is on tour with (rumored) former flame Kid Rock, and now… She’s got herself a new boyfriend. She is usually tight lipped about things, preferring to blast out her relationships in song, but the cancer survivor recently stepped out with her new(ish) boyfriend at the Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center’s 2011 Spring Ball in New York.
Why do I say he’s new(ish)? Her new boyfriend, musician Doyle Bramhall II, has been her producer and bandmate for years!
“They’ve known each other for a really long time but it only turned romantic recently,” the source says. “She’s really happy. He’s a really great guy.”
Contrary to her previously stated desire to keep her private life super private, Sheryl also decided to blab in an interview about him, talking about being friends first.
“We have a great foundation, having known each other for 15 years,” she tells the magazine. “[But] I’ve been in the situation where I’ve been involved with people and their kids, [*cough*Lance Armstrong*cough*] and if the relationship doesn’t work out, it’s heartbreak. So I’m keeping the relationship friend-based when we’re around the kids.”
