Actor James Marsden has fuelled rumours suggesting he is dating British singer Edei after joining her onstage for a surprise duet at a show in Los Angeles.

The X-Men star, 42, has been romantically linked to the 27-year-old since last summer (15), but the pair has yet to comment on the reports.

However, fans were left in little doubt about the true status of their relationship on Tuesday night (09Feb16) after James teamed up with Edei to perform acoustic versions of Ed Sheeran's Thinking Out Loud, and the sexy Marvin Gaye classic, Let's Get it On, during a Recording Academy's MusiCares Foundation event at the Skybar club, reports
It's not the first time James, who also played guitar, has shown off his musical skills - he sang in his movies Hairspray and Enchanted, while back in 2014, he collaborated with country trio Lady Antebellum for a rendition of Garth Brooks' Friends in Low Places during an appearance on Los Angeles-based DJ Ryan Seacrest's radio show.

James was previously linked to Bradley Cooper's ex-girlfriend, model Suki Waterhouse, in the spring of 2015.

The father-of-three divorced his ex-wife Lisa Linde - the mother of two of his kids - in 2011. He has also fathered a three-year-old son, named William Luca, with Brazilian model Rose Costa.

James spoke in the past about his view on relationships, admitting he is somewhat of a hopeless romantic.
“I find as I get older I'm more traditional and old-fashioned," he told "I prefer face to face conversation as opposed to texting. You need to go out of your way to spend good time with one another, you need to have a date night. Whether you have kids or a career or whatever, for a relationship to thrive, it's about making time for each other.”
