Carmen Electra has been linked to Olympic swimmer Ryan Lochte, just weeks after her split from "X Factor" producer Simon Cowell.
The 40-year-old actress and model was reportedly caught kissing Lochte, 26, during a night out at Bootsy Bellows in Hollywood on Tuesday. Lochte tweeted a photograph of himself with Electra, who he openly referred to as "my biggest crush."
"Me and beautiful @carmenelectra my biggest crush since childhood. Finally meeting her. #jeah," Lochte boasted in a Twitter post.
Onlookers claim that at one point the unlikely pair was caught in an intimate embrace, although these reports are yet to be confirmed.
"They were in a booth together and he had his arm around her and they were kissing on the lips. At one point, they were standing up and kissing and everyone saw them," a source told E! news.
"They did not leave together, and I am not sure if they will see each other again," the source continued. "But they have been tweeting and instagraming back and forth."
Electra has been linked to various Hollywood celebrities and was once married to basketball star Dennis Rodman and rock musician Dave Navarro.
Her marriage to Rodman lasted five months while she stayed married to Navarro for three years. In 2008 Electra prepared to get married for a third time to guitarist Rob Patterson, although the pair eventually called off their engagement.
Lochte, who won two gold medals at last summer's London Games, has previously linked to R&B singer K. Michelle and Australian swimmer Blair Evans.
