Tim Tebow's girlfriend, according to new reports out, is actress Camilla Belle.
According to celebrity rumor website TMZ, the New York Jets quarterback, who has been mostly unused by his team this season, was seen out at club Latitude 30 in Jacksonville, Florida on Tuesday night on an apparent date.
The pair were seen holding hands and the outing was more than just a meeting between friends, TMZ has suggested.
Despite the new rumors neither Belle or Tebow have commented on their relationship.
Camilla Belle is an American actress, whose works include "When a Stranger Calls," "10,000 BS," "The Quiet," "Push," and "Breakaway."
Already various media outlets have made much of Tebow's vow of abstinence and strong belief in sexual relations only within marriage. Many are now making much of the link between Belle and abstinence - she previously also dated Joe Jonas in 2008. The Jonas brother is also well known for his vow of abstinence and promotion of marriage before sex.
Belle and Jonas began dating in October 2008, and she went on to star in his band's music video for hit song "Lovebug." However, by late July 2009 Belle and Jonas split.
Meanwhile, in was recently reported that Tebow, the popular Christian quarterback, has officially trademarked "Tebowing."
Tebow, currently the backup quarterback for the New York Jets, said last week that he wanted "to just control how it's used ... make sure it's used the right way."
"I knew it was something that was cool for me in the past, but it's not something that I do as 'Tebowing.' It's something that I do that's prayer for me and then it got hyped up as 'Tebowing.'"
"Tebowing" became popular last year after Tebow's team, the Denver Broncos, upset the Miami Dolphins. The quarterback knelt down (on one knee) in the endzone and held a clenched fist against his forehead as he prayed. The move was picked up by the public with everyone from Christians to celebrities and NFL players imitating the pose.
Time magazine named Tebowing No. 5 on its 2011 list of "Top Ten Memes."
Tebow, 25, has stated that he is flattered by the trend but also mentioned that he has been "doing this same exact routine for the last seven years."
