OK! reported on the rumored romance on August 19, when the sweet duo were spotted on a romantic bike ride through New York City. A source later confirmed that the Divergent actress and the Logan Lucky lead's chemistry is "off the charts", but that the pair is keeping it casual for now.
“Both of them have recently come out of serious relationships, which is why they’re taking things slow and not putting any pressure on themselves,” the insider explained. “They’re not quite ready to shout it from the rooftops, but they’re enjoying the ride so far."
The Magic Mike hunk, 41, who called it quits on his two-year on-off romance with singer Jessie J last October — “has a reputation as a flirt and it’s clear Lenny isn’t impressed,” dishes the source. “But he knows better than to butt in when it comes to Zoe’s relationships.”
The source explains that the rocker, 57, has “had to sit back and bite his tongue” when it comes to several of his only child’s relationships over the years. The Big Little Lies actress, 32, was linked to stars including Michael Fassbender, Chris Pine and Penn Badgley before her short-lived marriage to Karl Glusman, which ended last December.
A source previously spilled to OK! about their red hot romance, saying that “Channing has a bad boy charm that Zoe loves, and he thinks she’s sexy as hell.” But it seems that it will take a lot more than that to impress her rockstar dad.
“Lenny accepts it’s futile to try and influence whom Zoe’s attracted to,” shares a source, adding once again that she’s into the actor’s “bad boy charisma.”
“Lenny’s spent a lot of time in Hollywood, so he knows these high-profile dalliances tend to end badly,” mentions the source, adding that the musician’s always been Zoe’s shoulder to cry on.
“Lenny wants to let his daughter make her own choices,” they add, “but he is going to be watching the situation very closely.”
