Kate Winslet and Louis Dowler: Over
Kate Winslet looked delighted as she left for Necker Island with her on-off model boyfriend Louis Dowler last month. But by the end of the stay, she left completely loved up with Richard Branson’s nephew Ned – a super-quick love turn-around even by Kate’s standards.
Ned was on his uncle’s Dhs340million private Caribbean island to get over his separation from his wife Eliza, the multi-millionaire Viscount Cowdray’s daughter.
A source revealed, “Ned was heartbroken and went to Necker Island to take his mind of things.
“But when Kate came out they really hit it off. They had met before on the island but were both in relationships. When they left they travelled to New York to be together.”
Kate, who won an Emmy last week for her role in Mildred Pierce, announced her separation from American Beauty director Sam Mendes in March last year, and started dating Louis about five months later.
Ned, who works for his uncle’s space venture Virgin Galactic, has been spotted on a number of dates with Kate in England since returning from Necker.
Ned was born Ned Abel Smith, but changed his surname to ‘RocknRoll’ by deed poll.
It’s obviously very early days, but could we one day be watching ‘Kate RocknRoll’ in any future Titanic sequels?
