Paula Abdul back with ex-boyfriend Arsenio Hall

Former ‘American Idol’ judge Paula Abdul has had a change of heart – but not about the job. The former pop star has rekindled her romance with ex-boyfriend and former talk-show host Arsenio Hall a whole 20 years after they first dated!

Paula, who split from restaurateur JT Torregiani last year, first met Arsenio on the set of the 1998 Eddie ourphy movie ‘Coming to America’. He got back in touch when he heard about Paula quitting ‘Idol’.

A source reports, “Arsenio reached out because he thought Paula needed a friend to talk to – someone she could relate to. Arsenio knows what it’s like to leave a hit show. one phone call lead to another and, next thing you know, they were making a date. This could be the perfect situation for the two of them. Paula and Arsenio know each other inside out.”
