Pair said to have been texting each other

Kim Kardashian is said to have gotten close to footballer Wayne Bridge.

The socialite met the Manchester City star, 29, in Miami earlier this month.

And they have reportedly exchanged texts to set up a date when she flies to London next week.

‘It’s early days but she’s certainly put a smile on Wayne‘s face as she’s great fun and absolutely gorgeous,’ a source tells The Sun.

‘He’s looking forward to catching up when she’s in town.’

Kim, 29, began dating Reggie Bush, 25, in 2007 but they ended their romance earlier this month. 

Wayne‘s former Chelsea teammate John Terry allegedly had a fling with his ex-girlfriend Vanessa Perroncel.
