Sir Richard Branson denies gossips about his son and Natalie Imbruglia‘s romance. The Virgin tycoon insists that although he would welcome the pop singer in his family, her son, Sam Branson, is not romantically involved with her.The 23-year-old son was reportedly seen last month “canoodling” with the 33-year-old Imbruglia at a celebrity party in London. However, Branson says the “Wrong Impression” singer is just “a close friend of the family.”
He tells The Daily Telegraph,
Sam was very flattered to have his name attached to hers, but he actually already has a girlfriend.
He’s known Natalie since he was about 15, she’s a close friend of the family, but even if there was a temptation there, he’s safe in the Arctic for the next while anyway.
Branson adds that Imbruglia was aware of the rumors and apparently just laughed it off.
He adds, “I saw Natalie last week and she was certainly smiling about the whole situation.”
