Despite claiming recently that he was ‘”too busy to date,” Mark Salling may have found time to embark on a new romance with a Norwegian pop star.
The Glee actor met Anine Sprang at an industry party on April 11. According to Radar Online, the pair began dating and have seen each other a number of times since first hitting it off. A source told Radar, “She was standing with some friends and he came over to her right away. She had no idea who he was but she thought he was really cute and they hit it off. Anine is a babe and she’s used to having guys hit on her, so she usually has her guard up, but Mark charmed her right off the bat.”
The 27-year-old actor took Anine to dinner the next night and afterward they shared a dessert. The pop singer was eager to dish about her romantic date with the Glee hunk on her blog. “Had dinner with Mark Salling from Glee last night,” she wrote. “And we got this AMAZING brownie for desert. I’m pretty sure they put something illegal in it. Crack-brownie. They just let the crack part out on the menu. It was the best thing I’ve ever had in my life. It looks pretty nasty on this pic, but the taste was orgasmic! Have you guys seen Glee yet? Its a super fun TV show, very popular over here, and I know they started airing it in Norway too. You should check it out!”
Anine and Mark have reportedly been out a few more times this month and seem to be hitting it off. “They’re really into each other. They didn’t leave until about 1:30 AM. They spent the whole night just talking and laughing,” Radar’s source said.
But could this relationship be a desperate attempt for Anine to cash in on Glee fame? According to a source close to Mark, that is exactly what Anine is trying to do. “She knew exactly who he is [when they met]. It’s pretty clear what she’s trying to do. They’re not dating nor did they ever go to any of those places together.”
Ladies everywhere may still have hope for landing the young actor. Mark’s rep recently responded to questions about the romance with Anine by stating: “Sorry, I don’t know who the girl is you are referring to. Mark is single.”
