The cover of this week’s National Enquirer, which has more photos of the couple together
The National Enquirer has exclusive details and photos in its new issue about Christina Applegate’s new boyfriend, a talented bass player from Holland who happens to be missing one of his front teeth. Applegate recently lost her longterm on-off boyfriend, who died in an apparent heroin overdose just over a week ago. 26-year-old photographer Lee Grivas was found dead in his Hollywood apartment with a syringe nearby. Applegate and Grivas were said to have reunited briefly this spring, but Grivas suffered a relapse and they had been apart for about 6 weeks when he died.
Now Applegate, 36, has a new boyfriend, and although he’s normal looking before he opens his mouth it’s hard to get past that gap-toothed grin. 39 year-old Martyn Lenoble has played bass for top bands like Janes Addiction, Porno for Pyros and The Cult. He is said to be comforting her while she mourns the loss of Grivas. They were photographed together and seen holding hands and kissing:
[Christina Applegate] has found comfort in the arms of tattooed, gap-toothed rocker Martyn Lenoble.
The couple was spotted July 5 leaving her Hollywood Hills home in the morning, attending a gathering at a friend’s home, shopping at the Guitar Center music store, and kissing and holding hands.

I couldn’t find any photos of the guy online with his mouth open, but there’s a clear picture in the National Enquirer and he definitely has a huge tooth missing. It’s not exaggerated in that cover photo or anything. There’s plenty of praise online for his bass playing ability, and maybe he’s a great person and really attentive and everything.
It’s superficial sure, but I don’t think I could get past that guy’s mouth long enough to notice if he has a great personality. Do you think you could date a guy with a front tooth missing? It’s not like he just got punched out last week, the Enquirer has a photo of him from 2003 without the tooth so he’s probably never going to fix it. Maybe Applegate will talk him into some dental intervention.
