Guy Ritchie Dating Jemima Khan?

I know who Jemima Khan is for two reasons: she dated Hugh Grant and Vanity Fair won’t shut up about her family, The Goldsmiths. Seriously, Vanity Fair has been stuck on them for a couple of years- there’s been several articles about the passing of her father, Sir James Goldsmith, and his various restaurants, properties, affairs, personal issues. So by this rationale, I’m thinking the late Sir James Goldsmith was like the English landed-gentry version of Donald Trump. And my idea of knights and lords is stuck in Jane Austen-ville, by the way.

Apparently Jemima Khan is more than a Vanity Fair’s fetish and “one of the best-dressed women in the world”. She’s also making eyes at Madonna’s ex, Guy Ritchie. Judging solely from Khan’s general prettiness, I’d say she is a vast improvement for Guy.

Just as their divorce settlement was making news, Madonna’s ex-husband, Guy Ritchie, appeared to be celebrating his freedom and the holidays with someone new – millionaire heiress Jemima Khan.

The two attended a London dinner party together earlier this month at the home public-relations honcho Matthew Freud and his wife, Elisabeth Murdoch, daughter of media mogul Rupert Murdoch, reports London’s Telegraph newspaper.

Khan, 33, is the socialite daughter of Lady Annabel Goldsmith (for whom the London nightclub was named) and the late financier Sir James Goldsmith. In 1995, she married Pakistani cricket player (now retired) Imran Khan, and they had two sons, now 12 and 9. The couple divorced in 2004, and she was later attached to actor Hugh Grant, though that relationship has ended, say British newspapers.

Returning to the Freuds’ home for a Christmas party this weekend, Ritchie and Khan joined such other holiday revelers as Stella and Mary McCartney, Lily Allen, Mick Jagger and Kevin Spacey, reports the Mirror.

At that earlier dinner party at the Freuds’ Notting Hill home, says the Telegraph, another of the guests was Trudie Styler, wife of Sting – and the matchmaker who had first introduced Ritchie and Madonna in 1999.

Is this definitive proof? Absolutely not. But it makes some kind of sense. We know Guy has a type – rich women who behave like aristocrats. It’s Guy’s Achilles heel. Flash some cash and throw a drink in someone’s face, and Guy will be trying to get into your pants. We need to save him from himself. I’ll give him credit, though – at least he chose an authentic “aristocrat” (my Class-Warrior Meter is going crazy, by the way), rather than some chick from Detroit with bigger (gristlier) muscles than him.

I’m also going to go out on a limb and say that I want to be invited to these cool parties. Guy Ritchie, Mick Jagger, Lily Allen and Kevin Spacey? Who will go home with whom at the end of the night? I wonder if “matchmaker” Trudie Styler was working that night.

    Wonder how he feels to be with someone that looks like a woman?

    Yet even someone as sophisticated as Jemima has flashed her britney getting out of a car. Why is everyone so against underwear?

    I ran into Jemima Khan once when she lived in Pakistan with her then-husband, the cricketing legend Imran Khan. She is absolutely beautiful in person. Guy would be lucky to spend time with her. Her ex-husband is a national hero in Pakistan not just for his cricketing prowess but for his social philanthropy work – he set up a cancer hospital in honor of his mother who died of the disease. Jemima came out here and married him at the age of 21, converted to Islam, and really threw herself into life here, but in the end the social and cultural differences were just too much, and people said she missed the glittering life of London. It’s really a fascinating story, actually.

    Good for guy. Hope he finds happiness.

  5. Kaiser says:

    That reminds me, Bina – wasn’t Jemima good friends with the late Princess Diana?

  6. abbizmal says:

    Definite upgrade. Of course, anything would be an upgrade over gristly vadge.

  7. Carrie says:

    Correct Kaiser – Diana became involved with Jemima’s charity projects in the couple of years before her death and the two were certainly friendly, tho Diana was closest to Jemima’s mum Annabel Goldsmith.
