Over the weekend, John Mellencamp was photographed strolling hand-in-hand with a beautiful woman on the beach. Now, the mystery of her identity is over.
Page Six reported the singer has been quietly dating Natasha Barrett, a Los Angeles-based real estate agent with an impressive résumé.
According to her bio at The Agency, Natasha “has worked with many high-profile L.A. individuals, including designers, writers, and directors as well as fashion and entertainment industry professionals.”
Prior to her real estate career, Natasha, 46, apparently worked in the film and magazine industries and owned her own fashion brand at one point. She also had a brief cameo on Netflix’s “Emily in Paris.”
It’s not publicly known how Natasha, a mother of two, and the “Jack & Diane” singer met, but they’ve reportedly dated for “a few months.”
Ironically, Natasha’s bio indicates she’s interested in “traveling the world in search of her soulmate.”
John, 69, was most recently linked to dermatologist-to-the-stars Jamie Sue Sherrill, whom he met via his daughter, “The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills” alum Teddi Mellencamp. He and Jamie split after spending most of 2020 together.
Prior to that, John dated Meg Ryan off-and-on for years.
