Ranked one of the Top 5 sexiest men in 2010, it seems Romeo Miller is taking full advantage of that status.
The 21-year-old, who recently starred in Jumping the Broom, hasn’t been romantically linked to any one woman, but images of him with “Dancing With the Stars” coach Chelsie Hightower and singer Jordin Sparks have some wondering whether he’s living up to his name. He also admitted to OK! that he’d like to take actress and singer Vanessa Hudgens out on a date.
There’s nothing wrong with a hot, single guy actively dating or just spending time with multiple women who are equally young and sexy.
However, a recent photo of Romeo in a lip lock with “Cheers” star Kirstie Alley, who is nearly three times his age, raised more than a few eyebrows. Kirstie quickly took to Twitter indicating that the smooch was for the benefit of the paparazzi, but she also suggested that the kiss was Romeo’s idea.
That doesn’t exactly do anything to minimize his growing playboy image.
Romeo’s movie co-star, Tasha Smith, assured Sister 2 Sister that she’s not really a cougar, but Romeo hasn’t been so quick to reject the idea of dating someone outside of his age bracket.
“For me, the age comes in the education. When I talk to you and you talk to me, and I see where your mind’s at, that’s how I can tell if I like you,” Romeo told Vibe magazine in March. When asked if he’d date a woman in her 30s, he responded, “Of course.”
Romeo isn’t just talking that talk; he’s singing that song, too. His new track, “Famous Girl,” mentions women of all ages, including Kirstie, Wendy Williams, Halle Berry, Selita Ebanks, Zoe Saldana, Whitney Houston, Alicia Keys and Rihanna.
Despite his obvious love for the ladies, Romeo, who told Sister 2 Sister that he recently experienced his first heartbreak, said he’s not chasing any women; although, he is looking.
“I’m single, just looking for my Juliet,” he said.
Listen to Romeo’s “Famous Girl” now.
