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.

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.

Star-Studded Party

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.

Also in attendance that night, according to the Mail, was Simon Cowell – who apparently also had an eye for Khan.
