After her bitter divorce battle, Adrienne Maloof is apparently getting back into the dating scene with a little help from rock royalty two decades her junior.

The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star, 51, has been getting close with Sean Stewart, 32, son of the legendary British rocker Rod Stewart.

“Adrienne is enjoying dating,” a source close to Maloof tells PEOPLE.

The pair were spotted kissing as they left the Crustacean restaurant in Beverly Hills on Saturday. Maloof later told of their age difference: “Age is just a number.”

She added: “It’s about how good of a person you are. … [Sean] is a very funny guy. He’s very giving, he mentors at the mission, works with at-risk children, and gives his time and money to get children off the streets.”

Stewart has had his share of bumps in the road, too. He appeared on season 2 of Celebrity Rehab with Dr. Drew after battling substance abuse.

The Stewart men have a thing for older women. Rod’s first big hit, back in 1971, was “Maggie May,” which told the autobiographical story of a young man involved with an older woman.
