BEVERLY HILLS, 90210 and DWTS alum JENNIE GARTH is making beautiful music with the new man in her life – Big Gigantic drummer Jeremy Salken!
And insiders say she’s so smitten with the rocker she’s even following the band on the road.
The 40-year-old mom of three girls was crushed last year when her second husband, “Twilight” star Peter Facinelli, 39, ran off with 28-year-old “Thor” cutie Jaimie Alexander. But her new romance with Jeremy is giving her reason to smile again, say sources.
The two were spotted together at a Dec. 28 concert in Hampton, Va., where an eyewitness says they were “all over each other” while watching another act perform. When Big Gigantic took the stage, Jennie was “as excited as a teenybopper, clapping and jumping up and down with the music. No question they’re a couple – and it looks really serious.”
Jennie – whose first husband was also a drummer – and Salken, 41, met over a year ago at the Coachella Music Festival in Indio, Calif. But the two remained “just friends” until her 11-year marriage collapsed in March. When Big Gigantic played the House of Blues in Los Angeles on Oct. 5, the two hooked up again, and they’ve been a couple ever since, says a source.
In the January issue of “Health” magazine, Jennie explained how her attitude about dating had evolved.
“Looks aren’t important to me anymore,” she said. “I like positive energy.”
But it seems like Jennie is getting both good looks AND positive energy with the handsome musician.
Another source said: “Jennie told me, ‘I never thought I’d fall in love again, but it’s happening, and I couldn’t be more excited!’”
