Is Dane DiLiegro dating Paula Abdul? 'Prey' star warns fans against 'fraud info'
Paula Abdul and Dane DiLiegro walked together on the red carpet for 'Prey' on August 2, which led some fans to speculate that love might be in the air between them. This led to the rumor that the two are "all over each other" gaining ground, and the pair's followers couldn't get enough of them after the release of a glowing snapshot they took on the red carpet.
However, the former professional basketball player-turned-actor has recently made clear his relationship status on his Instagram Story. On August 4, Thursday, DiLiegro posted a selfie with the statement, "I'm also not dating anybody so whatever is being put out there is fraud info," along with a thumbs-up.
At the red carpet at the Regency Village Theatre that happened this week in Los Angeles, Abdul was present alongside the upcoming star and other cast members. On the red carpet, DiLiegro, who is approximately 7 feet tall, towered over the petite 'Straight Up' hitmaker. Abdul looked classy in a short-sleeved little dress, while DiLiegro looked dapper in a blue suit with a white shirt, matching shoes, and pointed-toe heels.
Even though they looked gorgeous together, the duo is not romantically involved. The two are content being single, with DiLiegro focused on his new movie release, and the former 'American Idol' judge, who had previously been romantically linked to JT Torregiani, keeping herself active by visiting various events.
In the fifth installment of the legendary horror-action film 'Predator', starring Arnold Schwarzenegger from 1987, DiLiegro will portray the role of the predator. In an effort to breathe new life into the series, Hulu and 20th Century Studios are releasing a film that stands apart from all of the previous 'Predator' films. Hulu shared the image on their official Instagram account on August 3, Wednesday to promote the thrilling film, which will be streamable beginning on August 5.
DiLiegro told Entertainment Weekly, "I retired from basketball just short of three years ago and moved to Los Angeles to start acting. I had two characters in mind that I wanted to do. One was the Predator, the other was Jason Voorhees for Friday the 13th."
"To this day, I can't believe that I got the opportunity to portray the Predator. I still can't believe it," DiLiegro added. Before taking on his role in 'Prey', he even appeared on the spooky 'American Horror Stories' and as a zombie in 'The Walking Dead'. "I think I was one of the tallest walkers in Walking Dead history," DiLiegro joked.
