Paula Abdul found love in Rhode Island !
Word is that Paula Abdul, 49, got back on the saddle right after breaking things off with her long-time boyfriend, 32-year-old music entrepreneur Jeff Bratton. Apparently, the “The X-Factor U.S.” judge met John Caprio, 40, through mutual friends back in November 2011 (the same month she and Bratton called it quits) and they’ve been together since. She was reported to have already met his large family and instantly clicked with them.
Caprio, a businessman, is based in Rhode Island. It looks like this will be another long-distance relationship for the Los Angeles-based Abdul, since it can be recalled that ex-boyfriend Bratton was also based in New York during their year-and-a-half-long relationship. Their busy work schedules, Bratton said in an interview last January 2012, was the main reason things fizzled between them, leading to the break up.
Abdul has already been married twice: to Emilio Estevez from 1992 to 1994, and Brad Beckerman from 1996 to 1998.
