While Preity Zinta brings her ex beau Ness Wadia to book, it has come to light that she may already have a new man in her life.
The man in question is said to be the LA-based Gene Goodenough. He is the same person who has been asked to testify in the Preity-Ness case as he was at the Wankhede Stadium with the dimpled actress watching IPL semi-final match when the alleged scuffle between Preity and Ness took place.
Now, reports claim that Gene Goodenough is actually the new man in Preity Zinta’s life about whom she had confessed recently. The actress had admitted that she is dating someone who isn’t from the film industry.
Being Preity’s special guest, he accompanied the actress to the IPL 2014 semi-final match where Preity and Ness had the alleged squabble that took an ugly turn. Gene also happens to be one of the key witnesses in the case filed by the actress against Ness Wadia, whom she has charged of physical and verbal abuse.
As per reports, Gene is based in Los Angeles and the 30-something works as a financial analyst. Preity and Gene apparently met on one of Zinta's trips to the US a few years back. “He supports, encourages and understands her. Gene gave her company during this year’s IPL and she flew back with him to the US after the finals, as he had to return to work,” a source is quoted saying.
Yes, Gene was apparently the reason why Preity was in Los Angeles after filing the case. Rumours of her settling in the US have also been doing the rounds, but the actress has rubbished such rumours.
