Katharine McPhee, 37, and David Foster, 71, looked smitten with one another as they stepped out in Santa Monica, California on Wednesday to enjoy dinner with friends.
Dressed in smart casual attire, the couple weren’t shy in packing on the PDA as they headed to celebrity hotspot Giorgio Baldi.
The sighting comes after David’s ex-wife Yolanda Hadid accused Zayn Malik of striking her. Her daughter Gigi Hadid responded to Yolanda’s accusations by asking for ‘privacy’, while Zayn pleaded no contest to four harassment charges.

Zayn, 28, pleaded no contest to four harassment charges against him in October and was sentenced to 360 days probation, an anger management course and told he must have no contact with Yolanda or a security guard who witnessed the fight.
He denied the claims made against him which include him pushing the reality star into a dresser and calling her a ‘s**t.’
The incident happened after a fight at the home in Pennsylvania he shares with Gigi Hadid and their daughter Khai. Gigi was modelling in Paris and Yolanda let herself into the couple’s home, seemingly without Malik’s consent.

A fight ensued, in which he allegedly called her a ‘f****** Dutch s**t’ and said: ‘Stay the f*** away from my daughter’
He is then said to have phoned Gigi in Paris and berated her down the phone, screaming: ‘Strap on some f*****g balls.’
A security guard witnessed the event and he yelled at him: ‘Get the f*** out of my f***ing house copper’.

Zayn posted a statement on social media at the time that confirmed there was an incident, that he pleaded no contest (although it was unclear at the time that he’d been criminally charged) and that he was trying to protect his daughter.
He denied striking Yolanda, as had been reported by TMZ, citing an unnamed source. He said: ‘As you all know I am a private person and I very much want to create a safe and private space for my daughter to grow up in.
‘A place where private family matters aren’t thrown on the world stage for all to poke and pick apart.
Bombshell: It’s since been claimed that Zayn and Gigi split, because of ‘tension’ sparked by the singer accusing Yolanda (above with her daughter in 2018) of leaking their pregnancy in 2020
‘In an effort to protect that space for her, I agreed to not contest claims arising from an argument I had with a family member of my partner’s who entered our home while my partner was away several weeks ago.’
Gigi and Zayn have now split – it’s unclear if that was before the September 29 incident or as a result of it.
‘This was and still should be a private matter but it seems for now there is a divisiveness and despite my efforts to restore us to a peaceful family environment that will allow for me to co-parent my daughter in a manner in which she deserves, this has been ‘leaked’ to the press.
Invasion of privacy: Zayn seemed to claim that the incident arose from an argument caused by an invasion of privacy but did not outright name Yolanda as he said it was a ‘family member of my partner’s’ (pictured: Yolanda, Gigi, Zayn)
‘I am hopeful though for healing for all involved with the harsh words shared and more importantly I remain vigilant to protect Khai and give her the privacy she deserves.’
The tension between Zayn and Yolanda allegedly began when he suspected her of leaking news of Gigi’s pregnancy to the media, according to an unnamed source cited by The Sun.
MailOnline contacted representatives for Zayn, Yolanda and Gigi for further comment at the time.

Zayn and Gigi: A timeline of their fiery on/off relationship
Rumors swirled that Zayn Malik and Gigi Hadid are on the outs once again after reports surfaced that Zayn ‘struck’ Gigi’s mom, Yolanda, last week.
Sources told TMZ that the former Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star is ‘seriously considering’ filing a police report to document the alleged assault.
In a statement to the publication, the One Direction member hoped to rise up the ‘divisiveness’ and ‘restore us to a peaceful family environment that will allow for me to co-parent my daughter in a manner in which she deserves.’
Zayn strongly rejected all allegations, stating: ‘I adamantly deny striking Yolanda Hadid and for the sake of my daughter I decline to give any further details and I hope that Yolanda will reconsider her false allegations and move towards healing these family issues in private.’
Gigi and Zayn first became an item more than six years ago when they were spotted leaving Justin Bieber’s American Music Award’s after-party holding hands; seen at the Met Gala in 2016
Gigi and Zayn first became an item more than six years ago when they were spotted leaving Justin Bieber’s American Music Award’s after-party holding hands.
A source told Us Weekly in November 2015 that while they weren’t ‘boyfriend and girlfriend’ yet, they were definitely into each other.
Months later, Gigi was spotted wearing a Z necklace on her way to Paris Fashion Week as she flashed a photo of Zayn as her phone background.
Malik however denied any romance rumors during an appearance on the Beats 1 radio show and insisted the pair were just ‘good friends.’
His debut as a solo artist took a sexy turn with the video release for his first single, Pillowtalk, starring none other than Gigi. The steamy visuals were followed by a flirty online exchange, leading many to believe that their friendship was anything but platonic.
In May, they confirmed what was already assumed as they walked hand-in-hand on the red carpet at fashion’s biggest night, the Met Gala.
He explained in November how the pair met at a Victoria’s Secret party and he approached Hadid after recognizing her from ‘her picture,’ and soon took her on a date.
‘She knows how to carry herself. She’s quite classy and that. She’s not, like, arrogant in any way,’ he told ES Magazine. ‘She’s confident. She carries it well. She’s cool.’
Their romance continued to flourish, albeit mostly privately, but Gigi stepped behind the lens to snap Zayn for the Spring 2017 Versus Versace campaign.
The Italian luxury brand shared a clip on their Twitter account with Gigi asking: ‘When you’re alone, who do you want next to you?’ to which Malik smiled while replying, ‘You.’
Lucky in love: Gigi and Zayn welcomed their daughter into the world one year ago
In January, Gigi shared a romantic tribute to her boyfriend to mark his birthday. ‘Love this man more than I could ever put into words [and] am inspired by his drive to be and do better everyday,’ she wrote.
By March, though, the supermodel was singing a different tune as Gigi and Zayn called it quits sharing his-and-hers tweets to confirm the split.
All was not as it seemed as Gigi and Zayn were spotted kissing in New York City weeks after they announced their break-up, but Malik was a no-show to her 23rd birthday party in April.
In October, he made an appearance on her Instagram stories when she shared a selfie and wrote ‘flyin home to my happy place.’
New year, new Gigi. The couple called it off again, with multiple sources telling Us Weekly that their relationship was ‘over for now.’
Another insider revealed the supermodel ‘tried hard to make it work,’ but he ‘has a lot of his own issues that she couldn’t help him get through.’
Cupid’s arrow struck in the right place and the couple confirmed their romance was flourishing yet again on Valentine’s Day.
Despite remaining out of the public eye due to various lockdowns from COVID-19, Gigi revealed she was pregnant on a virtual appearance of The Tonight Show starring Jimmy Fallon.
‘Obviously, we wish we could have announced it on our own terms,’ Hadid said. ‘We’re very excited and happy and grateful for everyone’s well wishes and support.’
Gigi delivered Khai during a home birth in Pennsylvania in mid-September with Zayn, her mother, sister Bella, a mid-wife and the mid-wife’s assistant also on hand to help out.
