"She's an amazing woman," he told US publication Star magazine. "We know each other through yoga, and we've become close."
The rumour mill went into overdrive when Demi was spotted leaving a yoga class with her free spirited beau by her side.
Sources close to the brunette say she and Will have been dating for a month and that the mum of three "seems to be enjoying every moment with him."
As a devout follower of Kabbalah and yoga, the Ghost actress will have a lot in common with earthy Will, who makes his living diving for gems to sell on to jewellery companies and shares her interest in spirituality .
His presence in her life comes as Demi and her ex Ashton Kutcher – who is now dating Mila Kunis – head to court to thrash out a £190million divorce battle.
The couple ended their six year union in 2011, but remained married after disagreements about how they should split their considerable wealth.
According to US Weekly, Ashton earns $700,000 (£440,000) for his role in hit show Two And A Half Men and is yet to be accept an offer on how assets should be shared.
The decision will now be settled legally.
