“Scorpion” co-star Elyes Gabel prior to spending time with David and
said getting over the breakup hasn’t been easy, especially since they’re an
“I’m crazy about him, and we have a really great
working relationship. It’s definitely not the easiest thing to get over someone
you see every day! It’s still an adjustment. But I haven’t had anything super
And while Katharine is sticking to her story that she and
David are “just friends,” some of her outings with the 68-year-old
music mogul might suggest otherwise. The pair hit the Los Angeles Lakers game
on Sunday and looked pretty darn cozy. Check it out in the video below!
