He's the hunky young *N Sync heart-throb, she's the 29-year-old star of hit US TV series Charmed and now Justin Timberlake and Alyssa Milano look one step closer to being one of the celebrity world's hottest young couples. The actress stepped out on Thursday night for the LA launch party of Justin's solo debut album, Justified, setting tongues wagging that their "casual" relationship is hotting up.

Last week, a publicist for Justin denied rumours that the two planned to tie the knot just months after they began seeing each other. "Alyssa is a friend but I am not going to talk about her," said the 21-year-old singer in a recent interview. "I want to get to know her before the whole world tries to get to know us."

The Who's The Boss? star has been similarly tight-lipped about the budding romance, which reportedly began in June. "We have gone out on a few casual dates but I'm not dating him exclusively," she said. "I consider him to be a dear friend. He is a bright soul."

Though Justin looks to be moving on from his break-up with pop star Britney Spears he says he's dating no-one but Alyssa as he's "always been a one-woman man" he insists that his soon-to-be released album is "my new girlfriend". "It's the biggest priority in my life and I poured my heart and soul into it."

Other stars at the Justified record release included American Pie stars Shannon Elizabeth and Tara Reid. The CD is set to hit US store shelves on November 5.


"I want to get to know Alyssa before the whole world tries to get to know us," says Justin, who introduced his debut album Justified in Los Angeles on Friday
