Kate Beckinsale’s ex-husband Len Wiseman has moved in with his longtime girlfriend CJ Franco, 32 – eight years after the pair began dating when he split from his 49-year-old actress wife. 

‘CJ and Len have recently taken their relationship to the next level by moving in together,’ a source close to the couple says. 

Len and CJ’s relationship began amid his tumultuous separation from Kate, whom he married in 2004 and spilt from in 2015. 

However any drama that may have clouded the earlier days of their romance was far from the couple’s mind this past weekend when they stepped out together at a charity comedy show, Models of Comedy, looking every inch the blissful, cohabitating couple. 

CJ, who performed in the stand-up show, and director and filmmaker Len appeared on the red carpet ahead of the event at Hotel Ziggy, and were, according to one guest, ‘incredibly flirtatious’ throughout the evening.  

Going strong: CJ Franco, 32 , and Len Wiseman, 50 (at Models of Comedy on June 17) decided to move in together after eight years of dating, DailyMail.com has exclusively learned 

Happy together: CJ and Len (in a photo she shared on her Instagram) were ‘incredibly flirtatious’ at the after party for the Models of Comedy show at Hotel Ziggy on Saturday 

Strike a pose: CJ (in a sexy snap posted to her social media) left Models of Comedy after party ‘hand-in-hand’ with Len, presumably heading back to the home they now share

Irreplaceable: Len has been dating since he split with ex-wife Kate Beckinsale, 49 (pictured together in 2015). Len and Kate were together for 11 years

Replaced: Len and CJ (photographed leaving Nice Guy in 2015) were seen together several times when the word got out that his marriage to Kate was over

During her 15-minute monologue, ‘Len sat front and center and did not take his eyes off of CJ. You could see just how very smitten he was,’ the eyewitness added. 

The two lovebirds attended the after party together, where they continued to pack on the PDA as they chatted with friends, including Christine Peake – former British model turned comedian and Hollywood publicist, who hosted and performed in Models of Comedy.

The eyewitness told DailyMail.com that Christine and CJ ‘stole the show’ and ‘were clearly the crowd’s favorites. ‘CJ had the audience rolling with a routine that included supportive jokes about her father, who is gay,’ the source said. 

‘She told the audience that she was heading to Las Vegas soon for her dad’s wedding – we assume with Len.’ 

The eyewitness said that following the event, which was produced by Hunter Hart and raised raised thousands of dollars for the Best Buddies charity, CJ left with Len ‘hand in hand.’  

Len’s relationship with CJ ignited following his split with Kate, who he married in 2004 after falling in love on the set of 2003’s Underworld.

Kate and Len split in 2015 after 11 years of marriage. Rumors circulated that their marriage was troubled when Len was photographed leaving The Sunset Marquis Bar with CJ, who was 25 at the time. 

One month after his split from Kate went public, Len was photographed leaving hot spot The Nice Guy with CJ two nights in a row. Kate was filming Underworld 5 in Prague at the time. 

Moved on: Kate has more than moved on since her split from Len. One year after their divorce was finalized, she dated Pete Davidson (photographed at New York Rangers game in 2020) 

CJ was all smiles with former British model Christine Peake – who hosted and performed in Models of Comedy on Saturday at the event, which raised money for Best Buddies 

Russian model Eugenia Kuzmina, 35 (pictured on red carpet at Models of Comedy) delivered a hilariously funny monologue and was supported by her Miramax CEO husband Bill Block 

Kate and Len’s divorce was finalized in November 2019. While Kate and Len did not have kids together, she has a daughter Lily with her ex, Martin Sheen – who she was with when she met Len on the set of Underworld. 

Kate has since been linked to the likes of Pete Davidson and Jack Whitehall, while Len has remained devoted to CJ. 

CJ – also an actress – just wrapped filming a new reality show called The Goat. Meanwhile, Len just finished directing the first John Wick spinoff, Ballerina.

Their busy schedules likely contributed in their choice to move in together. However, they do not work together, as Len did with Kate. 

In 2012, during an interview with Parade Magazine, Kate gushed about the joys of working with her then husband from time to time.

She explained: ‘The first time we met each other was when we were filming Underworld, and then we worked together again after we’d been married a short while, and now we’ve been married seven years, so I’ve had quite a few different experiences along the way.

‘It’s different each time. We love it. I think one of the things we like least about our jobs is that it can force separation from each other.’

The Lineup at the weekend’s event also included Dominika van Santen, Thash Mose, supermodel and actress Charlotte McKinney, Russian model Eugenia Kuzmina, who had her CEO of Miramax husband Bill Block in the audience.

Models Dana Tyne, Rochelle Brodin, author Heidi Shultz and Bachelor star Elise Mosca were also in the audience. The show was said to be a ‘fantastic hit,’ the eyewitness said, adding that ‘it exceeded everyone’s expectations.
