New York’s hottest sports hero has been spotted dining out with the stunning songbird in recent weeks, and on Monday night, the pair shared dinner at the New York steakhouse STK with a group of 15, including fellow Knick Carmelo Anthony and his wife, LaLa Vazquez.
Sources said Stoudemire, 28, and Ciara, 25, have also been seen together alone at the restaurant and at other Meatpacking hot spots.
"Ciara is best friends with LaLa and has been attending Knicks games with her, including Monday’s game. Through Melo and LaLa, her friendship with Amar’e has developed. They have been seen out together on numerous occasions," the source said.
Five-time Grammy nominee Ciara has released three albums and had hits including "Love Sex Magic" with Justin Timberlake.
She previously dated Bow Wow and has been linked to 50 Cent. A rumor linking her to Miami Heat star LeBron James in January was denied.
