Meet James Van Der Beek's New Girlfriend

After filing for divorce from his wife Heather McComb last month, James Van Der Beek took a big a step and introduced his new girlfriend to the world.

The actor and model Kelly Brook stepped into the media spotlight for the first time as a couple Wednesday night, when they attended a party for Summit on the Summit: Kilimanjaro, a January climb to raise awareness of the global clean water crisis.

According to, James and Kelly first refused to take photos together but, later, caved and let the paparazzi get a few shots. A source said the new twosome "didn’t leave each other's side all night."

The Dawson's Creek star and his wife split in June, after 6 years of marriage, but didn't file for divorce until late November.
