The former AFL WAG, who split from ex-husband Jimmy Bartel in 2019, appeared comfortable as she chatted with the gentleman after running errands in the city.

She wore her caramel locks in a gentle tousled style.

Before her rendezvous, Nadia was spotted filling up her car at the local gas station.

Nadia – who shares children Aston and Henley with sports star Jimmy – has kept her romantic life private since her divorce, though she was previously linked to Nathan Brodie in 2020.

It’s not known if the pair are still together.

Nadia’s outing coincided with media outlets reporting she’d been charged with allegedly driving while her licence was suspended and failing to update her address.

She was intercepted by Prahran Highway Patrol officers on Dandenong Road in the Melbourne suburb of Windsor at about 12.30pm on August 25, 2021.

This was just a week before she was filmed snorting white powder from a Kmart plate at an illegal party during Melbourne’s lockdown.

She will appear at Melbourne Magistrates’ Court on March 24 and could face up to four months’ jail or a fine of up to $4,500 for a first offence.

Nadia said she ‘not aware’ her driving licence had been suspended.

‘In August I was pulled over by the police who advised me that I was driving on a suspended licence,’ she told the Herald Sun on Tuesday.

She explained the suspension was because she’d exceeded her demerit point balance.

‘I was not aware of the suspension as communication had been sent to my previous residential address which I didn’t receive,’ she added.

‘I would never have driven had I been aware of the suspension and my residential details have now been updated.’

It comes after the now-infamous video of Nadia breaching Covid restrictions was posted to social media by her friend Ellie Pearson during Victoria’s sixth Covid-19 lockdown.

In the video, recorded on September 1, Nadia was surrounded by other women who laughed as she leaned over a cheap plate and snorted a line of white powder.

Nadia, Ellie and two other women were fined $5,452 each for breaching lockdown rules.

After the incident was widely reported, Nadia lost well-paid sponsorship deals.

At the time, she said she was ’embarrassed and remorseful’.

‘I have let you all down by my actions,’ she said. ‘I take full responsibility and I am committed to taking all necessary steps to ensure I make better choices in future.’

Nadia did not face criminal charges over the white-powder incident.
