The picture Dominic West’s wife will be delighted to see: Lily James walks hand in hand with rock star boyfriend Michael Shuman on a romantic break

  • The sight will delight wife of Dominic West who was pictured with her in 2020 
  • West and wife Catherine FitzGerald later insisted all was well with their marriage 

Hand clasped in his as she takes the evening air with her US boyfriend, a clearly smitten Lily James is a sight to gladden her friends and fans.

Few will be quite so cheered though as Dominic West’s wife Catherine – who faced the humiliation of her husband being photographed in a clinch with the actress last year after the pair finished filming in Rome.

Now, Downton Abbey star Lily has been spotted enjoying a romantic break with rock star lover Michael Shuman, 35, at the luxury L’Horizon Hotel and Spa in Palm Springs, California, and out enjoying the sun-drenched city’s street life under the palm trees.

The hotel was a favourite celebrity destination in the 1950s and 1960s, attracting the biggest names in Hollywood’s golden era, such as Marilyn Monroe and Betty Grable.

And Lily, 32, looked every inch the modern screen star on her evening stroll, wearing a denim and suede jacket, a Burberry crossbody bag over a camisole, high-waist buttoned trousers and £750 Dior kitten heel slingbacks.

An onlooker said: ‘They looked very happy and relaxed, smiling at one another and looking very much in love.’

The mini-break was a chance for Lily to take time out before work on her new TV mini-series, Pam & Tommy, being filmed two hours’ drive away in Los Angeles, in which she plays Baywatch star Pamela Anderson.

Lily and Michael, bass player with rock group Queens Of The Stone Age, were first spotted together in February when she was filming romcom What’s Love Got To Do With It in the UK.

Last autumn, photographs emerged of Ms James and Mr West, 51, together in Rome, in a clinch over lunch and sharing a scooter ride around the city.

West and his landscape designer wife Catherine FitzGerald, 49, later insisted that all was well with their ten-year marriage.
