Daryl Hannah certainly knows how to make a splash! The actress shocked fans on Sept. 9 when she was spotted arm in arm with Neil Young while out in Westlake Village, Calif. The cozy outing came just six weeks after the iconic rocker filed for divorce from Pegi, his wife of 36 years — and Star can reveal that Daryl has been seeing Neil for at least a year!
“They’ve made no effort to hide it,” a source says.
Indeed, in April 2013, Daryl and the “Heart of Gold” singer were photographed together in Moab, Utah, attending a rally in support of Canyonlands National Park. They were spotted again five months later, sharing a blanket at another rally in Neil’s native Canada. “They share an interest in environmental activism,” a pal reveals. “That’s what planted the seeds for their eventual romance.”
But not everyone is on board with the new couple. Neil’s former bandmate, David Crosby, thinks that dating Daryl will end badly. “[Neil] is hanging out with somebody who’s purely a poisonous predator,” he’s said. “And that’s karma. He’s gonna get hurt. I’m always sad when I see love tossed in the gutter.”
Pegi, who shares son Ben and daughter Amber with Neil, is also quietly distancing herself from the rocker. The blonde beauty, who worked as a backup singer for her husband, recently pulled out of his beloved Farm Aid concert, a benefit for struggling family farms, without any official announcement.
