Kid Rock and Tamara Mellon

Kid Rock, the man who launched a thousand police mugshots -- or, as thesmokinggun likes to call them: "impromptu headshots" -- is moving up in the world. From the trailer park to Park Avenue? Whereas once he was stripper catnip, a friend to the crystal meth tweaker and cousin-marrier alike, Kid Rock has moved on to greener, swishier pastures (with, we imagine, illegal immigrant gardeners to tend those fields). According to those intrepid Page Sixxies:

"KID Rock is attracting a higher class of groupie these days."

"The rocker, known as 'Son of Detroit,' has moved way beyond pinups like Pamela Anderson and Jaime Pressley and is now hooking up with British heiress and Jimmy Choo shoe designer Tamara Mellon.

"'He's obsessed with her,' said a source familiar with their relationship. Borrowing an Americanism, our British source shared, 'Dating is the term they're both using. They've been together for two months. They went to Elton John's wedding together.

"'They're very much an item,' the source added."

An item of what, though. Cheese? Then again, keeping in mind Mellon has had a stormy fling with the oily "Girls Gone Wild" opportunist Joe Francis, they may just be just ducky for each other. (Averted Gaze)
