Sir Elton John's adoption bid might be refused because he is gay.
The pop legend and his husband David Furnish are desperate to give a home to 14-month-old boy Lev - who they met at an orphanage at the weekend - but could be refused because it is illegal for homosexual couples to adopt in the Ukraine.
Hayden Panettiere is reportedly dating British TV presenter Steve Jones. The "Heroes" actress enjoyed an intimate dinner with the 32-year-old lothario at top London restaurant Nobu Berkeley on Tuesday night before the pair headed to a nearby house party.
An onlooker said: "There were a group of them at the restaurant, including Sir Elton John's husband David Furnish, but Hayden and Steve only had eyes for each other. They seemed smitten."
