Daily Mail Australia has contacted Jimmy’s management for comment.
Nadia and Jimmy married in February 2014 in a lavish ceremony on the Bellarine Peninsula.
They are parents to sons Aston, three, and Henley, 10 months.
The rumours of Jimmy’s new romance come after the former AFL star and Nadia were pictured having a tense reunion outside of Nadia’s mother’s house in Middle Park, Melbourne on Thursday.

The WAG looked furious during the encounter, glaring angrily at her estranged husband as he handed over the couple’s son Henley in a parking lot.
According to an onlooker, the pair ‘hardly interacted or spoke’ during the handover and Nadia ‘wasted no time’ getting Henley and running back inside.
The source said: ‘Nadia looked massively p**sed off. She was crossing her arms and was very stand-offish as soon as Jimmy arrived with the kid.’
The Bartels’ reunion – the first time they have been seen together since announcing their separation last week – was apparently ‘over in a minute’.

The mother-of-two left her shared home with Jimmy in mid-June, and moved in with her parents ‘permanently’ in July.
It’s believed the split has been a long time coming, with a neighbour saying the Bartels have rarely been seen together over the past year.
‘Last year we saw Nadia at cafés in the area frequently with her parents and kids, but Jimmy was never with her,’ the source claimed.
The footy WAG broke her silence earlier this week, telling the Herald Sun it had been a ‘difficult month’ for her following her separation.

‘Although I’m heartbroken, I don’t want to comment specifically on what’s been reported about Jim’s trip to the UK as I don’t think that is in anyone’s interests,’ Nadia told the publication in a statement.
‘My single focus now is to continue to protect, care and provide for my two beautiful boys as this is a personal matter.’
Friends of the Bartels previously alleged that Jimmy, since his split, is now in a ‘long-term relationship’ with London-based Australian socialite Lauren Mand.
The Bartels’ split was first announced on August 15, just days after fans noticed the couple were no longer following each other on Instagram.
