LUNCHING LARA BINGLE'S IN THE IVY LEAGUE

It has been a whole week since Justin Hemmes was spotted cavorting anywhere with a topless woman and we were starting to think the hotelier was losing his mojo.

And then we received word that Hemmes has been seeing rather a bit of Lara Bingle lately.

Hemmes confirmed he and the model did have lunch together at his Ivy pub last week but he denies it was more than a meal.

"There's nothing going on," he said, laughing at being busted again. "Seriously, nothing."

Having lost her driver's licence for speeding at Christmas, Bingle has become a common sight riding her bike through Sydney as she waits until her suspension lapses in May.

With a patchy driving history to her credit - there was the time she crashed her Mini into a neighbour's car while swerving to miss a dog, then there was the time her former fiancé Michael Clarke had to push her off The Kingsway at Cronulla after she ran out of petrol, and who could forget the time her $300,000 Aston Martin was towed from a no parking zone in the city - one might think Bingle would follow the law when it comes to bike legislation.

But no, a helmet was not part of her outfit yesterday.
