"She's a model and it's a new relationship," a source close to the Black Cards frontman tells me. "They're taking things slowly but he obviously thinks highly of her to introduce her to Bronx."

The Fall Out Boy also took his new girl on a dinner date at Katsuya Hollywood Monday night, where he ordered the most expensive bottle of sake on the menu for them to split. Seems like someone is in a celebratory mood!

It's nice to see he's moving on, right?

Pete's rep had no comment on the new romance, but a source says he's in a "really good place."

Indeed. Yesterday, he Tweeted: "You always get to make the decision to be a bright light in someone's life or enhancing their own darkness. Don't complain when you pick wrong."
