Insider says Lathan and French are 'getting to know each other'

Sanaa Lathan might have found her 'perfect guy' in rapper French Montana.

A source tells PEOPLE the pair have been casually dating since meeting through a mutual friend, Sean "Diddy" Combs.

"They met through Diddy and have been hanging out," the insider said. "They're just getting to know each other and are having a good time."

Rumors of a love connection between Lathan and French have been circulating ever since the pair showed up on Instagram together. Combs posted a video of the two getting rather close, but later deleted it, leaving many to wonder about the nature of Lathan and French's relationship.

On Monday, Lathan visited Big Boy's Neighborhood radio show to promote her new film, The Perfect Guy, but didn't leave before [somewhat] addressing the dating rumors.

"You know, I don't talk about my personal life," she said. "Let's put it this way, I am dating."
