The Metallica frontman previously grabbed the headlines after filing for a divorce from his partner of twenty-five years, Francesca Tomasi. The bitter decision came as a shock to many since the pair seemed to thrive in their relationship, with Hetfield taking every chance he got to praise his wife one way or the other.
The singer was spotted with a mystery girlfriend quite recently, posing happily for different snaps of pictures in different settings. A Metallica fan shared the new couple’s pictures, showing the pair kissing on a beach and hugging intimately.

The 400-page coffee table book, Messengers: The Guitars of James Hetfield, details the frontman’s entire collection of over 40-plus guitars, revealing “the story and significance of each within his life and career.”
According to the book’s description, “Hetfield shares the emotional and technical elements of the chosen tools that have shaped his singular musical journey, including exotic instruments, vintage Gibsons, and custom one-offs. He also reveals many studio secrets, including the key amplifiers and gear that sculpt his tone and create his sound.”
The description goes on to add: “Each featured guitar is accompanied by lush museum-quality portraits by acclaimed photographer Scott Williamson, exhibiting intimate details one can only see if holding it in their own hands, alongside Hetfield’s deeply personal reminiscence.”
