Is Liam Neeson entertaining two girlfriends on either side of the Atlantic? Sources point to yes, that he has been seeing 28 year old Katy Schell in New York, while still dating London-based girlfriend, Freya St. Johnston.

The New York Post writes that Neeson first met Schell in March of this year at the premiere of his film ‘Wrath of the Titans.’

“He’d seen her on the red carpet and thought she was beautiful,” says a source, “and he asked to meet her.”

“She met his family,” a source says. “She would stay at his apartment and met Vanessa Redgrave [the mother of Neeson’s late wife, Natasha Richardson] when she came over.”

Reportedly, Neeson introduced Schell to his son on two occasions in New York as well.

However, the same month that Neeson met Schell and reportedly asked her out, he was seen back in London with St. Johnson, and then on vacation with her in St. Tropez.

Now, reps for Neeson are saying that the ‘Schindler’s List’ actor has “never heard of Schell.”

He and Schell reportedly broke it off, with Neeson saying to Schell that he was “‘back with an old friend from London,’ who was staying with him all summer at his house in Millbrook,” a source told Page Six.

“The funny part is that he invited Katy [to his country home] numerous times over the summer, but she never made the trip.”

A source close to Schell said, “Liam was really sweet and respectful about the breakup. Overall, Katy has nothing but nice things to say about him.”

However, an actor close to Neeson said, “They never dated. Maybe they hung out once or twice, but that’s it.”
