Pictured: Oak Schutz, a waitress who claims to be dating Sam Burgess
An American waitress says she has been swept off her feet by former NRL star Sam Burgess and claims the pair are officially dating.
Oak Schuetz, a 27-year-old from Seattle living in Sydney's east, was spotted cuddling up to the recently retired South Sydney Rabbitohs player outside her home on Sunday morning.
She claimed she spent the weekend at his Coogee penthouse and told The Daily Telegraph the pair are 'dating for sure' just four days after they first met.
Ms Schuetz said she had no idea who Burgess was when he approached her in The Establishment bar in the CBD on Thursday.
She said Burgess explained he was going through the process of getting divorced.
'I know he's getting divorced and going through a tough time but, like my motto goes, ''why not?'',' she said.
She has the phrase tattooed on her inner arm and often flaunts it on social media - where she vows to follow the mantra.

Ms Schuetz said the pair left the city bar separately, at Burgess' request.
'We hit it off and he said we should leave to go back to his, but separately, he didn't want people to see us leave together. His apartment is lovely and so is he,' she said.
Ms Schuetz said after she learned he was famous, she searched the mother of his two children online.
'I googled his wife Phoebe, she's so pretty. Prettier than me... I'm just going to go for it and see what happens,' she
