The pair were introduced at the beginning of the year by a high-ranking Beverly Hills PD police officer with whom Mel is personal friends sources claim.

Mel and Ryan are now secretly trying to handle the situation so they can stay together.

A source told DailyMail.com: 'They are totally smitten with each other, Ryan has been staying over at Mel's a lot while telling Morgan he's had work commitments.

'Mel has even introduced him to her children and he's taken them shopping. Mel is loving the attention Ryan is giving her, it's a big confidence booster.'

DailyMail.com also understands Mel has let her young lover borrow a blue Ferrari California grand touring sports car she is leasing.

The source added: 'Ryan might be telling Morgan something different, but he has no intention of going back to her. He's told Mel he doesn't love his wife and wants out.

'Once the dust has settled he plans to end the marriage and go on a vacation with Mel, they've got it all planned out.'

The source even claims Mel purposely flirted and kissed a 'mystery man' at an MTV VMAs after party in LA to distract the media from her affair with Ryan - knowing members of the press would be watching.

The man, later revealed as Armenian celebrity hairstylist Gary Madatyan - a close friend of Mel's - was caught on camera kissing Mel at Tao in LA.

Mel and Gary partied alongside the star's fellow America's Got Talent host Heidi Klum and her boyfriend Vito Schnabel.

Ryan's alleged infidelity comes less than one year after he and Morgan tied the knot surrounded by family and friends at Serendipity Gardens in Oak Glen, Southern California on September 23, 2016 in a lavish ceremony
