Bindi Ir­win used the an­nual Los An­ge­les din­ner hon­our­ing her late dad Steve to re­con­nect with an old celebrity friend – and her boyfriend Chan­dler Pow­ell was not amused. Bindi, 19, was seen chat­ting up a storm with Modern Fam­ily star Nolan Gould, also 19, at the glit­ter­ing Steve Ir­win Gala Din­ner in Bev­erly Hills, af­ter they struck up a friend­ship at the same din­ner the year be­fore. “Chan­dler heard how Nolan de­scribed meet­ing Bindi last year as a ‘def­i­nite high­light’, which irked him,” says a source. “And he didn’t like how Nolan cosied up to Bindi both this year and last year for the cam­eras.

“Chan­dler knows Amer­i­can kids grew up lov­ing Bindi as a child star, and now she’s a gor­geous young woman. Truth be told he’s sus­pi­cious of any man get­ting too close to her.”

Ac­cord­ing to our in­sider, 21-year-old Chan­dler had even hinted Nolan – who plays Luke Dun­phy on the hit show – shouldn’t be in­vited this year.

“He couldn’t come up with a de­cent rea­son why, though, and that’s when Bindi re­alised he was jeal­ous of their friend­ship,” says a source. “She thinks it’s funny, be­cause she only has eyes for Chan­dler at all times.

“She couldn’t be more in love with him.”

Nolan said meet­ing Bindi was “a def­i­nite high­light” – and Chan­dler (in­set) isn’t happy.
