THE SOPRANOS star James Gandolfini is already in trouble with his new girlfriend - just months after dumping his wife for her.

The heavyweight screen star left wife of three years MARCY in December (02) to move in with his assistant LORA SOMOZA, but, according to New York tabloid the NEW YORK DAILY NEWS, Gandolfini's love of partying with attractive women is causing friction with Somoza.

Daily News gossip columnists RUSH AND MOLLOY report, "Sources claim Somoza has found that Gandolfini shares Tony Soprano's weakness for the nightlife and a pretty face. They have some issues to deal with.

"She thinks he's been partying in town too hard."
