Mike Hancock is also alleged to have bought clothes and perfume for the single mother, who has since complained about his advances.
Portsmouth City Council, where Mr Hancock is also a councillor, said today it had decided to refer a complaint against him for formal investigation to see if he broke their code of conduct.
The woman’s legal team claim Hancock sent texts to the woman, one of which is believed to have said: 'Thinking as always of u and missing u. big kiss xxx.'
Another allegedly states: 'I miss you sexy. xxx.'
