AceShowbiz - Paula Patton is head over heels for her new boyfriend Zachary Quittman and she doesn't care about what anyone has to say about their relationship. After news broke that she's dating the 37-year-old realtor, many news outlets pointed out that Zach is still a married man. But the 42-year-old actress refuses to let it ruin her happiness.
Appearing on Hot 97's "Ebro in the Morning", the mother of one said she realized that "that fame and celebrity is an evil monster...it can wreak havoc on people's lives." Responding to those "trolley" headlines about her new boyfriend, Paula said, "I don't give a f**k. I don't really care."
Paula, who has been making the press rounds this week to promote her new movie "Traffik", can't stop gushing about her beau on many occasions. "He's an amazing human and he just makes so happy," she said on "Live with Kelly and Ryan" as cameras panned to Zach, who has been tagging along on her "Traffik" press tour. "I'm in love. He's the first boyfriend I've had since I got divorced."
"When you know you know," she added about finding love again. "I'm 42 years old and I know now...I've done a lot of soul searching trust me." She also said about her new man, "He looks like a tough guy because he is, so he protects me."
Paula met Zach through their kids' sports activities. "It's kind of a suburban romance. He's got kids, I got a kid. It's one of those!" she told Extra. They have been dating for a month now. Zach reportedly has been living with the "Warcraft" star since they started seeing each other a month ago.
After reports emerged that Zach is not legally separated from his estranged wife, the real estate agent in Malibu explained to PEOPLE that he and his estranged wife have been separated "for awhile." He told the site, "We were totally separated before I moved on." He added, "Obviously there's three sides to every story and I'm not pointing the finger or saying anyone's wrong, but we were definitely separated before I moved on."
