AceShowbiz - Tyrese Gibson has apparently moved on from his failed marriage. Just a little over two months after announcing his split from his wife of four years, Samantha Lee, the rapper-turned-actor has gone public with his new relationship.
The Roman Pearce depicter in the "Fast & Furious" films debuted his new girlfriend Zelie Timothy on social media over the weekend. Both the 42-year-old actor and the 25-year-old model posted a video of them getting booed up inside a club.
In the clip, Tyrese was seen smoking on some hookah while Zelie, who was sitting next to him and wrapping her hand around him, leaned in to give him a kiss on the cheek. She later shared a picture of them holding hands in the car.
The new couple was also spotted enjoying the All-Star Weekend festivities in Atlanta.
A source close to Tyrese confirmed to The Shade Room that the twosome are indeed dating. The source stated that the two really enjoy each other's company and their connection has come at a good time. Noting that Zelie is not a rebound despite his ongoing divorce, the source claimed Tyrese has made the effort of trying to save his marriage with his estranged wife Samantha, but it has become clear that chapter has come to an end and he's waiting for his divorce to be finalized.
Tyrese announced he and Samantha called it quits via a statement he posted on Instagram back in December. Hinting that he didn't want the divorce, he later vowed to win her back as he left a comment on Tammy Franklin's January post, in which she celebrated her anniversary with her husband, gospel singer Kirk Franklin.
"Happy Happy Happy Anniversary!!!!!! Magic Magic and more magic.....," Tyrese wrote in his comment, before directing it towards his ex. "Dear Samantha this was supposed to be us.... remember the franklins was our marriage GOALS!!!!!!!!!!!! Smiling smiling....... I'm gonna get her back watch me! [ I think ]."
