Actress Gabby "Precious" Sidibe finally has a boyfriend - and she showed him off to the world yesterday. Gabby posted a special Happy Birthday message to her new bae on social media. Gabby referred to her new man as her "Tom Cruise."
Gabby is the latest Black female celebrity to choose to date a White guy. Recently Serena Williams and Meghan Markle were married to very successful White men. Other actresses including Tika Sumpter and Halle Berry have recently had CHILDREN by White Guys.
'Tom Cruise' is the first official "boyfriend" that we've seen of Gabby. She often talks about dating, but she rarely allows fans to see the men that she's going out with.
Congrats to Gabby for finding LOVE.
Gabby talked last year about how she was DESPERATE for a man. And after her drastic weight loss it seems like she has a new outlook on life. Back then here's what People Magazine reported:
“For the most part, I’m living my best life, but I would love to be dating,” the 33-year-old tells the magazine. “I am ready to receive a gentleman caller!”
Since moving to Los Angeles last spring, the Oscar-nominated actress took a break from dating, but now she’s ready to get back in the game.
“I looked around a good five months ago, and I realized: Every single person that I hang out with is either a gay man or a woman, and neither one of those people are gonna f— me. [Laughs] Or marry me. That’s the ultimate goal,” she says.
“I [didn’t] see straight men, so I [wasn’t] opening myself up to that because this is how the universe works for me: The second I decide something, it just happens,” she continues. “I’ve been meetings so many straight men who are like my friends, and now I’m in the mood where I’m like, ‘All right, we’ve got to be more than friends.’ I want the universe to hear that! I want to be in a relationship, and I feel like I’d be doing myself a disservice if I don’t, so I do.”
