Tracee Ellis Ross and rumored boyfriend Bu Thiam

If we saw this going on, we might have to ask our daughter what the hell she was thinking too.

Apparently, 38-year-old Tracee Ellis Ross has been getting her low-key cougar on with Akon‘s little brother Bu Thiam since the middle of the summer. The two have been spotted a couple of times at kinds of events where most of us would not expect to see Tracee.

And Miss Diana Ross isn’t with it at all!

Tracee, who starred in the hit series “Girlfriends,” is dating Def Jam Recordings executive Bu Thiam, 32. He’s the younger brother of R&B superstar Akon – a confessed polygamist with three wives.

“Diana is livid that Tracee is getting so serious with Bu,” a source close to the Motown legend told The ENQUIRER.

“Diana wants the best for all her children, and marrying into a family that practices polygamy was never in the cards for her kids.”

Music exec Bu’s roots are in Senegal, which reportedly has the highest polygamy rate in Africa.

His older brother Akon told a reporter: “I’m a polygamist. I will have as many wives as I can afford to have. All Africans believe in it. My dad has four wives.”

Never-married Tracee – whose father is Diana’s first husband, music busi­ness manager Robert Ellis Silberstein – has been seen hand-in-hand with Bu at vari­ous functions, and friends say the romance is heating up.

“Tracee has reassured her mom and the rest of the family that she and Bu aren’t mak­ing any wedding plans,” the source divulged.

According to the same article, Tracee does believe, however, that if she did decide to marry Bu, he would forsake all others. In other words, that man is chopping it down so good she’s become delusional.

At least now we can understand the attraction…
