What Chilli wants … is Wayne Brady? The long suffering single singer has apparently found love with comedian Wayne Brady and the pair aren’t ashamed to show it.
According to US Weekly reports:
No scrub here! Wayne Brady is dating TLC’s Chilli, Us Weekly can exclusively confirm. The relationship is fairly new, but the couple has already shown their affection for each other in public. On Friday night, the two were spotted holding hands while the comedian supported the singer during a TLC concert at the MGM in Las Vegas.
“They were so cute, stopping to take pictures with fans,” an eyewitness tells Us of the night out. “He kept her close to him the whole time.” Mid-show, Chilli (real name: Rozonda Thomas) also gave the Emmy-award winning star a shout-out during the set and brought him on stage. (Chilli and Lil Mama performed for a private party MGM threw for their employees.)
“It has only been two weeks but they really like each other,” a source adds. “They’ve been friends for years but there has always been this flirtation. Both of them had a hard time being single, so they love dating a friend and someone in the business. They make a really great couple.”
As it turns out, the pair have given love a shot before. Brady, 41, and Chilli, 42, dated briefly a year ago but put things on hold after only a few weeks due to their busy schedules.
The Whose Line Is It Anyway star — who’s also a regular guest star on How I Met Your Mother — was previously married to Diana Lasso for two years until their split in 1995. He also was married to Mandie Taketa from 1999 to 2008, with whom he has 10-year-old daughter Maile. Chilli split from Usher in 2004 after three years together.
We hope this works out for Chilli, she hasn’t had the best luck with love.
