‘It wasn’t long before he was helping her heal her broken heart,’ the source revealed.

‘He made her feel at ease and she loved that he had such a vast experience working in the music business.

Seats packed up and moved across the country just to be with her. He left Los Angeles a year ago for Philadelphia – where LaBelle is based.

‘Patti was so happy he moved to Philly with her. She loves having him with her all the time. She even has a big portrait of the two of them up on her wall in her bedroom,’ told the source.

Eric has several pictures of himself and his “boss” looking coupled up.
