Self-proclaimed D-Lister Kathy Griffin has been getting it in all over Hollyweird with a New Black Kid On The Block whose bare chest and body of work are both designed to make women resent their men. Can you guess who it is?
Yes. That is the “Old Spice Guy” Isaiah Mustafa.
A source tells me that Griffin and Mustafa first met months ago. Maybe it was back in August at the Creative Arts Emmys, where they did a joint interview on the red carpet with our own Kristin Dos Santos? Not longer after that, Griffin tweeted a pic of the two of them with the post reading, “A gift from me 2 u. Here I am with the super hot Old Spice Guy. Feel free to photoshop ur face over mine.”
Our source says they started spending more time together within the last month or so. The source wouldn’t describe the relationship as “romantic,” but says, “They’re getting to know each other.”
Mustafa was not only spotted at Griffin’s Trevor Project benefit concert in L.A. in December, but the two were also together earlier this month at Cher’s final performance of her Las Vegas show. I actually saw them at the Sin City airport the following morning hopping on a flight back to L.A.
Mustafa was also with Griffin at the Grammys last week. Then last night, they were spotted sitting together and chatting at the Costume Designer Guild Awards at the Beverly Hilton Hotel.
His rep says they’re just friends who “have a blast hanging out” which is pretty much Hollyweird code for “he’s blowing her back out every chance he gets.”
Now sistahs, before you get mad at Isaiah and his cougar-bait-swirl-steez, understand this one isn’t one of ours at all.
This is the last chick Isaiah was linked to:
