On the heels of her successful Patti Pies, it looks like Patti Labelle really can have it all!
Apparently she has a new boo too. But he’s not just anyone. Word is that he is her 41-year-old drummer, Eric Seats. She’s 71.
One insider confirmed the news with Daily Mail Tuesday and said, “She tried to keep quiet, but everyone around her has figured things out now. She’s completely smitten with him and they spend so much time together.”
He has worked with Patti for several years, but the source also said her son, who is just one year older than Seats, is not a fan of their romance.
“He saw how hard she took her last breakup with the much younger man she was seeing and just doesn’t want to see hsis mom hurt again.”
Still, Patti and Seats are going strong and he even moved to Philadelphia with her.
“Everything they do now, they do it together. She hasn’t seemed this happy in years. Apparently those who know him, say he’s always dated older women.”
