Reverend Al Sharpton has been spotted around town with a new young woman, and according to reports they’re dating!
The 58-year-old civil rights activist attended the New York County Democratic Committee Award Ceremony this week with 35-year-old Aisha McShaw on his arm. When asked their relationship status, the personal stylist and New York native said, “I’m his girlfriend.”
This is the first public relationship for Sharpton, who is still legally married to wife Kathy Jordan, since their separation in 2004 after 24 years of marriage.
The New York Daily News reports that Sharpton and McShaw have been attending elegant events together for months, although the Baptist minister refuses to reveal exactly how long they’ve been dating.
“Don’t I have a right to date when my marriage has been over for a decade,” he asked.
Clearly, there’s no shame in his game!
Sharpton is currently pushing for civil rights charges to be filed against George Zimmerman for the shooting death of Trayvon Martin. He also has a new book, The Rejected Stone, scheduled to hit stores in October.
