Have You Seen Brother Al’s New Lady? She’s 23 Years His Junior
Politics Nation host Al Sharpton has been hit by cupid’s arrow. There’s a new lady in the 58-year-old civil rights activist’s life and guess what? She’s 23 years his junior. According to the NY Daily News, Sharpton is exclusively dating 35-year-old Aisha Shaw, a personal stylist from Westchester.
When asked by the NYDN during Monday night’s New York County Democratic Committee awards ceremony to “redefine” her relationship with Sharpton, Shaw responded:
“I’m his girlfriend.”
Just before Al reportedly intervened and whisked her away in an attempt to get her as far away from the reporter as possible, she also revealed that she works as a “personal stylist,” but according to Shaw’s LinkedIn page, she primarily works in financial services as a personal banker at Wells Fargo.
Monday night wasn’t the first time that Al has shown up to an event with Shaw on his arm, though. They were also reportedly spotted together at President Obama’s holiday party in December, the White House Correspondents Dinner in April and a handful of black-tie events. They were also spotted cozying up a couple of weeks ago at the Essence Festival.
Although Shaw may be ready to go public with the relationship, Rev. Sharpton seems a bit more apprehensive. He declined to answer any questions relating to how long the two have been an item. Some speculate that this is his most serious relationship since he split from his ex-wife, Kathy, back in 2004.
