Is Sherri Shepherd Dating Johnny Gill?

September 5, 2014  |  



Seems like Sherri Shepherd will not slow down. Though she’s going through a very public and presumably painful divorce, the former “The View” cohost won’t be held down. She’s continuing to live every ounce of her life.

The Daily Mail is reporting that Shepherd is currently dating R&B singer Johnny Gill.

An alleged friend of Sherri’s told the website that Sherri and Johnny met each other on June 25 when New Edition performed on “The View” and have been seeing each other ever since.

A source at the show said, “Sherri is a big New Edition fan and was excited to have them at the show. But she and Johnny really connected and exchanged personal contact information.”

Reportedly, the two began a long distance relationship using FaceTime to communicate frequently.

And then Johnny took it up a notch, flying Shepherd out to see New Edition in Houston, Virginia Beach and Los Angeles.

Around this time, Sherri tweeted: “Sometimes you need friends who make you laugh…Thank you @RealJohnnyGill for a crazy night!…”

To which Johnny responded: “You’re the best, I had so much fun hanging with you, love love love you!!!”

And apparently, Johnny was in New York when Sherri filmed her last episode of “The View” but stayed off camera because they want to keep their relationship low key for now.

The source said that Sherri told her friends that they’re taking things slowly, saying she enjoys Gill’s companionship but isn’t interested in rushing into anything. And then: “She enjoys having a man who can actually take care of her. [Shade to Lamar.] He’s financially secure and that’s very appealing to her.”

Johnny has never been married but has an eight year old son with his former fiancé.

And you know the madness and mayhem Sherri has gone and is currently going through.

Yesterday, we reported about her ex husband, Lamar Sally rejecting the divorce settlement and child supper offer. And unfortunately the story is only getting worse.

Allegedly, Lamar Sally is threatening to release Sherri’s nude photos if she doesn’t offer to meet his terms.

The Hollywood Gossip is reporting that Lamar is in possession of dozens of nude photos from his ex wife. And sources say Lamar is threatening to release the photos if Sherri doesn’t agree to pay $10,000 a month in child support.

Another source says, Sherri deeply regrets sending the photos to Lamar and did so only because they lived in different cities for much of their relationship.


It’s like a soap opera.

You have to take these unnamed source stories with a grain of salt. And while I’m a bit hesitant to believe that Shepherd and Johnny Gill are dating, it doesn’t seem like too much of a stretch, given his track record, that Lamar Sally would be threatening to release his wife’s nude photos. Dude is grimy.

Anyway, what you do think about Johnny and Sherri as a couple? And if your ex husband were threatening to release your nudes, would you pay up or keep your money and let whatever happens happen?
