Forest Whitaker was reportedly on a late dinner date with a dark-haired woman this weekend. It was only in December when he divorced his wife of 22 years.


Forest Whitaker didn’t take too long to bounce back from his divorce. The actor was spotted on a date with a mystery woman recently sparking rumors of a possible new romance.


Whitaker ended his 22-year marriage when he filed for divorce from his wife, Keisha Nash in December. The 54-year old met Nash on the set of the 1994 film “Blown Away.” They played lovers in the film and soon channeled their on-screen chemistry off-screen. They were married two years later and had two daughters together.


The couple reportedly separated amicably but the reason that led to their split was undisclosed. Their divorce petition cited irreconcilable differences and because their children are both adults, there were no custody issues. Nash demanded for spousal support but Whitaker is requesting the court to deny this.


Now single, the actor seems to be making the most of his new status since it didn’t take long for him to get back on the dating game.

On Saturday, the “Black Panther” star was seen dining with a dark-haired woman at the Latin American restaurant La Central in Chelsea. It was a late dinner, both arrived at around 10:30 pm according to a source for Page Six. They were spotted sitting by the back window of the eatery. The woman was described as in her 30’s and while she was alone with Whitaker, the pair were “not visibly intimate,” according to the source.


Whitaker is an Academy Award winner for his role as Ugandan dictator Idi Amin in the 2006 film “The Last King of Scotland.” He is also best known for his participation in the films, “Bird,” “The Crying Game,” “Platoon,” “The Great Debaters,” “The Butler,” and “Arrival.” and for directing "Waiting to Exhale", among others. More recently, he appeared in “Rogue One: A Star Wars Story,” and “Black Panther.” His new film, “Finding Steve McQueen” is currently in post-production. Meanwhile, he maintains a recurring role in the television show, “Empire.”
