Days before their binge session, Gabby celebrated her cat's third birthday with a special meal topped with a candle. After sharing pictures from the party, she

It remains to be seen which projects that cast of "Empire" will take on after the show ends. For now, Gabby has her cat and is enjoying her new relationship with Brandon.

According to Daily Mail, the couple has been dating since 2019, and Brandon made their relationship Instagram official when he shared rare pictures together in a tribute for their 8-month-anniversary.
