It looks like Tyrese Gibson has found a new love. The "Fast & Furious" star couldn't keep his hands off his new lady while attending the NBA All-Star game in Atlanta.

It's been less than three months since American actor Tyrese Gibson and Samantha Lee announced their divorce, but the singer and actor has already moved on and is not afraid to show it.

The "Fast & Furious" actor took to Instagram to flaunt his new love interest, an influencer and entrepreneur named Zelie Timothy. The pair displayed their affections publicly as they attended Monday's NBA All-Star game together in Atlanta.

The video Gibson shared featured the couple sitting in a private suite at the basketball game. The "Baby Boy" actor looked handsome in his all-black attire while Timothy rocked a cream turtleneck top with a black jacket.

As the camera zoomed in on the couple for a few seconds, Gibson's hand could be seen resting on Timothy's thigh with her hands placed on top of his. 


In the caption, Gibson wrote that he never goes out before admitting that he was happy with the socially-distanced seating arrangements at the arena. He also referenced a line from his song, "Signs of Love Makin," and wrote:

"I don’t know what it is but those Leo’s drive me [crazy.]"


Gibson's PDA with Timothy, whose Instagram bio reads, "your fav Dominican Leo," received mixed reactions from fans. While some were happy to see the singer's new lady, others were concerned about how fast he moved on.

One fan commented, "Happy for you," while an unimpressed fan exclaimed, "Delete this." Another person wrote, "Wow! You got over Samatha very quickly."


Some of the negative comments were based on the fact Gibson made a public vow to get Lee back in a comment on Tammy Franklin's Instagram post celebrating her anniversary with gospel singer, Kirk Franklin in January.

Despite Gibson and Lee claiming that the divorce was amicable, things turned ugly once the legal proceedings began.

At the time, the "Sweet Lady" singer was clearly not ready to end the relationship, but ultimately things had turned sour weeks before his pleas and he couldn't save his almost four-year marriage.


Although Gibson and Lee claimed that their divorce was amicable, things turned ugly once the legal proceedings began. Lee claimed that the "Best of Me" singer had locked her and their two-year-old daughter Soraya Gibson out of their family home.

Although Gibson desires a smooth and amicable divorce, he knows all too well how much things can change due to his previous divorce to Norma Gibson, which resulted in a series of contentious legal battles over their child, Shayla Gibson.
