After news broke that Paula Patton, 42, was dating real estate agent Zachary Quittman, 30, he is shutting down some rumors about his past!
In response to rumors that he’s still married to another woman, Quittman told People magazine, “We were totally separated before I moved on.”
He emphasized that they’ve been separated “for a while.”
As for claims that his estranged wife was caught offguard by the dating news, Quittman commented, “Obviously there’s three sides to every story and I’m not pointing the finger or saying anyone’s wrong, but we were definitely separated before I moved on.”
Earlier this week, Paula told “Extra’s” Tanika Ray that she and Zachary have been dating for “a month.” She also professed her love for him, saying, “When you know, you know. I love him.”
At the time, she didn’t reveal his identity, but teased, “If you have a kid and you have a basketball game, look at the daddies. It’s kind of a suburban romance. He’s got kids, I got a kid. It’s one of those!”
