Al Sharpton is dating a personal stylist more than 20 years his junior, The New York Daily News reported.
The 58-year-old MSNBC host and civil rights activist has been spotted at multiple high-profile events with Aisha McShaw, 35, including this year’s White House Correspondents’ Dinner and the White House holiday party in December.
The two attended the New York County Democratic Committee Award Ceremony Monday night, where the Daily News inquired about their relationship:
“I’m his girlfriend,” McShaw said before Sharpton intervened to shepherd her away from a reporter.
She told The News that she works as a “personal stylist,” but Sharpton quickly shuffled her off without letting her elaborate on her profession.
He refused to answer a question about how long the two had been an item.
Sharpton separated from his wife of 24 years in 2004.
