Rozonda “Chilli” Thomas isn’t playing it “cool” anymore, as she has officially confirmed that she’s dating Boy Meets World actor Matthew Lawrence, states a rep from her team. The singer from the iconic Hip-Hop/R&B girl group TLC and the former teen star are “in an exclusive relationship,” TMZ reports.
The two have apparently been laying low for a while, keeping the status of their relationship under wraps, but over the holidays, the pair was spotted spending quality time together and with loved ones. Per publicist, Chilli and the newly divorced ’90’s heartthrob spent Thanksgiving and Christmas together in ATL, where he met Chilli’s family.
In an Instagram post, the couple made their debut on New Year’s Eve (Dec. 31) as they danced together to a-ha’s 1985 timeless hit, “Take On Me,” all while wearing matching pajamas.
“#newyearsshenanigans #onesiegang #wecute,” captioned the video.
If that alone isn’t relationship goals, the two were also spotted on the island of Waikiki, Hawaii last summer, although reportedly, they weren’t yet romantically involved.
“I’ve been with Chilli since 2005 and I’ve never seen her this in love,” Chilli’s publicist Christal Jordan stated via Billboard. “She is glowing. They are really cute together.”
Lawrence’s ex-wife seems to be in good spirits, too, following their divorce, as she posted a carefree video to TikTok.
“Mood going into 2023,” she captioned a video showing off her hair and spraying perfume on herself.
