Chris Redd is reportedly dating SNL co-star Kenan Thompson‘s ex-wife, with the later being surprisingly unbothered by the relationship as insiders say there is no bad blood between the two castmates.
Thompson and wife Christina Evangeline formally called it quits in May after 11-years of marriage. The couple had already been reportedly living separately and had intended on divorcing since at least 2019, TMZ reports.
The pandemic may have played a role in delaying the finalization of the divorce proceedings, but now that they seem to be legally de-tangled, Christina appears to be dating again, and dating none other than Thompson’s Saturday Night Live castmate in Chris Redd.
Sources Say Thompson’s Ex-Wife Christina and His SNL Castmate Chris Redd Started Dating This Past Year
Sources close to the couple told the outlet that Christina and Chris became official within the past year. There was no overlap or cheating involved when the two started dating.
Interestingly enough, Chris has also appeared on Kenan’s eponymous NBC show as well.
Chris and Christina have reportedly known each other for the last six years, according to TMZ.
Just last week, Chris announced he would not be returning to the iconic show’s 48th season, with the timing being right when photos of him and Christina out in NYC began to circulate.
Pictures Of Couple Prompt Many To Assume Kenan Thompson Had A Hand In Redd’s Departure From SNL
Those pictures prompted many to think that Kenan got Chris fired from SNL, but TMZ reports sources as saying it’s the farthest thing from the truth.
The outlet reports that Kenan is already well aware of his ex-wife’s new boyfriend and has no hard feelings.
He’s reportedly moved on himself, and is happily dating other people.
