Tracee Ellis Ross Locks Lips With Her New Boo

Tracee Ellis Ross was finally spotted in public with her new boo, Bu Thiam. The couple was seen leaving the Trump Soho Hotel in New York on Thursday before sharing a kiss goodbye.

Tracee Eliss Ross shared a quick peck with Thiam just as he hopped into the taxi cab that was waiting outside the luxury hotel. Ross has been seeing the 39-year-old executive producer for quite some time now and cameras snapped away as the two shared a sweet moment before going their separate ways. Bu, who is also Akon’s brother, has recently become the host of MTV’s “Hip Hop POV.”

The couple has finally been pushed out into the spotlight after trying to keep their romantic relationship out of the eyes of the public. The couple has been seen together in the past, cuddled up during a few club events, but the kiss in the middle of the Big Apple finally confirmed all the dating rumors.

The American actress’s athletic physique and curly locks made her quite the catch for Thiam, but Tracee’s mother, the iconic Diana Ross, wasn’t very pleased with the new boyfriend. Rumors have suggested that Thiam actually has quite a few wives, which is not uncommon in his culture.

Despite her mother’s disapproval the “Reed Between the Lines” actress has revealed that she is ready to settle down and has already considered having children with Thiam.

“I got it from my mother. She always wanted children,” she told Uptown magazine. “I want to be a mom, but obviously this stuff happens in God’s time and not mine.”

The actress also revealed in the interview that her intentions were never to keep Bu Thiam a secret.

“I am not going to hide my relationship, but I am not talking about it,” Tracee explained. “When you do that, you invite other people and their opinions and issues in. You can’t discover the person on your own.”
