Is she or isn’t she? Are they…?
Majority of entertainment outlets seem to be resolved about the fact of whether or not former talk show host Rosie O’Donnell is dating Tatum O’Neal, despite the fact that we’re still not sure ourselves. The questions still popping in our head are: Is she… or isn’t she? Are they…?
Fortunately, TMZ has managed to clear this for us by shooting down circulating reports that the two have been dating for weeks already. According to Rosie’s rep who told TMZ, Rosie and Tatum have been friends for several years, and met in Chicago when they were both working on shows for the Oprah Winfrey Network (OWN).
Rosie O’Donnell, Tatum O’Neal dating?
The Daily Mail had earlier reported the two as dating for two months already. According to other reports, they had been spotted watching the Broadway show Hamilton and then dinner together at Da Silvano restaurant after in New York City.
Prior to this, O’Neal had made the admission of dating women in People Magazine, which she later expanded in a September piece with Harper’s Bazaar. She was formerly married to tennis star John McEnroe for eight years and had three children with him. The two separated in 1992 and officially divorced in 1994.
