New couple alert! New couple alert! US Weekly is confirming that lovely Orange Is the New Black star Laverne Cox is dating Jono Freedrix, president of The Virtual Stage, a Vancouver-based film and theater company. The two were spotted canoodling at the Weinstein Company/Netflix SAG Awards afterparty at Sunset Tower Hotel in West Hollywood over the weekend.
According to an eyewitness, Cox wasn’t shy about getting close to her beau. The transgender star spent the evening dancing with and kissing Freedrix. At one point in the night, the source says Freedrix even playfully slapped her ass. Cox was having so much fun, another source adds, that she split her pants dancing!
Cutie-patootie Freedrix is a former high school teacher who ran an award-winning teen filmmaking program called Killarney Films, and who “also happens to love orangutans.” Freedrix has worked with Cox’s costars in the past. OITNB’s Joel Marsh Garland and Pat Squire appeared in his “twisted comedy” about public breastfeeding, entitled Sucklepump.
Congratulations to both!
