Love is in the air! Patti LaBelle, famous singer and inventor of the all-too-famous Patti Pies, has a new man.

According to a new report, the Diva, who is currently 71-years-old, has been dating her 41-year-old drummer, Eric Seats, for more than a year. That’s 30 years her junior!

“She tried to keep it quiet, but everyone around her has figured things out now. She’s completely smitten with him and they spend so much time together,” a source close to the star told the Daily Mail.

Ms. LaBelle reportedly had the pleasure of meeting Seats several years ago when he’d first gotten hired to perform as her drummer. Though the ‘Lady Marmalade’ singer was just coming out of a relationship with another man during that time, she’d allegedly found Seats to be very attractive and would constantly chat with him after her shows.

“It wasn’t long before he was helping her heal her broken heart,” the insider continued. “He made her feel at ease and she loved that he had such a vast experience working in the music business.”

“Everything they do now, they do it together. She hasn’t seemed this happy in years. Apparently those who know him say he’s always dated older women,” the source added of the couple.

LaBelle made headlines right before the holidays hit after her delicious sweet potato pies told out in Wal-Mart stores across the U.S. A young man, James Wright Chanel, first heard about the pies and decided to make a video about them.

Needless to say, the clip went viral, she made a ton of money and he got to spend the holidays with one of his favorite singers.

Rumor has it, she is now working on a Patti Cake… no pun intended.

So, what are your thoughts on this new union? We at Naturally Moi wish Ms. LaBelle and Mr. Seats a happy and successful relationship.

Have your say!
