Just months after Kenan Thompson filed for divorce from Christina Evangeline, the latter is dating Thompson’s alum. Saturday Night Live co-star Chris Redd.
According to TMZ, Redd and Evangeline “became official in the last year, and there was no overlap or cheating when it happened.” Although Thompson asked Evangeline, his wife of 11 years, in May, the couple had been separated for a few years.
“We’re told Kenan is aware of his ex’s romance with Chris and doesn’t hold a grudge — he’s apparently moved on and is happily dating other people,” TMZ noted.
The news comes several months after the couple’s split was announced. Last May, it was reported that Thompson and his ex-wife had agreed to joint custody of their two daughters, Gianna, 3, and Georgia, 7.
Sources told TMZ in May that the couple had been separated “for over a year” and had successfully co-parented their children while working on separate coasts. Insiders didn’t provide details about the couple’s split, saying they “just went their separate ways, but are able to remain great friends.”
