Shay Mitchell and Jimmy Butler Dating – Report
Actress Shay Mitchell is reportedly dating American basketball player Jimmy Butler.
The Pretty Little Liars star and the Chicago Bulls player had lunch together at Il Pastaio in Beverly Hills, California, on Saturday and in a video obtained by TMZ, the two are seen laughing and smiling together while they waited for Mitchell’s car in a parking garage.
The pair have yet to comment on the status of the relationship, but according to the publication, Mitchell and Butler recently started dating. Butler was seen out later that night and was asked about the lunch date, but he remained coy about the outing.
Mitchell previously dated Drake’s cousin and assistant Ryan Silverstein, but the two split in 2014. She has also been linked to actor Jacob Artist. The 29-year-old recently opened up about her love life and revealed she does not like to put labels on her sexuality.
“When I started (out), people were like, ‘What are you?’ I’m like, ‘Right now I’m dating a guy (but) I don’t know what it’s going to be in three years,”’ she told Cosmopolitan earlier this month. “You love who you love. Black, white, polka-dot, that’s what my dad always said.”
“I’m never going to label myself. I could be 50 and dating a woman and then what? I said I was straight and now I’m not?”
While Mitchell is open to dating whoever makes her happy, she previously insisted she refuses to go out with someone just to fill her time.
“I don’t need anybody to feel complete,” she told Seventeen last year. “I don’t need to be with somebody just to not be alone.”
