Do we have a new couple on our hands? Shay Mitchell had a huge smile on her face while out for lunch with basketball star Jimmy Butler on May 7 — and they just looked too cute together!
Shay Mitchell’s love life on Pretty Little Liars is pretty bleak at the moment, but in real life, it looks like she may have herself a brand new man. The actress enjoyed a lunch date with Jimmy Butler, 26, over the weekend, so of course we have to wonder: Are they dating?
The pair didn’t flaunt any noticeable PDA when photographers caught them at Il Pastaio in Beverly Hills on May 7, but Shay was rockin’ a smile as she walked side by side with her rumored new man. She kept things casual for the outing in black jeans and an off-the-shoulder gray sweater, which she paired with a black choker and oversized, cross-body purse.
Speculation that these two might be in a relationship began back in January, when the 29-year-old was seen watching Jimmy’s team, the Chicago Bulls, take on the Los Angeles Lakers. The shooting guard, who is a two-time NBA All-Star and named the NBA’s Most Improved Player in 2015, has been playing for the Bulls since 2011.
Shay previously dated Ryan Silverstein for about a year from 2013 until 2014, but Jimmy is the first man she’s been linked to publicly since the split. The pair reportedly broke up after constant arguing, so we think it’s time Shay finds herself a happy relationship again!
While Jimmy’s basketball season has come to an end for the year, the actress has been hard at work filming the seventh season of Pretty Little Liars, which airs in June. Hopefully her man will be able to spend a lot of time in California during all his free time in the off-season!
What do you think of Shay and Jimmy as a couple, HollywoodLifers?
