Al Sharpton: "Yes, She's My Girlfriend"
Rev. Al Sharpton, the 58-year old civil rights icon who marched with Martin Luther King, Jr, says that he is in fact dating Aisha McShaw, a 35-year-old stylist from Westchester, New York. The two have been seen together arm-and-arm at various recent events. Most recently, the two were spotted at the Black-Tie White House Correspondents Dinner.
This is the first relationship that Sharpton has made public since he separated from his wife, Kathy Lee Jordan, in 2004 after 24 years of marriage. Although legally separated, the two have not yet officially divorced. They also have two adult daughters together, Dominique and Ashley.
Sharpton is planning to release a new memoir in October 2013 called The Rejected Stone. His publicist says that the book chronicles his evolution from street activist to elder civil rights statesman. She said it also includes revelations about Sharpton’s private life including "dating younger and older women."
In a recently made comment to The Daily News, Sharpton said, "Don’t I have a right to date when my marriage has been over for a decade?" His wife has yet to make a statement.
