Patti LaBelle, 71, dating her drummer who is 30 years younger
"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.
Patti reportedly met Eric several years ago when he was first hired to be her band's drummer. Though the "Lady Marmalade" singer was just coming out of a relationship at the time, she allegedly found Eric to be very attractive and began chatting with him after her shows.
