Ginuwine and Solé finalized their shocking divorce last year after 12 years of marriage, and Solé has already moved on with a new bae. Find out who's making her blush these days inside...
It didn't take long for Solé to get scooped up by a new man. In fact, her new boo is her long time friend of 27 years -- Richard Griffin aka rapper Professor Griff of Public Enemy.
43-year-old Solé met the now 56-year-old Professor Griff almost three decades ago when she was in a girl group called Divine, and they would cross paths at shows.
Now, one marriage, a divorce, and four kids later, he's back in her life.
Solé's been posting the above then & now pics for the last few days hinting that she has a new love in her life. She revealed that she's loved him since she was 15 years old. She had an innocent crush on him and he played the part of her protector and friend. But now, she knows it was true love:
Then and now... 27 years between... I loved you since I was 15 years old and you looked at me like a little sister... while I crushed on you with the innocence of a little girl... you played the role of protector and my true friend ... "you can't connect the dots looking forward; you can only connect them looking backwards.
She continued about their relationship:
So you have to trust that the dots will somehow connect in your future. You have to trust in something - your gut, destiny, life, karma, whatever." ... looking back...connecting the dots ... it all makes sense... through relationships and babies.. life's hurts and disappointments, tragedy and triumph, successes and failures, ups and downs... all preparing us for what is NOW... evolving into who we are at this moment... and that love, mutual respect and friendship has always remained... and has now come full circle... i love you now like I loved you then... with the purity and innocence of a 15 year old little girl ... who blushes when she sees you... jumps on you like a kid, laughs with you til 4am about anything, everything and nothing at all... and can't imagine life without you... #9 #4life #tbt #yepimbeingmushy #bonnieandclyde #godandthegoddess #manplansgodlaughs
Griff commented on their slow-dance throw back pic saying:
Thankfully, it does seem like everybody is one big happy family now too. Griff joined Solé and Ginuwine at their daughter Dream's 14th birthday party last week, and they snapped a few pics together. The former Mrs. Lumpkin said:
Together celebrating my baby Dreams 14th birthday tonight with these handsome men here... It's a beautiful thing when men show mutual respect and love... Grown man behavior right here. #family #love @professorgriff #9 @ginuwine
Well isn't that special...
