Days After Revealing She’d Date Either Sex, a PLL Girl Has Found a New Love

By  | 

Despite the fact that Shay Mitchell recently said she’s open to dating women, she has found a new love, who happens to be a guy. But even though the Pretty Little Liars actress hasn’t entered a girl-on-girl relationship, her rumored boyfriend is quite different than anyone she’s dated in the past.

The 29-year-old star was seen on a lunch date with Chicago Bulls basketball player Jimmy Butler in Los Angeles over the weekend, and according to TMZ, they’re definitely together. Sources told the site that Shay and Jimmy have recently started dating and it “wasn’t just a one-off lunch thing.”

Although we’re not sure of the exact timeline of the pair’s romance, the brunette beauty attended a Bulls-Clippers game back in January, which we’re sure the 26 year old was absolutely THRILLED ABOUT… ’cause he’s previously admitted that Shay is his celeb crush!

“I would have to say [my celebrity crush is] Shay Mitchell, who plays Emily on Pretty Little Liars,” he revealed last May. “Have you seen that show? She’s, uh, she’s really, really good looking. Shay Mitchell it is.”

Coincidentally (or maybe not so much), both Shay and Jimmy recently attended Stagecoach Music Festival and posted various pictures (none together) on their respective Instagram pages.

If these dating rumors are true, the athlete is the first person the Canadian woman has been involved with since she and her longtime boyfriend Ryan Silverstein called it quits in October 2014.


Jimmy Butler definitely isn’t the first star lucky enough to actually DATE their celebrity crush…
