A source has revealed information about Jussie Smollett’s new boyfriend.
The source posted:
Just found out that Jussie Smollett’s boyfriend is Tawan Davis.
He is an impressive person but more importantly a great guy.
Had to make this my first post here after reading some posts about how it seems there are hardly ever any successful or famous black gay men dating other black men.
If you ever wondered about Jussie’s charisma or game… not to mention standards, well, read on. By the way he’s never dated any of his coworkers or cast mates on Empire or his employers including Lee Daniels. In the past he’s only ever dated black men in his age range and his preference seems to be dark skinned black men. :glad
Jussie is 35 and Tawan is 38 years old. Both guys are also incredibly philanthropic in the African American community.
Tawan grew up in the inner city of Portland with a single mother but worked extremely hard. He earned a Bachelor’s degree in Economics from Georgetown University, a Master’s degree in Sociology and Economics from Oxford University, England, and an MBA in Finance and Real Estate from Harvard Business School. He was the first African American elected as student body president at his high school and was also president of student government at Georgetown. The Steinbridge Group of NYC appointed him as their first ever Chief Executive Officer.
Jussie is a board member of the RuJohn Foundation. He also serves on the Board of Directors at The Black AIDS Institute and when he heard about their recent budget shortfall Jussie immediately stepped up and donated $20,000. Tawan serves on the Board of Directors of the Friends of Harlem Hospital and the New Horizons Children’s Advocacy Corporation.
All this to say they are a prime example of Black Excellence and show that even at the height of success you can find your potential soulmate and not have to date some young white model. :happy
Jussie and Tawan were both at the Gentlemen’s Ball in Atlanta this past Saturday. Jussie was there to honor his good friend Tarell Alvin McCraney who won the Oscar for writing ‘Moonlight’ with the Gentleman of the Year award. Jussie and Tarell donated $5000 each to the Gentlemen’s Foundation which gives out scholarships to black LGBTQ youth in Atlanta.
They have both been very protective of their relationship it seems but enjoy hanging out with their friends and family together. By the way they are both Cancers so that may be why they go so well together. :wink
