According to Daily Mail, two-time Grammy Award winner Patti LaBelle is dating a man 30 years younger than her, 41-year-old drummer Eric Seats, and has been for the past year and a half. Seats has toured with Stevie Wonder, Mary J. Blige, Timbaland and Missy Elliott, in addition to producing songs for Destiny’s Child and Aaliyah. And he moved from Los Angeles to Philadelphia last year to be closer to the music legend.

‘He made her feel at ease and she loved that he had such a vast experience working in the music business,’ a source told Daily Mail Online exclusively.



LaBelle’s 42-year-old son Zuri Edwards isn’t too happy about his mother dating a man a year younger than he is, a source revealed.

Do you think there’s anything wrong with Patti dating Eric? If she’s happy, then we say more power to her. Let the cougars in this place say, Amen.

      LOLOL! That is ok, we got you covered.

    • Good Evening Sister,

      I hope that you are having a great day Sister.

    • eLLe D.

      It was a good day, thanks for asking, how about yourself?

    • You’re Welcome.

      I’m doing great today. I’m surfing channels between political news and Bravo movie networks.

    • eLLe D.

      I am multi-tasking myself. Getting ready to exercise–ugh but it is ALL good.

    • Exercise is so cool. It can increase blood flow, improve intelligence, improve emotions, and it can make people live longer. Exercise is one fountain of youth in a way.

    • eLLe D.

      Yes it is, it really does keep us young and vital–so we can all be like Ms. Patti one day (I had to throw that in lol ;)

    • Goodnight Sister Elle D.

  • Nothing is new under the sun. A lot of people do date each other with a massive age gap. I have no problem with dating an older person, but not someone with a massive age gap. Yet, they love each other. They’re grown. To each its own. Some want to find love in many means. Their relationship is fine.

    Patti looks great for her age. Nothing wrong with it as long as they both are happy.

  • BlackGlamour

  • Of course she is. There aren’t any men alive that aren’t 30 years younger than Patti LaBelle.
