AceShowbiz - Gabourey Sidibe has a ripped boyfriend. While she rarely posted about her beau on her Instagram, he often paraded their public display of affection on his page. "One of my favorite humans in the world...I'll stop so y'all don't throw up over the cuteness," he wrote in one pic.
The boyfriend named Brandon Frankel is a former SVP of Brand Partnerships & Creators Initiative at Paradigm Talent Agency. He left the firm in 2017 to form his own consulting company.
He first posted about Sidibe in April 2019. He joined her during a visit to Disneyland in May to celebrate her birthday with a group of friends. It was his first visit to the theme park. "One of the sickest days ever- happy birthday Queen," he left a comment on her post.
The couple celebrated Christmas together and he gifted her an easy-bake oven for the jolly season. "My man got me the very opposite of a peloton for Christmas. I'm bout to take 12 hours of my time and make him a bomb a** gluten free cake with a light bulb!" she captioned her post.
Meanwhile, the 36-year-old Oscar-nominated actress surprised him with a weeklong vacation to visit Mayan ruins in Yucatan, Mexico for his birthday. "This surprise birthday vacation was a dream," he gushed. "Crazy to believe 8 days went by that quick. Love you to the moon and back my Queen."
A few weeks before Christmas, Gabourey Sidibe showed off dramatic weight loss. The "Precious: Based on the Novel PUSH by Sapphire" star has been diagnosed with Type 2 diabetes. She underwent laparoscopic bariatric surgery in the past to manage her weight.
In her memoir, the star explained she went under the knife due to health concerns. "I did not get this surgery to be beautiful. I did it so I can walk around comfortably in heels. I want to do a cartwheel. I want not to be in pain every time I walk up a flight of stairs," she said.
