Billy Porter Reveals He's Dating Around Six Months Post Divorce



Actor Billy Porter is dating again following his divorce from his husband of six years, Adam Smith.



“I’m gonna take a break for a minute. Daddy is dating around,” Porter exclusively told Page Six of his love life.


The “Pose” actor walked the red carpet at a gala for cancer charity DKMS at Cipriani Wall Street — where he also performed as styled by Ty Hunter.


When asked if he saw anyone at the charity bash that piqued his interest, he quipped, “I see them, don’t you think I know?” But, “I’m not peeping nobody yet, they got to peep me. They got to take care of me, honey.”


The busy star has a new album, “The Black Mona Lisa,” out Nov. 17.


“I am breaking a sweat. I have broken a sweat,” he said of his new work. “Because it is about expanding my audience and helping my audience know that I am not new to this. I am true to this. Many people got on the Billy Porter train at different times, but the singing was first… type it in Google and you will understand. She ain’t new with this pop music thing.”


The multihyphenate recalled of starting his career, “I met with a manager… and he said you have to choose one thing, you can’t do everything at the same time.” But today, “I’m grateful that I did not listen to him.”


He said having such diverse talents has helped during the SAG-AFTRA strike of Hollywood actors. “I’m so multihyphenated that I’m blessed to always have something to do,” Porter said. “I was working. I’m one of the lucky ones. I’m one of the blessed one, but I’m grateful that I followed my own instinct and heart.”


He has previously said he was forced to sell his home because of the strike, as well as the recent WGA strike.
