Lesbian actress-turned-TV personality Sara Gilbert has confirmed reports she’s dating rocker and songwriter Linda Perry.
The couple was spotted holding hands during a recent shopping trip in Los Angeles and Gilbert came clean about the new romance on her TV show The Talk on Wednesday, insisting she’ll reveal more when she’s ready.

She said, “The other day I was just out, and the paparazzi were there. All these articles are out that I’m in a new relationship… I go online, and it’s on CNN… it’s weird.

“I do want to share with you… but I want to do it on my terms, in full hair and make-up.”

Gilbert ended her relationship with her partner of 10 years, Allison Adler, in August.
