Actress Tracee Ellis Ross has a new man in her life. His name is Bu Thiam, the rising 20-something executive at Def Jam Records!

The two lovebirds showed up hand-in-hand at club Mansion in Atlanta on Saturday night. They walked into the club together and headed straight for their reserved VIP booth. My spies tell me Bu flew Tracee in for the weekend and lavished her with expensive trinkets. Bu spent thousands of dollars on bottles of champagne for his sweetie and their friends in the VIP.

As you know, Ellis, 38, is the daughter of legendary singer Diana Ross. In addition to being Akon's brother, Bu is the VP of A&R at Def Jam. He has the distinction of A&R'ing the much-anticipated new album by Jay Z and Kanye West entitled Watch The Throne.

The CD is set to drop on August 2nd. My source at Def Jam tells me that those who've heard the album are already calling it a classic! I can't wait to hear it!

    They are an odd couple!! He doesn't seem like her type and she looks like she is in it for the ride. This looks like one of those "might as well, I don't have chit else to do dates."

    Well that is an unusual pairing if its true. Tracy doesn't seem like the type of chica that would be into the club hopping music exec type.

  • KDub

    What's wrong with the bish behind them in pic one? She look like she got down sinder.

    Joan and Bu? American Black Jewish meets the Mother Land? I am not sure yet.

    I love me some Joanne Clayton, will be looking out for that new series she'll be starring in. I agree, she does look a little out of her element here, I'd feel the same way if I were to see Terry Joseph(soulfood series) in there. I think maybe it's the characters they played...........I don't know.

    Tracee dated C Webb???

  • KK76

    Tracee's been in the A more than usual. I guess this explains it. She was at Justin's one Friday night recently too... She has a great energy about herself.

  • Hard Hitter

    Ty
    Yeah Chris was with her, too at one point.

  • Hard Hitter

    KK76
    She might be in the A because (just a guess) her show may be filmed at Georgia Studios (arent all the BET non-reality show)?

  • Daisy

    Yes Tracee is in town filming

    C Webb is my boo never knew abt him and Tracee but he was w/his wife last time my friend saw him out a few mths back. His wife is pretty.

    His convo must be good, that trumps alot. Seriously I am getting 'Cool Friend Vibe'um... Hopefully :|

  • laterthannever

    This is totally out of left field to me. My (friend in my head) Tracee is so pretty, I'm assuming Bu is brilliant and charming and has super white teeth to offset those mother of pearl eyes?

  • missknowitall

    Love Tracee but I think shes just passing time with him oan how tall is he she looks taller then him even without the heels

  • Belle

    awww they look like Simba & Scar from the Lion King. I <3 Tracee...

  • SylentDreamz

    I am sooo tired of seeing the most ugliest people coupled up by someone THEY KNOW GOOD AND WELL would like NOT them if they did not have a large enough bank account. Tracy Ellis by no means would need a man to secure her future, but I can not see how waking up to him everyday would be a blissful life. Looks are not everything but they do count..just saying!
