Grey’s Anatomy actor Eric Dane is dating a Black women – and he’s getting praise for it online. Eric split from his wife Rebecca Gayheart after 14 years of marriage in February.
Yesterday Eric was spotted walking hand in hand in West Hollywood with his new girlfriend – a gorgeous Black woman. Pics of Eric and his new bae circulated last night, and the response from Black women was overwhelming.
Eric’s ex-wife Rebecca isn’t happy about losing her husband, She turned 47 this week and took to Instagram to thank her family and friends for being supportive during a ‘heartbreaking’ year. In February 2018, Gayheart filed for divorce from Dane after 14 years of marriage, citing “irreconcilable differences”.
‘Thank you my sweet friends for helping me celebrate my birthday despite my plans to NOT celebrate. I’m the luckiest girl in the world to be surrounded by so many loving , supportive , funny and beautiful friends and I cannot find words powerful enough to express my gratitude.
‘This has been a very difficult / heartbreaking year and I have survived by leaning heavily on friends and family. Thank you to my tribe ( including the ones not pictured) for holding me up.’
Despite Rebecca going through a lot, Eric has also had his struggles.
Dane made headlines when he participated in a nude tape with his ex wife and Kari Ann Peniche.
In June 2011, Dane entered a California treatment center to rectify a dependency on prescription drugs he had developed after suffering a sports injury.
In April 2017, The Last Ship halted production through Memorial Day to allow Dane to deal with the depression he was battling.
