Still-Married Al Sharpton's Went to White House with Girlfriend
Saturday, 20 July 2013
The Reverend Al Sharpton, 58, married to Kathy Lee Jordan since 1980, but separated from her since 2004, has been accompanied by a 35-year-old “personal stylist” while attending high-profile events such as President Obama’s December holiday party and the black-tie White House Correspondents Dinner in April.
Sharpton has been seen with a number of younger women, notably singer Foxy Brown and actress LisaRaye, but 35-year-old Aisha McShaw, his latest flame, told the Daily News this week that she is his girlfriend.
Sharpton had a sharp rejoinder to the Daily News story, his chief spokeswoman Rachel Noerdlinger admitted: “His exact words to me were, ‘Rachel, I’m not announcing an engagement or a marriage. Don’t I have a right to date when my marriage has been over for a decade?’” Noerdlinger herself commented, “I don’t discuss his personal life and he doesn’t talk about it.”
Noerdlinger allowed that Sharpton may reveal more details of his love life in his new memoir, “The Rejected Stone,” to be released in October.
