Meet Laverne Cox’s Apparent New Beau, Jono Freedrix
Laverne Cox made headlines following the 2016 SAG Awards after photos surfaced of the Orange is the New Black star getting cozy with a cute white guy. Turns out, the man is Cox’s boo.
Sources confirm to Us Weekly that the dude pictured next to Cox is Jono Freedrix, president of Vancouver-based film and theater company, The Virtual Stage.
Aside from taking a seat next to the star at the awards show, it was the after party that had everybody questioning the duo’s relationship status. According to reports, while at the Weinstein Company/Netflix after party at Sunset Tower Hotel in West Hollywood, the two were very touchy.
An insider tells the news outlet that the transgender actress and Freedrix danced and kissed all night; sounds like without caring much as to who was watching.
According to Jono’s website, the Brooklyn resident is a former high school teacher where he taught photography, drama and ran an award-winning teen filmmaking program.
We reached out to Jono to absolutely confirm the courtship, but calls were not returned.
What do you think? Cute couple?
