Singer-turned-actor Tyrese Gibson is romancing Usher's ex-girlfriend, Rozonda 'Chilli' Thomas, according to a new report.
Editors at In Touch Weekly claim the pair grew close after Tyrese Gibson asked the former TLC star to portray his love interest in his steamy new video for Nothing On You - and now they've started dating.
A source tells the publication the Transformers actor had harbored affections for Chilli prior to the video shoot, "But she ignored him - until now."
Usher dated Chilli for two years before they split in 2003. She also featured in the Yeah! hitmaker's promos for U Remind Me and U Got It Bad.
