*Page Six has done some digging about the man Gina Torres was caught kissing in public this week, prompting the actress to confirm that she and her husband Laurence Fishburne had “quietly separated” in January of 2016l
According to the outlet, the mystery man is divorced entrepreneur Kevin Wright, a father of six from Utah.
The two reportedly met on the beach in Dana Point, Calif., in mid-August, and have grown to become a serious couple, sources tell the site.
Wright had no idea who the former “Suits” star was when they first met, according to sources. But they bonded over the fact that they have both recently left long relationships: Torres split with Fishburne after 15 years together, and Wright ended a 20-year marriage within the past two years.
A source close to the new couple told Page Six, “I think when you’ve been married a long time and you become single, you look for someone that has what your ex was missing. I think [Torres] finds in Kevin what she didn’t find in [Fishburne]. He’s the opposite of a Hollywood guy — he’s just a cowboy type. He’s an ‘I’m going to go ride my horse’ type of guy.”
Former real estate exec Wright has lived in Montana and Utah. Sources say that Wright knew that Torres — who is set to be the star of an as-yet-unnamed “Suits” spinoff — was separated when they struck up their romance.
