Rosie O’Donnell has denied dating Tatum O’Neal, but only The National ENQUIRER has this world exclusive photo proof that the two really are an item!
The same-sex couple posed for the picture on Aug. 7, after sharing an intimate dinner at Da Silvano, a popular Italian celebrity restaurant in Manhattan.
An eyewitness told The ENQUIRER: “They’d asked for a table way in the back, and they were clearly on a date. Tatum was dressed to the nines in a slinky black dress, and they drank red wine.
“During the meal, the two whispered to each other a lot, held hands and seemed very much in love.”
Before they left, another couple asked Rosie, 53, and Tatum – a 51-year-old mother of three who has admitted she likes and dates women – to pose for a photo.
“Rosie clearly wanted to cover up the secret date, and was reluctant. But she finally gave in, and Tatum leaned into her for the snap,” the source revealed.
According to a published report, a friend was quoted as saying: “They aren’t quite ready to go public with their romance.”
But on Sept. 3, Rosie appeared to be warming to confirming the relationship.
She joked and called Tatum “my new wife.”
