Is Denise in a new relationship?

Denise also stunned with her outfit, a gold-sequinned dress with a fitted bodice.

Jimmy, meanwhile, looked smart in a tuxedo. But aside from their flawless style, the pair also caught the eye due to how taken they seemed with one another.

At one point photographers captured Jimmy holding her hand as if guiding her up the steps for the event.

Furthermore, according to reports, they have previously enjoyed “a few dates” together.

Denise confirmed their break up at the start of 2022.

She told Instagram fans back in January: “Over the past couple of months, there has been much speculation regarding my relationship with Eddie.

“It saddens me to confirm that we are no longer a couple.”

Making it clear she called it quits, Denise went on: “I had to make the difficult decision not to continue in our relationship.

“I will always treasure the good times we spent together, and the memories made.”
