Matthew Lawrence, who rose to fame for his role in the popular show “Boy Meets World,” has found love again. The actor is now officially dating Rozonda Thomas, aka Chilli, the popular singer from the group TLC, after his divorce from fellow “Dancing with the Stars” pro Cheryl Burke. More info on USmagazine.
Matthew and Chilli started seeing each other romantically in November 2022, and by New Year’s Eve, they were “in love”. According to Christal Jordan, a close friend of Chilli’s, she has never seen her friend so happy and in love.
Matthew’s relationship with Chilli
All started three months after her rep told Us Weekly that they were “just friends” when they were seen together in Hawaii. This news was a surprise to many, given that Matthew had been married to Burke, another “Dancing with the Stars” pro, for over two years. Burke announced their split in February 2022, citing “irreconcilable differences” as the reason.
In a statement, Burke said, “I know I have always said I’m an open book with you guys, I do strive to be, and in writing this I’ve realized there really isn’t an easy way to announce that my marriage is ending. I hope you can understand that I will not be commenting any further at this time and am asking for understanding and privacy. Thank you all for all the kind words and support you’ve given me.”

Ysabella is my daughter; I am a dog mom.”
