Dr. Darrin Porcher wants you to know that he is NOT dating Wendy Williams.
After a false and completely unverified report surfaced yesterday claiming that the ex-cop and criminal justice expert and Wendy are dating, Dr. Porcher told Page Six that they’re not together.
via Page Six:
“It’s flattering to hear, but it’s not the case,” he said. “I’m in a relationship. I just worked security for her for a couple of weeks after she filed for divorce.”
Porcher’s account lines up with our April report that Williams, 54, beefed up security to protect her from estranged husband Kevin Hunter.
Porcher, who now works as a professor at Pace University and has even appeared on Williams’ show in the past as a correspondent, joked he wouldn’t mind being Williams’ arm candy.
“I wish that was the case, but I shouldn’t say that because I do have somebody,” he joked. “I should say, fortunately, that’s not the case.”
On Monday’s episode of her talk show, Williams revealed that she is dating a doctor in his 50s, saying, “I’m not in love but there’s somebody that I’m crazy about.”
Did anyone check with sources close to Wendy or Dr. Porcher before claiming that the two were an item? This is exactly what happens when people get lazy.
Update: DailyMailTV also spoke with Dr. Porcher and “he laughed and denied he was dating [Wendy] Williams.”
‘I’m flattered,’ he said, ‘but that’s not the case. I was brought in to provide security for Wendy during her divorce, she wanted someone with an air of legitimacy. But that’s where it ends, I’m happily in a relationship right now.’
