Gina Torres has been pictured kissing a mystery man. It occurred just days before it was announced the Suits actress has divorced her actor husband Laurence Fishburne.
Earlier in September, Torres, 48, was seen enjoying a lunch date in Studio City, Los Angeles with a man now identified as entrepreneur Kevin Wright. In the images, Torres is seen cradling Wright’s face before planting several kisses on her new man. The pair met on a Southern California beach in August 2017 and have been dating since, according to reports.
Addressing the blossoming romance, an insider told Page Six: “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.”
Wright, who hails from Utah, is a father of six and reportedly ended a 20 year marriage in 2015. The businessman is said to have previously worked as a real estate executive.

Torres and Fishburne, 56, had been married for 14 years after tying the knot in 2002. The former spouses share one daughter, Delilah, and secretly filed for divorce in 2016. Fishburne is also father of two children, daughter Montana and son Langston, from a previous marriage.
Confirming the end of their marriage, Torres told People on 20 September: “With heavy hearts, Laurence and I quietly separated and began the dissolution of our marriage in the early fall of last year. There are no bad guys here. Only a love story with a different ending than either one of us had expected.
“Happily, however, our family remains intact and we will continue to raise our daughter together with love and joy and awe. As well as raise each other up with respect and love and the continued understanding that we’re in this together, if not side by side.”
