As most of you know, Kenan Thompson and his wife, Christina Evangeline, are currently in the middle of a divorce. They had been married since 2011, but split back in 2020 or early 2021. Since then, Kenan’s wife has entered a new relationship with Kenan’s former ‘SNL’ co-star, Chris Redd.
As for Kenan? Well, uh, he’s going much younger. According to multiple reports, the 44-year-old comedian is in a secret relationship with 19-year-old singer-songwriter, Aria Lisslo.
His “people” claim he’s simply acting as her “mentor” but everyone believes that’s damage control. They’ve been spotted hanging out together at theme parks, fashion shows, concerts, skating rinks, and Kenan even brought her as a guest to an episode of Saturday Night Live.
There was a video being shared online of Kenan and Aria holding hands at an ice skating rink, but his team has been trying to take the video down.
The “mentor” excuse is a bit confusing. As mentioned above, Aria is a singer-songwriter.
She attended NYC-based music, art and performing school LaGuardia, where she underwent classical training for four years. She has released six tracks on SoundCloud so far entitled Garden, Craigslist Missed Connections, Won’t U Be, Whisky N Wine, and Won’t Kill Me. Her most recent song is entitled Bonnie and is also available on major streaming platforms such as Spotify, Apple Music and Amazon Music.
So what exactly is Kenan teaching her about music? I don’t know about you, but if I were a musician, I wouldn’t have a comedian as my mentor.
This wouldn’t be surprising behavior for Kenan. He reportedly started dating his estranged wife when she was 19 as well, but at least he was only 30 then.
Now he’s 44 and still hanging out with teenagers? Yikes.
