According to People.com, the comedian, 41, who broke up with girlfriend of five years Silverman in March, has been dating Molly McNearney, a longtime employee of his show, for several month. The star’s rep confirmed the report.
"After Jimmy and Sarah broke up, Molly and Jimmy both found themselves single, and they clicked," a source close to the new couple told People. "They're really happy together."
The source makes it clear, however, that this is no shady David Letterman-type boss-employee relationship. “During work hours, they keep things professional,” the insider said.
McNearney, 31, joined the “Jimmy Kimmel Live!” staff in 2003 as an assistant to the executive producer. She became a writer for the show in 2006, and was promoted to co-head writer in May 2008.
