Amidst his divorce from his wife of 20 years, Dr. Rania “Rainbow” Barris, Kenya Barris, creator of Black-ish, has been spotted in New York City holding hands with Padma Lakshmi,the former host of Top Chef. Kenya Barris filed for divorce in the aftermath of a separation from his estranged wife since 2020, citing irreconcilable differences.

The couple, who share six children, is currently undergoing divorce proceedings, with Kenya seeking joint physical and legal custody. Dr. Rania, on the other hand, has expressed her desire for sole custody of their children along with spousal support.

Despite the ongoing legal matters, Kenya Barris and Padma Lakshmi were seen taking a public stroll through SoHo, holding hands and reportedly engrossed in conversation. The two were heading to McNally Jackson Bookstore, with Padma seemingly never leaving Barris’s side.

While there have been no official statements confirming their relationship, a source disclosed that the duo met through work and are working on a project together. The source stated, “They are developing something together and are getting to know each other,” emphasizing that their connection is in its early stages.

Padma Lakshmi, who confirmed her single status during a 2019 Watch What Happens Live interview, and Kenya Barris have yet to address the dating rumors circulating around them. The evolving relationship adds a new chapter to Kenya Barris’s life as he navigates the complexities of his divorce.
