Love is in the air for Laverne Cox! The Orange Is the New Black Star brought her new boyfriend, Jono Freedrix, to the SAG Awards in LA on Saturday night. While they didn't walk the red carpet together, the couple was spotted cozying up at a table with Laverne's castmates; the group had a truly glamorous night out and even took home the award for outstanding cast in a comedy series. Sources told Us Weekly that Laverne and Jono were spotted "packing on the PDA" at the Weinstein Company and Netflix afterparty later that evening. The eyewitness added that at one point in the night, Jono "playfully slapped her ass," and that Laverne was "having so much fun, she split her pants dancing!"
Jono is a former high school teacher and the president of The Virtual Stage, a film and theater company based in Vancouver. His relationship with Laverne goes back as far as 2014, when he shared an Instagram photo with her at the Emmys that year.
