Sara Gilbert has revealed she is dating singer-songwriter Linda Perry, but says she is flattered that people even care about her relationship status. The couple were snapped by paparazzi on Sunday morning (November 27, 2011) and Gilbert says news of the romance spread like wildfire.
Speaking to fellow panellist Aisha Tyler on 'The Talk', Sara explained, "It's weird.I go online and it's on, like, CNN, and I'm flattered, you know, and I can't believe that anyone cares". The comedienne insists she has no problems with her relationship status being made public but joked, "I kinda would rather do it on my terms.in full hair and makeup". Perry was a member of 4 Non Blondes in the early 90s, but now writes tunes for numerous high profile musicians. Pink had a No.1 hit with Perry's song 'Get the Party Started', while Christina Aguilera recorded the songwriter's ballad Beautiful.
Gilbert and her previous girlfriend, Allison Adler broke up in August 2011 after 10 years together in which they had two young children. Speaking about the breakup on The Talk back in September, the Roseanne star teared up, saying, "I think that's such a special time in my life. But then you see people in their 70s and you go like, 'How do people do it? How do they make it last?".
