Taraji P. Henson Dating Lamar Odom

New couple alert: Hollyscoop has confirmed that Academy Award nominee Taraji Henson and L.A. Lakers power player Lamar Odom are officially an item!

The couple, who have been dating for a little over a month now, have made several red carpet appearances together including the 66th Annual Golden Globes HBO After Party and Global Grind Grammy party with Russell Simmons this past weekend.

Lamar was in high spirits this past Sunday at the Global Grind party because not only did he have his new lady on his arm, the L.A. Lakers had just beat the Cleveland Cavaliers earlier that night.

"They're pretty serious about each other," a source close to the couple told Hollyscoop exclusively.

Lamar Odom scored a season-high 28 points, which resulted in Lakers dominating the second half and handing Cleveland its first home loss this season. If that isn't something to celebrate, we don't know what is!

Taraji has already been spotted at a Lakers games supporting her new man. So what's next? Perhaps the Academy Awards? It's Taraji's big night, so having her new man by her side could very well be the icing on the cake!
