Al Sharpton Responds To Criticism About Girlfriend

Submitted by on July 22, 2013 – 8:41 amNo Comment

Al Sharpton‘s advocacy on the behalf of Trayvon Martin‘s family isn’t the only thing about the 58-year-old civil rights activist that has people talking. Sharpton is currently dating 35-year-old personal stylist Aisha McShaw, and many have voiced their disapproval of the relationship.

McShaw hails from Westchester, New York, and she’s recently been photographed on Sharpton’s arm at several high profile events across the country. The couple’s romance has been met with criticism because of their age difference, and Al’s failure to officially divorce his wife Kathy Jordan, whom he married in 1980 (they’ve been separated since 2004).

In response to the chatter, Sharpton’s publicist, Rachel Noerdlinger, recently revealed that Sharpton is surprised about the response his relationship has elicited. Noerdlinger said, “His exact words to me were, ‘Rachel, I’m not announcing an engagement or a marriage. Don’t I have a right to date when my marriage has been over for a decade?’”

I have nothing against his wanting to be coupled up with a woman that’s young enough to be his daughter (that’s what men his age do), but the two do look extremely odd together. Fifty bucks says she drops him like a bad habit whenever she gets a chance to get close to a rapper or athlete.
