Patti LaBelle Opens Up About Whether She'll Date Again at 77

Patti LaBelle is discussing her love life.

The 77-year-old music icon spoke about her romantic life in an interview with People.

Back in 2000, she and ex Armstead Edwards separated after 31 years of marriage, and finalized the divorce in 2003.

Now, she says she’s “not interested” in dating again.

“I’m just living my life like it’s platinum,” she continued.

“Thank God I have a lot of people who care for me. I live alone with my dog, Mr. Cuddles, and I’m looking for love from everybody. I am.”

She also enjoys time with granddaughters Gia, 6, and Leyla, 4, whose dad is her 48-year-old son Zuri Edwards.

“I learned to cook from my mom and dad; now they’re learning from me. It’s just fun!” she said.

Leyla, the little baby, she thinks she has a YouTube cooking channel. She makes sushi, and then at the very end she says, ‘Bye-bye.’ So she thinks she can cook, and I think she will be a good cook.”

Gia is trying to teach me how to use a smartphone because I have a flip phone. She’s 6, and we were at a restaurant last night. I said, ‘Oh, wow, Gia, what are you doing?’ And she said, ‘Grandma, I have 70 something likes’ — I don’t know what she has, but anyway, she was showing me how to work certain parts of the phone.”

Last year, she trended due to a very bizarre political drama on Twitter.
