TLC’s Rozonda “Chilli” Thomas said she had no interest in dating again after breaking up with Usher a few years back, but that was before she got an up-close look at Tyrese’s rock-hard abs while filming the video for his new single, “Nothing On You” — mostly in a bed.

Tyrese, 33, has long had a crush on Chilli. “But she ignored him — until now,” says the pal.

After flirting on Twitter after the shoot, the two quietly started dating, a pal says. Chilli, 40, has also been vocal about wanting to get married.
