Could Shemar Moore be one step closer to finding love? The S.W.A.T. star introduced his couldn’t-help-but-gush-over-his date to the 2018 Grammy Awards.

Shemar Moore's Grammy Date

Who was the lucky lady? Actress Annabelle Acosta, who is known for her roles on Quantico, Ballers, and Chicago P.D., served as Moore’s arm candy for the big night.

“Look at her, she’s beautiful,” said Moore while Entertainment Tonight caught up with him and Acosta on the red carpet. Still, he quickly cleared the air and reiterated, “This is a homie thing,” before fans and viewers could conjure up anything else. Still, he had no shame in revealing how he got Acosta to be his date.

“We’re getting to know each other,” explained Moore. “I’ll be honest, I wrote an email. I did that impromptu chivalry stuff… I took a chance, I leaped.”

Acosta confirmed that Moore did indeed write an email. Even though it might seem like an easy way to ask for a date, she also added that he was “very sweet” and “a gentleman” in the now infamous email.

Moore added that he didn’t think Acosta would actually give him the time of day. He said he was convinced she’d think he was “creepy,” “weird” or not even know who he was. He revealed she responded a few days after that.

So What Happened With Phaedra Parks?

This came just weeks after he made it clear he was not in a relationship with former Bravo’s The Real Housewives of Atlanta star, Phaedra Parks. Fans might remember there was speculation Moore and Parks were an item after she posted a snapshot of the two on Instagram.

Moore shared a different version of what was happening between them during an appearance on E! News’ Daily Pop show. He made it clear that he was not dating anybody. He said he was just as surprised at Parks’s post as everyone else who reached out to him.

He pointed out that they met during an appearance on Bravo’s Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen. They got pretty flirty with one another, which also made headlines and sparked rumors that they were more than friends. Still, he said that wasn’t the case at all.

“…That’s the first and the last time that I’ve ever seen or met Phaedra.”

Parks hasn’t responded to Moore’s side of the story.
