After rumors that actress Jane Krakowski had a fling with MyPillow CEO Mike Lindell — which both categorically denied, leading to Lindell threatening a lawsuit, claiming the story caused him “significant humiliation and emotional distress” — the 30 Rock star’s real boyfriend has been identified.
A source recently claimed that the actress has been dating famed architect and Tony Award-winning Broadway set designer David Rockwell “for a couple of years now,” however “very quietly.”
“Friends are speculating if the strange story about Jane and the silly MyPillow guy was a game of telephone; maybe somehow Rockwell turned into Lindell in rumor-ville,” the source said, adding that “people are baffled where the story came from. Lindell is absolutely not her type.”
Rockwell has designed many sets for Broadway shows and movies, which is believed to be how he met Krakowski. He won the Tony Award for his design of the 2016 Broadway revival of She Loves Me, in which Krakowski starred and received a Tony nomination for Best Featured Actress in a Musical.
In March 2019, the two were spotted together at the opening night of the Broadway revival of Kiss Me, Kate. She was also seen at Rockwell’s 60th birthday party at the Central Park Zoo in July 2020.
As OK! previously reported, after news began to surface of Krakowski having a secret romance with Lindell, her representatives were quick to shut it down, saying that she has never met the businessman or had any kind of relationship with him.
In true comedic fashion, they added that the Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt star was in "full fledged fantasy relationships with Brad Pitt, Regé -Jean Page and Kermit the Frog and welcomes any and all coverage on those.”
Despite the pair denying the fling, rumors of a romance between the two date back to at least November 2020. "I don’t know where this silly rumor came from, but it was circulating awhile back and went away and now [it’s back] again. I don’t get it," a pal dished.
Page Six was the first to report on Krakowski's boyfriend.
