They were chatting with each other before crossing the street together and were too comfortable with one another. Further information about this guy never came to the media, and they were not spotted together since then. So no any confirmation can be made that the two are dating each other, and he might be her boyfriend but until Gabourey Sidibe clarifies it by herself the ‘boyfriend thing’ is only going to be rumours.
During an Interview with Harpers Bazaar on January 7, 2010, Gabourey talked about her boyfriend, where she said;
He’s a regular guy working a regular job, and I’m scared to take him anywhere.
But she was spotted with a boy at Nets vs. Bucks game in New Jersey on January 8, 2011, where she seems enjoying his company:

The duo had fun together watching the game. Gabourey never revealed his name as well. She always kept her love life secret. It seems she didn’t want her boyfriend to come into limelight. It’s sure they break-up with each other, but the reasons behind the break-up are still under the shadow.
Gabourey has once mentioned the character of her boyfriend. She revealed she once was dating with a gay boy. She also admitted she broke up with the guy when she realized her boyfriend wasn’t quite the man she was dreaming. She told U.S. news show Access Hollywood Live:
I just sorta figured it out… through weird things, he would say and he also tried on all my heels once, so that’s a pretty big indication. “(I was like), ‘I have a feeling that one, you look great in those heels (and) two, you might not be into me’. He wasn’t.
Last year on 2016, Gabourey had laparoscopic bariatric surgery as she was diagnosed with Type 2 diabetes. She had talked about her weight to the People where she mentioned:
I truly didn’t want to worry about all the effects that go along with diabetes. I genuinely [would] worry all the time about losing my toes.
She also said the surgery was not easy for her:
The surgery wasn’t the easy way out,” she says. “I wasn’t cheating by getting it done. I wouldn’t have been able to lose as much as I’ve lost without it.
After surgery, Gabourey is too much cautious for her health. She is working with a special nutritionist and also changed her eating habits, riding a tricycle, swimming and working out with a trainer.

She loves her body now, and she believes her beauty never reveals from the mirror. It is an extraordinary thought, isn’t it?
There’s nothing ugly about me. Anyone trying to convince me that I am — and it’s usually me — is wasting her time,” she says. “I was in a war with my body for a long time. If I’d started treating it better sooner, I wouldn’t have spent so many years hating myself. But I love my body now.
Gabourey has gone real about her love life in her upcoming memoir: “This Is Just My Face: Try Not to Stare.” She told People:
For the most part, I’m living my best life, but I would love to be dating.
