SCOOP: Who Is Lance Gross’ New Girlfriend?! Plus Kimye Canoodles At Tyler Perry’s Mansion!

Lance and Rebecca

The stars came out Saturday night for Tyler Perry‘s “Temptation” premiere and after party on Saturday night!

Perry held a screening at an Atlanta theater and the stars of the film — Jurnee Smollett, Kim Kardashian, Lance Gross and Ella Joyce (Brandy Norwood, Perry explained, was in China on tour) — all turned out for the premiere. They were celebrated by Kanye West, NeNe Leakes, Cynthia Bailey, Kandi Burruss, KeKe Palmer, Tika Sumpter, Meagan Good, Pastor Marvin Winans and many more!

Gross brought out his new girlfriend, stylist Rebecca Jefferson, and the couple held hands as they walked about Perry’s mansion at the after party.

For his part, Perry greeted EVERY guest as they walked up the steps to his palatial estate, which included a spa, a full gym, a movie theater, a pool with a grotto, a garage that holds his motorized vehicles which include a segway and a Rolls Royce, a chef’s kitchen and more!

Kim and Kanye sat snuggled in the basement level on a couch and she introduced him as her boyfriend (it appeared this was also the first time that Kanye and Perry met), which put to rest any nasty breakup rumors. Cameras from Oprah Winfrey’s OWN were there to film behind-the-scenes footage, and Perry interviewed Kim and Jurnee poolside.

Meagan’s husband Devon Franklin just arrived in Atlanta earlier that day, and she told us she’s currently living in Atlanta shooting scenes for “Anchor Man 2!” Tika also is based in Atlanta right now, and told us she’s shooting a new series, “Haves & Have Nots.”

Guests ate dinner, drank wine and mixed drinks and mingled about throughout most of Tyler’s home — the only parts of his home that were roped off and off limits appeared to be most of the bedrooms on the top level of his home.

Good times!

Lance has been dating Rebecca for over a year now...so I wouldn't call her a 'new' girlfriend
