Kristen Wiig Dating the Strokes’ Fabrizio Moretti
Confirming months of rumors, ‘SNL’ and ‘Bridesmaids’ star Kristen Wiig made her public debut with paramour Fabrizio Moretti, drummer for the Strokes, at the New York wedding of Wiig’s ‘Bridesmaids’ co-star Ellie Kemper.
Wiig also addressed her relationship with Moretti in the new August issue of Marie Claire. “I will say that I’m happier than I’ve ever been,” she said, “and I feel very lucky right now.”
Kemper, best known for her role as flighty receptionist Erin Hannon on NBC’s ‘The Office,’ wed former ‘Conan’ writer Michael Koman. Kemper’s former ‘Office’ co-star Mindy Kaling, who left the show after the most recent season finale to star in her own series for Fox, referenced their characters’ fake band in a tweet, saying, “Today a member of the only fictional band I’ve ever been in is getting married … the lovely Ellie Kemper. Xoxo.”
Moretti, who previously triggered paparazzi flashbulbs while dating Drew Barrymore, is currently in the studio with the Strokes, where the band is working on its long-delayed, as-yet untitled fifth album. As we reported last week, rumors surrounding new Strokes material were recently confirmed by guitarist Albert Hammond, Jr.’s father. Previously, reports had suggested they were holed up in New York’s legendary Electric Lady Studios with producer Gus Oberg, who was part of the sessions for the band’s last album, 2011’s ‘Angles.’
