Philip Seymour Hoffman girlfriend: Who is Mimi O'Donnell?

Philip Seymour Hoffman had a girlfriend for many, many years but because of his private lifestyle, no one knew much about her. The actor has been dating Mimi O'Donnell and some reports suggest that the couple lived together -- they also had three children together. On Feb. 5, The New York Daily News reported that a bogus report about Hoffman being gay has already caused a lawsuit.

"There was no interview. [David] Bar Katz and Hoffman were never lovers. Bar Katz did not see Hoffman freebasing cocaine the night before he died or at any other time. Bar Katz never saw Hoffman use heroin or cocaine," said Katz’s lawyer in the paperwork filed in court (the lawsuit is against The National Enquirer).

Philip Seymour Hoffman's girlfriend may or may not have still be with the actor but the two worked together to raise their three children, Cooper, 10, Tallulah, 7, and Willa, 5. On the morning that Hoffman's body was found, he was supposed to pick up his kids from O'Donnell's apartment in New York. When he didn't show, David Bar Katz went to his home and found him on the bathroom floor, a needle still stuck in his arm (Hollywood Life).

As previously reported, Hoffman's girlfriend and his mother were both seen at a New York funeral home earlier this week. It is believed that both women made arrangements for his private wake and funeral.

Philip Seymour Hoffman's girlfriend is said to be distraught and is focusing on the couple's children as they go through this terribly tough time as a family.
