Rumors have been going around that Issa Rae and longtime partner Louis Diame are now engaged. Despite this detail not being confirmed, people continue to speculate and try to find clues that prove their suspicions.
It all started when the Insecure actress took to social media to share a story that showed her full support of the cruelty-free makeup industry by promoting Covergirl.
However, what really caught her followers’ attention was the fact that on that finger, she was wearing what looks like a stunning diamond ring.
And that is not all! She wore it [or maybe a different one] on her new Essence cover as well, only adding to the rumors!
But while on The View earlier today, the star seemed to address the speculations around that cover by laughing and arguing that ‘I’ve got a lot of rings on my finger. I wear jewelry, you know?’
So they’re not engaged, right? Well, it’s not that easy!
Her co-stars Jay Ellis and Yvonne Orji were at the NAACP Image Awards when they seemed to confirm the two are actually engaged after all!
While chatting with Entertainment Tonight, Orji said that ‘We’re very excited for her.’
Ellis then added that ‘We all found out in different ways because we are on different text chains. We talk at different times, so we found out at different times and in different ways.’
Later on, Rae tweeted: ‘Oh wow, I don’t want this,’ supposedly about the attention her relationship status is getting.
Rae has been trying to keep her love life as private as possible.
Last year, she told Vogue when asked if she was dating during an interview that ‘I don’t want any input. a writer, you put everything on the table. I will take input on kids if I am going to have kids. How do I not kill the kids? Work? Give me all the input. Any other aspect of my life? Yes, please. But who I am f***ing? I’m good.’
