American journalist Suzanne Malveaux- who is rarely seen with a man- has always been suspected as a gay, but the truth has always remained hidden from the public. However, after she adopted herself a one-week-old daughter, the gay rumors resurged.

The Michigan native is an award-winning journalist, who works at CNN as a national correspondent covering politics, national news, international events, and more.

Suzanne’s Net Worth & Career: New England Cable News, NBC, CNN

From a successful career as a journalist, Suzanne undoubtedly boasts a substantial net worth. However, the exact figures remain unrevealed. What is known is that as a CNN national correspondent, she earns the salary of $150 thousand per annum. 

Starting her career as a general assignment reporter for New England Cable News in 1992, Suzanne went on to work for NBC News as a reporter in Washington and later in Chicago.

In NBC, she covered major stories like Bill Clinton’s impeachment, the 2000 presidential elections, and 9/11 attacks.

But it wasn’t until she joined CNN in 2002 that her career reached its height: touring with presidents, George W. Bush and Barack Obama, traveling to Europe, Latin America, Africa, and the Middle East.

In the year 2011, the Harvard graduate joined US troops in Afghanistan on the occasion of the 10th anniversary of 9/11 and successfully covered Taliban attacks on the American embassy.

Her bold and concise form of journalism has been honored with Gracie award, Peabody award, DuPont award, and television’s most exceptional, the Emmy award.

Suzanne Malveaux's Bio: Height, Ethnicity (Black but not Black)

If one is to look at Suzanne's appearances, people probably won’t say that she is a woman of color- with a fairer complexion that could be mistaken for tanned white skin and naturally brown hair.

However, she identifies herself as a black when in actuality, she comes from Louisiana French Creole ethnicity; derived from the French, Spanish and African descent. Her parents are prominent African American doctor, Floyd J. Malveaux, and school teacher, Myrna Maria Ruiz.

She has been recognized by The Root- a website dealing with news and issues of black people- as the “most influential young African Americans.”

Suzanne stands a little below the average height of American women.

Is Suzanne Marveaux Married? Gay Rumors!

Since Suzanne is rarely seen dating any men (or women for that matter), people have always assumed that she might be a lesbian.

After CNN's Anderson Cooper came clean as a gay— CNN's Don Lemon had done so a year prior than that—people started speculating that Suzanne Malveaux might be the next CNN employee to disclose her preference for the same sex partner.

The unmarried journalist didn't come out with a same-sex partner, but she did next best thing for the rumor mill: she adopted a new-born girl, while, as far as the public knew, still unmarried and without a partner.

Why is Suzanne Malveaux Adopting Without Partner?

The thing that often eludes the grasp of the 'fake news' media is that for a woman with a strong sense of independence like Suzanne's, the necessity for a partner might not be all that important. The adoption of a daughter might merely mean that she wants a child but hasn't found the right partner yet.

Regardless of her sexual orientation, with a gigantic salary from CNN enough for both herself and her daughter, Suzanne doesn't seem to need to get married or even have a partner-- as long as she has her little girl by her side!
