You Might Not See Missy Elliott Having a Husband Anytime Soon and Here’s Why
50-year-old rapper and singer Missy Elliott came through the ranks in the early-mid 1990s with R&B girl group Sista. She subsequently became a member of the Swing Mob collective, along with her childhood friend and longtime collaborator, Timbaland.
Now, she is one of the most recognized faces in the music industry and the first female rapper to be inducted into the Songwriters Hall of Fame in 2019. The same year, she was also honored with the Video Vanguard Award at the 2019 MTV Video Music Awards for her accomplishments in music.
With such humongous success and popularity, many fans are drawn towards learning about her personal life with queries like "Is Missy Elliott married?" and "Is Missy Elliott gay?" all over the internet.
But it seems like Elliott isn't bothered by all the queries, as she has rarely opened about her love life, as well as her orientation in public.
That being said, there are blogs and sources that reveal her dating history, while some details imply that we might not see the famed singer having a husband anytime soon. Scroll through as we reveal her dating history and the reason she might not have a husband!
Missy Elliott's Dating History
According to details reported by Bustle, Elliott previously dated singer Olivia Longott, who provided vocals to 50 Cent's 'Candy Shop,' for two years in the early 2000s. Even though they never confirmed the relationship, some old pictures of them from parties showed that they were close to each other.
The Portsmouth-born artist, who is a bi woman, was also linked to rappers Trina, Lil' Kim, Da Brat, and Timbaland, author Karrine Steffans, singer and co-collaborator Charlene Keys, and singer Nicole Wray. But again, she hasn't confirmed any of the rumored relationships to date.
In addition, Elliott's friend, Real Housewives of Atlanta star Eva Marcille, admitted during Bravo's Watch What Happens Live that the two were romantically together for a long time. She added that Elliott was "non-confrontational" when Marcille was asked if she had been in contact with Elliott about the rumor.
There were also rumors around 2013 that the rapper got married to fellow rapper Sharaya J; however, during an interview with Fader in 2015, Sharaya cleared the rumors saying she called Elliott her "music mother."
In the said report, Bustle claimed that the singer was not known to be dating anyone and was single as of 2019. However, it turns out the confusion around her relationship status remains the same at present, too.
No Husband Anytime Soon
Just going by her dating history, Elliott seems more into women than men, as she has dated more girlfriends in her life. And even though it might be an assumption but because of those reasons, it seems she would not have a husband anytime soon.
However, these are all instinctive speculations, which might not come true as well.
Missy Elliott Wants To Have Children
Elliott might not have opened up about her partner, but she indeed had talked about wanting to be a parent. During an interview with People magazine in 2008, she said she would "definitely" like to be a mom someday.
However, she added she wasn't interested in going through the process of natural birth, saying, "I don't know if I can take that kind of pain." Despite her statement, it is not confirmed whether she had a baby or adopted any to date.
