Although Elliot has never married and explicitly spoken about her sexuality. 

But till now, we have seen Ellioott being linked to many female celebrities including Olivia Longott.

Still, if we are talking about the early 2000s, Elliott was only dating men.

In an interview with The Guardian in 2003, she said that she had dropped her standards when dating men.

She revealed that she had high expectations from her men (because of her "abusive" father) and wished they were not only faithful and passionate love but also as rich as she was. 

"One day I am going to fall in love. And when that happens, it's not gonna matter if that person has money or not. I realize that now and that's in my music. Instead of it being about, 'Gimme money, where's my Bentley, how much is in your bank account?' it's about, 'Know what? I'd love you without all the chains and medallions,'' she shed light on her expectations in the interview. 

Missy Elliott's Dating History in Brief including Rumors

According to details reported by Bustle, Elliott previously rumoredly 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.

In 2010, Olivia spoke to DJ Diamond K and said that she was saddened when her friend 50 Cent made a joke about her relationship with Elliott. 

Talking with The Breakfast Club, Olivia also revealed that Cent had circulated the rumor (he denies it) of her dating Elliott because he wasn't content with the fact that she did more music with Elliott than him, according to Distractify.

In addition, Elliott's friend, Real Housewives of Atlanta star Eva Marcille, admitted during Bravo's Watch What Happens Live that her relationship with Elliott was "non-confrontational" when she was asked if she had been in contact with Elliott about their dating rumors, which she denied.

There were also rumors around 2013 that Elliott 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.

In addition, Ranker reports Elliott had been linked with other celebrities such as Lil' Kim, Timbaland, Da Brat, Faith Evans, Trina, and Nicole Wray.


In 2011, Elliott was also rumored to be dating a singer Keri Helson but both of them denied the rumors. 

Elliott might not have Husband Anytime Soon

Just going by her dating history, Elliott seems more into women than men, as she has been rumored to have 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 or a wife anytime soon.

She is already 51 years old and hasn't committed to a marital bond yet.


However, these are all instinctive speculations, which might not come true as well.

Missy Elliott once said She wanted 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.

How old is Missy Elliott?

Missy was born as Melissa Arnette Elliott (birth name) on 1 July 1971 (age 51) in Portsmouth, Virginia, U.S. as the only child of father Ronnie, then U.S. marine's staff sergeant, and mother Patrica Elliot, a power-company dispatcher.


Her upbringing was religious and singing in church choir was a regular part of her youth. 

At the early age of four, Missy expressed to her parents her desire to be a performer and would perform for her family. 

Elliott's Mother Fled with Daughter Missy to escape from 'Abusive' Father

When Missy was 14, her mother Patrica fled with her to escape from the "abusive" father who physically assaulted her mother, she revealed to The Sunday Herald in 2002. 

She shared that she and her mother feared that her father would kill them for leaving.

Talking to the magazine, she recalled one violent incident that resulted in her father dislocating his mother's shoulder.

According to her, her father threatened her with a gun in another incident.  

When her father was not living with the family and was serving in the Marines, Missy had a worthwhile childhood in Jacksonville, North Carolina. 

Despite not liking studies and having been deemed a class clown, she was an ambitious and social kid with above-average marks on intelligence tests. 

But when her father returned from the Marines, Missy had to relocate with their family to Virginia.


There, the family suffered from extreme poverty and her father's alleged abusive antics made her childhood worse. 

And after her mother was successful to move to Virginia and start a new life, Missy took it upon herself to make it big in music as a tribute to her strong mother. 

She told The Guardian in 2003, "When we left, my mother realized how strong she was on her own, and it made me strong. It took her leaving to realize."

She also revealed that she occasionally talked with her father but also said that she hadn't forgiven him.
