Issa Rae is not married as far as we know and even if she gets hitched there's a little chance that many would actually know about it. She has made it very clear in the past that she is not keen on opening up about her love life through her interview with Marie Claire in April.
“I get so much feedback about everything. The one thing I don’t need feedback on is who I’m sleeping with.”
Because of the similarity between the lead role Rae plays in Insecure as Issa Dee and real-life Issa Rae, people often wonder if her love life at present coincides with the ongoing romance in the Tv show. When the Vogue reporter put forth the very question she reportedly waved it off.
“I don’t want any input. As a writer, you put everything on the table. I’ll take input on kids if I’m going to have kids. How do I not kill the kids? Work? Give me the input. Any other aspect of my life? Give me the input. But who I’m f*cking? No, I don’t need input. I’m good.”
Rae is known for her unapologetic candidness as this. Through this, she became famous from her role in "The Awkward Black Girl" and" Insecure". So if incorrect rumors circulate about her love life she will certainly come forth to clear things up.
In an interview with Glamour, Rae made it clear that she doesn't owe an explanation to anyone about her relationship status. She lives up to her value and is not affected by the reckless assumptions people make to steal the limelight.
"At the end of the day, all I know is my intentions. And no matter what you take out of context, no matter what pictures you post, I know what I am aligned with. I know what my truth is.”
And as long as Rae knows her truth, single or not, that's all that matters.
