Wek who has her own line of couture fashion accessories and handbags with a brand label "Alek Wek 1993 Ltd.", is currently single and not dating anyone.
This means that she's definitely not married and super busy in her modeling ventures and awareness campaigns in her home country, Sudan.
The duo met during Italian Fashion Week where Riccardo instantly fell for Alek's long legs and outstanding smile.
The duo dated for 12 long years and most of us even expected them to tie the knots. But unfortunately, the pair broke up in 2013 as she revealed about it in an interview with Marie Claire.
On that interview, she also revealed how she felt about her complexion and felt ugly. During that time super runway models like Iman, Grace Jones, and Naomi Campbell were most popular and black models were only ever considered worthy of catwalks, commercials, cosmetic brands, and magazine covers if their hair was relaxed and their complexions light.
