Constance Wu's Relationship Status - Is She Married?
Constance Wu is never married. In fact, she is single at the moment. However, she used to be in a relationship with her former boyfriend named Ben Hethcoat. This is her only known relationship so far and they looked adorable as a couple.

Constance was called a hypocrite for speaking out on Asian American issues and racisms. Although it felt unjust, you can never control the wrath of the internet!
Meanwhile, the lovebirds enjoyed each other's company for four years before going separate ways. Neither of them provided any statement regarding their split.
Earlier, the duo made numerous public appearances together. They were pretty active on social media appreciating each other's love but it came to an abrupt end at some point in 2016.
The couple's social media suggests they were still together in early 2016. In January of the same year, Ben posted a picture on his Instagram with the caption "Incredibly proud of my love".
Moreover, on 17th January 2016, the pair appeared together on the 21st Annual Critics Choice Awards which was held at Baker Hanger Airport, Los Angeles, California.
Later, because of some differences, which was never revealed, the couple broke up and subsequently many tweets and Instagram posts were deleted by the former lovers.
Wu's ex-boyfriend currently resides in Los Angeles, California. Meanwhile, Constance is living a happy single life. She is a strong feminist, activist, and humanitarian who never seems hesitant to speak out.
Wu's fans are wondering if this gorgeous lady gets into an adorable relationship again. It remains to be seen if/when she falls for someone or even ties the knot with a lucky man!
