Actress and media maven Issa Rae is still being coy about her engagement and upcoming nuptials.

Rae is reportedly engaged to her long-time boyfriend, Louis Diame, but that’s pretty much all we know about the “Insecure” star’s love life. The privacy is intentional on Rae’s part, who told Vogue once that she doesn’t need to hear any opinions about her love or sex life from fans.

“I don’t want any input,” she said at the time.

“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 kept this same energy recently when she posted a photo from her friend’s wedding and a fan asked, “You next or nah.” Rae responded back with nothing more than an emoji.

Rumors of 34-year-old’s engagement went viral when Issa posed with her massive diamond ring in a cover photo for Essence.


Her co-star, Yvonne Orji, seemingly confirmed the news, telling Entertainment Tonight, “We’re very excited for her…The reaction was all the same, like, ‘You out here in these streets getting married, boo!?’ That was the reaction.”

Issa responded to her castmate’s comments with a simple Insta-story reading, “I didn’t confirm sh*t.”

Hopefully,  people will stop pressing her and respect her decision to keep a low profile when it comes to her love story.
