Since landing her gig on The View, Raven-Symoné has been in the news a lot lately. From spot-on opinions about Donald Trump’s bid for the Presidency; to her confrontation with conservative Candace Cameron Bure over the anti-gay bakery.
However, the one thing Raven doesn’t discuss too much is her personal life. But in a recent interview with People, she finally gave a glimpse into her relationship with model and Empire actress AzMarie Livingston.
Raven told People that she’s proud of AzMarie on the hit show.
My partner is in a show that people are going ape crazy for. I’m proud of her.”
She also wished she had more time at home with her partner – but not just because they’re in love – it comes down to their TV viewing habits.
I refuse to binge-watch shows with anyone unless it’s my partner because I need to watch it when I need to watch it. Right now, I can’t watch the rest of Suits because I gotta wait for her. I’m like, ‘I want to watch it now!’”
Raven-Symone usually keeps her private life to herself but over the past several years she has opened up more regarding her relationships and sexual orientation. In an episode of Oprah: Where Are They Now, the former Cosby Show actress told Oprah,
People in my family, they’ve taught me to keep my personal life to myself as much as possible. So, I try my best to hold the fence where I can. But I am proud to be who I am and what I am. I don’t want to be labeled gay. I’m a human who loves humans. I’m tired of being labeled.”
Raven admitted that they are not rushing anything in their relationship. Instead they are focusing on the here-and-now and enjoying their success. Raven-Symone is a cohost on The View and Livingston, who was a former ANTM contestant, is now filming Season 2 of the hit show Empire.
