Issa Rae who has always kept her personal life quiet, surprised her long-term lover, Louis Diame, by marrying him in an unusual method. The co-creator and star of HBO’s Insecure teased the news by posting a series of breathtaking bridal images of herself in a dreamy custom Vera Wang Haute gown on Instagram, calling it an “impromptu photoshoot.” The event was held in the iconic Grand-Hôtel du Cap-Ferrat.
Issa Rae New Partner
Here’s all we know so far about her new spouse and businessman for admirers who are curious. Based on his private LinkedIn page, the billionaire is purportedly an independent financial professional in the greater Los Angeles area, according to Harper’s Bazaar.
It is unknown how long the newlywed couple has been together, but Rae’s brother, Lamine Diop, revealed the pair’s connection to Us Weekly just days after the couple’s engagement was formally confirmed.
He revealed that Rae and Diame had “been dating forever” and had attended several family gatherings together. He also disclosed that the engagement occurred during the holiday season that year.
Diame appeared in Rae’s decade-long YouTube web series, Awkward Black Girl, in 2012. He played a Black man who glanced disapprovingly at Rae as she was on a date with a white man, despite being on a date with a white lady himself.
Since then, suspicions about their relationship have spread, particularly after the duo appeared together on red carpet events, including the 2016 Golden Globes after-party for Insecure’s premiere.
Congratulations to the happy couple once more.
Rae’s Personal Relationship
There were suspicions she was engaged in April 2019 after she was spotted wearing what seemed to be an engagement ring on her Essence cover. During an appearance on The View, however, the actress dismissed the rumors by noting that she has numerous rings and was wearing one of them.
Her co-stars, on the other hand, verified her engagement. When chatting with reporters at the 2019 NAACP Image Awards, Jay Ellis and Yvonne Orji appeared to announce their engagement. Orji told Entertainment Tonight that they were happy for her, and Jay added that they learned about it at various times and in different ways because they were all on separate text chains. Rae has taken extra care throughout her career to keep her love life out of the prying eyes of the public.
Interviewer Abby Aguirre questioned the actress if she was dating someone while she was featured in the March 2018 issue of Vogue. She carefully avoided the topic by explaining why she keeps her love life private.
