The View’s Raven-Symoné has made so many waves with her on-air shenanigans lately that it’s easy to forget she’s been in a relationship with Top Model and Empire actress AzMarie Livingston for three years. But the pair has now split, Us Weekly reports.
Raven-Symoné ostensibly came out when she announced via Twitter to the world in 2013 that she could finally get married when the Supreme Court overturned Prop 8 in California. Prior to that tweet, she had remained tight-lipped about her personal life, especially in light of tabloid stories that attempted to out her.
Later, Raven-Symoné told Oprah Winfrey that she still eschewed labels, while also revealing that she was happy in her relationship. “I want to be labeled a human who loves humans. I’m tired of being labeled,” Symoné said on Winfrey’s Where Are They Now in 2014. “I’m in an amazing, happy relationship with my partner, a woman.”
While Raven-Symoné has kept her word to keep her personal life private, she did offer a rare, quotidian glimpse into her relationship with Livingston in a short interview with People this summer.”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,” the former child star shared with the magazine. “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!’ ”
Us offered no further details on the split between Symoné and Livingston, but here’s wishing them both the best.
