When actress Niecy Nash announced her marriage to singer Jessica Betts on August 31, 2020, her fans were more than a bit surprised.
While some saw it as a coming-out post, as Nash had never discussed her sexuality publicly. Today (September 09, 2020), she clarified that it was more of a “going into” herself revelation.
“[My marriage] has absolutely nothing to do with gender and it has everything to do with her soul,” Nash, who divorced her second husband Jay Tucker in March, says of Betts. “She is the most beautiful soul I have ever met in my life.”
“I was not suppressing my sexuality my whole life,” she adds of her decision to marry Betts, which came as a shock to fans. “I love who I love. At one point in my life, I married twice and I love those people. And today I love this person. I’ve done everything I wanted to do on my own terms and my own way. So my choice now in a partner has nothing to do with who I’ve always been. It’s a matter of who I am in this moment.”
“I don’t feel like my marriage is my coming out of anywhere, but rather a going into myself and being honest about who I love,” she shares. “And I’m not limiting myself on what that love is supposed to look like.”
