However, Taye prefers to be in a relationship. He recently told Page Six, “I liked being coupled up. I want to be boo’d up at some point.” When the time comes, it seems like he may have some reservations about dating outside of his race, though.
“I don’t know if I could ever mess with a white girl now,” he said in an interview on the “Red Pill Podcast,” because he feels a backlash from Black women when he does. That comment, naturally, didn’t sit well with a lot of Black listeners.
As for whether Taye is open to dating men, you’ll have to ask him, but the actor has given no indication he is gay or bisexual. So far, his public dating history includes only women. The speculation is probably rooted in stereotypes about male Broadway actors, plus the fact he once took over the title role in Hedwig and the Angry Inch.
