Issa Rae Wears A Ring And Sparks Rumors That She’s Engaged To “Longtime Boyfriend” Louis Diame

We have pictures of Rae and Diame together on the red carpet.

Published March 27, 2019

Issa Rae’s latest cover for Essence initially had folks going ga-ga over her beauty in a majestic all white ‘fit, but it was her ring finger that made the shoot go viral. On her finger was bling that looked very much like an engagement ring, which had the internet trying to track down any possible suitor that would qualify as her fiancé. 

Now whether the ring was meant as a prop (possibly for a new role) or she was wearing it because she really is engaged, is unknown, but the internet did find someone!

Louis Diame seems to be Issa’s mystery man. Very little is known about him, which makes sense since the Insecure actress and creator said this back in April 2018 in regards to her love life:

"I get so much feedback about everything," she told Maire Claire. "The one thing I don’t need feedback on is who I’m sleeping with."

Here’s what we do know about Louis Diame:

  1. Louis Diame is Senegalese

  2. He’s reportedly a businessman
  3. He and Issa Rae allegedly have been together for nearly a decade. That’s way before her fame!
  4. Issa mentions a long-time boyfriend in her book, 'The Misadventures of An Awkward Black Girl' that could very well be Louis
  5. He’s low-key, and has only been spotted on the red carpet with Issa on an extremely rare occasion
