‘i’m Being Honest About Who I Love’: Niecy Nash on Sexuality
The news of Niecy Nash’s marriage to musician Jessica Betts prompted the singer to talk openly about her sexual orientation.
Gender has nothing to do with it, says Nash. “It’s all about her soul,” he continues. The most beautiful person I’ve ever met, she’s a rare find.
Because she had previously been married to two men and never publicly disclosed her sexuality, many admirers were surprised when Nash released a picture of the wedding on social media. She opened up about how she was feeling at the time.
When Nash was still married to her second husband, Jay Tucker, the two initially met on social media in 2015. My relationship with [Jessica] was more of a friendship than anything more. She divorced Tucker in October of this year, and things began to change.
“I loved her before I was in love with her because she is such a unique individual,” Nash said. As a result, our relationship took on a new meaning for both of us. When you’ve been hurt by love, it’s easy to run away from it. Having said that, I’ve come to realise that magic can strike at any time.
Twenty-four of Nash and Betts’ closest friends and relatives gathered at their California home on August 29, 2020, to celebrate the occasion. Nash is clearly in the honeymoon period now.
In the distance, Nash could see his greatest love: “I’ve got my feet up, I’m staring at the ocean, and I’ve got the greatest love of my life.” “I’m overjoyed.”
There Is No Doubt in Niecy Nash’s Mind that She Isn’t Bisexual.
Nicole Nash says that she was not “coming out” of the closet when she married Jessica Betts, a hot gay singer.

She revealed her new name and dating status in a social media post last month.
In an Instagram post, she referred to herself as “Mrs. Carol Denise Betts.”
