AceShowbiz – Keke Palmer hopes to keep her romance private. The “Hustlers” star recently opened up about her dating preference in her new interview for Harper Bazaar, in which she revealed that she wasn’t a fan of dating fellow celebrities.
“I don’t really do relationship stuff online, mainly because I don’t know how I would do it without looking, like, cheesy or something, you know?” she shared. “Yes, I’m a hundred percent authentic, but there is stuff that I do save for family and friends.”
She went on to add that she has a Finsta, though “sometimes I forget to post on there, ’cause I do post a lot of real moments and raw moments on my main Instagram page.” Keke then said, “But at the same time, when it comes to romance, [posting about it] doesn’t really come naturally to me, so I feel like, why force it?”
“I’ve always had the same philosophy when it comes to dating. Not that I wouldn’t give someone a try. But trying to keep my private life outside of my work life, to me, it’s easiest when you don’t date someone with the same career,” she continued. “And it’s not just romantic relationships. It’s friends too.”
“That wavering, that’s the most traumatic thing about fame. And that can really tear at your self-esteem if you let it. ‘Cause the reality is you really might be a great person, you really might be that fun to be around, you might be that lovable, but because you’re always having to protect yourself from what people may want from you, you can’t even embrace the fact that maybe it’s all true,” Keke explained.
The actress is rumored to be dating Brooklyn-based musician, Styn, after she was caught leaving several flirty comments on his Instagram page. One photo that caught Keke’s attention showed Styn modeling a denim jacket without wearing anything underneath. Jumping to the comment section of the post, Keke wrote, “You have to make a decision. Either your jacket is on or it’s off sir….”
Styn jokingly replied, “What can I say… Indecisiveness is a real thing honey.” Keke got even more flirty when replying to his comment, saying, “Not with matters of heart… clearly.” Keke even called him “my baby” in another post. Keke has yet to respond to the romance rumors.
