Missy Elliott Background
Missy Elliott was born on July 1, 1971, so she’s 50 years old now. She’s from Portsmouth, Virginia, USA. Her real and full name is Melissa Arnette Elliott.
Missy seems to be her parents Patricia and Ronnie Elliott’s only child. Her dad, Ronnie, a former U.S. Marine, worked as a shipyard welder, and her mom, Patricia, was a dispatcher for a power company.
Missy went to Woodrow High School.
Ever since she was four years old, Missy wanted to become a performer, however, her circumstances were very off.
Missy’s Abusive Childhood
Missy and her parents faced extreme poverty during her upbringing. To make matters worse, her father Ronnie became violent and abusive towards both Missy and her mother.
When she was a child, Missy saw her father dislocate her mother’s arm. She also recalls a terrifying moment when her father threatened her with a gun.
Recognizing that it wasn’t safe, Missy and her mother decided to escape from Ronnie. Missy was just 14 years old at the time, but she found the courage and strength to get away with her mother.
Is Missy Woodrow In a Relationship?
The rapper Missy Elliott has openly stated that she is bisexual multiple times without any fear.
Many people are afraid to talk about their sexuality in society because they worry about being seen as taboo. But Missy serves as an example of being honest about her feelings, no matter what.
In the past, she has been linked to several people. She was in a rumored relationship with singer Olivia Longott in the early 2000s for two years, but they never confirmed it.
Adding to her dating history, she has been associated with rapper Trina, author Karrine Steffans, singer Charlene Keys, and many others.
In some cases, she has subtly responded to rumors.
For instance, when public rumor spread that Missy was dating singer Keri Hilson, she replied on Twitter, stating the rumors as false. Missy further clarified that she and Keri had never worked together and barely knew each other.
Keri Hilson also supported Missy Elliott on Twitter, calling the claims lies.
Similarly, there were also rumors that Elliott was dating Eva Marcille, a former star of “The Real Housewives of Atlanta.”
Marcille outright denied squashed the rumors during an appearance on “Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen.”
Eva mentioned that she and Missy were just friends, and they didn’t discuss the rumors because Missy is “non-confrontational.”
Is Missy Elliott Married?
Many celebrities probably get tired of constantly dealing with new rumors about them.
Missy Elliott was no exception to this.
In 2013, rumors started circulating on websites and social media that Missy had gotten married to fellow rapper Sharaya J.
Some tabloids even stated that they had been in a long-term relationship before tying the knot.
Both of them chose to stay quiet about this for two years, allowing people to believe whatever they heard. Neither of them made any effort to address the rumor.
In 2015, Sharaya finally spoke about it during an interview and said the rumor was false and had no basis. She also mentioned that Missy is like a “music mother” to her.
Who Is Missy Elliott Dating Now?
As of 2023, Missy Elliott is presumably single.
However, there still may be a slight chance that Missy is dating someone in private.
What’s even more ambiguous is that Missy is bisexual and might be dating either a man or a woman.
