Michelle Rodriguez’s Relationships: Does She Have A Husband, Partner and Is She Gay?

Michelle Rodriguez does not have a husband, but she has had several partners, both men and women, and is bisexual.

Among Michelle Rodriguez’s past partners are Vin Diesel (2001), Colin Farrell (2002 – 2003), Kristanna Loken (2006 – 2007), Aleksandra Rastovic (2007), Francesca de Sola (2011 – 2014), Cara Delevingne (2014), and Zac Efron (2014). There have also been speculations that she dated Oliver Martinez (2003), Jesse Jane (2003 – 2005), and Lenny Kravitz (2005). The actress confirmed that she is bisexual back in 2013, asserting that she is too curious to be straight.

Is Michelle Rodriguez Gay? 

Rodriguez has often made the headlines for her sexual orientation. Michelle Rodriguez was first rumored to be gay in 2006 after she was romantically linked with a female co-star, Kristianna Loken. She, however, refused to address the rumors and maintained that she “would make a sex video if she wanted to share details of her sex life with the world”.

Fast forward to 2013, Michelle Rodriguez boldly came out to tell the world that she is bisexual. According to her, she finds men and chicks equally intriguing and so falls under the ‘B’ part of LGBT. She equally revealed that she came out in order to help others who may be struggling with their own sexuality. 

Michelle Rodriguez Has Never Been Married But Was Once Engaged

As the actress is approaching her mid-forties, one does not need to be told why people often ask questions about her husband, even though she has never been married.

While her popularity has made it difficult for her to keep her love life a secret, Michelle Rodriguez has maintained some air of mystery about her romantic relationships.

You would hardly see her walking the carpet with anyone, and this has almost always had people speculating about who she is dating.

In recent times, it seems she has become even more secretive about her love life, but one shouldn’t rule out the possibility that she has been single for years. The actress described herself as a “lone wolf” in one of her many interviews.

Although she hopes to have a kid someday and have a father figure for the child, Rodriguez doesn’t see herself as someone capable of having a long-lasting relationship. She said she hadn’t been able to keep a lover for more than six months and described the thoughts of having a family life as scary.

Nonetheless, she has come very close to getting married to one of her exes, a Muslim whose name has never been disclosed. The Latino actress who was raised a Jevoha’s Witness related that she liked the Muslim fellow because he respected her, and they easily got along.

He eventually proposed to her, but she rejected him because he demanded that she would begin wearing clothes that covered more of her body. The actress is known to be friends with Mohammed Al Turki, a film producer from Saudi Arabia.

Because of this, it has been speculated in some quarters that he is the person Rodriguez talked about. But as far as we know, they are just friends.
