Niecy Nash comes out, announces secret wedding

Actress and comedian Niecy Nash surprised fans when she announced she is bisexual and has a new wife.

The Claws star posted an image from her recent wedding to musician Jessica Betts, captioning it: “Mrs. Carol Denise Betts” along with #LoveWins.

This is the first time Nash has publicly spoken about her relationship with Betts, as well as her sexual identity.

Nash divorced her husband of eight years Jay Walker in 2019, and spoke of her difficulty in finding herself throughout that process.

While accepting the Vanguard Award at the 2020 Essence Black Women in Hollywood Awards Luncheon, she said: Trust that it is so much easier to walk in your truth than it is to run towards a lie. Make decisions about what you now know. You gotta own the part you play, that’s important. You gotta forgive yourself and others.”
