Issa Rae, the actress and director of the HBO series Insecure is engaged, MTO News has confirmed.

Issa and her longtime boyfriend finally decided to take their relationship to the next level. Issa has been rumored to have dates a number of Hollywood men, including Common and Kofi Siriboe.

Last year, there were rumors of a romance between Rae and Kofi Siriboe, the Queen Sugar star. The two were flirtatious on social media, per Ebony, but it appears that Siriboe has since removed all activity from his accounts. In March, he went public about his relationship with Australian supermodel Duckie Thot. He last appeared on Thot's Instagram in March, so whether or not they're still together isn't totally clear. Regardless, Rae and Siriboe are at least still friends.

But in fact, Issa has been with the same man now for over a decade. Issa's fiancé is Louis Diame - he's a businessman originally from Senegal, West Africa.


Louis was with Issa before the fame, and they have maintained a very private relationship for the last decade.

Issa inadvertently showed her ring on Instagram this weekend - and it looked very expensive and pretty. Here's what she posted:


Issa is an actress, writer, director, producer, and web series creator. She first garnered attention for her work on the YouTube web series Awkward Black Girl

She subsequently gained further recognition for creating, co-writing, and starring in the HBO television series Insecure.
