Following her recent breakup, the talented star is opening up on her free spirit.


Sorry to this man... but Keke Palmer might not be interested.

Over the last few years, the celeb has tackled on a slew of hit projects, generated countless hilarious memes, and shed more layers on her personal life.

Although Palmer has always hinted at being part of the LGBTQ+ community, the star is now revealing more than ever on a recent appearance on Raven-Symoné and Miranda Pearman-Maday's podcast The Best Podcast Ever with Raven and Miranda.

While chatting with the ladies, Palmer revealed that her "history with women" helped her come to terms with her sexuality.

“There was a moment in my life where I was just like... 'Can I be myself?' I just want my life be my own life," she said.

The actress also opened up on her initial feelings toward women during her teenage years, specifically around 17 or 18 years old. Although she was raised in a religious household, her parents never questioned or judged her on her interest in the same sex.

"I want to explore my life. I want to stop judging my thoughts or feeling like this isn’t something I could explore. I always liked guys too, [so it] was just another little extra thing that no-one has to really know about," she added.

"My parents never even cared about something like that or really talked about it. By the time they saw how free a spirit I was and I wanted to date whoever, they were like, 'Who cares?' It was never anything that was in their mind.”

Palmer’s personal life made headlines earlier this month when her boyfriend and father of her child, Darius Jackson, publicly called her out on Twitter for wearing a black bodysuit while getting seranaded by R&B singer Usher.

"I ultimately just feel like accepting that part of myself was my process to having love in my life, by accepting and loving all part of me.”

Keep it up Keke! We're happy to have you.
