Brandy’s heavily publicized dating history may help us get to know her types and preferences in romantic partners. Based on the profiles of her ex-lovers, Brandy seems to prefer dating Black men.
Moreover, the Grammy-award-winning artist seems to have trouble finding long-term relationships. Because of that, Brandy has decided to refocus all of her energy to self-love:
“I’ve learned boundaries for myself. I’ve learned how to take care of myself. I learned that self-love is really what I’ve been looking for all my life, and I’ve looked for it in the wrong places.”
Is Brandy Norwood Dating Someone Now?
Since her breakup with Sir the Baptist in 2017, Brandy has maintained her bachelorette status. The 41-year-old singer revealed in an interview that she’s not interested in dating anyone anytime soon:
“You can’t love anybody unless you love yourself. I’ve really learned that the hard way. I have a love for myself now, to the point, I don’t want to see nobody else right now. I’m not trying to go down that road. I don’t want nobody having my phone number. I don’t want to go out on a date. I’m really good. I’m really good.”
She is, however, focused on one relationship and that is the one that she has with her daughter, Sy’Rai. Her daughter’s happiness remains Brandy’s number one priority as of the moment.
Sy’Rai is the product of Brandy Norwood and Robert Smith (A.K.A. Big Bert)’s romance. It can be recalled that the duo had a particularly controversial relationship after Smith himself came clean and said that their marriage was all just a show to save his image in the media.
And as for her daughter’s own love life, Brandy Norwood is just as protective with Sy’Rai as she is with her own heart:
“I am very tough when it comes to her dating… I don’t think anybody is good for her just yet. But you know, she is not out there like that.”
So, now you know the ins and outs of Brandy Norwood’s love life!
