AceShowbiz - Following his rise to fame with his role on HBO's drama "Insecure", Jay Ellis' private life is also scrutinized by public. Now, his fans have found out that he apparently has been in a longtime relationship with Serbian model Nina Senicar, which surprised them as she never appears on his social media page.
This leads to the allegation that the black actor has been purposefully keeping "his white wife off his Instagram page" for work. "Nah I just can't get over I just know for a fact Jay Ellis publicist be telling him to keep his white wife off his Instagram page," one person alleged on Twitter.
"He is married to a white woman???? Omg," another asked in disbelief, while another expressed shock as saying, "Yo y'all knew Jay Ellis had a white wife bc EYE did not." A fourth speculated that Nina was nowhere to be found on Jay's social media channels because "he has a black women [sic] fanbase it don't work lol..everyone hide they white partners cause of this."
Seemingly agreeing, someone else alleged that "she's bad for business," while another supported the argument as claiming that "the entire black community will roast you for not having a black partner."
Blaming his publicist, one other wrote, "AND nobody is against interracial couples, my shock is in response to the original tweet of him being told by PR not to post bec of the fan base he has & the show he's on.. how have we been following him for 5 years & never seen this woman on his socials this is just funny."
Another person appeared to mock Jay as writing, "He's not hiding his yt wife, he's hiding the world from his yt wife or whatever Drake said."
Jay and Nina are reported to have been dating since 2015, but never confirmed that they are married yet. They welcomed their daughter, Nora Grace, in November 2019. There is no confirmation whether they're still together now as Nina herself has never featured the "Escape Room" star on her Instagram page.
However, in 2017, Jay admitted that he's in a relationship, but preferred to keep it private. "I am in a relationship. I'm in a very happy relationship and that's where I leave it," he said. "I don't really worry about anything else and that's it. I think for me, we give so much of ourselves in what we do no matter what side of the industry we're on so for me…a relationship for me is probably the most important thing that I think two people can have."
