In June the singer talked openly about her interracial relationship with Chelsea Handler.  

"I've never been the type of person to discriminate," she said. "But I honestly have to say I never thought I'd be with a white guy ever. But it just happened. It's amazing. I'm the first black girl he's ever been with too."
