Does Angelique Bates Have A Husband Or Dating A Boyfriend?

The American actress-turned-comedian is famous for her expressive and bold talks on her stand-ups. However, her preference has changed over the years regarding her relationship- from one wanting to share her love life on social media to a reserved person.

So, what’s up with her relationship status? Surfing through Bates’ social handles, no hints of her dating life or her boyfriend are on display. Even if she is in pictures with many singing and acting icons at various events, none of her connections are romantic.

Many sources alleged that the ’35 and Ticking’ actress is single as there is no evidence of her dating life.

Angelique Bates’ Cheating Allegation On Ex-Boyfriend Made Waves

In December 2018, Angelique Bates and her then-boyfriend, Kevontay Jackson, an LA-based actor, gathered public attention after she accused him of cheating with her best friend. The issue gained worldwide interest after they took it to the reality TV show Couples Court With the Cutlers.

Bates’ best friend, Deja Prince, also came on the show and clarified that she had no romance with her boyfriend. Later, a forensic voice analysis proved that Kevontay didn’t cheat her with Angelique’s best friend.

However, during the test, when asked if Jackson had a physical relationship with other women, the warning bells hit. Even so, in conclusion, the two later decided to give another try to build trust and went for a couple of counseling.

During the conversation on the reality show, the duo talked about their courtship. As reported, Bates met Kevontay 20 years before the incident (i.e., around 1998) at an event when she was a host, and Jackson used to sing in the group 3rd Storee.

It was love at first sight for her; it was not until two years later that they again crossed paths when she was doing a stand-up. In the turn of events, the two even had a “physical relationship,” but it didn’t lead their bond anywhere.

Fast-forward to nearly two decades, Angelique and Kevontay met again at an event in the mid-2010s; their old feelings for each other poured in, and they began dating.

No, the duo is not together anymore. Even if Angelique and Kevontay agreed to therapy to reconcile their relationship after the cheating allegation drama in late 2018, it seems it didn’t work out.

While the two never made their separation public, it is evident that the two have broken up. The former couple do not follow each other on Instagram or have posts featuring affection for one another on their social handles.

In January 2024, Bates addressed parenthood and mentioned her kids during her stand-up comedy at The Hollywood Comedy. She said she is the mother of two—a 16-year-old son and a 15-year-old daughter.

Angelique remains cautious about keeping her children off the media limelight concerning their privacy as they enter teenage.

Who Are Angelique Bates’ Parents? Mother Apologized To Her

Bates was born to parents with African-American roots. Her mother is D. Bates, who landed her into a Borax commercial as a toddler and later into the theater, which followed the TV screen journey.

Some outlets reported that Bates faced verbal and mental abuse at the hands of her mother on the set of All That, but she clarified her mom’s image during an interview with The Blast in March 2024:

“I never said my mother verbally and emotionally abused during production. It was Nickelodeon that verbally and emotionally abused me.”

Angelique Bates Is Outspoken About Abuses: Why Didn’t She Join ‘Quiet on Set’?

The 2024 docuseries ‘Quiet on Set: The Dark Side of Kids TV’ made buzz worldwide after various Nickelodeon former child actors, including Drake Bell and Raquel Lee, shared their negative experiences. So, many were concerned about why she (a former child actor) was not a part of the series.

In response, Angelique, who had been vocal about her experiences for years, stated that she was a no-show and didn’t receive a positive reaction when she opened up about the dark reality of Nickelodeon earlier.

With that being said, Bates, the first black female cast member of ‘All That,’ shows no fear in speaking the truth about her experience on that TV show in her interviews.
