Damien Dante Wayans has successfully managed to keep his personal life away from the prying eyes of the public. While his status remains unmarried, he was in a four-year relationship with a mysterious woman. Not only has he never revealed the identity of his ex-girlfriend, he also never presented any clarifications after the two separated. This obviously got the rumor mills buzzing, and certain sources even pointed towards Damian’s sexual orientation being a reason behind the break-up. (Source: www.thefamouspeople.com)
