After that, there were rumors of a relationship with a big-name music producer, but no conclusive proof was ever found, and they remained just rumors” (Entertainment Reporter).
Although there have been occasional reports of a love affair, it has remained a mere rumor. This has been a plus for the actress.

The career of the veteran actress, who keeps her private life private, is still on the upswing.
