Morgan Wade‘s sexuality recently became a subject of interest following rumors of her friend’s marriage reportedly ending. She had gotten close to Kyle Richards since 2022, and now with Kyle Richards’ alleged pending divorce, fans speculate if both of them are romantically involved.
At the beginning of July 2023, an insider close to “Real Housewives of Beverly Hills” star Kyle Richards and her husband, Mauricio Umansky, blew the whistle on their reported divorce. The insider claimed the couple had been “separated for a while.”
This person added that despite the split, Mauricio Umansky and Kyle Richards remained “amicable” while living under the same roof and figuring out what was next in their relationship. The couple immediately addressed the allegations with a joint statement on Instagram.

“Any claims regarding us divorcing are untrue,” they declared. Umansky and Richards admitted that 2023 had been the most challenging year for their marriage but were working on their issues privately.
They also requested, “While it may be entertaining to speculate, please do not create false stories to fit a further salacious narrative.” Many assume this statement alluded to rumors of an extra-marital affair on Richards’ end with her friend, Morgan Wade.

Kyle Richards Denied Being Romantically Involved with Country Singer Morgan Wade
Wade gained recognition for her musical talent in 2021 with the release of her debut album “Reckless.” She met the actress in 2022 after the reality TV star “stalked” her on social media after listening to her music.
Afterward, they continually appeared on each other’s Instagram timelines. They grew close and even got matching tattoos. When the news of Richards’ reported divorce broke, paparazzi caught up with her and asked about her relationship with Wade.
“We are very good friends,” she responded. When asked about their matching tattoos, she showed the reporters her matching ink with her friend Teddi Mellencamp, who was accompanying her. “She’s not the only one I have matching tattoos with,” she said of Wade.
Fans Speculate Morgan Wade Is Gay
Given how close Wade had become to Richards and how the artist carried herself, one fan took to Twitter, writing, “Is Morgan Wade gay or are people assuming she is because of the way she looks?” Another wrote, “Is Morgan wade even gay lolllllllllll. (sic)”
Back in 2011, one person seemed convinced the singer wasn’t gay, saying, “if Texas wins the world series the only thing not gay to ever come out tx is morgan wade! Morgan=not gay, rangers and rest of state=way gay. (sic)”

Morgan Wade Has Yet to Confirm Her Sexuality
Despite the speculation seemingly going back to the early 2010s and arising once more, Wade has yet to confirm if she is part of the LGBTQ community. It is worth noting, however, that some sources claim she has an ex-girlfriend named Kady Cannon.
On the other hand, her rumored beau has been married for nearly three decades. Umansky is Kyle Richards’ second husband after Guraish Aldjufrie. She had a daughter from her first marriage, Farrah Brittany, and welcomed three more, Alexia, Sophia, and Portia, with Umansky.
