Is Amandla Stenberg Dating A Boyfriend?

Since Stenberg has kept most part of her love life out of the media, it is hard to trace whether or not the actress is dating a boyfriend right now.

She is an aspiring actress in her mid-20s who has captured the hearts of millions and built a strong fanbase. Despite her fame, Amandla has preferred to stay quiet about her personal life, especially her romantic life.

Amanda hasn’t posted anything that would even hint at her romantic life. Nevertheless, Stenberg has been caught up in a few public relationships over the years.

Amandla’s First Known Relationship Was With Jaden Smith

Stenberg and her former boyfriend Jaden Smith were first known to have been in a relationship in 2015. The young couple had been friends long before they decided to be involved romantically.

For a long time, there was no way to confirm anything between them. However, in May 2015, Amandla and Jaden were seen attending prom together. The picture of them was posted on Amandla’s Instagram, which has since been deleted.

In fact, the last picture of them ever seen was also their prom picture. Amandla and her former alleged beau Jaden have never been seen together after that.

Stenberg First Came Out As Bi-Sexual and Then Non-binary

Amandla came out as bisexual at the age of 17 in 2016. In March of the year, she also identified herself as non-binary and then gay in June 2018.

The process of identifying yourself as bisexual or any other sexualities was as hard for Amandla as anyone in this process.

The young actress told Seventeen she had struggled with ‘internalized homophobia’ before she truly accepted herself.

She stated,

“Gender and sexuality are so fluid—it’s okay to change your mind a million times and figure out what works for you. It’s okay to take your time… I’d been out as bisexual, and people have known I’m queer for a long time. I saw some comments that made me chuckle, like, “Girl, we been knew!” But I wanted to make it very clear that I have a romantic love for women.”

Furthermore, Amandla said that she is now more happy and feels more comfortable with her accepting herself.

Amandla Stenberg Once Dated King Princess

The romantic affair between Amandla and her partner King Princess would not come as much shock since the ex-couple had made their relationship public in the summer of 2018.

Both Amandla and Princess are influential figures for young people in the LGBTQIA+ community. It is reported that the former couple met in the New York art scene. The two found common ground as they shared passions for music and acting.

The former couple would often show their love for each other through Instagram posts and mention one another in interviews. In Sept 2018, the former flames also made their red-carpet appearance at MTV Video Music Awards, in Radio City Music Hall.

Besides, the former duo worked together on Princess’ song “Talia,” which documents the gay relationship in the video.

However, a year later, the love between them started fading away and they called it quits around the end of 2019. The reason for their split is still not known as they have opted to keep it private.

Following their separation, Stenberg’s ex-partner King released an album called “Cheap Queen,” documenting their relationship. It went viral, earning her widespread fame.

Amandla’s Last Known Relationship Was With Snail Mail

Even if almost everyone knows the relationship of Amandla and Lindsey Jordan (Snail Mail), there isn’t much detail about it. Amandla and her partner Lindsey supposedly dated for almost 2 years (2020-2022).

It is rumored that Mails’ song ‘Valentine’ was made about her.

Amandla’s ex Mail, is an American indie rock singer-songwriter from Baltimore, Maryland. On the other hand, Stenberg is both an actress and singer who is set to appear in The Acolyte along with Dafne Keen, Manny Jacinto, and Dean-Charles Chapman.
