R&B Singer Brandy: I've Been Celibate for Years

| by Kate Wharmby Seldman

On the October 11 episode of "Dancing with the Stars," Brandy revealed she hadn't been intimate with a man in six years. "I don’t feel sexy unless I’m in love,” Brandy said on the show. “Since I haven’t been with anyone in six years, I don’t feel so sexy.” Now she's clarifying those comments in an interview with Life and Style.

"I haven't been with a man seriously and in love in six years," the pop and R&B star told the tabloid. "And, honestly, I tend to abstain if I'm not in a relationship." She hasn't abstained from sex for the whole six years, but, she says, "It's been a long time. We're talking years."

Brandy has one daughter, Sy'rai, who was born in 2002. Sy'rai's father is producer Robert "Big Bert" Smith. Brandy and Smith were thought to be married, but when they split up, Smith revealed they actually never legally tied the knot. Brandy also dated Kobe Bryant, who took her to his high school prom, and Boyz II Men's Wanya Morris. She was engaged to basketball player Quentin Richardson from 2004 to 2005, during which time she got a tattoo of his face on her back. After they broke off their engagement, she later had the tattoo changed into a cat.

Brandy's currently a contestant on "Dancing with the Stars." Her partner is Maksim Chmerkovskiy. On Oct 19, the couple received that episode's highest score for their quickstep to the "Friends" theme.
