Louis Diame Bio, Wiki
Louis Diame is a Businessman best known for being the husband of Issa Rae, an American actress, writer, and producer. Rae first garnered attention for her work on the YouTube web series Awkward Black Girl. They pulled off a private wedding ceremony in the South of France over the weekend. Issa hilariously confirmed the news on Instagram on July 26 while sharing a series of gorgeous pictures from her “photo shoot.”
Ahead, everything we know about Diame and his low-key life with Rae. Here is what we know about the businessman.
Louis Diame Career
It’s difficult to confirm anything about his profession, although outlets such as Marie Claire and Martha Stewart Weddings have identified Diame as a “Senegalese businessman.” A LinkedIn page under the name is private but lists his profession as an Independent Banking Professional in the Greater Los Angeles Area.
Rae typically avoids talking about Diame during interviews. But eagle-eyed fans have traced the couple’s romance back to at least 2012. In a Washington Post piece about The Misadventures of Awkward Black Girl, Rae’s breakout project, Diame is identified as her “boyfriend.” The outlet also notes that he’s a 29-year-old student (which would make him about 37 now) and that he appears in episode 7 of Rae’s series.
The two were engaged in March 2019
Speculation that Rae was engaged to Diame began in March 2019, when she appeared on the cover of Essence wearing a sizable ring on that finger. People reported that the pair was set to tie the knot the following month….but they never confirmed the news themselves.
Even though there was some mounting evidence to support that Rae and Diame were engaged, neither party confirmed the news. During an appearance on The View, Rae laughed off rumors, explaining, “I’ve got a lot of rings on my finger. I wear jewelry, you know?”
Rae announced she married Diame in France in July 2021
Rae revealed she and Diame tied the knot on her Instagram on July 26, 2021, sharing photos of her strapless tulle Vera Wang wedding dress and them together on the big day. The two wedded in Saint-Jean-Cap-Ferrat, France.
According to a source, guests traveled near and far to watch the couple say “I do.” In fact, some of those lucky enough to score an invite stayed at the Jean Cap Ferrat hotel nearby.
Throughout her career, Issa has tried her best to remain mum on her personal life. While appearing in the March 2018 issue of Vogue, the actress was asked if she was dating anyone.
“I don’t want any input,” she shared with the publication. “As a writer, you put everything on the table. I’ll take input on kids if I’m going to have kids. How do I not kill the kids? Work? Give me the input. Any other aspect of my life? Give me the input. But who I’m f–king? No, I don’t need input. I’m good.”
