After two years of quietly dating music producer Joseph Macklin, LeToya Luckett finally confirmed that the music producer is her boyfriend.
She opened up to ABC Radio about why she waited so long to be open about the man in her life.
On Waiting Two Years to Reveal She Was Taken:
“I wanted to make sure that I built a foundation before just putting it out there. You know what I mean? I wanted to make sure that this is something real, that this is something that’s true and honest and not just to have a picture to post on Instagram. I think now its one of those things of, OK, this is something real. It’s honest. It’s not perfect. It’s two people that truly, truly, truly love each other but are friends.”
Why She’s Still Hesitant to Be Open About Relationship:
“I’m still even very careful when I do decide to share those moments. And you do get anxiety because there is always the ‘what if’ and…you know how you might go about doing things if things go wrong, but then you don’t know if somebody else is going to act a fool. It’s hard. You can’t think about that. You can’t always dwell on the negative or you’ll never let the positive in.”
Why She Thinks Blogs Criticized Her for Being Private:
“[I’d be] logging onto blogs and they were like,’Yo, she never talks about her personal life, what’s wrong with her?’ And it was kind of like, ‘Why does there have to be something wrong with me for me to want to just step back and really find out what it is that I truly want and take my time with that?’ I don’t like rushing into stuff and that’s why I’m not in a huge rush to just throw something out there, because that’s my heart.”
