Is Anne-Marie single?

Anne-Marie is notoriously private about her love life, but it’s thought that she’s currently single.

Back in 2016, she spoke about a then-boyfriend who inspired the track Do It Right.

“I can’t say because he is quite well known,” she said. “He’s in music. I can’t tell you. I honestly can’t.”

In 2018, Anne-Marie revealed that she’s attracted to both men and women, but doesn’t identify as bisexual.

“I just feel like I’m attracted to who I like,” she said.
