‘Insecure’ Actor Jay Ellis Defends His Interracial Relationship to A Critical Charlamagne [Video]


‘Insecure’ star Jay Ellis recently sat down for an interview on The Breakfast Club where he was forced to defend himself to a very critical Charlamagne over his interracial relationship with model Nina Senicar. 

The actor, who plays Lawrence on Issa Rae’s hit HBO series ‘Insecure’, was aired out by Charlamagne for having a white girlfriend despite being a popular character on a hit Black television series.


Charlamagne asks Ellis if he’s afraid that he might face backlash for the relationship because he has a predominately black female fan base.

The ‘Insecure’ actor said this about his interracial relationship.

“I am in a relationship. I’m in a very happy relationship and that’s where I leave it. I don’t really worry about anything else and that’s it. I think for me, we give so much of ourselves in what we do no matter what side of the industry we’re on so for me…a relationship for me is probably the most important thing that I think two people can have.

Jay Ellis also talks about his character on ‘Insecure, when cheating is justifiable, HIV Awareness & more.
