Tracee Ellis Ross says she is "happily single" as she currently has a "productive relationship with loneliness".

The "High Note" star isn't currently dating anyone after a long history of failed relationships with emotionally unavailable men.

Tracee spent much of the Covid-19 lockdown by herself - but she insists she's more than happy with her single relationship status.

"I am happily single, though that doesn't mean I am not open to and don't want a relationship," she tells Shape magazine. "But in my wonderful and robust experience of being single, I have learned to have a productive relationship with loneliness and an intensely juicy relationship with my joyful solitude — I really enjoy my company."

The actress, who was briefly linked to "Black-ish" creator Kenya Barris last year, explained, "One of the things that's been lovely to discover is how I care for myself and how I actively love myself. And I believe that love is an action: You get back what you put in."

The 47-year-old added: "I used to spend so much time trying to be perfect, to get it perfect. But that’s not realistic. Bad feelings come up."

Tracee was linked to Akon's brother Bu Thiam in 2012. Bu is now linked to industry boomerang Lori Harvey.
