Laverne Cox, 49, admits she is ‘super happy’ to be off dating apps

Laverne Cox is currently off the market and loving it.

The Orange Is The New Black alum, 49, who has been in a relationship for the better part of a year, recently admitted that she is ‘super happy’ to be off dating apps.

She spoke on the subject after coming across across a tweet that seemed to suggest that she was back on the app Hinge after having a prior ‘ban’ overturned.

‘Guess you gotta be a high profile trans woman like @Lavernecox to get a @hinge ban for being trans overturned,’ wrote the Twitter user, who quickly earned a response back from Cox. 

‘I have a bf now and haven’t been on the apps in over a year,’ the actress/activist wrote, before sharing some insight into her prior experience with Hinge.

‘But after being reinstated on @hinge I was banned again. Not sure why,’ she revealed.

‘I wasn’t really meeting guys on Hinge anyway. So I just didn’t bother to look into it.. Met my bf on Tinder,’ she revealed, before adding that she is ‘super happy to be off the apps.’

Though she has kept her relationship with her boyfriend relatively private, Laverne did share on the Ellen DeGeneres Show in late January that she is happier than ever. 

‘Laverne is in love again. It feels amazing. Love is an incredible thing. It’s literally this chemical thing that’s awesome,’ she gushed, while appearing virtually on the talk show.

Speaking specifically of her boyfriend, she described him as ‘a really great guy.’

Laverne continued: ‘I didn’t expect it. I thought he was just going to be this hot dude I was going to be hanging out with, and then it just kind of happened.’

The former RANSform Me co-host did not reveal her man’s name during the appearance but did confess that they’ve exchanged ‘I love yous’ with each other, beginning last November or December.

Cox previously dated Kyle Draper, the CEO of Mateo Sound, for two years before going their separate ways in June 2019, and Jono Freedrix for several years before that, from 2014 into 2018. 

Confessing to have met her boyfriend on Tinder, the dating app boasts more than 75 million monthly active users, and has recorded more than 65 billion matches worldwide, as of 2021.   

On Friday, Cox thought she’d have some fun and posted a video of herself moving to the groovin’ of the 1980 song, Hot lunch Jam from the iconic Fame soundtrack. 

‘#throwback #Mashup My #rockyhorrorpictureshow audition video with this iconic song from the film Fame. #Nostalgia #TransIsBeautiful,’she wrote in the caption.

Cox first gained widespread recognition by playing the role of Sophia Burset on the Netflix series of Orange Is the New Black, beginning in 2013.

With her performances, she went on to become the first transgender person to be nominated for a Primetime Emmy Award in any acting category, and the first to be nominated for an Emmy Award since composer Angela Morley in 1990.         

She would again be recognized for her work in 2015 when she won a Daytime Emmy Award in Outstanding Special Class Special as executive producer for Laverne Cox Presents: The T Word, making her the first transgender woman to take home the trophy.

Cox’s career path again paved the way for those coming up behind her when she became the first transgender person to play a transgender series regular on US broadcast television as Cameron Wirth on the CBS drama series Doubt.

The show, which ran for one season, from February through August of 2017, also starred Katherine Heigl, Dulé Hill, Dreama Walker, Kobi Libii, Steven Pasquale, and Elliott Gould.
