Meanwhile, as of January 2019, Condoleezza Rice is allegedly single and enjoys a lavish life with her $4 million net worth.
Back in the 1970s, Condoleezza dated her then-boyfriend Ric Upchurch, a former American footballer. As reported, the couple was also engaged briefly before Rice broke up with him.
Though, none of the couples ever disclosed the reason for their separation in public.
As per Rice's biographer, lack of confidence was stated as the reason their relationship collapse.
She knew the relationship was not going to work.
Well, after the break-up, Rice's ex-fiance Ric reportedly got married to his wife and shared 4 children.
On the other hand, Condoleezza never addressed her on-going relationship.
Although no strong proof of Condoleezza's relationship after Upchurch have come up, she has been alleged of a few romantic relationships.
She was romantically linked with Canadian lawyer and politician Peter MacKay after they appeared in Nova Scotia to commemorate Canada's sheltering of Americans on 9/11 in September 2006.
The rumors got a raging pill when, following their appearance at Tim Hortons, MacKay commented that the then-U.S. Secretary Of State had slept with the window open. The comment soon was misdirected, alleging that they might have spent the night together.
However, in her autobiography No Higher Honor: A Memoir of My Years in Washinton, Condoleezza defended herself stating the rumors "kind of funny, if misdirected."
When I got home, I called Peter. ‘A girl can't be seen with you without some scandal,' I joked. Peter was kind of embarrassed. He is a good friend.
Besides this, Condoleezza was romantically linked with other foreign politicians including former British foreign minister, Jack Straw, and former Italian foreign minister, Massimo D’Alema.
Apart from this, her rumored relationship with former wide receiver Gene Washington was a major subject in 2007 after Washington escort Rice for a dinner with Queen Elizabeth II. However, the alleged duo was later confirmed as good friends only.
The speculation of Rice being a lesbian came in 2009 after former Israeli Education Minister Limor Livnat accused that Rice was in a sexual relationship with Israeli politician Tzipi Livni.
However, besides the accusations, no proof to question her sexuality ever came forward.
Also, the issue made all to recall the incident of 2007 when Glenn Kessler’s book The Confidante: Condoleezza Rice and the Creation of the Bush Legacy that stated Rice co-owned a house in Palo-Alto with Randy Bean, a documentary filmmaker, and writer.
Well, some sources cited that the relationship of the two women was more than friendship.
But until now, Rice has not talked about her sexual orientation, and without further substantial proof, her lesbian rumors remain to be a postulate.
