Marlon Wayans Says He Never Married Because He Did Not Want His “Mother to Feel Second”

Marlon Wayans says he has never tied the knot because of his mother.

The actor says he never wanted his mother to feel like second place, so he never said “I do.”

“My mother’s death broke me. It shattered me into a million pieces, because that was my girl,” Wayans told the New York Times. “I never got married, because I never wanted my mother to be jealous of a woman. I never wanted my mother to feel second to any woman.”

Elvira Alethia, Waynas’ mother, passed away in July 2020. She was 82 years old.

The Hollywood actor admits that it was not the only reason he did not get married.

“That was one of five reasons,” he continued. “And Mom was very needy. I told my mother on her deathbed, ‘I never got married because I always wanted you to be my No. 1 girl.’ Those were my last words. I said, ‘Take that to heaven with you.'”
