Keke Palmer dished with Seth Meyers

Palmer is an actress, singer, and television host with a knack for witty one-liners. Although she keeps busy with her co-hosting duties on GMA: Strahan, Sara & Keke, as well as her successful acting career, Palmer has a new gig to promote.

When she appeared on Late Night with Seth Meyers, to plug her new project, the conversation was authentic, funny, and pure entertainment gold. Meyers fired questions at Palmer about her new social media-themed dating show, Singled Out, which she co-hosts with Joel Kim Booster. But to the delight of viewers, Meyers shifted the interview questions to Palmer’s dating philosophy.

What is Palmer’s dating deal-breaker?

With her new show in mind, Meyers asked Palmer if she has any dating deal-breakers. The star responded without hesitation, saying:

Oh, yes. Deal-breakers for me in love? Oh yes, honey. You’ve got to have something going on because I have stuff going on. So I can’t be like doing all my stuff and then call you, and you’re just sitting there waiting for me. That’s too much.

Palmer went on to quip, “He has to have something to do because otherwise, it’s just like codependent, and he’s gonna start asking me for money because he knows I got it. It’s too much.”

The charismatic television personality seemed firm on her rules about choosing with whom she dates. Meyers’s audience applauded Palmer’s dating logic, and her contagious laughter appeared to spread throughout the studio.

Based on her history, it appears that Palmer has other dating policies. In October of 2019, The Bachelorette contestant, Mike Johnson, appeared as a guest on GMA: Strahan, Sara & Keke. While on the show, Johnson took a chance and asked Palmer out during his interview. Palmer declined to respond at the time but later passed on the invitation. She offered this explanation on a later episode of the show:

Well, first of all, I get real spooked about entertainers or reality or…I don’t know; it really scares me to date people in the industry. That’s number one. Number two, he asked me in front of everybody. I felt totally like “no!” I felt ambushed. I felt like it was a big ol’ gag. You know, I felt like I was the gag. I’ve been duped!

Palmer, who tends to keep mum about private details, did not reveal to Meyers whether or not she currently has a special person in her life. However, it is rumored that she is linked to Styn, a musician from the Netherlands. Fans seem to approve of the supposed pair, but neither Palmer or Styn have confirmed that they are dating.
