Dating Boyfriend, Or Lesbian?
Alexandra Shipp is a woman who believes in astrology and won't start a dating life with Pisces guys. The actress, whose zodiac sign is Cancer, recalled with Elle Magazine in November 2018 that as a sensitive and emotional person, she would date everyone, except Piscean men. However, the lady loves Pisces women.
Back in 2016, she got linked with Taurus guy, James McAvoy. She sparked romance rumors with the fellow co-star of X-Men: Apocalypse after his split with Anne-Marie Duff in 2016. The tabloids buzzed with the news that she and her rumored boyfriend James had a deep friendship and were pretty much close with each other.

Although the twosome was rumored to be dating, they remained mum to address the tabloid gossips.
Before James, she often used to speak about her boyfriend in social media post. For instance, she revealed on her 2014th tweet that she was dating an Asian boyfriend.
As of now, Alexandra is likely relishing her singlehood. Her hashtag on recent Valentine's Post as "Everyone finding love and I'm just trying to quit smoking" is proof that she is not involved in a relationship. By no means, Alexandra has depicted her sexuality as a lesbian in the past and the present.
