Love life and husband
Mikey’s among the most secretive of actresses, as she hasn’t shared the details of any men (or women) whom she has perhaps been with. This is mostly why there are rumors circulating the internet, concerning both her love life, and her sexual orientation.
Many of Mikey’s fans believe that the popular actress is lesbian, and that this is why she can’t usually be seen spending time with men, and doesn’t talk about her relationships. One of her fans has claimed to have seen Mikey holding hands with a girl who could perhaps be her girlfriend, however, no evidence has been provided to support this, nor has Mikey commented on these rumors.
Others believe that she’s today in a relationship with a non-celebrity man who prefers to be left out of the media’s attention, and that they have been together for over a year now. Mikey hasn’t commented on this either.
As of June 2021, she seems to be single, hasn’t married and doesn’t have children.
Hobbies and interesting facts
Mikey’s not a fan of social media networks, and isn’t active on Instagram, as she doesn’t want to share the details of her everyday life with her fans. She prefers to reveal things about her in interviews, such as in the one she gave to “Interview Magazine”.
Mikey loves to go shopping, and usually buys everything she needs at thrift stores, however, she occasionally goes to flea markets, and buys numerous things which she doesn’t need at all.
