Marlon Wayans opens up on why he never got married. 

The 51-year-old comedian revealed in an interview that he didn’t want his mother to be jealous of his potential wife. “My mother’s death broke me. It shattered me into a million pieces, because that was my girl,” he said. “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.”

He explained that he understood his mother’s jealousy. “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 [to her]. I said, ‘Take that to heaven with you.’”

In the same interview, Wayans opened up about his daughter’s transition. “I’m working on a beautiful hour about that- about the transition. I went through it, and the transition wasn’t about their transition. It was my transition- going from opposing what they wanted to complete acceptance.”

We reported that Marlon Wayans had a hard time embracing his child’s transition but had a plan about talking about it in a comedy special.
