But recently, Lyte has revealed that she has found true love with a man. According to reports the two have since gotten married, with the rapper taking to social media to share her wedded bliss with her 500k Instagram followers. Photo: Licensed Getty Images

The rap legend posted a picture of herself and her new hubby (below), who she described as a gift from God. “What can I say, except thank you Lord!! It’s been a long time, this singe life, and I thank you all for your prayers and kind words of hope.” the rapper wrote. Photo: Licensed Getty Images

Lyte added: “God has sent me true love. For all of you waiting on LOVE- don’t give up – keep God first and he will see that you meet your match. #godisall.”

Many fans left their congratulations under MC Lyte’s picture, while others left their shock at the union. But it’s interesting to note, that when it comes to female rappers of a particular age, it’s not unusual to hear whispers and rumors of lesbianism. Missy Elliott, Da Brat, and Queen Latifah are just a few of the famous emcees who have received the same treatment. Photo: Licensed Getty Images

MC Lyte, who’s career really took off in the ’80s and ’90s, was also one of those female rappers who people often assumed was a closet lesbian. She was linked to Tichina Arnold of “Martin” fame, and Tyler the Creator even joked about her being a “dyke”  a few years ago. Photo: Ebony magazine

Just last year, MediaTakeOut reported that MC Lyte and singer Janelle Monae were having a secret affair with the pair reportedly ‘so in love’ with each other they were trying for a baby using a male donor. Photo: Pulse NG

The site claimed the soul singer and Lyte had been sharing a suite at Manhattan’s Greenwich hotel on-and-off for the past month. The two allegedly hit it off after meeting at the BET’s “Black Girls Rock” show. Photo: The Source
