Carey’s rising popularity prompts curiosity about her personal life. She is openly gay or queer, using “they/she” pronouns. Is she dating someone? That remains unknown as Carey keeps her personal life private.

No reports or hints about a partner on her social media. Instagram mainly showcases her daily life, profession, and moments with friends.

Rumors circulated about her and fellow actor Rhys Bailey. They shared cute comments on each other’s posts, fueling speculations of a romantic relationship.

However, they are just good friends; Carey, being gay, would have a girlfriend if dating.

Despite the rumors, neither confirmed any romantic connection. As of February 2024, Carey isn’t dating and focuses on her acting career.

Previously, she dated musician Kellimarie Willis (Kelli Marie). Their relationship, evident on Instagram, started around May 2022.

They attended events together, shared pictures, and celebrated birthdays.

Although unconfirmed, their silence and Instagram unfollowing suggest the end of their relationship.
