Love life and boyfriend
Corinne is highly secretive when it comes to her love life, and hasn’t spoken of any boys (or girls) whom she has perhaps been with. Most people believe that she’s simply focused on her acting career, rather than pursuing love, but there are others who believe something else.
A couple of Corinne’s fans have claimed that the popular actress might be lesbian, and that this could be the reason behind her hiding the details of her love life; a fan has even claimed to have seen Corinne holding hands with a girl who could perhaps be her girlfriend, however, no evidence has been provided to support these claims, nor has Corinne commented on them.
There are also some who believe that she’s today in a relationship with a non-celebrity boy, and that she prefers to keep the relationship away from the media’s attention, but this hasn’t been confirmed either.
