Elise Neal Husband & Married
Elise doesn't have a fairytale when it comes to her love life. She was once engaged to American director F. Gary Gray. However, the two couldn't get to their husband-wife status and broke off their engagement.
After that, Elise didn't open up about her romantic involvements, or she was possibly single. There was a time when tweeted that she was not married but engaged. She didn't miss the chance to say that she was married in her mind for three years. The tweet must have been from the time when Elise was engaged to her then-husband-to-be, F. Gary Gray.
On a recent note, Elise made a post where she mentioned her boyfriend on Twitter on 28 April 2018. She never made the mentioning of a boyfriend clear. Fans were taken aback because they thought that Elise was relishing her single life.
