“Men suck!”; but will Yvonne Nelson ever hook up?

Getting your Trinity Audio player ready...

Actress Yvonne Nelson is not only good for the screens and red carpet

events but also at attracting controversy, and she has done it again

by saying she is still single because "a lot of men suck!". Although

she has given reasons why she has always been single, will she ever

hook up in a relationship? Well, Yvonne, in a chat with Peace Hyde on

GHOne TV, once again insisted that she is single and that though she

has a crush on actor John Dumelo in the past, they did not date. "He

(John Dumelo) was my first crush when I first joined the industry, but

we are now friends, not just friends but best of friends now, and he

has a girlfriend somewhere," Yvonne revealed in response to a question

on whether she had ever had a crush on an industry person. This is not

the first time Yvonne Nelson is saying she is single, and it is even

difficult to believe her because of her not- too-distant-past history

with Nigerian singer Iyanya. Until the Nigerian musician went public

that he was dating Yvonne but had dumped her and moved on with his

life, she continued to tell the Ghanaian media she was single, no

matter how many times she was asked the question. After Iyanya's

revelation however, Yvonne admitted in what seemed like a sympathy-

seeking interview with Delores Frimpong Manso that she was dating the

Nigerian singer and that she felt "used" by him. The actress accused

Iyanya of pretending to have fallen in love with her only because he

wanted to use her name to climb to fame and once he achieved that

mission, and he dumped her. Yvonne said the 'Iyanya experience' taught

her a bitter lesson and she now 'pities' any lady she sees dating a

celebrity. The same Yvonne Nelson, in 2010, generated the most

controversy in showbiz circles when she denied the five different male

celebrities she was reported to have dated. Earlier reports stated

that she was head over heels in love, and in a relationship with

soccer star Derrick Boateng; and just when Ghanaians thought the

report was a truism, Yvonne Nelson made a quick claim that she and

Derrick were just close pals. "There was nothing erotic between us."

Right after the deny of her relationship with the footballer, the name

of musician-cum-TV show host, Jon Germain popped up. Jon was reported

to have confirmed that indeed he had something to do with Yvonne and

once again just when the report was sinking in, she denied having

anything to do with Jon. Till date, it is not certain whether it was

Jon or Yvonne who was speaking the truth. Yvonne again was linked to

ace musician Sarkodie, but she said the only thing she had in common

with Sarkodie was that he helped her in her campaign to raise funds to

create awareness on Glaucoma. The same Yvonne has also denied dating

Samini, and the whole episode raises doubts as to why she has been

linked to so many guys. Never before has a single Ghanaian actress

been reported to have dated a footballer and four musicians yet she

says it is all 'rubbish' even when two of the musicians have come out

to say the reports are true.
