Disney Star Issues NDA’s For Romantic Relationships

On-screen her entire life, Disney star Raven-Symoné grew up in a different world than most of us. Fans will remember her adorable character Olivia Kendall from over 70 episodes of The Cosby Show. Raven was only three years old at the time!

As a child, she had various other outstanding acting roles while also pursuing a singing career. Then The Walt Disney Company gave her her own show, eventually titled That’s So Raven (2003).

Since then, she’s had a successful career as a singer, continued to work as a Disney Channel star, and voiced Tinker Bell’s Pixie Hollow fairy friend Iridessa. In 2017, Disney rebooted That’s So Raven with Raven’s Home which currently has six seasons! Raven-SymonĂ© reprised her quirky, psychically powered role and has had much praise.

It seems that her on-screen success may have come at the price of her off-screen romantic endeavors. People.com reported that on Howie Mandel’s podcast, Raven revealed that she has made every one of her romantic partners sign an NDA –  a nondisclosure agreement.

Here’s what she had to say:

All of my relationships, especially – obviously – when I started dating, I had to get people to sign NDAs. It took me a while to wrap my head around it because it’s very impersonal, but someone in our position needs to do that…Welcome to being a celebrity in Hollywood nowadays. It’s true though nowadays, hashtags, real life, they change the dynamic of having an intimate relationship with somebody.

Now 37 years old, Raven has been happily married to her wife, Miranda Pearman-Maday, since 2020. Raven was dragging her feet to pop the NDA on Miranda, but two months into their relationship, Raven’s mom had been pressuring her to get it done.

On the podcast, she said, “I was really reluctant because I knew something was different about Miranda.” Also, an actress, Pearman-Maday, understood and signed.

If you’re curious when Raven would normally issue NDAs in her previous relationships – so was Mandel. When he asked, she answered laughing, “Before the naughty times come. No, I’m serious — right before naughty time comes.”

About Lana Porter

Lana has never lost a Disney Trivia night. Maybe it’s the hundreds of times she’s been to Walt Disney World Resort in Florida, her love for Disney’s ’90’s era hand-animated musicals, or the fact that she’s often likened to cartoon characters, but Disney and its magic have a special place in her heart. Her favorite Disney experiences include the EPCOT Food and Wine Festival, eating Mickey Bars on the PeopleMover, and crying during the Magic Kingdom fireworks show. One day she hopes to be chosen as the rebel spy on Star Tours. When Lana isn’t Park Hopping, she’s at home reading books of all topics, watching her favs on Disney+, or snuggling her two cats, which she swears are not named after Disney characters. She loves surprising people with her knowledge of the Marvel Cinematic Universe but admits she is still catching up with Star Wars. She is happy to combine her excitement for writing with her love for Disney-style storytelling and share what she can with the world!
