Learn about the personal life of Camryn Grimes along with her acting career and bio-related details.
Loving Relationship Suddenly Comes To A Halt
Camryn started dating Oliver Singer, the son of television writer Steve Singer, in 2012. However, the relationship was not made public until 2014.
On 22 June 2014, Camryn and Oliver made their first public appearance attending the 41st Annual Daytime Emmy Awards held at The Beverly Hilton Hotel in Beverly Hills, California. The couple even posed for a picture and looked comfortable enjoying each other's company.

A year later, on 26 June 2015, Camryn revealed that the pair had been dating for three years and wished her partner on their anniversary while expressing her gratefulness towards Oliver. She wrote on her Instagram,
"1094 days 19 hours 2 minutes & 15 seconds spent with you. Every minute precious and every second important. I'm as grateful as ever to be able to laugh, live & love by your side. Happy Anniversary @oliver_singer!!"
The same year, the pair also attended a wedding near Lake Michigan; however, the duo didn't mention any plans of them getting married.
The couple was going strong in their relationship and Camryn regularly featured her lover on her Instagram. On 10 May 2016, she shared a picture alongside Oliver from their holidays in Sedona, Arizona.

That was the last photograph of the couple together. Camryn, who was always open to flaunt her romance on social media has not shared any more pictures after the date. While fans suspect that the pair could have broken up, neither Camryn nor Oliver has come forward to talk about their alleged breakup.
In the lack of sufficient evidence that can confirm their dating status, the actual state of the pair's relationship is hard to tell.
Goes Gay For Cait Fairbanks?
Camryn, who has lived the most of her adult life as a straight woman; surprised fans and the LGBTQ community when she kissed her The Young and the Restless co-star, Cait Fairbanks, in a 2017 episode of the show.
In the episode premiered on 3rd of August, Camryn's character Cassie and Cait's Tessa share a passionate kiss even though none of the characters are lesbian in the show. Their intimacy hinted towards a potential romantic relationship between the two, however, CBS executives refused to comment on the issue.
Talking about her prospective onscreen love, Camryn mentioned that the romance between the two characters was "spontaneous and intense". She said in an interview,
"I think with a love like theirs, it was so spontaneous and intense and so strong that it caught them both off guard. This is new territory that they are exploring, and it comes with obstacles."
The rumors that Camryn could be a lesbian in real-life grew swiftly and the actress even had to post a tweet to clear her sexuality amid the fans. On 21 July 2018, she shared a tweet mentioning that she was not a lesbian and neither a part of the LGBTQ community. She wrote on her Twitter,
"Not gay, but if I was I WOULD SHOUT IT FROM THE FUCKING ROOFTOPS. Not one part of the LGBTQ+ community is a waste. Shame u can’t see that."
This is not the first time Camryn has gone too serious with her onscreen role. Back in March 2017, she became fake pregnant to land a part in the upcoming series, The Get.
On 5 March 2017, she posted a picture on her Instagram showing her prop belly.
