Elaine has a beautiful family with a partner and kids with whom she lives in a 65 acre Farm in the cornfield of Ohio. The fame of a celebrity can be overwhelming and could affect those, who prefer living like an ordinary man with a family.

"I love Ohio. ... Being famous is great, it's not like bad or horrible or anything. But it has nothing to do with who you actually are. And that's a real important lesson to learn, because I'm telling you, this can be overwhelming. So I like Ohio because it reminds me of that. It's hard to get comfortable, but I've managed to get comfortable. I still travel all the time, but it's still nice to have 65 acres to just chill out. And the idea is it'll keep you balanced."

But these rumors seem to have the least reflection of the reality, as the couple recently appeared together on 18 February for NBA All-Star Game 2018, which was held at Staples Center in Los Angeles, California.
