Cicely and Davis were married for seven years before they separated from one another in 1988. Also, the jazz icon passed away sadly on September 28, 1991, in Santa Monica, CA, USA, leaving behind a legend and inspiring several upcoming young musicians to look up to.
There were rumors of violence against Cicely Tyson, as well as infidelity during their relationship but despite that, Cicely said she cherished every moment with Davis.
Cicely said in her words,
“I don’t really talk about it. No, I don’t. But I will say this. I cherish every single moment that I had with him.”
“But they say it was tumultuous, that it was difficult.”
“What do they know? They are assuming that it was because of the kind of reputation that they perceived was this man. You know? I knew a side–”
“The reputation wasn’t good. The alcoholism, the drugs, that he was abusive to you–”
It is not easy to get over someone who we have loved and have spent years of our life. And thus, it may not have been easy for Cicely as well to get over the thoughts of Davis, and as a result, she decided not to marry after her relationship with Davis.
Moreover, for those who wonder is she has any children in her life, the answer might be a no as she neither had a baby with Davis, nor was she indulged in any relationship after her marriage ended. People often speculate her having a daughter, but this is yet to be verified and confirmed by the actress herself.
