He claimed that Nagra was hiding her fortune from her gigs E.R, Alcatraz, and Psych to prevent him from getting any of it.

“ When I was 18 my mother gave me a photo of a man and said I’d marry him. I told her then that I was never going to have an arranged marriage.”

Also, she had shared her perspective on the dating scene in Los Angeles. She said,

“One thing I find really bizarre about dating in Los Angeles is that you can have so many dates and it may not be a problem. Why can’t to stick to one person? Everybody’s up front about it here. They go,”I’m seeing three other people this week.”
