Is Sarunas Married?
No, the basketball player-turned-actor does not have a wife. But the questions of Sarunas being single or not still lingers in the air.
As in the summer of 2019, there were rumors of Sarunas dating actress, Zuri Adele. The two share the screen on the 2019 TV show, Good Trouble. The stories started when fans saw the pictures of the duo together on multiple occasions.
However, Sarunas cleared the air through a comment on The Shade Room's Instagram post on June 2019, where he mentioned that it was technically their on-screen alter-egos in the pictures.
It wasn’t the first time Sarunas had to clear the air via social media. Another drama involving the actor surfaced the internet in the past.
When actress Dominique Perry gave birth to her child, Sarunas also posted a picture on Instagram holding a baby. It was evident that the baby in the photos was the same.

Their daughter Zen was born in May 2018. The two met at the sets of Insecure though they never share the screen. The two were simply a one-time fling and had kept the news very secret.
Howbeit, during the happy moment, Sarunas’ alleged girlfriend Kaylen Zahara posted a video [and later deleted] on The Shade Room’s Instagram page. She mentioned that she found out about her date’s newborn as everyone else; through social media. She went on saying how all the men would take women on dates but would not tell them about their child with another girl.
Due to this drama, Sarunas commented on the same post. He said that everyone had to get the facts straight and the situation was not as it was portrayed; that he and Kaylen were cool. Later, Kaylen followed up with a comment that the air was cleared and the two are great friends.
As of 2019, Sarunas seems to be not dating anyone. But who knows what is going to happen in the future.
