However, a few years ago, she did shed some light on the matter that now seems to have shut down all the rumors.

Is Stevie Nicks Lesbian?

‘If I were gay, the second that I knew, I would have said, "OK, everybody, this is how it is, and either you still like me or I don’t care." I think that if you are gay, you just have to say "It’s great!"’

This was the musical legend's reply back in 2014 when she sat in an interview with Out Magazine.

Nicks has always shown her support towards the LGBTQIA+ community, and even on the interview, she addresses how she has never seen gay people different than any other people.

Speaking about the gay people's support on her music, she says,

‘I can’t say that I’m so glad that gay people like my music, because I have never looked at gay people as different from any other people,’

Her reply goes on to show the considerable amount of support she has for the community. Although Nicks at times is speculated to be lesbian, she, however, is not one.

Touching onto the details of her relationship, she was once married to Kim Anderson in 1983, but the two divorced few months after their wedding. Before her marriage to Anderson, she was in two recorded relationships.

First was the male lead singer of Fleetwood Mac, Lindsey Buckingham, from 1969 to 1976. She was then in a relationship with the founding member of the Eagles, Don Henley, from 1977 to 1978.

Stevie's last recorded relationship was with Joe Walsh, an American Rock Guitarist, from 1983 to 1986.

She does not have any children from any of her relationships, but Stevie explains the reason to be her own decision. She said that she consciously chose not to have children due to the nature of her career. She said,

"My mission maybe wasn't to be a mom and a wife; maybe my particular mission was to write songs to make moms and wives feel better."

Stevie still vigorously strives to provide music to her fans, which is why she has moved away from the relationship and has not been associated with someone until now.

As of 2021, she was supposed to appear on the 2021 Shaky Knees Music Festival in Atlanta, but she canceled her five planned 2021 solo appearances due to the concern of catching COVID-19.
