'Orange is the New Black' Writer Lauren Morelli Divorces Her Husband & Begins Dating Poussey Actress Samira Wiley

Orange is the New Black writer Lauren Morelli is divorcing her husband and is now dating Samira Wiley, who plays the beloved character of Poussey on the hit show, Us Weekly reports.

Lauren recently came out in an essay for Identities.Mic a few months back, where she talked about the realization that she was homosexual even though she was married to a man.

“I realized I was gay in fall 2012, one of my first days on the set,” Lauren wrote. “It wasn’t so much one thing, but the sum of many small details: how uncomfortable I felt around groups of lesbians or how I considered myself (shrug) a “not very sexual person.” When considered alone, these seemed like little quirks that made me me. Wanting to read a book instead of have sex is a perfectly reasonable preference to have, right?”

“I was finally forced to consider a question that had never, ever occurred to me before: Holy sh*t, am I gay?,” Lauren added.

Lauren and Samira have posted just a few pictures on social media together – they reportedly hit the 2014 Emmys together and were seen dancing and holding hands.
