Darius McCrary Denies Dating Sidney Starr After Their Intimate Photoshoot Goes Viral+Defends Their Friendship Following Transphobic Comments on Social Media [Video/Pics]

Posted October 19, 2021

Actor, Darius McCrary (who portrayed Eddie Winslow on the hit 90s sitcom on ‘Family Matters’) at critics after snaps from a recent photoshoot with trans reality star/personality, Sidney Starr went viral sparking ongoing dating rumors about the duo.

The images went viral on Monday after Sidney shared them on her social media and although it’s not clear whether the images are being used for an upcoming project or what specifically, they instantly got social media talking.

Here standing next to me is a seasoned legend Actor in this entertainment industry. @dariusmccrary . A black heterosexual male actor who’s standing aside a controversial transgender woman like myself.. We are great friends … and this is a powerful movement we have made to let this be a lesson to the WORLD that we are all human ! No matter what !!!! #Familymatters make sure y’all tune into @thezeusnetwork for baddies!!! My makeup by @artistryby.valentino photo by @iam_365_photography

She also shared behind-the-scenes footage of the shoot that really got the people speculating.

We both are just built special!!!!! 2 hard working celebrities in the industry!!!!!!! Eddie Winslow we love you!!!! @dariusmccrary ! We hear y’all talking !!! #transisbeautiful

As expected, social media took the posts as a public announcement that the two were dating and began running with the story on Twitter.

But for all the ignorance that was being spewed, there was also lots of support for both Darius and Sidney.

Social media from Twitter, to Instagram and specifically The Shade Room went crazy and as expected, there was a lot of transphobic commentary throughout prompting Darius to sound off.

The actor went live on Instagram, while at lunch with his TV mom, Jo Marie Payton (who played Harriette Winslow on ‘Family Matters’). Darius revealed that while he and Sidney are not specifically dating, he does support her and the trans community, saying that she is “family,” and he wants peole to stop spreading ignorance and rumors. He also revealed that he does already have a fiancee, although he did not reveal who that is. 


I stand w/my #family and that’s all that matters🤘🏾💜

He also took to his IG stories to let the people know that whatever the case is, his personal life is just that!

Despite Darius shutting down the rumors, this isn’t the first time there was speculation about the two being an item.

In October 2020, Darius posted a video of Sidney dancing to his Instagram with the caption, “The #Undeniable@sidneystarrbad what’s understood don’t need to be explained xoxoxo …”

In another post on IG, he shared a shirtless selfie in bed, telling his fans goodnight, to which Sidney replied, “Sexy daddy goodnight xoxos.”

Whatever the case, much love to both of them! Do you think they are an actual couple?
