The relationship between Whitley and Rodney is quite dramatic, as both the individuals seem to have conflicting opinions on their affair. Even though the 'Black Dynamite' actress adopted a child with Johnson, she ruled out any romantic affair with her adopted son's primary father figure. The Hollywood star revealed on how they 'will never be together as a couple' in an interview.

Whitley and Johnson decided to stay in a living relationship in 2014 to give their son the best possible childhood, even if they ruled out any romantic interests against each other. Interestingly, the two did open up on a hint about their past to their therapist. Upon the question on their intimacy, Whitley denied sleeping with Rodney straight away. On the other hand, the adopted child's father paused a little and satirically turned to the actress and asked, 'We haven't? Kym responded saying, 'No, we did not, and I'm about to throw up in my mouth if you say it again.' The two might not indulge in an intimate affair in the future, but they did hint on how they had something in the past. 

Kym Whitley's Views on Dating and Romance

Kym Whitley might be living together with Johnson, but that doesn't stop her from getting out and dating other men. In an interview with Steve Harvey, she told how her relationships never worked long term as she got in arguments with her dates after a short time of the honeymoon phase. While she loves the initial stage, Whitley gets annoyed as things start looking serious, especially when things get clingy, and love feelings get involved.
