Who is Susan Kelechi Watson dating in 2021?

While the This Is Us actress is currently single, Susan was previously romantically linked to Law and Order and Blue Bloods actor Jaime Lincoln Smith. In November of 2020, Susan announced news of their split by way of a since-deleted Instagram post that read, “And I thought becoming single was gonna be the only eventful thing to happen to me this year #TwentyTwenty.” 

Jaime, who was engaged to Susan for one year before their breakup, surprised the actress with a proposal on what she thought would be a trip to a cannabis festival. On A Little Late with Lilly Singh, Susan gushed, “I knew it was, like, gonna happen at some point, I didn't know exactly when. And he surprised me because he told me we were going to a cannabis festival — he wanted to throw me completely off.”

While Susan initially believed that she and her boyfriend were on their way to make weed brownies, they later arrived at a church where her would-be husband would eventually get down on one knee. She continued, “He was like, 'Yeah, it's where we learn how to put medicinal weed in brownies, and we'll make brownies.' And I was like, ‘Oh, okay.' And then he was like, ‘But you gotta look cute, though.'"

"So then, we drive, we turn into, like, a glasshouse church and I was like, ‘This don't look like no cannabis festival. There's a woman praying. I just don't feel like this is it.' And then we go into the church and by the time we walked in I realized, ‘Oh wait, something's happening.' And your mind starts to go slow and then all of a sudden he's down on one knee. And I'm engaged, so,” Susan concluded. 

In a later interview with Entertainment Tonight, Susan explained that she was doing all of the proper research to prepare for her upcoming nuptials. Susan told ET, “I’m reaching out to wise, married people. Which I think is any married person because if you’ve been through it, you know something that I don’t know.”

Sadly, this advice wasn’t enough to keep the couple together. It seems that the two have split amicably and are living their best lives separately — with Susan recently booking a gig on HBO's special Between The World and Me. Speaking of being booked and busy, how much is Susan Kelechi Watson worth? 

What is Susan Kelechi Watson’s net worth?

Susan’s net worth is reportedly about $4 million. She's starred in shows like The Blacklist and NCIS, and most recently was featured alongside Tom Hanks in the film A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood.
