*Comedian/actress, Sommore previously revealed that she and half-sister actress Nia Long didn’t have a close bond growing up because they weren’t raised together. The women have different mothers but share the same father.
“We share the same father but we’re not necessarily sisters,” Sommore said in an interview with Divine Martino (listen via the player above).
According to I Love Old School Music, she also revealed that while they speak to each other in public and are cordial, they don’t have a sisterly connection that folks may assume them to have.

For years, fans of the stars had no idea they were related.
During a previous interview, Sommore explained how she didn’t want it known that she had a famous sibling because she wanted to navigate Hollywood without the help of her A-list sister.
Now that the secret is out, Sommore says “most men that I run into already have a crush on Nia. You don’t know how many men offer, ‘Please can I come to the family reunion, please…?’”
Meanwhile, after years of rumors and speculation about how the two sisters really feel about each other, the “Boyz N’ The Hood” star laid to rest any doubt by noting on Instagram back in April that Simmore is “the funny one in the family”— peep Nia’s IG post above.
