Has Diana have any dating history?
Diana has always been professional and never opened about her private life. Though, there are lots of times where Turasi has hinted but never left a trace for exact fact.
As every professional would like to basically stick to their work, Turasi has never opened about her boyfriend or if she is dating with someone. In interviews, she is always bossing around, when asked about her private life she easily skips the part by using her unique sense of humor.
If rumors to be believed during her college days that she had a boyfriend but there is not any short of concrete evidence. In an interview with WNBA.COM she was asked by a fan whether she had a boyfriend,
‘I do NOT have a boyfriend, but I am looking for someone who is rich, is about 6-8 and drives a BMW 745 li.’
In the same interview, another fan asked her about celebrity crush, she came with most unexpected answer.
“Yes, WNBA President Donna Orender.”
It turns out she is more of a funny person as she talks about having a boyfriend, on the other side she talks about having a female crush which shows controversy to her character.
