Darius and Sidney took a handful of pictures that she later admitted were to stir up some press and controversy. Posted in October 2021, Sydney captioned one of the snaps, “Here standing next to me is a seasoned legend Actor in this entertainment industry. @dariusmccrary .

In an IG live, Darius dispelled the rumors that he and Sydney were an item. He said that while they are not a couple, people cannot tell him who he can and cannot be friends with.
Darius was out to lunch with his television mother, Jo Marie Payton, as he criticized people for worrying about his dating life while he was out trying to “save the world.” he also revealed that he was engaged at the time. “You’re going to tell me who I can’t be friends with, who I can’t hang out with? I mean, I’m a grown man. I’m five years from 50.”
Sydney caught wind of this at the time and posted another BTS clip from the shoot showing Darius being handsy and grabbing her waist and butt. He also kissed her. She captioned it, “We couldn’t even do this shoot because he got so sloppy drunk on set and embarrassed us… he drunk all the photographer’s liquor up.” Around the time of this, it was also rumored that Darius was dating another trans-woman, famous Beyonce impersonator Riley Knox.
