Keke Palmer has spoken out about her sexuality, stating that she just decided to “explore her life” and live as a free spirit.

During an appearance on “The Best Podcast Ever with Raven and Miranda,” the “Nope” actress, 29, revealed that she spent years suppressing her sexuality before eventually being experimental.

“There was a moment in my life where I was like ya know, can I be myself? The moment where you overthink s–t,” she told co-hosts Raven-Symoné and her wife Miranda Maday.

“That’s not even me, why am I overthinking this? I guess you just get to the point where I want my life to be my own life.”

Palmer, who has a 5-month-old baby named Leodis with boyfriend Darius Jackson, said she didn’t “live out” relationships because she didn’t want her family to know she was open to other possibilities.

“There is like an unsaid thing that can make you feel — and because I liked guys too, I was kinda like, ‘Well, we don’t have to talk about it,’” she explained. “Because I like guys too, it was like that’s another extra thing that no one really has to know about. I don’t really have to live out.”

Palmer eventually acknowledged her feelings and accepted herself when she was 17 years old.

“I ultimately just feel like the acceptance of that part of myself, in general, was a part of my process of being able to have love in my life,” she explained.

“Sexuality and stuff like that, that was not even — my parents never even cared about something like that or talked about that.”

“And I know that by the time they saw how free of a spirit I was, and whoever I wanted to date, they were like, ‘Whoever cares.’ It was never anything that was in their mind,” she added.

Palmer’s relationship with Jackson made headlines in early July when he publicly criticized her for wearing a revealing outfit to Usher’s Las Vegas residency concert.

“It’s the outfit, tho… you a mom,” the 29-year-old tweeted with a viral video of her being serenaded by the R&B artist with a rendition of his classic “There Goes My Baby.”

He then tweeted, “We live in a generation where a man of the family doesn’t want the wife & mother to his kids to showcase booty cheeks to please others & he gets told how much of a hater he is.”

He has since deleted his social media accounts after being chastised by fans and celebrities alike for his irresponsible remarks.
