We can't imagine ever doing this.

That's So Raven star Raven-Symoné has admitted that she made every person she dated sign a non-disclosure agreement (NDA).

"Welcome to being a celebrity in Hollywood nowadays," she said on the Howie Mandel Does Stuff podcast.

According to Raven, celebrities need to be conscious of the risks involved in dating and make sure to protect themselves.

She admitted, “it took me a while to wrap my head around it because it’s very impersonal, but someone in our position needs to do that.

"All of my relationships, especially – obviously – when I started dating, I had to get people to sign NDAs.

“Nowadays, hashtags, real life, they change the dynamic of having an intimate relationship with somebody."

Mandel asked how soon into the relationship she'll bring up the NDA, with Raven replying “before the naughty times come."

What about Raven's wife?

Raven admitted that she was "reluctant" to get her now-wife, Miranda Maday, to sign an NDA, but her mother pushed her to do it.

“We were in New York. We were in this outdoor French type of restaurant, and my mom had been bugging me,” she shared. “She was like, ‘You got to get it signed. I’m like, ‘She’s from the industry.’ And my mom was bugging me.

“I was really reluctant because I knew something was different about Miranda."

“She asks me questions like I’ve never been asked before but then has wonderful conversation to go with it after — no judgment. She has her own flaws that she’s allowing me to help her with and vice versa.”

Raven shared that Miranda felt the same reluctance and didn't understand why they needed an NDA when they knew they had "something different." While she did sign it, neither of them felt good about it.

“We both were like, ‘This takes away the genuineness of it all,' but we also understood that we live in Hollywood."
