Fans of VH1 reality series Black Ink Crew love to follow Ceaser Emanuel‘s love life — and lately, especially after his split from Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta star Karlie Redd, many can’t help but wonder about those rumors suggesting Ceaser from the Black Ink shop has a new girlfriend. In an exclusive interview with In Touch, the reality star and entrepreneur opened up about the current status of his romantic life — and it is NOT what fans are expecting.

“I am single as a dollar bill!” he quipped during a Facebook live interview with In Touch on Wednesday. “I’m dating a couple of people casually. I’m really invested in my family and my business — I’ve invested five years into a relationship, and it’s my time to tend to my businesses. They’re flourishing. I’m paying attention to certain things and they’re going good. I’m about to open more shops. My family is doing better. I’m about to move my family out of the ‘hood. I don’t really have time for a [serious] relationship. If I do, it has to be someone who is really understanding.”

However, he hasn’t ruled out getting married or having more kids one day. Ceaser has a daughter named Cheyenne from a previous relationship, and before his brief stint with Karlie he was engaged to his co-star Dutchess Lattimore. “The funny thing is, one day I would,” he replied when asked if he wanted a wife. “I feel like you can’t just be hustlin’ just to hustle. Let’s say I make the Forbes and become a billionaire — I just did it just to do it? That’s kind of selfish. I want to have a family and feel the love, have quality time and stuff like that.” It definitely sounds like he’ll make a great husband to a lucky lady one day!

Black Ink Crew airs on Wednesday nights at 9 p.m. EST on VH1.
