Janelle Monae Posts Sweet Birthday Message To Rumored Girlfriend Tessa Thompson
Janelle took to Instagram and dedicated a series of stories to the Creed actress and included a few intimate snapshots of the two.
The two confirmed they are indeed an item in June 2018. Monae said,
“We love each other deeply. We’re so close, we vibrate on the same frequency. If people want to speculate about what we are, that’s okay. It doesn’t bother me.”
Thompson also opened up about their relationship previously and said,
“It’s tricky because Janelle and I are just really private people and we’re both trying to navigate how you reconcile wanting to have that privacy and space and also wanting to use your platform and influence. I can take things for granted because of my family – it’s so free and you can be anything that you want to be. I’m attracted to men and also to women. If I bring a woman home, [or]a man, we don’t even have to have the discussion.”
“I get text messages from friends that are like, ‘Would you please let Janelle know I came out to my family because of her?’ I think that work is really helping people and probably saving some lives.”
Reports that they were dating started Tessa was Janelle’s love interest in Janelle’s Dirty Computer in February.
Happy Birthday Tessa Thompson!
