Da Brat Talks Keeping Sexuality Under Wraps Because 'It Wasn't Cool Back in the Day'

Last week Da Brat made it Instagram official with her girlfriend, Jesseca Dupart, and now she’s explaining why she never confirmed her sexuality before.

“I guess I should just say a few things about it since this is the show that I’m on and everybody else talking about it and I did make a post,” she said on Rickey Smiley Morning Show last Friday.

The Hip Hop veteran said that she’s a private person and often times just let people speculate. She also reminded listeners that homosexuality wasn’t as accepted in the ’90s as it is now so that played a part in her being tight-lipped about it. “I never confirmed anything because in the ’90s, it wasn’t cool back in the day,” she continued. “I’m a little bit nervous because I’m not really used to talking about this thing because I’m not a public person when it comes to my personal life.”

“But when you get blessed and somebody when you weren’t even looking for nobody, and they love you like you’ve never been loved before, it’s a whole different experience,” Brat said of her relationship with the beauty mogul. “Like Jill Scott says, she loves me from my hair follicles down to my toenails. She inspires me, she believes in me, she motivate me, she accepts me for who I am — my past, my faults, mistakes. We can talk about anything and everything. There’s nothing I can’t talk to about with her and it’s just amazing,” she gushed.


Last Wednesday Dupart, known for her Kaleidoscope Beauty brand, shared a romantic photo of the couple embracing, confirming all the years of speculation about Brat’s sexuality. #LoveWins
