In Love Wit Chu: Rapper Da Brat Has a Girlfriend, Is Dating Jesseca Dupart

Well y’all I woke up to some news today! Have you heard? There’s something going around, and no it is not the novel coronavirus. It’s girl-on-girl love!!

Picture me, reading this, hair still in a bonnet, furiously scrolling through Instagram for confirmation. And lo and behold!!!!!! Rapper Da Brat shared some news on her Instagram about the new love of her life, haircare mogul Jesseca Dupart.

After Dupart presented her with the gift, Da Brat was so overwhelmed she tried to run away: “SHE HATES TO ACCEPT ANY GIFTS FROM ME… But she deserves the WORLD and so much more 🌎 I’ve never been SOOOO happy and honestly think that it’s not only because of our connection but also because we really been to ourselves.” Whew chile, we STAN a private relationship!!!

Y’all the world is not ending. Far from it! Black queer love is alive and thriving!! Girls are still buying girls extravagant gifts and presenting them with huge custom made bows just to say “happy birthday, boo” and we LOVE to see it!

Happy early birthday to Da Brat, congrats to you and your boo, and I wish y’all marathon sex during your isolation.
