Da Brat opened up about her intimate relationship with Atlanta entrepreneur Jesseca Dupart on the season premiere of “Growing Up Hip-Hop.”
“There’s so much going on in my life and my world right now,” the 46-year-old rap artist said. “Recently, I decided to let y’all in on my life a little bit, you know what I’m saying?”
The “Funkdafied” rapper, whose relationships rarely last longer than 3 years, said the Coronavirus lockdown made her and 38-year-old Jesseca’s bond stronger.
“I think we’re a great couple together. Quarantine can make you or break you and we are still here, baby. So we must be doing alright. And it feel good to be happy out loud.”
Da Brat is self-conscious about her weight gain as her body transitions into menopause.
After the two women met in Atlanta, Brat said she initially didn’t want Jesseca to “look” at her for “too long” because she didn’t want to expose her many “imperfections.”
“I was just real nervous and scared,” she said. “At first I would hide behind furniture when she would talk to me. I would cover up my face when I laughed.”
“It was the cutest thing ever,” said Jessica.
“Like nobody probably would ever expect me to act like that,” Da Brat added.
