Tessa was the one to confirm the pair's dating in an interview with Porter magazine after she fearlessly opened up her love life with the record producer, Janelle, which also discloses her bisexual sexuality.
In the interview, Tessa, who grew up in a "free" household where "you can be anything that you want to be," divulged how deeply she is in love with Janelle. Adding to it, she also talked about the couple's chemistry along with her love confession saying,
“Janelle and I love each other DEEPLY. We’re so close, we vibrate on the same FREQUENCY. If people want to SPECULATE about what we are, it doesn’t bother me.”
Well, she also made it entirely clear that she would be totally unbothered by the speculation made on her and Janelle's relationship. Despite sharing about their love, Tessa didn't precisely confirm whether she and Janelle are dating.

As for Janelle, she has remained less straightforward regarding her love for Tessa. Even though Janelle previously came forth with her bi-sexual identity for the first time in the Rolling Stone cover story, she made no mention of her love for Tessa that would confirm their relationship.
"Being a queer black woman in America, someone who has been in relationships with both men and women – I consider myself to be a free-ass motherf*****."
They had their relationship rumors swirling around in the media.
As per the record, their fans have been speculating their romance for years. Their fans have been wondering whether the pair was dating after they walked the red carpet together and Tessa appeared in Janelle's music videos.
Well, prior to this disclosure, they were utterly silent regarding their love relationship. Tessa also made clear that they both desired to have the privacy and space for themselves while relating to their love life. Tessa expressed,
"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,"
Well, despite remaining utterly silent of their relationship for years, the duo did let their fans in on their romance secret.
