Lizzo and Boyfriend Myke Wright Make Their Red-Carpet Debut
Lizzo showed off her boyfriend to the world last night, when she attended the screening of her Prime Video series Watch Out for the Big Grrrls and took him as her date.
The “Good As Hell” singer wore a hot pink Valentino look, which included a minidress, tights that went over her platform heels, and opera gloves.
To complement her bright monochrome look, boyfriend Myke Wright wore an all-black ensemble, consisting of a pinstripe suit over a turtleneck and matching shoes.
Lizzo and Wright posed happily on the red carpet.
On Instagram, the singer shared two snaps of them together at the event, as well as a photo of her gloved hand—with a diamond ring on the ring finger—placed sweetly over his.
“Ima boss ass bitch, bitch, bitch, bitch, bitch, bitch, bitch💅🏾 #FYC,” she wrote in the post caption.
Lizzo and Wright were first seen out together in October 2021. Then, on Valentine’s Day 2022, they were spotted on a date at Craig’s in West Hollywood.
This April, Wright supported the “Truth Hurts” singer during her live episode of Saturday Night Live, and took her out for her birthday days later.
Lizzo confirmed her relationship with Wright—a comedian and actor—on April 18, in an interview with Andy Cohen.
“Yeah, whatever, yeah,” Lizzo admitted when Cohen asked if they were dating.
“Is that hard?” Cohen asked. “…There’s going to be a disparity. You’re Lizzo, huge superstar, and that person is whoever that person is. Is that hard in the relationship?”
“If you have the right person then no. …Not at all, it’s not even a factor,” Lizzo replied. “It should be mutually supportive no matter what that person does.”
Melissa Viviane Jefferson, known professionally as Lizzo, is an American singer, rapper and songwriter. Born in Detroit, Michigan, she later moved to Houston, Texas, where she began performing before moving to Minneapolis, where she began her recording career in hip hop music.
