JoJo Siwa has revealed that her girlfriend was the person who helped encourage her to come out last month.
“I do have the most amazing, wonderful, perfect, most beautiful girlfriend in the whole world,” JoJo she said in a recent interview. “It’s not something I’m ashamed of. I just haven’t shown the Internet yet.”
Before coming out, JoJo posted a video of her singing to Lady Gaga’s “Born This Way.” Fans began to speculate that she was gay. She then rocked a t-shirt on social media the following day which read “‘Best. Gay. Cousin. Ever.”
“I took that picture a week before and I posted it on my close friend’s Instagram story — all my friends and family already know,” JoJo shared. “So after the “Born This Way” TikTok, I was on FaceTime with [my girlfriend] talking about all the love that came in but I still hadn’t actually confirmed it. So I was like…I kind of just want to post this picture on my real story. And she was like, ‘Do it!'”
