It’s nothing but hearts and kisses for Hayley Kiyoko and Becca Tilley!
The pop singer, also known as Lesbian Jesus, and the former Bachelor contestant recently revealed that they’ve been in a relationship for four years! Now, it’s time for them to celebrate that love.
The relationship was revealed in Kiyoko’s latest sexy-as-hell music video for her single “For the Girls,” which saw Hayley starring as a lesbian Bachelorette. At the end of the video, Tilley makes a surprise appearance at the Bachelorette Mansion, and the two exchange a fiery glance.
They also confirmed the news when Kiyoko brought Tilley up at her “For the Girls” LA release party and kissed her in front of the crowd.
According to Kiyoko, the two originally met at her 2018 Expectations album release party and became a couple shortly after that. She posted pictures of them together as a happy couple from throughout their relationship on Instagram.
Tilley also posted about the relationship on Instagram, but didn’t reveal too many details. Now, she’s opened up even more about their relationship on her podcast Scrubbing In with Becca Tilley and Tanya Rad.
“Hayley and I never were secret, we were very much ourselves, we held hands in public…” Tilley revealed on the podcast. “I really made sure to make that distinction between ‘private’ and ‘secret.’ There’s such this warped perception of privacy via social media because we’re so expected to share everything.”
“I’ve always said, ‘We can go public if I can be in one of your videos,’” Tilley added.
While the two had never made social media posts explicitly detailing their relationship, they had posted each other in Instagram stories and would often each individually post pics of themselves on the same vacations.
Tilley also shared that she was afraid she’d face rejection from others if she came out, but instead, she got a wave of support and love.
“Hayley has really made me feel brave,” Tilley said. “And she was always like, ‘People love you and they want to see you happy.’ And I’m just so thankful for you guys.”
