The truth about Lizzo’s boyfriend Myke Wright

She may have asked Chris Evans to marry her on Twitter and she may have held hands with Harry Styles at an awards show, but there really is someone else who makes Lizzo say, “Because I love you,” in real life.

In case you haven’t heard, the “About Damn Time” singer has a friend – actor and comedian Myke Wright. Lizzo has been mostly silent about her dating life for the longest time, but in February she told Variety that she was “a little bit” in love, though she declined to say more about it. When she appeared on “Radio Andy” in April, the singer found herself in the hot seat when asked whether or not she was still seeing the lover she didn’t want to name. “Yeah, whatever, yeah,” she said with a laugh at the time.

It wasn’t until June that Lizzo and Wright made it official on the red carpet and Instagram. They made their debut as a couple at the For Your Consideration event for Lizzo’s Emmy-nominated reality series Watch Out for the Big Grrrls. Of course, fans are curious about the singer’s beau, so we’re here to bring you the news.

Lizzo and Myke Wright go way back

Lizzo and Myke Wright have apparently known each other since 2016. According to People, the two co-hosted MTV’s “Wonderland” music series. It’s unclear if they liked each other at the time, but they were first linked in 2021 when they were spotted having dinner somewhere in Los Angeles.

Not much is known about Lizzo’s lover, but in his interview with VoyageLA, he revealed that he grew up in Detroit. He’s also an artist through and through, attending acting camps, attending guitar classes, attending art shows, and more while growing up. Wright reportedly started an all-black rock band in high school, and now he’s started a design and innovation company alongside acting.

To say that Wright is a multi-hyphenate would be an understatement. He even said himself that he doesn’t stick to a single discipline. “I believe in always going beyond the comfort zone. For this reason, many people know me as a specialist in many disciplines,” he said in an interview. “Design, music production and acting to name a few. I see the connection between all the different mediums I work in.”

Lizzo said her relationship with Myke Wright ‘beats differently’

Lizzo isn’t one to reveal much about her personal life, but she once said her relationship with Myke Wright was different from her previous experiences. She said that Wright loves her the way she is and doesn’t mind that she’s so famous.

“I have the most genuine people around me,” she said during an appearance at The Breakfast Club. “You don’t care about ‘Lizzo’ with the necklace. You care about ‘Melissa’.” [her real name], and everyone who’s close to me knew me before all of this happened, and I think that’s important… Even the man I’m with knew me before all of this, too. We were friends. It was different from when they knew you before 2019.” Elsewhere during the interview, she even said she was loyal to Wright. “It’s like I just love you. I’m not worried about anyone else. I think that’s what we have, which is the most beautiful and pure thing there has ever been.”

In her guest appearance on “Radio Andy,” Lizzo also confirmed that Wright has always supported her in everything she does. “If you have the right person, then no. Not at all, it’s not even a factor,” she said when asked if her superstar influences their relationship. “It should support each other no matter what that person is doing.” We are happy for you, Lizzo!
