AceShowbiz - Is Janelle Monae coming out of the closet? The "Hidden Figures" actress is reportedly dating Tessa Thompson. According to MediaTakeOut, the two appeared to confirm their romance as they graced the red carpet at the premiere of Tessa's upcoming flick "Annihilation" on Tuesday, February 13.
At the premiere which was held at Regency Village Theather, the two ladies were photographed embracing each other. They also walked in together.
Janelle, who rocked a pixie cute, opted for a Giorgio Armani Prive sheer top which she teamed with a polkadot skirt and blue suede boots from Han Chong and Robert Clergerie. The 32-year-old SAG Award winner completed her look with a black St. Germaine hat, Lee Savage clutch and jewelry by Giorgio Armani and Lilou.
As for Tessa, who plays a character named Josie Radek in the movie, she looked stunning in a white sheer dress from a Spring 2018 collection of Naeem Khan. It was a girlie girl gown, but the "Creed" actress managed to make it cool.
Further adding fuel to the romance rumor, Janelle and Tessa also hit the red carpet at the premiere of "Black Panther".
Prior to this, Janelle and Tessa were also seen sharing an intimate moment in public. At last year's Emmy Awards, the alleged new couple was snapped holding hands at the table while looking very at ease.
Janelle previously shared her thought about same-sex relationship, saying that love "has no sexual orientation." Telling Okayplayer, the "Moonlight" star said, "I am an advocate - I have friends who are in, you know, same-sex relationships and I think that love has no sexual orientation. Love has no religious beliefs. Love is the purest thing and one of the most important things that we can possess for ourselves and for others."
