JoJo Siwa Reveals She Has A Girlfriend & Reflects On Coming Out On TikTok

JoJo Siwa is opening up just weeks after revealing that she is gay.

In a new interview with The Tonight Show, the 17-year-old actress and singer opened up about her decision to come out to her fans through a TikTok video.

“I was doing TikTok with the people in the Pride House… and I’m like, ‘I think this TikTok is going to out me,’” she shared. “I was like, ‘I don’t really mind, it is true. I do have the most amazing, wonderful, perfect, most beautiful girlfriend in the whole world. It’s not something I’m ashamed of, I just haven’t shown the internet yet.’”

JoJo also spoke of how her girlfriend, who she hasn’t named, was supportive of the decision to share the news.

“The day after I posted on TikTok, I was on FaceTime with her and we were talking about it, and talking about all of the love that came in and technically I still hadn’t confirmed it,” she says. “And I was like, I kind of want to post this picture [wearing a 'Best Gay Cousin Ever' shirt]… She was super encouraging like, ‘Do it!’ I was like, ‘Alright, I did it.’”

JoJo added that just before the interview she was on the phone with “her girl”, as well.

“I was like, ‘Technically it was a really big risk posting that… but if I lost everything that I’ve created because of being myself and because of loving who I want to love I don’t want it, that’s not what,’” she says. “If I can’t love who I want to love, that’s one of the most important things to me.”

“About 10 minutes before I came out to do this interview today, I was again on the phone with my girl and I started crying,” JoJo shared. “She’s like, ‘What’s wrong with you?’ I’m like, ‘I’m just so happy because now I get to share what makes me the happiest with the world, and it makes my heart so happy.’”

After coming out late last month, JoJo talked with her fans about coming out and even put one fan’s mom in her place.
