Halle Bailey and DDG’s relationship has been a hot topic on social media for quite a while now. The rising star touched upon this in her May cover story for Glamour. As Bailey makes herself a household name with the upcoming premiere of The Little Mermaid and The Color Purple with the latter premiering Christmas Day (Dec. 25), her personal life has also been on full display.
“Mentally, sometimes it’s really difficult being in this industry,” she explained. “Knowing that there are so many opinions [about] you and what you’re doing, or what you should be or what you could be doing better. People sometimes put you on this pedestal. They forget that you’re a real human being. They forget that you have feelings, that you cry.”
In terms of her relationship with rapper DDG, the 23-year-old is still keeping that part of her life as private as possible. “It’s really funny how people look at you [as] still being this young girl, still being this innocent, untouchable thing. I appreciate that as I venture into adulthood, I’m able to make my own decisions. For my peace and my sanity, I have to keep that private.”
The pair, who started dating last year, were involved in some drama with DDG’s ex-rapper Rubi Rose earlier this year. The “Wifey” rapper alleged that DDG slid in her DMs after he and Bailey had been rumored to just had broken up.
“U still in la?,” DDG allegedly wrote to Rubi via DM. “Yeah,” she responded. “wyo (what you on),” he said. “Getting ready hbu (how about you),” she wrote, adding, “U hitting me the day y’all argue is so you.” DDG responded, “lol u right, lemme heal first.”
Halle commented on the drama and ensured fans that her relationship was fine.
“The devil is working,” she wrote in a since-deleted tweet. “Lol please don’t feed into the lies, especially from a third party. Stay blessed everyone.” In a quote retweet, DDG expressed, “Can y’all let my meat go now. Rubi is a weirdo. She been hating on my relationship for years.”
