Halle Bailey Opened Up For First Time About Her Relationship With Boyfriend

While gracing the cover of Essence's 2022 issue with sister Chloe, the singer, and actress, who is set to star as Ariel in the upcoming live-action The Little Mermaid, opened up for the first time about her love with boyfriend PontiacMadeDDG, saying that she had been a fan of the rapper and YouTuber for years before they met.

He grew up being on YouTube, always seeing the young Black creators, and was constantly inspired by them. He was one of them, Halle told the magazine.

She completely forgot about him. But then I saw that he was dropping music, and I gravitated toward this one song. Coincidentally he messaged me, and the rest is history.

DDG Confirmed Their Relationship

While it's unclear when exactly Halle, and DDG, started dating, rumors of a romance started to swirl in January when the two were spotted at Usher's Las Vegas residency together. DDG confirmed their relationship by posting a romantic birthday tribute to Halle on Instagram in March.

Asked now whether she was in love, Halle said yes. For sure, I am. Elsewhere in the interview, Halle touched on her relationship with her loved ones, describing herself as a protector.

She said that if you've got a problem with so-and-so, then we've got a problem. I'm a fire sign. If I love you and somebody crosses you, it's over. That's been my stance since I was young. She also got candid about embracing her body's changes.

Finally, I'm 22 years old, and some of the weight is sticking, and I'm happy about it, she said. Chloe has the booty, and I'm getting some cleavage. Chloe, meanwhile, opened up about her journey to finding body confidence.

As much as people think I'm so confident, 80 percent of the time, I feel the complete opposite of that, she said. That's why I put so much of myself into my music. That's where I feel like myself and where I belong in this life whenever I'm onstage.

The girl I watch and watch sings back, and she intimidates me. I'm like, Who the hell is that? She is also found a way to express her individuality through her style.

About The Fashion

It's about making a statement and showing people who I am through my clothes and Armor. Fashion isn't all about being expensive and wearing brand names.

It's about feeling put together and looking like how you want to feel and how you want people to perceive you. With her upcoming debut solo album, Chloe said she's ‘breaking free from the boxes people have put her in through the years.

It's everything that I've been going through, all the tearing down, people underestimating, telling me I can't do it, all of those things have gone into the music, she said.

The album is me picking myself up and talking myself out of any little place or space that the world has tried to put me in, that people and personal relationships have tried to put me in, and even doing that to myself.

The two sisters, who perform together as Chloe x Halle in addition to their solo projects, first gained fame in 2013 when their covers of songs like Beyoncé's ‘Best Thing I Never Had’ and ‘Pretty Hurts’ went viral on YouTube.

Halle Parkwood Entertainment Company

Their videos eventually caught Beyoncé's attention, and she signed the duo to her Parkwood Entertainment company, through which they've since released everything from their debut EP, 2016's Sugar Symphony, to their latest album, 2020's Ungodly Hour, and Chloe's recent solo singles, ‘Have Mercy,’ ‘Treat Me,’ and ‘Surprise.’

As Halle prepares for the release of The Little Mermaid next year, as well as the remake of The Color Purple in which she'll portray young Nettie, she said she'd found her individuality through God through talking to God every day by prayer, by meditation and through music.

She thinks finding myself is going to be an endless journey, she said. And while I feel like I know myself at 22, I'm constantly getting to know more about who I am.
