Media Take Out broke the news last year that Lizzo was dating a comedian named Myke Wright. The two were spotted out last night at the BRIT Awards. And they looked really cute and really happy together.

The two met each other 7 years ago, when they both starred in an MTV show called Wonderland. Myke was Lizzo’s co-host and we’re told that they struck up a friendship.
Media Take Out spoke with a Hollywood insider who told us that Lizzo had a “crush” on Myke for years. But it took years of hard work, before the BBW beauty was able to land the man of her dreams.
Their friendship grew, as Lizzo’s fame grew. And eventually last year, after years of Lizzo pursuing Myke and getting curved, Myke had a change of heart, and the two started dating.
And now the couple is MADLY in love. You see ladies, sometimes persistence pays off.
Lizzo, whose real name is Melissa Jefferson, shared during an interview with The Sunday Times in March 2020. “Like, my relationship with my family, I’m working on that. I open myself up to friendships. I open myself up to the idea of children, which is big for me, because my albums are my babies.”
Lizzo attained mainstream success with the release of her third studio album, Cuz I Love You (2019), which peaked at number four on the US Billboard 200. The album spawned the singles “Juice” and “Tempo”. The deluxe version of the album included Lizzo’s 2017 single “Truth Hurts” which became a viral sleeper hit two years after its initial release. It topped the US Billboard Hot 100, and became the longest-leading solo song by a female rapper. Around this time, her 2016 single “Good as Hell” also climbed the charts, reaching the top ten on the Billboard Hot 100 and UK Singles Chart. Lizzo received eight nominations at the 62nd Annual Grammy Awards, the most for any artist that year, including nominations for each of the “Big Four” categories; and eventually won the awards for Best Urban Contemporary Album, Best Pop Solo Performance for “Truth Hurts”, and Best Traditional R&B Performance for the song “Jerome”.
In 2021, Lizzo released the single “Rumors” featuring Cardi B, which debuted in the top five of the Billboard Hot 100. Her fourth studio album Special (2022) was preceded by its lead single “About Damn Time”, which reached number one on the Billboard Hot 100 and won the Grammy Award for Record of the Year.
Aside from singing and rapping, Lizzo has also worked as an actor: she served as a voice actor in the animated film UglyDolls (2019) and appeared in the crime comedy-drama film Hustlers (2019). She is also the host of the Amazon Prime Video reality television series Lizzo’s Watch Out for the Big Grrrls, for which she won the Primetime Emmy Award for Outstanding Competition Program. In 2019, Time named Lizzo as “Entertainer of the Year” for her meteoric rise and contributions to music. In addition to her four Grammy Awards, she has also won a Billboard Music Award, a BET Award, and two Soul Train Music Awards.
