DA BRAT AND DUPART'S LOVE
Dupart's wise words come from experience as she and her girlfriend, Da Brat, took a leap of faith and made their relationship public in March last year. The "What'chu Like" rapper had kept her sexuality hidden for 25 years.
[Da Brat's] coming out raised questions about her past relationships with men, notably, former NBA star Allen Iverson.
The decision to come out wasn't planned, and Da Brat didn't even tell her manager or her family beforehand, including her half-sister, LisaRaye McCoy. The legendary rapper told Variety that it was her relationship with Dupart that inspired her to open up.
Da Brat also admitted that she decided to stay in the closet for all those years to protect her career, which blossomed during a time when misogyny and homophobia made it harder for artists to come out.
DA BRAT'S PAST RELATIONSHIPS
After going public with her relationship with Dupart, Da Brat was delighted to love her partner in the open. However, her coming out raised questions about her past relationships with men, notably, former NBA star Allen Iverson.
Da Brat and Iverson dated during the peak of their careers. Although the "Give It 2 You" rapper was already bisexual, the couple never discussed it, and their relationship ultimately ended because of alleged infidelity on Iverson's part.
