In a video posted yesterday on her Instagram, Da Brat confirmed that she is in a relationship with Kaleidoscope Hair Products CEO Jesseca Dupart.
In the video, Da Brat is receiving a car as a birthday gift from Dupart, and she is overwhelmed with emotions.
“I’ve always been a kind of private person until I met my heart’s match who handles some things differently than I do,” Da Brat wrote. “I have never experienced this feeling. It’s so overwhelming that often I find myself in a daze hoping to never get pinched to see if it’s real so I can live in this dream forever.”

Never have I EVER. Needless to say… I’ve always been a kind of private person until I met my heart’s match who handles some things differently than I do. Thank you baby @darealbbjudy for far more than this incredible birthday gift. I have never experienced this feeling. It’s so overwhelming that often I find myself in a daze hoping to never get pinched to see if it’s real so I can live in this dream forever.

On her Instagram feed, Dupart shared a picture of the couple together with the word “Yep,” the first time she has shared her relationship with her followers.
Dupart also shared a picture of the cars with the simple message “HERS n HERS.”
Dupart also thanked her fans for their support, which she said “FARRR outweighs the hatred and the lies.”
