JOJO Siwa rose to fame as a cast member on hit reality show Dance Moms between 2015 to 2016.
Now, she is a pop megastar turned entrepreneur who’s balancing her work life with a new relationship.
JoJo has long been the subject of relationship rumors, which include suggestions that she dated Nickelodeon star, Jace Norman,
Jace was previously in a relationship with Isabela Moner in 2016; they dated for seven months.
The actor also was rumored to have dated Sydney Park, Cree Cicchino, Riele West Downs, and Shelby Simmons.
In May of 2020, JoJo published pictures on social media spending some casual time with a close family friend from Nebraska, Elliot Brown.
JoJo addressed the speculation in an interview with Us Weekly, saying that despite their closeness, the two were simply friends.
In August 2020, JoJo uploaded a video called ‘Meet Mark’ to TikTok in which she introduced her then-boyfriend to the world, Mark Bontempo.
The romance was short-lived, however, as the pair split after just a few months together.
In a December 2020 interview with Entertainment Tonight, JoJo said:
“I am single as a Pringle right now. But Mark and I did break up. We were together for three months and it was great. We had fun, we drove through Taco Bell, I think, 450 times. We had some really fun nights. We never actually had any hard times, we never fought, we never were mad at each other. It was honestly a great time,” she explained.
“It just, we had to work. He had to do some things in his life that I wanted to be there for him, but he had to be there 250 percent for himself. And I didn’t want to take away from him being able to be there for himself.”
The Dance Moms alum came out as part of the LGBTQIA+ community back in January in a viral TikTok video dancing to Lady Gaga’s Born This Way.
The dancer later clarified her message on Instagram, sharing a photo of herself wearing a shirt that read “Best. Gay. Cousin. Ever,” gifted to her by her cousin.
A few weeks later, she revealed she had a girlfriend named Kylie Prew during an appearance on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon.
JoJo has called her girlfriend “the most amazing, wonderful, perfect, most beautiful girlfriend in the whole world.”
The Nickelodeon star also said her girlfriend was “super encouraging” in her decision to come out.
In an Instagram post she wrote: “After being my best friend for over a year, January 8th 2021 I got to start calling this exceptional human my Girlfriend… and Since then I’ve been the happiest I have ever been!
“She seriously is the most loving, supportive, happiest, protective, and just the most beautiful perfect person in the world.”
JoJo revealed she is trying to get the kissing scene she filmed for her upcoming movie removed because she’s “madly in love” in love with her girlfriend Kylie and does not want “to kiss another human being.”
She told Entertainment Weekly in its digital Pride cover story: “I’m madly in love and I do not want to kiss another human, especially because it’s a man.”
