Lizzo has a new man in her life!

Since confirming she's in a relationship during an April 2022 interview with Andy Cohen on his SiriusXM series Radio Andy, the "Truth Hurts" singer has been going public with her boyfriend Myke Wright.

After stepping out together for her 34th birthday in West Hollywood, the pair hit their first red carpet together on June 4, 2022 as they attended the FYC event for her Amazon Prime Video series, Watch Out for the Big Grrrls.

"Ima boss ass bitch 💅🏾 #FYC," Lizzo captioned the gallery, which included photos of her wearing a fluorescent pink party dress with matching tights and gloves.

The series of photos also included Lizzo cuddling up to Wright on the carpet, as well as a photo of her hand on his that happened to show off some of her jewelry for the evening.

Lizzo and Wright sparked romance rumors when they were spotted having dinner together in L.A. on Valentine's Day, but they were linked sometime before that. In October 2021, Lizzo and her beau were spotted at Crustacean Beverly Hills together.

Since then, Wright has accompanied Lizzo to a handful of events, including the FYC event for her Amazon Prime Video series, Watch Out for the Big Grrrls, and the 2022 MTV VMAs where she took home the video for good award.

In February 2023, the couple made their Grammys debut as they stepped out for the Pre-GRAMMY Gala, walked the red carpet together, and sat next to each other during the music ceremony. Lizzo later shared a handful of photos of them on Instagram with the caption, "Hard Launch😮‍💨"

Myke Wright was previously a cohost with Lizzo

Lizzo and Wright actually go way back. Before going public with their romance, the two were cohosts for MTV's music series Wonderland in 2016.

Myke Wright is a comedian

Wright is best known for being a stand-up comedian, having previously appeared on Adam Devine's House Party and Laughs. Additionally, Wright has a handful of acting credits, including How to Be a Grown Up, Doubting Thomas, and the short Tell Me What You Know About Cyrus, per his IMDb page.

Myke Wright was raised in Detroit

According to VoyageLA, Wright grew up on Detroit's Westside. After "juggling music, video production, and attending Art College," per the publication, he eventually decided to move to Los Angeles in 2012 to pursue a career as a standup comedian.

Myke Wright is also a musician

Another thing Wright has in common with Lizzo is their shared love of music. While Lizzo is well-known for her singing career, Wright was previously a part of two different bands. In high school, he formed an all-Black rock band, The Grey Level, with three of his best friends and later formed an alternative hip hop group called Phresh Heir, per his interview with VoyageLA.

Wright really does it all! On top of being a comedian, actor, and musician, Wright is also a designer. In addition to contributing designs to EMLE, a Detroit-based luxury clothing brand, he also founded his own designer and innovation company called ümi, which is "focused on improving the quality of human life through products and experience," per VoyageLA.

"My mother would always tell me 'Make Your Life More Than Just Long'. I really took that to heart," he told the publication. "ümi is about getting all brightest minds together and forming material solutions for the problems humans face."

Myke Wright has a special nickname for Lizzo

While the world calls Melissa Viviane Jefferson by her stage name, Lizzo, Wright calls his girlfriend by a different nickname.

"He calls me Melly," the Truth Hurts singer told the host of Audacy Check In. "He's creative."

Lizzo says she and Myke Wright are "locked in"

In October 2022, marriage seemed to be off the table for Lizzo and Wright — unless it was a smart business move.

"I've known him for over six years. He's everything. We're just in love. And that's it," she told Vanity Fair. "People fight for monogamy like they pray to it every day. I am not a polyamorous person, I'm not in love with multiple partners. That is not me. He's the love of my life. We are life mates."

Lizzo added: "Do I want to get married? If I wanted to start a business with him, I'd get married because that's when your finances come together."

But the "Juice" singer didn't shut down the possibility of marriage when Howard Stern asked about the couple's future plans during an interview in December 2022.

"We're not playing any games with each other anymore. We're very much locked in," she said. "This is official. There's nobody else I'm going to be with for the rest of my life."

Lizzo requested fans bring cutouts of Myke Wright's face to her concerts

On May 19, Lizzo shared a hilarious clip from a recent concert, where she posed with fans who brought blown-up photos of Wright. She explained that in a previous show, she gave a "public service announcement" after fans kept bringing cutouts of Chris Evans' face, who the singer publicly crushed on before dating Wright.

"Chris Evans is not my man," she told the crowd at the earlier show. "My man is [Myke Wright]. He fine as hell. I wanna see his fine a-- face when I'm onstage."
