In an appearance with Audacy Check In this week, Lizzo revealed that she’s in love with her boyfriend, Myke Wright.
Audacy’s host, Kenzy K, talked to Lizzo about her song “2 Be Loved” and asked her if she had a preferred nickname she would want her lover to call her.
“Well, I am in love,” the “Good As Hell” singer responded. “And I feel like, you know, he has his own name for me. He called me ‘Melly.'”
“Melly!” Kenzy K responded. “Oh, it’s so cute!”
The nickname most likely stems from her real name Melissa Viviane Jefferson. She said he’s the only one that calls her Melly.
Sis2Sis has previously reported that Lizzo has been photographed with a “mystery man.” One time, she was seen with him on a balcony in Malibu. In a February interview with Andy Cohen, he mentioned her being photographed with her boo and asked if they were still together.
Lizzo cracked up and responded, “Yeah, whatever. Yeah”
She officially introduced her fans to her boyfriend at the “For Your Consideration” red-carpeted event for her Amazon Prime reality competition series Watch Out for the Big Grrrls. She posted a couple of photos of them at the event, captioning it, “Ima boss ass bitch, bitch, bitch, bitch, bitch, bitch, bitch💅🏾 #FYC.” In one photo, Lizzo is wearing a pink glove and has it on top of Wright’s with a four-blade ring on her finger.

It has been said that the two have known each other for years, but the moment they started dating isn’t publicly known.
In an interview with Variety, she was asked if she was in love and said, “Ooooh. We got to go! I’m just going to say—a little bit.”
“Are you dating someone right now?” The interviewer asked.
“I ain’t talking about this,” she responded. Big Grrrls and how we’re changing the world.”
