Halle and DDG made their red carpet debut as a couple in June 2022 when they attended the BET Awards, with the rapper saying at the event, according to Elle: ‘I have my boo with me today.’
Later that year, the actress spoke in an interview about how she’d been a fan of her partner before they got together.
‘I’ve been a fan of his for years,’ she told Essence.

‘I grew up being on YouTube and would always see the young Black creators and was constantly inspired by them. He was one of them.’
The singer, who is one half of the musical duo Chloe x Halle with her sister Chloe Bailey, said that she ‘gravitated’ towards one of DDG’s songs, before he ended up messaging her.
In addition to performing with her sister, Halle has also released solo music, with her debut single Angel coming out last summer.
