Congratulations are in order for Da Brat and wife Jesseca “Judy” Harris-Dupart.
“It’s been quite a journey,” says Da Brat, who admits that at 48, “there’s a lot of stuff we learned about women over the age of 40.”
Da Brat’s unique style and talent has been on full display since the 90s, though she’d long kept her personal life private. Looking back on it all, the rapper, who first opened up about her sexuality in 2020, can’t help but smile at how life has turned out. “It’s way different now than it was before,” she says of living openly as a member of the LGBTQ community. “When I came out I was like ‘Damn, if I knew it was going to be this nice and loving I’d have probably come out a long time ago!’ ”
Most importantly, she says, “I came out because of her inspiring me,” she says of wife Dupart, “and wanting to scream it from the mountaintops that I found somebody that I am totally in love with and I don’t want to hide it anymore.”
