Tessa Thomsons came out as a bisexual recently in 2018, during an interview with Porter Magazine. She told the magazine:
In my family you can be anything you want to be. I’m attracted to men and also to women. If I bring a woman home, or a man, we don’t even have to have the discussion.
Even though she spoke about her sexuality for the first time, it did not come as a surprise for her fans as she was rumored dating her fellow singer and rapper Janelle Monae.

We love each other deeply, we’re so close. We vibrate on the same frequency
We are unsure if she was serious about it or she was just trying to be sarcastic. Nonetheless, they are adorable and are bound to become one of the ultimate LGBT community couples when they finally confirm their relationship.
As of now, since the rumor has not been confirmed, Thompson is single and has neither gotten married nor has any children.
Thompson has always been a very confidential person. She does not like to share every detail about her personal life with the media or public which is why it is so hard to find out about her past boyfriends and affairs.
However, the one man whom we know Tessa has been with is American actor Ben Crowley. According to reports, they dated in the past and had a very intimate relationship. However, when they started dating and why they broke up are still a mystery.
Well, we hope, Tessa finds a stable partner in the future, no worries even it happens to be her rumored girlfriend Janelle Monae.
