Who is JoJo Siwa dating? A look at her love life amid 'coming out' rumors with viral TikTok video
Did JoJo Siwa come out in her viral TikTok video? You wouldn’t be the only one asking yourself this question after witnessing the trend that swept Twitter with a shockwave today, January 20. A large number of her fans have come to believe that the ‘Dance Moms’ alum identified herself as a member of the LGBTQ+ community. The speculations were sparked by her TikTok video, in which she’s seen lip-syncing to Lasy Gaga’s ‘Born this Way’. She sings the lines, "No matter gay, straight, or bi, / Lesbian, transgender life / I'm on the right track baby / I was born to survive." However, Siwa hasn’t made any comments about the rumors or responded to any of her fans.
Who is JoJo Siwa dating?
Siwa’s dating life hasn’t been a mystery. The 17-year-old announced Via TikTok on National Girlfriend’s Day that she was dating Mark Bontempo, the younger brother of famous social media influencer Bontempo. Mark also made their relationship official with his own TikTok video.
In an interview with Seventeen in June, Siwa even confirmed that she was in a relationship, but chose to not reveal the identity of her beau. She said, “It's really up to him. I'm really in the public light and the thing is like, I don't care. That's a side of my life that I can keep public or I can keep private."
How did the break-up?
Their relationship was short-lived, and in November 2020, she announced in an Instagram comment that she and Mark had decided to part ways. She wrote in her post, "Relax. Your right, Mark doesn't deserve hateful things like this. He deserves to have people support him. You have NO idea about Mark and I's relationship. How much fun it was. How happy we both were, and how happy we both are. We decided it's best for us to not be in a relationship...that's all. Still friends, I still have his back and he has mine....He is not toxic. We're teenagers. And our relationship didn't work out right now. He did nothing. I did nothing. Just better being friends. Relax."
Later, Mark’s sister Madison confirmed the news regarding his breakup with Siwa and said, "It wasn't a bad break up, they're actually really good friends. They're just in different parts of life right now."
Siwa hasn’t spoken about dating anybody after her relationship with Mark ended. She was last in news a few days ago when she responded to the backlash over her 2018 board game “JoJo’s Juice”, which was pulled after parents complained it has “inappropriate” questions for its players as young as 6.
