Recently, rumors about a potential breakup fueled by hateful comments started circulating online. Both DDG and Bailey dispelled the rumors.
“I truly believe that what makes this a special love is that I’m just able to be myself and just have a sense of just relief when I’m away from work and everything. And I think when you’re young, you should just be happy; you should do things that make you happy,” Bailey said during a recent appearance on Tamron Hall.
The 23-year-old addressed rumors concerning her relationship with DDG.
“I think people put such a microscope on me and my life, especially now suddenly that I’m a Disney princess, and people are looking for any little thing to talk about,” she added. “But what I respect about this connection is that there’s love there and will always be, so I really don’t really mind all the naysayers.”
“I live my life, I’m happy, and this moment for me is really special, and I’m just focusing on that,” she said.
The Little Mermaid premieres in theaters on Friday.
