The Grammy nominee continued: “We’re completely in love and enjoying our new chapter … [Hazel has] really got him wrapped around her finger, and I’ve seen him change in ways that I know he didn’t expect. She’s growing us up.”

While discussing her bisexuality during an appearance on Baltimore’s Radio One, Monét explained why her sexual orientation doesn’t make her more prone to infidelity.

“Whether I were dating a man or woman, I feel like it’s more so about the connection you have with each other and the trust that you have.

It may not be one of my friends. It could be anybody I walk past.”
