At the celebration for the song “For The Girls” by Kiyoko, which contains a cameo from Tilley in the music video, the couple made their public entrance. The reality star was invited onstage by Kiyoko during the ceremony, and they hugged and kissed each other there.
According to the singer’s Instagram, Hayley Kiyoko And Becca Tilley initially met in 2018 and have been dating for four years.
In a picture of the pair laughing while Tilley’s arm is around her waist, Kiyoko said, “This shot is from the first night we met at my Expectations album release party; we took this picture after 5 minutes.” “It’s been four years. Her shirt screamed, ‘no time for romance. She probably had some free time.
Tilley claimed to be single in 2018, but she was cautious about opening up to Kiyoko about her past relationships, particularly her year-long relationship with Robert Graham from Bachelor Nation.
But in 2022, the couple decided it was time to publicly declare their love, and they haven’t looked back since.
Soon after revealing her relationship with Tilley, Kiyoko told PEOPLE that “It feels extremely fantastic.” We led a very typical life, to be sure. It was simply absent from social media.
We led extremely honest lives. We’ve been dating for four years, but our relationship is now public on social media. We may now share with the rest of the globe. The love and support we’ve received have just been wonderful.
