Who is Tessa Thompson dating?
All my guys and gals, it looks like Tessa is single and living her best life! She tries to keep her love life private, but she just can’t catch a break when it comes to the paparazzi. She’s been seen with other celebrities in intimate settings by paparazzi in the past, which of course, has people speculating about her relationship status. However, every person she’s been rumored to be romantically involved with has never been confirmed by her or the other person.
And don’t go thinking you’re going to find any clues of her relationship status through her social media accounts because you aren’t.

Tessa Thompson dating history
Tessa Thompson has been romantically linked to five people that we know of. According to PopSugar, in 2015, Tessa was linked to Grammy-nominated singer Janelle Monáe when she starred as a backup dancer in Janelle’s “Yoga” video. The pair were then photographed together at the 2015 MOCA gala. However, the rumors really began to surface in 2018, when Janelle dropped her music video for her album Dirty Computer and Tessa was featured a lot in the video.
What really led people to believe that the two were an item was when Tessa did an interview with Net-A-Porter in 2018. In this interview, Tessa confessed that she and Janelle love each other very deeply and that she’s fine if people speculate about what they are to each other. But then she later says in a tweet that she never said she was in a relationship. So we’ll never know if Tessa and Janelle ever really dated. However, I think they did.
The second person Tessa was rumored to be dating was English singer Dev Hynes in 2019. They were spotted out in several places together, which led people to believe that they were dating. In 2020, they were spotted at the after-party for the premiere of Sylvie’s Love, and Tessa was seen cozying it up with the singer. After they were spotted at Milan Fashion Week in 2020, we hadn’t seen the pair together again.
In 2021, questionable pictures came out of Tessa, Taika Waititi, and Rita Ora hanging out together, and rumors spread that the trio was in a polyamorous relationship. In one photo, Tessa is seen kissing Rita, and in another photo, the three are intimately embracing each other. We’re not sure what was going on in the photos, but I guess it was just three friends enjoying each others’ company? Tessa never came out and spoke about the situation.
The last person we’ve seen Tessa with in an intimate manner is Australian model Zac Stenmark. On May 23, she was seen kissing him and holding hands in Australia. However, it’s unclear if they are dating because we haven’t seen Tessa with him since then. So until Tessa actually comes out and says she’s dating someone, we’re going to have to believe she’s single.
Tessa’s latest film, Passing, is now streaming on Netflix, so be sure to check it out!
