Amandla Stenberg Is Currently In Relationship With Singer-Girlfriend King Princess
Amandla Stenberg, 19, is in a relationship with singer-songwriter King Princess. Princess confirmed her affair with Stenberg in July 2018 during an interview with Billboard.
They seemed very happy while attending the 2018 MTV Video Music Awards on 20th August 2018.
The two were spotted together on the red carpet near Radio City Music Hall. During an interview with Wonderland magazine back in June, she revealed how the pair met.
"It was a classic Malibu function; a drunken crowd by a heated pool."
"We talked s—t about the systems that made us feel small and the effort we put in rejecting the institutions that reluctantly raised us. What I didn’t tell her was that I distinctly remember walking out of my junior year English class reading: ‘Amanda Sternberg comes out as queer.’ She unknowingly set a precedent in my life, a gold standard of how to be proud and exist in the inter sectionalist of multiple identities that were once thought of as being conflicting."

During an interview with Wonderland Magazine, she said,
"I’m grateful for how being gay has afforded me this ability to experience and understand love and sex, and therefore life, in an expansive and infinite way."
"The continual process of unlearning heteronormativity and internalized homophobia can be difficult, but one of the biggest blessings lies in the magic that comes from having to understand love outside the confines of learned heterosexual roles."
Further, she explained that her sexuality is not the part of her past experience dating men but it's how she was born on earth. Previously, she was rumored to dating co-star Nick Robinson and Jaden Smith.
