Actress Ariana DeBose is a queer woman who isn't scared to embrace her sexuality. The young and talented woman is rarely romantically linked to anyone. But, there was a time when her name was associated with her alleged girlfriend, Jill Johnson. So, here's what you need to know so far.
Did Ariana DeBose Date 'Girlfriend' Jill Johnson?
Actress Ariana DeBose who started off as a Broadway actor is high on the success of her Hollywood career. DeBose, who has made it clear to her fans that she is a proud queer woman, is predominantly known as The Bullet on Hamilton and Alyssa Greene on Netflix's musical comedy The Prom, directed by Ryan Murphy.
And, while DeBose prefers to keep her personal life on the low, it's hard to track her love life and relationship status. However, there was a time when she was romantically linked to someone. Perhaps, now ex-girlfriend, Jill Johnson who is a prop master. So, yes, it's true that the actress was once in a relationship with Johnson.
DeBose met Johnson in 2013 at the time when she was touring as a Broadway actress for Motown: The Musical as Mary Wilson. Both had mutual friends. But their love story didn't start right away, but it did start with a friendship that later turned into something special.

As a matter of fact, neither DeBose nor Johnson realized what they had was something special and more than friendship. And, when work caught up between them that they didn't see each other for months, it was when things got real. Ariana realized she had a crush on Jill. Ariana and Jill didn't see each other for almost six months until one day when they ran into each other at a friends reunion.

As those six months were the time when both Ariana DeBose and Jill Johnson realized their growing feelings for each other, fate finally decided to unite them again. And, finally after six months of traveling and touring and taking breaks from work, they met when Johnson's friends invited DeBose for a catch up at Maison Harlem.

Likewise, the rest is history as DeBose collected the gut to ask Johnson out on a date right after that. The actress took Jill for a movie. And, so, in 2014, the lovebirds went official with their relationship. Ariana even mentioned Jill as the partner she never had and someone she could be truly herself.
In addition, at the beginning of their relationship, DeBose was working for Pippin while Johnson was working for If/Then. But, even after the two got together, DeBose and Johnson still faced their relationship issue of having to go without seeing each other for weeks and months. And, as of October 2015, Ariana and Jill were still in love.
But, are they still together? DeBose today remains super strict and keeps her lips sealed to share her love life in the eyes of the public. And, by the looks of it, it looks like the couple has unfortunately broken up, as of 2020. DeBose has rarely talked about her relationship publicly.
DeBose is highly focused on her blooming acting career and probably don't want any distraction to ruin it.
