Tessa Thompson started acting at Santa Monica High School after being born Tessa Dunnington in Los Angeles, California, in 1983. She is the granddaughter of performer Bobby Ramos and the daughter of musician Marc Anthony Thompson.
Before she got the role of Jackie Cook on the hit TV show “Veronica Mars” with Kristen Bell, she was in a number of plays in Los Angeles. She was on the show for 22 episodes. Thompson has also been in “Cold Case,” “Grey’s Anatomy,” “Hidden Palms,” “Life,” “Private Practice,” “Heroes,” “Off the Map,” “Rizzoli & Isles,” “Detroit 1-8-7,” “Mental,” “The Initiation of Sarah,” and “666 Park Avenue.” The same year she started working on “Veronica Mars,” she made her first movie. “When a Stranger Calls,” where she played Scarlet, was her first movie role. Since then, she has been in “Make It Happen,” “Murder on the 13th Floor,” “South Dakota,” “Grantham & Rose,” “Mississippi Damned,” “Exquisite Corpse,” “For Colored Girls,” and “Dear White People.” Thompson won two Black Reel Awards in 2011 for her role as Nyla Adrose in Tyler Perry’s “For Colored Girls.” She was named Outstanding Ensemble and Outstanding Breakthrough Performance. She will play Diane Nash in the 2015 movie “Selma.”
Who Is Tessa Thompson Dating?
Everyone, it looks like Tessa is single and having the time of her life. She tries to keep her love life private, but the paparazzi just can’t leave her alone. The paparazzi have caught her in private moments with other famous people, which makes people wonder if she is single or in a relationship. But neither she nor the other person with whom she was said to be dating has ever confirmed the rumors.
And don’t think that her social media accounts will tell you anything about her relationship status because they won’t. Tessa wants to keep her love life a secret, and we must respect that. She might be dating someone right now, but we wouldn’t know because we wouldn’t know who. So, ladies and gentlemen, we think Tessa is single and may be looking for a relationship?
Tessa Thompson’s Past Relationships
We know that Tessa Thompson has been in a relationship with five people. PopSugar says that Tessa was linked to Grammy-nominated singer Janelle Monáe in 2015 when she danced in her “Yoga” video as a backup dancer. The next time they were seen together was at the MOCA gala in 2015. But the rumors really started to spread when Tessa was in a lot of Janelle’s music videos for her album Dirty Computer, which came out in 2018.
When Tessa did an interview with Net-A-Porter in 2018, that really made people think they were dating. Tessa said in this interview that she and Janelle love each other very much and that she doesn’t mind if people guess what they are to each other. But then she says in a tweet that she never said she was in a relationship. So we’ll never know if Tessa and Janelle really went out together or not. I think they did, though.
In 2019, the English singer Dev Hynes was said to be the second person Tessa was dating. People thought they were dating because they saw them together in different places. They were seen at the after-party for the premiere of Sylvie’s Love in 2020, where Tessa was seen getting close to the singer. We hadn’t seen them together since they were seen at Milan Fashion Week in 2020.
In 2021, pictures of Tessa, Taika Waititi, and Rita Ora hanging out together were questioned, and rumors spread that the three of them were in a polyamorous relationship. In one picture, Tessa kisses Rita, and in another, the three of them are very close to each other. We don’t know what was going on in the pictures, but I think it was just three friends having fun together. Tessa never came out and spoke about the situation.
Zac Stenmark, an Australian model, is the last person we’ve seen Tessa in a close way. On May 23, people in Australia saw her kissing him and holding his hand. We haven’t seen Tessa with him since then, so we don’t know if they are still together. So until Tessa comes out and says she has a boyfriend, we’ll have to assume she’s single.
