JT Dishes On Her Relationship With Lil Uzi Vert: ‘I Found My Home With Him, My Safe Space’

"Once you find your safe space, you know."

Celebrity News

City Girls rapper JT, 29, and Lil Uzi Vert, 27, aren’t afraid to flaunt their love and appreciation for one another. Both rappers love to spoil the other with lavish gifts and words of affirmation such as the Miami-born artist gifting her man a Maybach for his birthday to the “XO TOUR Llif3” artist professing his love for his girlfriend in a series of tweets, the couple is undoubtedly in love.


JT, born Jatavia Johnson, gushed over her relationship with Uzi in an interview with POPSUGAR and shared how he helped her through pressing times.

"It made me a much better person," she said. "I feel like I found my home with him, my safe space. Once you find your safe space, you know."

The “Good Love” performer has had her fair share of ups and downs. Once City Girls began to receive fame, she was sent to prison for credit card fraud in 2018 leaving her group member Caresha “Yung Miami” Brownlee to keep the momentum going. She was released in 2019 and reportedly began dating Uzi the same year.

She also shared that she was experiencing some growing pains last year after moving to New York City which resulted in her isolating herself from everyone. "I went through a rough patch in my life last year, when I was very new with myself," she explained. "I didn't hate myself, but I didn't understand myself or my transition. It was hard for me to wrap [my mind] around who I was becoming, and I went into this dark-ass place."

"I was in a situation where I didn't really have support, I'll be honest, because I didn't tell nobody what was going on," she continued. "So everybody was judging me because they didn't know what was going on. I had to tap into myself to pull myself out of that."

She now lives with Uzi in Calabassas and appears to be in better spirits. JT dished on what it’s like living with the “Money Longer” emcee during her appearance on Yung Miami’s podcast Caresha Please.

“Uzi literally would do any and everything for me,” she said. “But I don’t flex it no mo. We live together, he pay all the bills. I don’t pay a bill. I don’t even know what the first of the month is! That’s real City Girl sh-t! Like I don’t pay a bill, I’m put up. Because b–h, who doin’ that?”
