Da Brat Marries Longtime Girlfriend Jesseca Dupart Marry In Georgia.

On Tuesday evening, Da Brat and her “twin flame” Jesseca “Judy” Dupart married in front of 100 guests in Fairburn, Georgia. Brat was walked down the aisle by Jermaine Dupri

On Tuesday February 22nd — 2/22/22 — in Fairburn, Georgia, Da Brat and fiancée Jesseca “Judy” Dupart got married in a civil ceremony in front of 100 guests. Brat was walked down the aisle by Jermaine Dupri while Dupart was escorted by her brother Damon Dupart Sr.

Prior to their ceremony, Brat–born Shawntae Harris– and Dupart chronicled their relationship on WE tv reality series Brat Loves Judy. “Everything about her made me want her to be mine forever,” Brat told People. “And I felt like I knew it not much longer than from the day we met.”

Brat also addressed Dupart as her ‘twin flame’ and the two opted to have their wedding on on palindrome date.

“We’ve been calling each other twin flames for a while. So this date, 2/22/22, is a significant event. We just didn’t want to miss it because it comes once in a lifetime,” Dupart said. “It’s relevant. It’s just real significant to our relationship. It signifies angel numbers, and it also is reminiscent of twin flames.”

At the reception held at Horse Mansion, Keith Sweat and Le’Andria Johnson performed while guests Kandi Burruss, Ricky Smiley and more arrived.

Brat didn’t publicly come out as gay until 2020, well after she met Dupart in 2017. She shared that their relationship has made her unapologetic about her identity.

“I think it’s important that people express how they really feel,” Brat said. “So many people live for other people and they live by the judgment of other people. I think it’s very important to live for yourself. Whatever makes you happy, don’t suppress it. Don’t hide it. You only live once.”

The wedding will appear on the second season of Brat Loves Judy, which premieres on WE tv in June.
