Jessica Mauboy Opens Up About Her Relationship
Jessica Mauboy has opened up about her relationship with boyfriend Themeli Magripilis in marie claire's 'Fashion Meets Fitness' issue, on sale now.
The 25-year-old singer revealed to marie claire that he keeps her grounded by talking to each other daily.
"We talk every day. We both come from the same world, and that’s important. We’re both bush kids, and he still goes out hunting and fishing. It brings me back down to Earth. He’s become my spine, my backbone," Mauboy explains to marie claire.
Mauboy also says that being away from him is hard when she is travelling so much for work.
"Long distance is hard. It’s the hardest, actually. We still have our little moments when we rant on the phone, but having that distance has made us stronger. It’s something we both have to work on constantly, but knowing that he is there for me means so much to me."
After recently attending the ARIA Awards with Mauboy, she explains to marie claire that he's very supportive of what she does, which has been a learning curve for him.
"He knows how passionate I am about music and he has grown to love the industry for me. You know, he’s been on tour with me, and he’s been to events with me."
"It’s a crazy world but I can see he respects it, and I respect him because of that. It’s crazy because he still lives a normal life [in Darwin]. When we’re together he gives me a bit of that."
