The singer has revealed she’s been in several relationships with other women, including “famous ones” whom she wouldn’t mention, and would consider herself to be fluid when it comes to the people she finds attractive.

“What I believe about sexuality is this: it’s a scale. Have I gone out with girls before? Yes. Have I dated girls? Yes, I have. And famous ones, but I’m not naming them. Even though people would be living for it – no! Have I fallen in love with a girl before? Yes. But right now, I’m in a relationship with a guy,” she says.

But Bebe also admitted she finds relationships with other women “too emotional”.

“The only thing I will say is that when I’m in a relationship with a girl, it’s just too emotional. The power… I personally cannot deal with that,” she adds. The ‘Meant to Be’ singer ultimately hasn’t defined her sexuality because she doesn’t want to be put in a box.

“It’s just so hard because everybody wants to put people in boxes, and I don’t like boxes, as you can tell with my music. Like, I don’t like boxes whatsoever.”
