Hayley Kiyoko became emotional during a discussion about her partner Becca Tilley's complex coming out process.

The two began to get together after a meeting in the Kiyoko's Expectations album launch event in 2018. They kept their relationship private until the couple came out in the 31-year old pop singer's "For the Girls" music video in the beginning of this year.

In the latest installment of Tilley and Tanya Rad's Scrubbing In thepodcast, Kiyoko spoke about the period during the period when they decided to conceal their relationship.

"When we started dating, I was ready to have a public relationship," said Kiyoko during the interview.

"When we were navigating her experience and where she was at in her journey, that obviously shifted. But it was worth it to me because I wanted to be in a relationship with her, and I never felt like she was hiding me."
