It's been a rumour for a while but this is the first time we've got confirmation: Ruby Rose and Jess Origliasso from The Veronicas are dating again! Jess and her twin sister Lisa have been close friends with Ruby for years and years — and Jess and Ruby dated briefly back in the day — but it was a recent collaboration that saw the relationship go to the next level.
Ruby is the star of The Veronica's video for new song "On Your Side," and the trio have been filming in New Zealand over the weekend, as Ruby is shooting a movie there.
In the film clip, Jess and Ruby play a couple going through the normal ups and downs of a modern relationship. "It's a little confronting," Jess told Herald Sun. "Ruby and I laugh about how people will be seeing us in real time, now immortalised forever in this video. But she's incredible. I'm so proud to be with a woman I not only adore but I respect and admire highly. She is the kindest, most ambitious, most compassionate woman."
Confirming their new relationship status with Kent 'Smallzy' Small on Smallzy's Surgery tonight on Nova, Jess said, "We have been friends for eight years. A really long time and it was just honestly the craziest thing. We just reconnected over doing this video, she wrote and directed it, and is in it with us and we just sort of fell in love . . ." Happy days for Ruby and Jess!
And yes, Lisa's given the nod of approval: "From the beginning I've always seen the chemistry and the connection there, she has been a very dear friend. So obviously I'm like, 'Yeah babe, obviously you two are in this'."
