While Matt Rife has won the hearts of many on TikTok, girlfriend Jessica Lord ultimately has his attention offline.
Rife confirmed in October 2023 he and Lord were dating after rumors swirled months earlier about their romance.
“It’s an early relationship, about four or five months, but we’ve known each other for about a year and a half,” Rife said during an interview with “2 Bears, 1 Cave” podcast. “She’s wonderful.”
The comedian went on to gush about Lord and how supportive she has been when it comes to his career.
“She’s very smart. I love that. She’s never been insecure about the amount of attention that I get.” he shared. “She sees it the way I see it … a girl will yell out in the middle of a show like ‘F–k me!’ or something wild … and a lot of girls would be like, ‘You have girls yelling out to you in the middle of the show?’”
He continued: “I get off stage, she goes, ‘What the f–k’s that girl’s problem? That’s so annoying, you’re in the middle of trying out this new bit that I know you’ve been working so hard for, [and] now she ruined the entire f—king thing.’”
The twosome made their official red carpet debut as a couple in November 2023. Lord was by Rife’s side as they attended the Forbes Top Creators List Launch in New York City.
