Cute couple alert!
Looks like Jessica Sanchez was becoming more than just an international sensation on American Idol Season 11. She was also getting romantic with co-competitor DeAndre Brackensick.
Jessica, who finished in second place, reportedly confirmed her relationship with DeAndre during a Ustream chat yesterday by answering a fan question about whether she has a boyfriend. “DeAndre … Hahah,” Jessica wrote. “He’s my boyfriend. Love you guys. Byeeee!”
DeAndre also confirmed the news via Twitter, writing “Yes jessica is my girlfriend.”
No word yet on how long the two have been together, but it must have been bittersweet when DeAndre was eliminated from the Top 8! Both are natives of California, and they’re close in age (Jessica’s 16, while DeAndre’s 17).
