JLS star Oritsé Williams goes official with fellow singer Kazz Kumar

·2-min read

Oritsé Williams has made things official with Kazz Kumar after hailing her as “amazing” and “genuine”.

The 33-year-old, who shot to fame in 2008 when he became runner-up on The X Factor as part of boyband JLS, met the singer and marketer through social media.

He has since revealed they have taken the next step in their relationship, as Williams has now introduced Kumar to his mother.

Speaking about his blossoming romance, the Beat Again singer explained: “We’ve kept our relationship real. It was important for me that there was no interference or distraction and we could experience something genuine.

“We met through social media. She messaged me first. She knew what she wanted and came right for it. She’s amazing.”

The pair have been seeing each other from around February, with Kumar both posting a series of loved-up snaps with one another on her Instagram page.

Williams then decided to introduce his new beau to his mother, who suffers Multiple Sclerosis, after the UK’s stringent lockdown measures have started to ease.

The star admitted it had been difficult not seeing his mum as she was shielding due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.

“She’s healthy and safe. My mum is always so positive. She’s an angel on earth,” Williams told The Sun.

“She takes everything in her stride including her multiple sclerosis, which she has been struggling with over the years. I saw her recently but I couldn’t hug her.

“I’d stayed away since the pandemic started. That was difficult. Once we saw each other it was amazing.”

He added the emotional meeting between his mother and his girlfriend Kumar saw him well up.

“We spoke for hours. It was the first time my mum and Kazz met,” Williams said.

“I was looking at one queen and another queen.

“It was beautiful to watch them together.”

Kumar is Williams’ first public romance since he was found not guilty of rape during a trial last year.

Williams is now focusing on JLS’s comeback tour, working on new material with bandmates Aston Merrygold, Marvin Humes and JB Gill.

The boys will be back on the road in June 2021 after Covid-19 saw their original tour dates shelved.
