Ruby Rose paid for her girlfriend Jessica Origliasso’s sick mother to fly first class to New Zealand for a surprise visit.
The ‘Orange is the New Black’ star arranged for The Veronicas singer’s mum Colleen to jet from Queensland, Australia, to Auckland while she and her twin sister Lisa were shooting their new music video ‘On Your Side’ a few months ago because she knew how close they all were and wanted them to be reunited.
Speaking on Australia’s ‘Matt & Meshel’ radio show on Wednesday (09.11.16), Jessica said: “Our mum’s been sick and she’s always been an amazing support system in our life and our family’s life. When we were filming ‘On Your Side’ over in Auckland, she actually surprised us by flying our mum out.”
And the 30-year-old actress’ sweet gesture clearly went down well with Jessica, as it lead to them rekindling their romance.
The couple briefly dated in 2008 but they went their separate ways later that year and have been dating other people since.
The 31-year-old singer said recently: “We adore each other. We’ve supported each other through the last eight years of our lives, personally and professionally we’ve really grown together.”
The pair fuelled speculation they had reunited with a series of pictures on Instagram and Jess says they want to find a balance between sharing their union and protecting their romance.
She explained: “When we first got together way, way back, it was hard to know how much to share.
“Now we are quite protective of what we have, so obviously being able to be open enough but keeping a lot of it for ourself is something that we’re very conscious of and I think it just depends on the people what you’re willing to share.”
Ruby’s rekindled relationship comes just a few months after she split from Harley Gusman, whom she dated briefly this year, and a year after she called off her engagement to Phoebe Dahl.
