Lil Uzi Vert - JT - Jay-Z's 40/40 Club Celebrates 18th Anniversary

Fresh off their energetic performance of “Just Wanna Rock” on The Tonight Show, Lil Uzi Vert told TMZ that they support the decision of their City Girls rapper girlfriend, JT, to start therapy. They added that everyone should “embrace themselves.”

JT shared on Twitter that she is “eager” to start therapy while encouraging her fans to do the same.

Many of her fans congratulated the 30-year-old City Girl rapper on the social media site adding that her public decision could “inspire” others.

Lil Uzi’s support may come from their own journey into wellness. They announced earlier this month that they are sober and that the songs from their upcoming release The Pink Tape, were all born out of their sobriety.

They told TMZ that being sober allowed them to choose better song topics and encouraged other rappers to do the same, saying, “It’ll change your life.”

The couple has had an on-again, off-again relationship since first being romantically linked in 2021. But, earlier this year, she gushed about her admiration for Uzi telling Angie Martinez that she is “lucky” and “fortunate.”

“I can say Uzi is a great man, no matter how the internet tries to paint Uzi,” the Miami native told Angie with a big smile, according to MADAMENOIRE. She added, “I’m so lucky and fortunate to have somebody like him because he’s so inspiring. When I see him in his bag, I’m like ‘I gotta get in my bag.’”
