Jess Origliasso confirms Ruby Rose romance

Ruby Rose has rekindled her romance with with Jess Origliasso.

The 'Orange is the New Black' actress - who previously dated Harley Gusman for a few months this year and called off her engagement to Phoebe Dahl in 2015 - "reconnected" with her former girlfriend while shooting a video for The Veronicas' latest single 'On Your Side'.

Jess - who is joined in The Veronicas by her sister Lisa - said: "We've been friends for eight years, a really long time. And it's honestly the craziest thing. We just reconnected over doing this video, she wrote and directed it, and is in it with us and we just sort of fell in love."

The couple - who briefly dated in 2008 - fuelled speculation they had reunited with a series of pictures on Instagram and Jess, 31, says they want to find a balance between sharing their union and protecting their romance.

She told Nova FM's Kent 'Smallzy' Small: "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."

Though it has been eight years since Ruby and Jess dated, the 30-year-old actress remembers every detail of their romance.

Jess said: "She reminds me exactly how much last time definitely happened. She doesn't let me forget anything.

"I don't know, it's just a crazy thing when you care about someone for so long and then you have the chance to be able to reconnect.

"And we've grown up a lot, we met very early on and we were very different people."

And Jess' sister and bandmate is unsurprised by her sibling's rekindled romance.

Lisa said: "From the beginning I've always seen the chemistry and the connection there.

"[Ruby] has been a very dear friend. So obviously I'm like yeah babe, obviously you two are in this."
