Brazilian singer Daniela Mercury, one of her country's most popular female musical artists, revealed that she is in a lesbian relationship with journalist Malu Verçosa.
"Malu is now my spouse, my family and my inspiration for singing," the 47-year-old star said on Instagram in a post including photographs of the couple.
Both women are wearing wedding rings in one of the images.
Mercury, the mother of two grown children, got a divorce late last year from her second husband, Italian publicist Marco Scabia.
With more than 20 million albums sold worldwide, Mercury is known for hits such as O Canto da Cidade, Rapunzel, and Musica de Rua.
