With the pair rumoured to have been dating since earlier this year, Delevingne confirmed her relationship with Clark to Vogue for July’s issue.

“I think that being in love with my girlfriend is a big part of why I’m feeling so happy with who I am these days,” Delevingne is quoted as saying. “And for those words to come out of my mouth is actually a miracle”.

She added: “It took me a long time to accept the idea [of being attracted to women], until I first fell in love with a girl at 20 and recognized that I had to accept it… Women are what completely inspire me, and they have also been my downfall. I have only been hurt by women, my mother first of all.”

Currently on tour in support of her aforementioned 2014 LP, St Vincent suffered minor injuries following a fall from a speaker stack at one of her recent shows.

Clark performed at the Tennessee Theater in Knoxville, Tennessee on May 31, where she climbed from the stage to the top speaker during one of her songs. However, Clark suffered a fall, bringing a speaker down with her and on top of a security guard working at the venue.

Clark later tweeted: “Patrick, security guard at Tennessee Theater in Knoxville, likely saved my life tonight… More importantly, Patrick is also ok. Thank god.” She also described the security guard, Patrick Green, as a “prince” for his actions.

Green, who suffered a facial cut but said he was “a little swollen but no headaches”, described the incident on Twitter, writing: “[Clark] was climbing the speaker stack during the show and the top speaker came down. I was under her and manage to push her… onto the stage with one hand and I tried to block the speaker with the other. I caught the corner of the speaker to my eyebrow. I’m just glad she’s ok.”

St Vincent is reported to have finished the show, later uploading a photo of her bandaged arm to Instagram.
