Supermodel Tyra Banks gave BET’s “106 & Park” host Bow Wow more than just an interview when she appeared on his show this week. The creator of “America’s Next Top Model” kicked off her TV interview with the 26-year-old rapper Wednesday by dishing about their past flirtations and then planting a passionate kiss on him.
“We have serious history," Banks, 39, said to the audience. "He had a little crush on me and was hitting me up on Twitter nonstop. I think he was talking about wanting to know what my lips taste like and stuff,” she said, before showing a scene from a prior kiss they shared on “The Tyra Show.” Following the clip, Bow Wow (real name: Shad Gregory Moss) can be seen freshening his breath before Banks drapes her legs over the rapper and engages with him in two noticeably passionate kisses.
“I kissed Tyra Banks on national TV. Not once, but twice,” dished Bow Wow during a behind-the-scenes interview with BET Wednesday. “Now I’m going to tell you what makes it so special… I went to her crib and kissed her, but then she came to my house on a whole 'nother network and kissed me again. How many of y’all can say you kissed Tyra Banks twice on the lips? I’m feeling good [sic],” he said.
Despite their kiss igniting a firestorm of requests from fans for the twosome to either confirm or deny a romance, both have remained coy on their status. “These stand 4my name or Tyra&BowWow?” Tweeted Banks on Twitter Wednesday, showing off a picture of herself sporting “T” and “B” initial earrings. Bow Wow has also commented on the kiss on Twitter by repeatedly retweeting fans' approval of his “relationship” with the model.
Banks was last rumored to be dating model Rob Evans, a former boxer and British native. The former Victoria’s Secret Angel denied their relationship on "The Wendy Williams Show" in 2012 shorty after reports surfaced of their alleged romance, claiming she considers Evans a “little brother.” But Bow Wow might already be taken: He was linked to “Basketball Wives LA” star Draya Michele in June.
