Rumors are still swirling that Big Sean and R&B singer Jhené Aiko are dating. The pair hasn’t confirmed or denied the romance rumors but added to fuel to the fire recently with a steamy performance at Powerhouse in Anaheim, California.
Big Sean and Aiko, who make up the duo TWENTY88, performed their song “On The Way” Friday night in California. In video posted online from the show, Big Sean is seen wrapping his arms around Aiko and kissing her on the cheek as she sings. Later in the video, the 28-year-old singer flirts with Big Sean before kissing him on the lips and walking off the stage.
The audience erupted in cheers over the pair’s PDA-filled performance, but Big Sean and Aiko’s rumored romance has been causing some drama. It’s been rumored for years that Aiko, who has a daughter named Namiko, was secretly married to producer Dot da Genius. Aiko has never publicly spoken out about her husband and doesn’t post pictures of him on social media. But Dot da Genius confirmed the “Spotless Mind” singer is his wife in an Instagram post in March. According to E! Online, the producer wished Aiko a happy birthday by posting a photo of them presumably from their wedding day. In the image she’s seen wearing a long white gown and holding a bouquet of flowers, while Dot da Genius slides a ring on her left hand. He captioned the photo: “Happy Birthday to my gorgeous wife. Happy to be on this quest w/you!!!” Dot da Genius has since removed the picture. There’s also been rumors that once happily married couple is either divorced already or headed toward a divorce.
In April, Big Sean, who recently split from Ariana Grande, opened up about collaborating with Aiko for TWENTY88 saying that she brings out the best in him when it comes to music. “I trust her tastes and admire her style. She’s really surprised me, too. On this project, I feel like she’s really pushed herself and tried new things and new attitudes that I haven’t necessarily heard from her yet in her solo stuff,” he told USA Today.
