Jhené Aiko and Big Sean were out of the radar for a couple of months, but the two recently came back to the spotlight to refute rumors that they have called it quits.
Aiko took to Instagram to share a photo of her and Sean all loved up. She captioned the image simply with “#mcm.”
Sean also took to Snapchat to confirm that he and Aiko are spending time together. Posting a photo of the “New Balance” singer, the “IDFWU” rapper said: “lil baby came out for the birthday boy.” Aiko reportedly flew with Sean’s family to Las Vegas to celebrate his brother’s birthday.
Even though the two have yet to formally confirm that they are dating, they have dropped quite a number of hints about their relationship. Many assumed that Sean was the person Aiko was singing about on her new track, “New Balance.” In the song, Aiko sings: “It hit me like a tidal wave/ Knew that I was in love with you right away/ Turned all my days into brighter days/ Even when people say what we do is not OK.” Aiko also referred to Sean in one of their concerts as her “next baby father.”
Though it has not been confirmed, the two may be refusing to talk about their relationship explicitly because Aiko is still in the process of finalizing her divorce from estranged husband Dot Da Genius (real name Oladipo Omishore). Aiko filed for divorce a few days before her new track was released. She cited irreconcilable differences as the reason for the split, according to TMZ. The singer reportedly did not ask for spousal support.
Rumors that Aiko and Sean were an item started swirling when they released a joint album, titled “Twenty88,” early this year. The two have been open about admiring each other. Rumors were fueled when they shared a kiss onstage during a show in June.
