Although the two have yet to confirm they’re dating, singer Chili, 45, has added fuel to the fire about a relationship with actor Nick Cannon, 35, after a recent Instagram photo. The TLC singer uploaded a selfie to her Instagram on Sunday night with a caption that read, “Waitin on him… Hurry back.”
The seductive photo features Chilli lying in a bed alone but makes no mention of who “him” is. In a July interview with People, Cannon was coy when asked about the relationship rumors. According to TV host, he was unfamiliar with the gossip.
“I have not heard those rumors,” Cannon said while calling Chilli “hot” and “amazing.” “I would be so lucky to be able to be called ‘dating’ her. This is all new to me. I’m not ready for titles and all that stuff,” he said. “I’m damaged goods! Who would want to date me? Clearly I don’t get it.”
Sure to make people speculate even more about their rumored relationship, the two have been seen together shooting a music video for Cannon’s upcoming song, “If I Was Your Man.” While the song is inspired by TLC’s 1992 hit “What About Your Friends,” the video appears to be inspired by the music video for TLC’s “Creep.” In a photo obtained by E! News, Cannon can be seen wearing blue silk pajamas, reminiscent of the silk pajamas worn in “Creep.”
Even though Cannon and Chilli are being secretive about their alleged relationship, multiple sources have said the two are spending time together. “Nick and Chilli [have] been hanging out on the low,” a source recently told E! News, adding, “[They’ve] been friends for some time and just recently this summer they have been hanging out romantically.”
